Well as we all know what a great day to let the wind blow you around :D Waited tll about 5:00 and took father and friend out for some crappie fishing. And as i expected tuff fishing Crappies were not shallow like friday they moved back out deeper. So found spot in calm east side of a bay and started jigging out in 10-12 foot water not much happening there fish but not hungry,so moved into 7-10 foot and started catching some males and a few females. Wanted chartruese tails tonight. HAD to sink jig to bottom and start slow reeling back to boat were tight to bottom and not chasing had to be right in front of them. Finally wind died down and about 8:15 we hit a good deeper water wood spot i have and plowed about 15-20 crappies real fast 8 12-14" ones. Made for nice batch of crappies we kept 26 10"-14" crappies with 3 saugeyes all small and thrown back. They are there and will bite but you got to put it right in front of them right now. Couple calm days coming in a row and they will be back shallow again. Hope to try again tomorrow night. Here is a picture of some i kept after buddy grabbed some :)

Just wondering if fishslim ever eat chicken or pork or beef. Counting all his post and catch, you must have a commercial size freezer to store all those fish! Gotta admin you're pretty good at this ;)
