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.
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
