Good to be back
« on: January 28, 2017, 12:52:00 PM »
Fished The CAT tournament last weekend at lake Bob Sandlin with a buddy and it was hands down the worst day of crappie fishing I ever had.  There were some guys that posted some awesome weights out there and it really showed us how much we still have to learn. 

Well it was good to get back out on Palestine yesterday.  Hit some piles in 16-20' first and caught some decent fish then went and made a drift for some white bass and hybrids. Caught a bunch of them but best part was we drifted over several huge submerged trees and laydowns in 30-40' that were loaded with crappie.  As we drifted over the trees we stuck several toad crappie on bright orange (love that bright orange in the winter) and blue/chartreuse 4" gulp minnows on 1oz head. Dropped way points on them then when drift was over went back and worked them over with crappie jigs.  Wind got up big time so tried a few spots out of the wind then called it a day.  Thump was vicious today, especially on those big baits when we were drifting.  BFOD went 2-5

sounds like a real fun filled day.   :clap

and sure beats anything I've done lately.   I've tried the Joe Pool Marina docks a few times recently and have had a single hit.  I talked with some of the other slip holders, who all stated fishing has been terrible there this entire month.

So it's good to hear that you are finding nice ones on your home lake.
