Could it be? The size of the bait makes all the difference now? Was bass fishing a pvt pond last week, and caught hardly anything. Downsized to a bluegill lure, and started popping bass left and right. Crappie fished all morning today. Started with 3 dozen crappie, 1 dozen bass minnows. Ended up catching 2 crappie on small minnies. Moved locations, and picked up a can of wax worms. Started nailing crappie, and also a few nice gills. My last couple trips have learned me to throw out small.
