hit Alum today, 6/9/07 for some crappies and cats. it started slow, with no hits on the jig I was throwing for crappie, and only 1 run on the mess of crawlers on my cat rig (probably a carp?), that I didn't hook up with. decided to move over to the rip rap on 36/37 and did decently well. in an hour I caught about a dozen crappie. mostly small, but a few keepers. they all went back though. put some cut shad on my cat rig but nothing happened there. doh. anyway, it was nice to catch some fish, even if they were small. all the crappie came on 1/8 oz chartreuse jig. I threw a roadrunner for a bit but I only had 1/16 oz and I couldn't seem to get them out far enough to reach the crappie. all my fish came as far away as I could cast at the very beginning of the retrieve. they did not seem to be (really) shallow today.
