been posting my catches on gfo. then found out all the fish fans i used to know are here at ogf. i've been reading on gfo about sporadic crappies on hoover fishing in the deeper waters. i've been fishing the shallow brush north of the last bridge,(baldridge ramp). sitting in 5' water fishing into the brush, my neighbor and i have done real well. haven't been skunked, yet. in the past week and 1/2, it has gotten better each time. also getting alot of c. kitties. 2 have been in the 5# range. crappies have ranged 9" to 12.5 inches. most were 10 to 11". they've been timid, and just lipping the bait. i found it best to let them take the bobber down for a while, pick up the slack, then when i see my line going out, set the hook. i'm using a slip bobber at about 15" deep. last couple of times, they really turned on 45 min. before dusk. bass minnows have been my only bait. tried a little jigging with jelly bellies, but there's too many snags you can't see for the stained water. gonna storm tonight, so i'll hafta settle for catching a buzz,(seagrams and long neck bud lite). maybe tomorrow will fare better. i feel the itch for fishing!!
