Well, WalleyeBoy, Woodtic and myself finally got to air out the boat. Wasn't like they were jumping in the net, but not bad. We caught over 30 crappies with a couple of bass and sunfish to boot. Fished the northwest side in about 8 feet with crappie minnows and small long-shank gold hooks using slip bobbers. Funny, we were out there for a couple of hours with just a few caught, but when we set the bobberstops at about 3 feet, we started catching a lot more fish. In fact, the majority were caught in the last hour. We got on the water about 9:30 am and had to leave at 2:45. Water temp was 55.5 where we were with a pretty good wind. It was better then a kick in the butt!
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
