After my fishing trip 2 weeks ago I have been dying to get back out there. Last weekend was a no go due to the 30+mph winds but me and Dad were able to get after it this morning.

The morning started off windy and almost cold. We had reservations as to how good the fishing would be with the post frontal conditions but you cant catch them if you don't try. First stop we were looking for Sandbass and Hybrids that should be feeding on the spawning shad. There was nothing to see on the graph so we headed farther south to look for Crappie.

We dropped the trolling motor and started looking for concentrations of fish but it wasn't happening. I don't know if the front had them scattered or what but we adjusted our plan and just started bouncing around from spot to spot and stayed in fish all day long. We ended up bringing home 37 with a good mix of both White and Black Crappie with some being mega toads! Of course I lost the biggest Crappie of the day and it came while Bass fishing. I flipped my Texas rig up to a spot and told Dad there would be a fish there. Sure enough the Craw never reached bottom and I set the hook. I assumed it was a Bass and when I went to flip it in the boat it pulled off and hit the side of the boat before swimming away. It was a true giant!

For those that don't know the difference the White Crappie is on the right of the first pic and he Black Crappie is on the left. Notice the Black has just speckles everywhere and the White has a faint vertical bar pattern.

I figure we threw back 3 for every one we kept so we probably caught 125 total.

Also, White crappie have 5-6 dorsal spines, and black crappie have 7-8 dorsal spines.

Good day of fishing.

Nice haul.

I got a female friend that would give you a hard run for amount of crappie caught per hour. She is a machine to the point her fiancé almost doesn’t like fishing with her.

Got them all cleaned and bagged this morning. Set aside a few to fry later. One Sandbass managed to swim into the live well. Bet you can’t pick him out of the line up. roflmao
