What was working over the 4th

6 posts in this topic

for bull 'gills and eater size crappies...

*unnnamed lake* (don't ask wink )

stained water, clarity about 9 feet at best, edge of weed bed in a narrow channel, 5 FOW...

white 1/16 roundhead hair jig, tipped with Crappie Craws drifted along the edge.

_really light hits_ but there if you're paying attention.

just had to ignore the 10 inch snot rockets that were hitting ever so often wink

I was having pretty good luck tossing a beetle spin. they were taking it the second it was hitting the water. I lost that lure to a pretty big Northern... mad

Due to boat traffic, the crappie strike was low. But Sunday night and Monday, the crappies were biting on everything!

Over the 4th I found 3 large schools of nice eater-sized crappies pinning minnows against the surface on a small local lake. I caught a crappie on nearly every cast using a Salmo Hornet. Needless to say, it was a blast! I also had two very nice bluegills attack the Hornet, which were released. I did keep a limit of crappies to fry up.

    • Keep an eye on those trees. They tend to jump in the way when your not looking.    won't be the same without ya. 
    • Truth be told it was the outstate money that originally built the metro into what it is. Without that funding St Paul would be nothing more than St Peter is today. 
    • Can't argue with the last part
    • I wonder if a person gets an extended warranty if that will help?  I have a 2011 with 5.3 silverado and all is good today so I'm thinking og looking into that.
    • My last kayak adventure was less than stellar wound up in the drink. And it was a cold drink at that. A very memorable paddle up to that point. It was the first time I had ever been on the water with snow on everything. It was awesome.    Alas, my 'yaks are all put up for the season now. Waiting for next years adventures to begin. 
    • I am toying with the idea of doing a little calling this weekend. The moon is nice and dark, so the first and last few minutes  of daylight might make something happen. It all depends on what I stumble into for sign. The majority of the deer hunters have been done for a while, so the free meals are going to be getting harder to come by. 
    • The fans I was talking about are 12 volt and only 1" deep. Putting them under the heater might not do the job because the heat from heater rises. If you have room in the lower cabinet on your heater you could mount one fan inside and blow the heat out the grill on the front of the heater.
    • I thought last night's game was surprisingly entertaining considering how low scoring it was for most of it. Not sure if people outside of MN and TX would agree. Rudolph dropping that ball in the end zone was devastating - IMO it was a bigger play than the final one. As much as I hate to see us continue to lose, I honestly have never seen a team lose so many starters at key positions and still be competitive. Says a lot about our coaching, depth, and players buying in.   Will be interesting to see what we can do with our OL without having a 1st rd pick this off season. As others have said, it wouldn't be a bad strategy to use every draft pick we have on the linemen.      
    • Yes. Unlike you I have a job and a life.   I'll just say that whatever it's about you are right because that's the only thing I could ever say that you would possibly agree with me on. I won't get in the way of your libertarian fantasies.
