Default Crappie

Fished in the cold wind and rain Saturday. Probably caught 75 but all but 5 were over 9”. Sunday things turned around and we caught very few small ones. Threw out the jugs while we fished and picked up 7 channels and a blue cat. Ended up with 37 crappie and 8 catfish. Forgot to take a pic until after they were cleaned. Figured you guys would like this pic better anyway!

Crappie is so white it makes the channel cat fillets look like something is wrong with them!

That's a fine sink full of fine eating. I envy the fun you had.

Forgot to mention that most of these were caught on minnows 18-24” below corks right in treetops. You had to find a hole in the thick stuff and drop it straight down, then straight back up. Really a lot of fun

If I can get home early enough I have a crappie hole that needs my attention. Bass Pro had their 9 ft crappie rods on sale so I bought one. Should help with position and whatnot.

Caught these with a 9’ but I really needed my 12’ with a strong backbone. Gotta snatch them out before they know what’s happening or they’ll hang you for sure

I’ve give up on that place. It’s a long trip and I can never seem to catch much.
