Title: Made it out for a bit
Post by: olsarge on 10/23/20 09:05 UTC
Monday morning I made it to a local city pond.  My original intentions were to test out some new (for me) finesse jig heads but that plan got sabotaged.  Temps were 41 degrees with a pretty stiff breeze and high humidity so it actually felt chillier than it really was.  Weatherman calling for rain later in the afternoon.  One of my rods was already rigged with a 1/16th oz head and a swing impact 2 inch paddletail.  My second cast was inhaled by an 11.5 inch crappie (this would be the smallest crappie of the day).  I wound up with 7 crappie most in the 13-15 inch range.  At 1030 the rains came so I unfortunately left (I took the fish with me, ha ha).  Weatherman got me again but the fish fry was worth the effort.  Peace out

Its always great when a guy can ace out the weatherman for a couple hours, especially if he digs into some keeper crappies. Happy it all worked out for you.

Yesterday we had temps cooler than your 41 by a few degrees. Humid too. You're right though.....it feels colder than it is. Still couldn't wear gloves yet.

olsarge sounds like you got some mighty nice size crappies and got a meal to boot.
