Me and a friend hit Hoover after I got off of work today at 1pm. We didn't start fishing until 1:45pm. We caught 3 small gills, 15-20 crappies, and 1 largemouth. The crappies were between 10-14 inches, which we had 3 13-14 inchers. We were using bass and crappies minnows fishing with bobbers. It didn't matter if the minnows were alive or not. Also, they didn't stop biting after a Thunderstorm went through the area. We were fishing the northern end of the lake from the bank.
