    The bite is gettin' hotter! Mosquito crappies are starting 2 turn on pretty good! Still alot of small ones being caught but the keeper numbers are growing pretty fast! The slabs seem 2 be biting before dark (about an hour before) and it has been slowing up after dark but not too much..... the smaller ones are biting at dark with an occasional slab here and there(Threw back probably 15-20 small ones)! I brought about 20 home (i ran out of minnows!!!...by the way the bait shop is low on medium sized minnows...I usually get a mix of small and medium!!!)....my uncle got at least 40... (he stayed later and just called me 2 give me his count)! Bobber and minnow about 3 1/2 ft. down:G! We're supposed 2 have good weather until at least the weekend so get up there and "get you some"! I'm gonna try and make it up as much as i can so hope 2 see u there!........Pictures: My stringer,and 2 of the 4 12+in slabs!

  9. Tuesday night was a good one. I'll be out tonight and report tomorrow. Same as Jimmy said, you have to weed the little ones out but you'll be able to get some nice ones.

    waded south tonight but did no good. drove across the causeway and there were very few parking spots left. even the tubes on n. park ext. were elbow to elbow. ran into a couple of buddies fishing the refuge road and the best they could do was a couple of small crappies. said they struggled last night also.
     
  12. Waded south end last night with my buddy. It was a good night... first time we got limits this year. Fished from about 7:30 until 10:30. Most of the fish were caught in the dark. Nice size as well. Only released 2 or 3 between both of us, as most fish were in the 16 in. range. Big fish was a fat 20 incher.
