went to a buddy of mines pond this evening, started out looking for bass but soon realized that the crappie were active. just about every tree in the water had crappie around it. so i dug out the micro sized tube baits and went to work. i ended up catching 7 crappie between 10-12 inches long and one nice 8 inch bluegill, my son josh caught one 11 inch bass and one 11 inch crappie on micro tubes too. he was using a chartruese tube , i was using a pearl tube with red flake in it. probably would have caught alot more but only really fished the tubes for about an hour. oh well, we had alot of fun and it was a BEAUTIFUL day !!!
