Who's got the gear out and is ready to go? I do and I'm so ready. Got the drill all warmed up and running good. Went thru the jigs and I'm about to order my wax worms. Hey Frank and Don I might not be to the gathering to awful early. I may stop in Aurora at a private pond that is just plain FULL of 13 inch Crappie. May have to turn the party into a fish fry also. Is there an ice on any of the ponds out there yet?
