My dad came in from Midland to do some crappie fishing a few days ago. We only fished a few hours a day but had a great time and caught a few fish. We caught 16 keepers in a few hours yesterday right before the storm. They were a lot shallower than they have been and we just happened to stumble across them in 10-12 feet of water. We didn't really take many pics but here's dad with yeaterday's BFOTD that was actually landed... I had a little issue with dropping the real BFOTD off the side of the boat...

We went back to Murvaul today to pick up where we'd left off. I was glad to meet TroyKing and his son at the ramp this morning. We headed to the same area we were catching them yesterday and couldn't buy a bite. Dad caught one on the first drop at about 10' that we would have had to stretch to call 6 inches long and that was it. We slowly worked our way back toward deeper water without getting so much as a bump until we hit the 17' mark. We finally started picking up a fish or two. Eventually we came upon the tree of the day (TOTD?). Almost as soon as we started catching fish, the base of my trolling motor broke in half. I noticed it was torquing a little to one side and then "bam" it broke. I had a trolling motor sticking out 90 degrees with the boat and barely in the water but we were finally on them and kept running it, ha. We picked up 8 keepers off that one tree (had to throw a few back) and decided to call it a day. Bought a new trolling motor on the way home and headed to Caddo tomorrow to do a little sight seeing and fishing. Only finished the day with 10 but we had fun and that's what counts.
