Burnt a vacation day from work today to search for some crappie, but with a change of pace. I forced myself out of my comfort zone by fishing open water with the sonar rather than pitching to timber. I also added a new to me bait in for the fun of it. A Rat-L-Trap tiny-Trap. Eight hours on the water produced several small guys, a bluegill and two small bass. All were suspended at 10-15’ in 16-25’ of water. I also got to see a small buck searching for love and maybe the biggest red squirrel I have ever seen swimming across the lake.
