Wife texts me while I'm at work and says "Hey, lets go see if the crappie have moved in yet. Its been pretty warm!".
So, went and got her a dozen minnows, and off we went. Started off really shallow and nothing, not even a nibble. Then moved to the end of the pier where there are some brush piles. She was fishing in about 8ft of water, about 18 in deep, using the ol' zebco slingshot. Drag set real light!
Then the shad started poppin all over the place. Next she tries a small swim bait!
Sorry, No crappie shallow yet, but she had a blast. (don't even ask what I caught)
