    Well I decided to head to a pond instead of the river. I went to Cripple Creek to get some minnies hoping to catch some crappie. Well I got a surprise.

    second cast and caught a small bass about 9 or 10 inches. short while later, caught another about the same size. ok, so where's the crappie :confused: waited a while with an occasional minnow thief, then on the one rod I had with a bobber, down goes the float. then I feel a heck of a tug.

    I see the bass. fight it with my ultralight with 6 lb test. turns out to be a 6-7 lb largemouth. Approx 23 inches or so long. no I did not have a tape or scale, but comparing it to the bass I have mounted, it was close to that. It was released of course. What bait you ask?? about a 3 inch long minnow on a 1/32 oz jig made by me! Like that matters! :p


    So, I had a heck of a good time for sure, but where's those darn crappies I was after.? :D
