It was nice and calm for the first few hours Saturday morning, even a little cloud cover.
Hit a few spots then wandered around. We happened to be near the boat show and surfacing sand bass near Clear Lake and the island. They started later Saturday morning due to the cloud cover, I guess. Don't tell anybody, but we cast our crappie jigs out there... all of 20 feet with an 1/8 ounce jig.
It didn't matter, we caught sandies for about 20 minutes, then moved back to crappie jigging.
We have a clicker to count how many we catch, but we suck at it. I guess when you're having fun catching crappie, too focused to remember the clicker.
We thought we ended the day with 36, so I brought home 18. I sent a text to Glen and asked him to count his because we usually miss one or two. We had missed six. We had 42 instead of 36. It is a good thing our trolling motor broke, or we would have been over our limit.
The big girls liked the black emerald shiner. When we caught all those Sandy's, we could see the little shad that they were chasing. BES matches the hatch! Thanks again to Ken Gaby for coming up with that color scheme and especially to Todd & Belinda Box for making them for all of us crappie fisherman!
I was cleaning fish this morning at 7, but it was already hot as ____, and no wind. So, I resorted to having my old man cleaning station... with a fan!! lol Sure did help.
Here's a video of my "old man" cleaning station. https://youtu.be/RZq0JxCxBu8
Also, love the American Angler electric filet knife. I never though I would spend a hundred bucks for a knife, but so glad I did. Love that sucker.
While we're on the fish cleaning... also love this Game Saver vacuum sealer. https://youtu.be/UjojbJJxVfw
Good luck out there!
