I joined the boat show about 7:45 with my 5 and 7 year olds. It took us a little while to find a school that would stay up for more than a minutes, but once we did it was a fish or two almost every cast until they had enough about 9:30. I've been using a small Pop R with a 1/16 oz white crappie jig tied about 3 feet below. They usually hit the crappie jig, but sometimes both. I went back out after dropping off the kids and found them again over towards the 121 cut, had acres of fish mostly to myself.
It did seem most people were well behaved, like you said, but don't those guys know they make trolling motors for pontoon boats!?
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after. Henry David Thoreau
