Great catch. My catch today wasn’t very interesting. Caught over thirty fish but only 12 were keepers and a few were tail squeezers at that. Wind was up pretty good.
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" ?
