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!
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
