As of last year I gave up on Hoover as there are always way too many people in my favorite spots and I seem to catch nothing but little crappies in those places. One of the spots that used to produce, no longer produces anything. Long story short, I went to one of said spots and it started out very promising. First cast....BAM! 13" white bass. Next cast.....BAM!! 11" black crappie. For the next 2 hours I continued to catch fish one after another. The only bad thing is that they were all 5" to 7" crappies. I'm sure I caught at least 50 of them. I was getting them every cast and sometimes two at a time. Yeah, I'm done with Hoover until I get a boat. I mean it was fun, but it's a lot more fun when they have some size to them. I wish somebody would go to Hoover and work on cleaning out all those little ones. Oh wait, there are a few people already doing that. Heard a rumor of some folks leaving with 6 buckets overflowing with fish before I got down there. Should have listened to my gut instead of a friend.
