I was gonna go to big marine.. Last minute change of mind had me and a friend out on coon... West of the channel, 14 ft deep. Lots of ice. 25 to 30 crappies in about 3 hours. Almost all of them in the first hour (around 3:00).. Were they big?? NOT AT ALL. All were small, but pick through the best of em and you could have a good meal.. all the bait shops are telling me that no one sells shiners any more so I didn't try for any pike.
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
