    Well I went out to the Lake to try some Crappie fishing today.

    Nice! Minnows or jigs?

    my biggest problem is finding large concentrations. crappies willingly take jigs but minnows are less work most of the time. however i think all will agree they are fine eating.--dennis

    Thanks guys, I used a Arkie #1 spinner on a 1/16 Arkie rigged twirl tail,White, from Wal Mart. Then when they slowed down I went to a pink and chartreuse

    1/16 jig. I caught about 30 but kept the best 25. Was a good day for me.Oh yea 10 ft. of water. Also I guess I should have put this in Dipbait's fish 2011 thread.

    I like them scaled because I like the skin and chew on the tail.But yes I did fillet this bunch.Have to feed the wife's family.


    This was the best fishing day I have had in 3 or 4 years.Fun.

    I've got to see if my friend with the boat wants to go out on Palmer. Or, ask a different friend where to walk to on Palmer to try for some of those from shore.

    As a kid, I spent a lot of time pulling those out of Lake Okeechobee in Florida with my Grandad. He'd fry 'em in corn meal by the dozen. MAN, they were delicious.
