Been a while since this crappie spot produced but today was the day! Tied on a clouser minnow hoping for a pike on the fly rod! 2nd cast and Bam! Fish on. Not a pike but a big fat slab!  Couple casts later,Bam! another slab! I thought, man im on'em now! Guy who was fishin a bit down the bank runs up to where i am and stomps out on the dock  to cast exactly where im casting to! Yup! Next dozen casts,when i could get a cast in, not a hit! The school spooked and....... gone! I was not happy! But i dont own the water! A bit later after he left had a nice little pike hit the clouser and chew it up! All in all a fantastic morning! Cheers!

Those must have been a riot on the flyord.  For their size, I don't think there is a more vicious fish out there.  I catch them on full sized spinnerbaits all the time bass fishing.

i run into these things throwing cranks against rock piles in the kawarthas. I also like catching them through the ice, but to catch em on the fly rod would be the ultimate.

 

Really really cool to catch crappies up shallow. I guess now is the time for that!

I have been a fly rod guy since the mid  70's,  bass fishing in the weed's and bull rush's ,  if there only 1 fish in a body of water, it would be caught on a fly rod.
