Awesome fish and greatest story with your pops. That's the fishermen's life.
9 inchesI was there yesterday, too, Chanc. You guys did much better than us.
We scratch out 8 keeper crappies and plenty of throw-backers. I obviously need to find better spots. 🤙
Is there a length limit on the crappies at Mosquito?
If you’re using live bait, you’re going to have that problem consistently. Try using small plastics tipped. Shorten up a baby shad or try their itty bits. Set the hook with first movement of the bobber or pole tip. They don’t have hands so it’s got to be in their mouth.I fished the northwest side of the causeway wed. from 8 to 11am caught two 11" crappie and at least 15 small perch.
That is not so great. South side was really blown out. My question is for all who fish there. Amy suggestions on how to keep the little perch from swallowing the hook so fast. Do you have that problem with the "bobby garland baits" ?
Half the fish went to my parents, everything but the 3 big crappie was set aside for a fish fry for some friends after I get some more. Each of the 3 big crappie was enough for one meal; I added them to my pile of pre-portioned, frozen fish meals.Aang-nice box of fish. When is the fish fry??
Yesterday I was south of causeway 13' was where I found them caught around 25 8 came home, when the wind switched to the east the bite slowed..Me and my bro in law had a pretty good day on the north end yesterday. Didn’t fish deeper than ten foot water and put thirty five keeper crappies in the box. All on plastics.
I am the Dad. I thought everyone might be interested to know that I caught most of my fish on this trip using frozen emeralds leftover from our Marblehead perch trip last November.Went to our usual spot at Mosquito and did pretty well; kept 16 perch, 9 crappie, 1 bass, and 1 bluegill. Biggest average size on the crappie I've ever seen and on the perch outside of Lake Erie. My dad got 3 FO crappie and a FO perch including the biggest crappie (14 3/4") I've ever seen and the biggest perch I've ever seen outside of Lake Erie (13 1/4"), plus the bass and a couple of cats.

What's the matter Colonel,,,,, you guys give up on Berlin?? ;>) (I was waiting for some GOOD news from you.?)I've got a brand new ultra light with some 2lb test I would love to wear out. Gonna have to get up there and give it a go this weekend.
Chaunc are you just using side imaging to find beds right now? Or are you targeting some other areas if you don't mind me asking?
