Loc: A small blue spot on planet ea...
Not to mention needed hammer
We were torn between Bob Sandlin & Palestine. We didn't have the time or the funds to fish both the tourneys and as I've caught a ton more crappie on Sandlin,
We decided to go pre-fish where our odds would be best thumb

11-19; Bob Sandlin
We got a later than planned departure, hence a later launch.....Missed the early feeding pattern all together, but nobody told the crappie loco_2

I stuck a quality fish immediately hooked


Even the not-so-desirable fish were slamming the Super Fry clap


Belinda started the day, missing bites, getting frustrated, swearing a little roflmao
But once she got her "Tadpole" mojo groove on, she was a slab slinging machine woot



Although we didn't find a huge concentration of fish, we caught several that went into the box at every stop but 1 clap


We caught some fish in 24-28 fow, but the majority came 35-37' deep in 49 fow
I marked our braided line at 35', but most bites came when you lowered the mark 2' underneath the surface banana

Belinda said this fish could have eaten this can if her thumb had not been in the way OMG


We were only keeping 11" or better fish, but did have to scoop up a couple of smaller ones that ended up floating on the surface.
I was keeping a close watch, measuring all the maybe fish just to see how the day went.

Here's my "Pretty in Pink" Jigum bead counter rolleyes

All the beads had been pulled to the bottom and all but 4 were slid back up for a total "Keeper" count of 46 whip
We kept 28 of the better fish thumb



Belinda used the "Tadpole" in Black Emerald Shiner & Purple Passion, I used the Super & Mr Frys in PP
We could have easily caught a double limit, but my back was screaming and Belinda had said she was still mad at the crappie on Fork.
I agreed to take her, if we could leave now and only fish till noon

11-20 Fork

We got a pre-dawn blast off, and I believe that was the 1st time I remember launching at 154 and NOBODY else was there. The parking lot was vacant hmmm

Our 1st couple of stops only produced a keeper each, unless you want to count the endless bass and sandies that were attacking our jigs realmad

At the 2nd stop, Belinda stuck this fish and her drag went to slipping banana


Made another stop, caught some nice fish, but nothing we wanted to put in the box.
Seth pulled up to a pile with some clients about 100 yds away, so we idled by and briefly discussed the slow morning bite.

After we left there, I found a bp in 32 fow that lit up my screen like the a 4th of July firework show breakdance
It was GAME ON!



Belinda & I were discussing how alot of guys that stop by, stare in disbelief when I show them the Super Fry and explain that's all I drop after it gets real cold
This 9 1/2" crappie had the complete bait entirely out of sight in it's mouth


hooked

The pile just kept giving up quality fish clap

We were throwing fish under 12"s back

When it slowed down, we graphed and found some new structure, but didn't catch any fish we wanted to keep.
I said "It's about time to go", but here lies the problem when your "Thump" loving spouse knows some of your spots......
"But we haven't fished the so & so spot yet" bang

I steadily worked towards the ramp and finally got her to agree it was time to head in cheers
Belinda again used the Tadpole and I used the Super & Mr Frys and although we dropped both the BES & PP, the BES was MVP of the day

We kept 14 more that were all over 11.5"s


The same length fish from Fork were thicker and fought hard than the fish from Sandlin

What is the water temp up there? Palestine was 65 yesterday and I found fish as shallow as 15 and the deepest I fished was 24.
I am sure it won't be long before they go deeper.
Great job.
Thanks for the report

Awesome trip!...love yall's baits, I purchased some super frys last year but still haven't used em yet cause I've been tearin em up on the slab bug! I'll definitely have to give them a shot soon. I can also see them being very effective for bass on a drop shot!
