    Sorm passed well North of us here Kirk. It hit in the Henderson/Evansville area and something like 22 deaths confirmed.

    Still thinking about your offer. May have an idea on selling your property for you.

    Back to crappie fishing ! I spent the entire day yesterday out in the cold rain putting crappie sets in the lake. These thinns have been ready to go in the lake for several weeks(had nice weather during that time) and being the old duck hunter I am , I had to wait until the most miserable day in months came along to get out on the lake---go figure. :confused: If I catch pneumonia and die the location of those sets will go to my grave with me. :D

    Are crappie sets your version of brushpiles/crappie condos?

    Never heard that term before.

    Good thinking.. See the bad weather let you have the water to your self. That way there was not a lot of people watching you put them out..
    But it would be nice to see some pictures of what you put out.

    I have been seting up 10 new 16 ft spider rigging rods for crappie..
    Hope to finish them up today.

    Gee guys---The "sets" are just 5 gallon buckets with cedar trees stuck in concrete in the bottom of the bucket. I usually put several in a single place--just scatter them out a little. The height of the tree varies with the depth of the water. The ones I put out this time were put on a drop off in 8 ft of water, that way when the lake comes up in the spring the "sets" will be in about 15ft of water and extend up about 7 feet. I use cedars that have shed their needles---it works for me. Last year there were over 500 keeper crappie taken off my boat dock "sets" by the ladies in the neighborhood. I put the ones intended for us guys out where the ladies cant find them. Here, the "keeper" size limit is 10" on crappie.
