    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. :thumbup:
