Crappie fishing in Lake Tarpon?

Thinking of trying Lake Tarpon this weekend for Crappie. Anyone fish Tarpon for Crappie recently with any luck.
Or should I take the long drive over to Central Florida to fish the chain of lakes?

    Most of the crappie fisherman have been about 800-1200 yards out from the mouth of anderson park and drifting south, day and night. I doubt they are gonna spend that much time doing it without catching some fish.
    I fished the south canal for bass this weekend, and didn't see any crappie fisherman. I think the snook/tarpon took a toll on the crappie around the bridges in the canal. The crappie should rebound because I think most of the snook died 2 weeks ago based on the number of dead ones I saw in the lake. I would start on north end of the lake.
