Finally landed some soft water fish... Crappie

Recommended Posts

Finally was able to get some soft water fishing in today... Original plan was to take the little man but he had a change of heart so I dropped off the kids at grandmas and took to wife...

 

Literally first cast

We proceeded to get into crappies with a few OOS perch and bass mixed in...

 

Fun couple hours in the sun with no kids around...

 

Hot baits were the black/green Houdini fry and pink fin s shad

What a colorful spot Lol

 

Nice job!

Lol

 

Yeah

 

Shore spots that hold fish are few and far between around here... And most are very noticeable to other locals...

Nice job Mike, got out to my local spot, back bays are still ice covered, lol!

Some canals/creeks still have ice here...

 

The ones that don't are booming with life... Mink... Frogs... Turtles... Minnows... Birds...

 

Felt a little like summer...

 

Much needed feeling

Way to go Mike. stopped at a local creek that I always wanted to try for ice out crappie and tossed a microjig and a pencil float and caught a 12" perch after 30 seconds, thought I snagged on something, what a surprise, almost summer like, exactly. Unfortunatly the only fish in that creek. Spent another 1\2 hour, nothing.
