For the past 2 years Health has kept me indoors pretty much all the time and missed hunting and fishing. Slowly getting some strength back after cancer treatments. My friend wants me to go crappie fishing. Never fished for them but he says they are as good eating as a walleye so I am in man!. We went snooping for some jigs the other day and he swears by a Rapala sinking lure that flutters on the way down. Expensive little buggers! He said yellow marabou tailed chartreuse jigs work well too. Naturally none to be found around town right now. Have about 3 weeks until ice is off and the water is warm enough the fish get active. Two years is a long interval between fishing days of fishing! Who is the crappie expert around here?

If you like to eat fish, Crappie Fishing is well-worth mastering. ( b.t.w., walleye is the best-tasting fresh water fish I've ever eaten.) 

I just fillet a chunk of meat from each side of the Crappie...so you would need to catch as many as you can to make a meal.  

My tackle is 2 lb. fluorocarbon throwing colorful 1/32 or 1/16  oz. jigs.

Well they are predicting 75 and sunny for Friday. We'll be gathering our tackle and off to get my NR license for MT. Sounds like a wonderful afternoon on the banks of the reservoir.

I went few times and did well on Crappie, mostly fish for Cannel Catfish, close to home fish for Suckers.

Looks like I’m laid up this Summer.
