    Went out yesterday to do some crappie fishing. It was my birthday and memorial day so i figured something good had to happen. Bought a pound of minnows and we used every last one of them. Not sure how many crappie we caught but it was over 100. Lots of fun!!! Heres some pics.[/ATTACH]

    Man,those are some nice looking crappie,Calvin. I know those had to be some fun on ultra light tackle. Those are some of the nicest crappie I have seen for awhile.

    It was a blast. Almost as fun as catfishing.:wink: Im not very good at locating crappie when they are deep so when they are shallow like they are now, i take advantage of it. My brother doesnt like to go catfishing with me but when i say crappie he is sitting outside waiting on me.

    If anyone around southeast iowa likes to go crappie fishing, go to your local lake and find a downed tree that is laying in 2-4 foot of water. Tie on a little jig and a minnow and drop it down about 6 inches from the bottom. If the crappie are around that tree you will have a fish on in about 10 seconds. Good luck!!!


    My crappie binge is almost over. We are going to have to chase some Flatheads soon Gordhawk.

    Sounds like a plan to me Calvin! I'm looking forward to it,because I have never specifically targeted Flatheads.
