Crappie are located throughout the chain of lakes and they are one of the more popular fish during the spring time as waters warm and fish move into the shallows.  Fish the vegetation and wood in the bays and along the shorelines to target some of these early season favorites.  After the spawn, the deeper weed edges will usually be your best spots.  These fish do school up in open water as well though and they will follow bait fish schools, so if you find one of these schools from summer through fall, they can be a blast to catch in deep water.
