Sunday & yesterday! Not great but not bad either
« on: September 30, 2015, 01:00:14 PM »
Took Jpenwell out Sunday and seemed like most of the trip we were eliminating unproductive water/structure! Though we marked fish everywhere we went, they just weren't takin what we were offerin, well, except for the dinks! Our last stop we did manage a few keepers but the unders still out numbered the overs!
Then yesterday I took Jason Burton out as his trailer had a flat and he hadn't been on the water in 3 weeks. Once again, dinks ruled the day but we did manage to catch a couple good fish and maybe a dozen to 15 keepers. Anyway, here are a few pictures. first 2 from Sunday and then from yesterday...BTW, WHO IS THAT MASKED MAN!?!?As for specifics, my Grape Limeade & Snow Ball were the preferred jigs, fished around bridge pilon's and deep timber and the fish were holding around 12 to 15 feet down in 17 to 22 fow. We marked a lot of bigger fish about a foot off the bottom in the timber but they weren't taking anything we sent down to them. The timber was hungry though and ate several jigs! :BrickWall

The 2-3 good fish came off the timber Martin. Mostly "cookie-cutter" blacks from the 2 bridges.

Was the same story for me yesterday- lots of shorts.  Marked a good many, had lockjaw for some reason.  Fall bite is coming.  Nice report!
Don't sweat the small stuff!

Sorry Martin! I had a "cerebral hic-up" for a moment there! Actually 1 of the 3 good fish cane from timber & as you noticed, 2 came from bridges! It's a real rush when you catch 5-6 that average 5" with 1 @ 11" then there's a resounding "THUNK" and the ol PA rod doubles from the weight of a near 2# crappie! That kinda stuff will forever keep me coming back!

Nothing beats catching crappie with a good friend.   Except maybe catching big crappie with a friend.  :)
