Spent about 4 hrs at Hoover last night from 5-9 looking for some crappie. Fishing was TOUGH early on in the ME section caught about 5 in the first 2 hrs. Finally found some decent size ones on the MW section during the last hour. Fishing about 15-18 ft down in about 28 fow. Couldn't keep the minnies in the water long right before dusk it was a feeding frenzy. Ended up with about 30 only a handful were 9+ though. I put em all back cuz I didn't feel like cleaning any fish last night. Tough decision, eat fresh fish or get sleep before the work week. I keep trying out new crappie baits and I have to say the beetle spin was not a success last night. Not 1 crappie. Not to say its a bad bait but not on the menu last night.
