Me and a buddy of mine braved the cold Sunday Morning and fished from 9:00 to 3:00 for crappie. We managed about 40 crappie with 6 keepers with the biggest just shy of 13 inches. Didn't feel like cleaning them so they were returned to live another day. I also caught a 12 inch smallie. All fish were caught on a minnow in 50 degree water. I also ran into ShakeDown and his father-n-law who also was braving the cold. Shake, if the water level holds and the weather stays in the 50's we should be able to getting into some real nice crappie in the next few weeks. Atleast I hope.
