after debating with myself till about noon,whether or not i wanted to beat myself up again today,i won the argument with myself and headed out for some crappie fishing.i had high hopes after yesterday's dismal results with fishintiger.(i still think my partners are jinxes):rolleyes::D
even my wife believes it now,LOL.
anyway,got on the water and tried drifting for staging fish with little success.i then decided they should be moving shallow,and headed for a couple of my favorite spots.first stop produced a few fish,but went dead in short order.i then proceeded to spot #2.ran across littleking and sean frame in the general area of spot #2,and they said things were slow.i anchored up and within a few seconds after my first cast,had a nice fish on.the action continued for the rest of the afternoon till i ran out of minnies and energy.
i ended the day with a total of about 30 crappies from 9"-12",with a few more shorter ones mixed in.not a fast and furious day,but eneough action to keep boredom from setting in.
all fish were caught in 2-3 feet of water on slip bobber/minnies and roadrunners with crappie thunder tails.surface temps went from 60 to 65 degrees.
fish were still biting when i left,but i was too worn out to throw the roadrunner anymore.
what a great day to be out on the water:)

troy,i think the warmup just brouht some males up in some spots,but lots of fish are still staging deeper.marked lots of them in deeper water,but got tired of fighting the wind and had a feeling the shallow spots i fished might hold some.should only get better from here.at least the size is better than last year.

I would have much rather been fishing then doing yard work. :( I got me a nice sun burn from yard work. I'm paying for it this morning. We'll get them next time.

You might have to keep that spot a secret, misfit. I haven't caught anything in less than 12 ft of water. You would be overrun with "friendly" fellow fishermen. When I was catching fish/losing fish I would hear someone yell out "hey, he's catching fish." I wasn't even slaughterin' 'em like you were. I got enough for a nice little fish fry without leftovers, though. :) Just a question, which method worked best for you, the jig or live bait? I strictly jig, but just curious.

spidey,most fish came on minnies,but i'm sure jigs would work as well.didn't throw the roadrunner very long but got several fish on it.when they really move in,it won't matter what you throw:D
then i really like throwing a rr and sometimes it's a fish on every cast:)
that area is really no secret,but still doesn't get too crowded most of the time.and i don't mind company as long as they're not ramming my boat or casting into it;)
i've been know to even invite other boats to fish beside me:)

Was up at twin bridges at hoover and fished with minnows all around the shoreline by the north bridge from 7-10pm also had 2 poles with shad on the bottom. I couldnt beleive it with the conditions but we didnt even get a bite in 3 hours. I told ya misfit CURSES are real! I think im gonna give up shorefishing Hoover I really have been Skunked the last 11 plus trips up there. All and all I cant complain though Beautiful night and my little cousin had a Ball cause I actually let him cast and bait up himself! Its funny how little things like that can make a kid so excited:)
