Haha! I should have known.
I'm with you on tough time for crappie as well as better days coming. Good job getting grandkids out to learn from grandpa!Nice to see you getting at least a few. This (mid/end of Sept)time frame has always been a tough time for me. I guess the summer schools start breaking up and do something. Maybe they just quit feeding because they all have sore lips and they're tired of minnows that bite back. We marked a ton of fish but they just wouldn't bite. Water levels are stable and temps are upper 70's and up so I'm not sure why.
Last week I took the grand kids out and we only caught a total of 4 fish; 2 crappie, 1 cat and a hybrid striper in 3 1/2 hours of fishing. A couple of other friends didn't catch much either.
I'm really looking forward to the water temps dropping down into the 50's and low 60's.
Much better days are coming.....
