Deep night search for crappie continues, Monday night the Penthouse: Mixed results. Fish were there in quantity, Crappie and yellow bass. Fish were not there in Quality. In a little over an hour, caught around 20 crappie, and about a dozen tiny yellow bass. Bite was fast and furious. Alas, here are the three biggest, with anything asssociated with the word big in this case, a strictly relative term, lol.:
Ok, so how about some "next day" Midday attempts? Set out to a north Irving pond full of huge sunfish, hoping to get a few for a fry. Big fat zero. BUT one of them green trash fish took a liking to my red/chartreuse 32nd. oz. tube with an UNPAINTED jig head, got his pic taken and was quickly released to fight another day.
Pack up, head to an Elm Fork tributary that usually has a decent sandie spawn run. Right in the city! Well, no sandies in the overly flooded creek that at this moment has virtually no current, so it may not draw in too many, if any sandies from the river this year, but it has drawn in its usual population of black bass, and one of them just could not resist my silver/black Blue Fox inline spinner.:
He too stayed just long enough for a photo op, then eagerly returned to the creek to look for the perfect spot to fan a nest to lure that purty young thing making her way up from the river to find the perfect suitor.
