As the spawn winds down...
« on: April 15, 2016, 02:09:22 AM »
The crappie begin loading up brushpiles in the 12-17 fow range and also the piers, boat houses # docks. My oldest grandson and I went out for a short trip to just see how things were progressing in that direction. We weren't disappointed. We caught a lot of fish though culled through lots of unders. We did end up with a dozen that came from both docks & brushpiles. I'm taking a friend out for about the same time period tomorrow but to a different part of the lake. I'm hoping for another productive day. Here are a couple pictures of today's take. Brady had a great time, but I told him he was gonna have to grow into that shirt!

Looks like a good trip.  Which jig worked best for you?  That Blue Pearl is awesome on Lake X. (hahaha)

Mike, Grape Limeade still seems to be the winner here but my Green Goblin was getting some looks too!

To date the grape limeade is my favorite.  But I haven't tried every jig I've received from Pepop so that may change.

Then I have the hundreds of jigs everybody sent me in December.  The only way I can fish all of them is to start spider fishing and use one jig per rod until they are all tested.  It's going to be hard work testing all those jigs but somebody has to do it.  :sigh    :ROFLMAO

Heading out early this morning, first morning trip in quite a while! Reports are that the morning bite is better so I'm up for testing that theory. Hope to have a good report later on.
