    Ducked out of work a little early and managed to get on the water around 4:30pm. Conditions were overcast with a decent breeze coming out of the North, and surface temps of 62-63 degrees. I setup on a point where the wind was blowing into it and dropped my line. Within the first minute had a nice 13" FO crappie! For the next hour or so I was able to put about 12 more keepers in the livewell. Then I noticed the gulls going crazy on a flat next to me. )Thought it might be the elusive WB everyone's been looking for.) Motored over and dropped my line and immediately got bit - more crappie. Fished that flat until 7:00, fish were on the feedbag big time and had the shad penned up against the bank. Brought home 40+ keepers and threw back twice as many. Once again, tube jigs and crappie nibbles were the ticket.
