Do you fish from the bank or do you have a rig?

Crappies through the ice

Post by owlbait » Mon Feb 25, 2013 6:45 pm

Been hammering the crappies the last 3 weekends. My buddy KHalverson is my guide. Just finished another meal of fried crappie filets washed down with some homemade wine. YUM! Go get em if you can :D

So, do I need catch pics, cooked pics, empty wine bottle pics, or a copy of the sewer bill? :eek: Looking for another try at them this weekend. :D

I just want the GPS reading, I dont care what the truck looks like. :rolf:

this is kinda like the summer I found a spot the bluegill liked to hang out at the edge of a drop off. I was pulling in BG in July on a regular basis. I looked around me and there are 3 boats around me about 50-60 yds away, waiting for me to leave. they didnt know it but they could have pulled right up beside me and joined in. anyway I ran out of bait, had more than I wanted to clean any way so I packed up and left. I looked behind me and they were racing in with their trolling motors. :rolf: turned out one of them was a co-worker from another department. he told me a week later, he had sat there for 2 hours watching me and waiting. :lol:

Small SECRET lake in Newaygo County. Would love to fish St. Clair someday. They grow BIG in that lake.
