    Had a fun day on the lake today. Found a large school of crappies hiding in the shade caused by a bridge (1st clue). Most ran in the 6 to 8" range but we did manage a dozen keepers with my son catching the largest - just over 14". We also caught a couple of keeper perch and about a half dozen juvenile white bass. All fish were caught on jigs - 2" tails with white being the hottest color. We tried to keep track of how many we caught but lost count as the action was fast and furious, many times we had doubles. Ok, now for the (second clue) - its a long run from the main ramp with a 9.9. :)

    Hit Tappan again today (5 10 04) and had another great day. Wanted to fish Clendening, Piedmont this week (vacation) but why leave a good thing. Three of us today caught just about every species that swims in Tappan. Loads of saugeyes and crappies with some largemouth and white bass to top it off. Most of the saugeye ran small but we did manage 9 keepers from 15" to 23". We had one crappie that measured 14-1/2". The 'eyes were tight to the bank in less than 4 feet of water.

    Corey, we never made it to the spots that you suggested but will definitely give it a try later this week. Always appreciate you guys at Cripple Creek - great service, bait and advice. :)
