Fishing was good this morning!! Was targeting crappies stated out at 6am the bite was non-stop. Caught at least 50 crappie with the usual dinks but mostly slabs between 9-12 inches. All caught using a jig called slabbuster in 1-5 fow. Done well casting away from the stumps and reeling toward them. Fish seemed a little spooky and this helped me stay on the fish longer.



Went to the creek to see if the whitebass were running. Fishing pressure is high right now. Never seen so many anglars at hoover.:D Waders, bankers, and boaters were trying there luck. Did not see anyone catching any. Talked to a few folks that said they caught 2or 3 early in the morning but that was it. From what i saw its not started yet but its very close.



Here is the catch of the day!!!

Nice job Mike! Wish I could have been out there with ya', but work has been busy this year. Hopefully this rain coming won't screw up the bite like it did last year, cause I'm shootin' for this weekend!

Took the boat up the creek(Big Walnut) this afternoon. Monday 4/30. Water was dirty all the way up. Not much action at all. Few dink crappies and small white bass. Very slow bite. Didn't look like much going on from the bank either.:(
