Went to Rayburn Saturday. Went out early. While I rigged my new 10' ft proangler rod and baited it with some new thermocline micros I just got in, the wife pulled in 5, yep 5, good keepers on one of my BP's. And they weren't dinks either. Sheesh! I tried for a while with several different colors and configurations. The Solar lunar chart said it would be good until 7 and sure enough at 7:30 it shut off like a switch was pulled.

So just so I didn't have to listen to the "told you so's" I started using minners. don't judge me too harshly, I'm a mere weak mortal. peep rolleyes

We ended up with 14 keepers(nice fish) a few were over 12 inches and one went to 14. We threw back numerous dinks and a whole bunch of lil green ditch pickles.

I'll keep trying

Minnows will work and they will catch crappie, bass & catfish. They sure will turn a slow jig day around.

Very true. Looks like a nice day on the water. A good crappie fisherman always has minnows around in my opinion. Crappie are finicky fish. You never know what they want

I always have minnows onboard! Old school I guess but they help me fill the live well.
