Well, it was a success. Maybe not by everyone's standards, but by mine it was. Ended up with 7 crappie total, all dinks, except for 1 that was just a 10 inch dink. Our biggest mistake was not getting enough minnows. I couldn't buy a bite on a crappie jig. I had a huge thump that broke off too.
All crappie caught near timber north of Tickey Creek in about 20 feet of water with the fish suspending at about 10 feet. Also caught about 4 channel cats while crappie fishing.
Went over by the power plant to see if any sand bass were biting and there were a TON of those little 6 inch sand bass schooling. We ended up catching tiny sand bass, largemouth, and even yellow bass. We finally left at about 1 pm when we realized that the fish were all 6 inches long.
Overall, a good day. Just can't wait to go back with more minnows and to hopefully find some larger crappie.
