May be picking up
« on: October 08, 2015, 10:13:04 PM »
Me & Jerry went out for a while today and for the first 3 hours it was 1 here, 1 there and no real size to them. We were a little frustrated so we resorted to some concrete bridge pilings. We were pitching a 1/16oz or 1/24oz White Lightening jig's out on 12' of line over 22 fow and let it settle to straight down. If no bite by then it was dead stick for 15-20 seconds then a 6" jump. Almost without exception we would get bit as the jig hit the top of the jump or just as it started back down. We didn't keep any so it's just a guess but I'm pretty sure we caught a double limit with less than a dozen unders. No big fish, though I lost a 2#+ trying to lift it in with the line instead of the rod. GRRR!! Most were solid 11 1/2" to 12 1/2" fish. It was a fun day on the water.
 




Pepop's Lake Palestine Jig's are Truly Multi Species Jig's! This was just 1 of at least 6 doubles! The rest were all crappie!

Makes two of us.  But I'm usually gone six weeks at a time so it will still be awhile before I get back to join you all.

Outstanding!  Do you ever use a net?  I've lost several lately bringing them in the boat but I don't like using a net cause it's always in the way....I may have to re-think it.

I checked on my slip during the rain break this afternoon and found several were fishing their slips today.  They all reported they were catching some nice sized crappie.

So it appears this rain didn't slow them down any.
