Well I told my self I was going to learn to crappie fish no matter how much it hurt. Since I gave up the big CC and got the yak there is no excuse not to target crappie sometimes.
Found a tree on Lavon 16 fow. Got some minnows and restrung some rods with 6# test.
Got there about 8:00 and not too long to catch a dink. Then a few more, then 4 keepers even though I didn't keep any.
Then 2 of these big boys.
Finally ran out of minnows so I knew it was time. Jigs
Was not confident to say the least. Then my first on a jig.
Wasn't a keeper but next one was.
That was a LOT of fun and I may have caught the fever. Caught 5 on jigs and missed a few bites. They wanted some movement and it took me awhile to figure it out but it was fun learning. I know next time I go and plan on keeping some I won't even sniff one.
Will probably be bugging you guys with questions the next few months so be easy on a rook like myself.
