    If you guys have a boat and want to fish, I would suggest you go to lake of Egypt and fish the north section of lake as close to the cable/bank on the north and east side. Lots of crappie.

    I thought they were getting hungry and had the fever to fish some open water. Egypt is good during this time of year. Yes, even for bait.:smile2:
