SLAB from Friday night

Recommended Posts

On Friday night I caught by far the biggest crappie of my life. It was a fat 15 1/4 inches. Caught it about 30 minutes after sunset on a rattling jigging spoon tipped with a minnow head. I have never mounted a fish before but this one is going to the taxidermist. I caught him through the ice in the Alex area. Here are a couple of pics:

Congratulations on the nice fish Nate. Many productive panfish waters around the Alex/Glenwood area.

What a way to kick off the ice season, and we're not even into December yet!

she's a beauty. you know that just means its all downhill from here right?

Pfffffff. The party has only just begun. Now if your wife would let you off your leash once in a while we could get out after them together. wink

Hopefully I will make it out in the metro area this weekend! Things should be in good shape soon with this cold weather.

Did you weigh her? I caught 15.5" about three years ago and put her back. I got a photo with it first that didn't turn out real great, but I always thought about a graphite mount from the photo.

    • No, no it looks like it was carved.  
    • I'm going to give it one last hoorah tomorrow morning. Going to be a quick effort before work but I've got a couple toms patterned pretty well. 
    • Have 2 pair of Costa sunglasses and cases for sale. Very good condition. $80 a pair FIRM!!! Only selling because I bought new prescription Costas. Live near Elk River. 
    • Cool, but that Goldeneye looks a little stuffed stiff. 
    • Here are a couple of pics of ducks nesting in tree cavities. We have a goldeneye and a hooded merganser. 
    • Spring is exploding right into summer across Wisconsin. You would never know that just three weeks ago the Northwoods was covered with ice and snow. Memorial Day weekend kicks of the unofficial start to summer and many of the reservable campsite at state parks and forests are booked. The best remaining camping opportunities can be found in the non-reservable campsites in northern state forests. The lower Wisconsin River continues to run high, but there were signs of sandbars beginning to emerge in some areas as water slowly drops.Universe in the Park astonomy program begins this weekend with program at Blue Mound and Kohler-Andrae state parks.Photo credit: UW-Madison Dept. of AstronomyFields and forests have greened up, and regular rains have kept fire danger low to moderate across most of the state with just a few areas still in high fire danger. Through the spring fire season 639 wildfires burned 1,800 acres; 53 structures were destroyed and another 441 were threatened, but saved.Wisconsin's northern zone musky season opens this Saturday and spring fish assessments are showing they won't be disappointed with what they find, with many fish over 40 inches netted and released. .
    • P. S. Seasoning has a Memorial Say sale of 20% off everything plus free shipping on orders over $30.
    • Definitely blacks.  I haven't hit my blacks spot yet but matbe this weekend. 
    • Had a decent breeze last night so wasn't too bad.  
    • I would be out a morning or two if I still had the tag.   Afternoons must be a sauna in a blind.   We hunted in shorts and t-shirts in early May and were still hot when afternoon temps reached around 82 - 85 degrees.
