...When you don't bring any crappie rods with you. I was striper fishing on Whitney last weekend and scanning some new areas on the way back to the ramp when I saw these trees just covered in fish! They looked like crappie on the graph but they were all so big I wasn't sure. Since all I had was my striper tackle, I dropped a 4" shad down there on a 3/0 circle hook with 20lb line and BAM! got smacked by a 16" black crappie. Every one of those is a 15"+ crappie! I wish I would have taken some more screen shots because it was unreal how many BIG crappie were down there. Never seen so many big crappie in one place. I saw probably 80 or more crappie all that size on side scan. Not leaving home without at least one crappie rod anymore.

Awesome image! That's every crappie angler's dream shot! Hopefully you saved a waypoint!

I didn’t take a pic of the crappie. We were worn out from catching striper all morning and ready to head in.

What a great picture. Hope all is well. You need to stop by Aquilla. It’d be nice to see you again.
