Me, fish and pictures....
« on: 04/02/21 11:48 UTC »
....just don't seem to like each other.

This is one the of 11, 12 3/4" plus crappies taken this morning. Of course the fish had other ideas of a good picture and decided to torque around as the snap was made so you can't see the whole nine yards. And the camera went wet right then too. This crappie taped out at 13 3/4". Male no less. Of the 11 crappies we kept this early morning only three were under 12 3/4" and those three were all the females we had. The bull crappies are something to catch and today they reigned. Started fishing at 6:15 and it ended at 8:20. Very narrow window of bite activity this morning. When the bite slammed shut I told my buddy it must be my 8 oclock pill time and checked the watch. Yup. Pill time.



We had some light breeze when we got started. By 8 we had a blow. Right now at near noon we have 30 - 35 mph sustained.

Wow it looks  like it was  a darn good day out.   Now is that  a lake up by you where you were fishing?We have  a lake here that is polluted by Crappie and if you get a 12" out of there your doing darn good but you have to weed through a million little ones to get anything with size.  So far the biggest ive caught was 14" but I believe there is definitely some bigger ones in there.

Those lakes that are loaded with small panfish, we call pickeled lakes!  Once or twice a year we load up on those small ones, clean them up and pickel them!

No pickles here Gary. The fillets off these crappies are as large as walleye fillets and way better eating.
