Loc: A small blue spot on planet ea...
Redsnappa and I had planned to go to Bob Sandlin yesterday as the water level according to the "Water Data for Texas" showed it as only being 4" high.
Then I got some reports from locals saying that that wasn't the case and the bite was extremely slow bang

We decided to go back out here on sense in wasting gas for a poor bite

I've been catching some nice fish, just not many and a ton of dinks

12-29-15 w/Eric

Yesterday morning started off COLD & WINDY, with a water temp of 55, but no crappie in the box realmad

About 10:30 I found some fish and RS & I started slinging fish in the boat.
We were catching fish in 27-32 fow and the key was the jig had to be moving slowly cheers

At approx. noon, we decided we better count our fish - We had 30 and only a few dinks banana

Ended the day with 33 woot
I'm not certain if the water being 5 degrees cooler was the reason the fish decided to play, but it sure didn't hurt thumb

No 2# fish, but 4 that were in the 1.75 range and a lot that were 12-14

All fish were caught on Black Emerald Shiner & Purple Passion Fade, yup, RS prefers the 1st batch of PP that Chart faded hmmm

Great, I was out with Slade, getting a tune up, and before 1130 it appeared to be slow. Great job in finding some fish.
