Loc: A small blue spot on planet ea...
I'm sure most of y'all have heard this tale of WOE

While I lived on Cypress Springs, I prayed for East winds!

Yesterday, I guess I had looked at the forecast day, thought it was supposed to be 73.....Not, it was 82 loco
I didn't give that a second thought, I was already itching to go fish

You know when your first drop gets slammed, it just might be a good day thumb

Caught 7 quality fish at my 1st stop.
After the dink fest at Tawakoni last weekend, I really needed the change of pace woot

Fished a couple of new spots I graphed and a couple of Oldies, but Goodies, picking up a few here & a few there hooked

Needing 8 more to finish my limit, ran to another Good spot.
Fished it like I normally do, but only caught a few dinks hmmm
I then backed off to some deep brush right beside the "Loop" tree and the bites were elbow rattling banana cheers

Just as I was about to finish my limit, got a small bite and started reeling it up, when suddenly, I got the second thump
and my rod tip dipped under the water cyclop
It was a very brief battle, then my line went slack and I reeled up a 7-8' dink with a tore up tail!

The very next drop, I got a solid THUMP
After a not so brief battle, I landed my "Customary Ditch Pickle" roflmao roflmao roflmao

BFOD 6.63# OMG

I finished my limit and was back at home before noon pollo

Fished in 17-24 fow, early was catching fish 8' deep, but had to keep going deeper as the sun got higher.
Last fish were caught 22' deep in 24fow

All fish caught on 2" Tadpoles in Monkey Business And Lime Glo-Treuse


Check out this bream bed I found. There's a fish in almost every bed OMG

When that hand don't go past a crappie gill plate you know it's a goodern....

Nice catchn....

I've found there too be a bunch of BOLOGNA in the crappie world....

Too many to name and some of it is from some of the top players or well knowns....

East winds, light line, bright days bright colors, cloudy days dark colors, muddy water dark colors and the list goes on and on....

Didn't see the ole bucket mouth in your cooler, did you catch it before the pic? LOL

Nice catchn Brother.... it's always better catchn instead of fishn...
Jigging; it's faster than chasing a minner in a bucket!
