Yeah, I spent yesterday afternoon and part of the night out on #3. Fishing was a bit slow. Caught about 20 crappies and kept 5 that I gave to the guy letting me fish in his house. 22 to 25 feet was the ticket. I used tiny flu flus with no bait. Everyone out there thought I was crazy, but I outfished them all.
What was really interesting was we had a camera down and looking around and we had a huge muskie swimming around for about 20 minutes. Kind of hard to gauge how big it was, but by the way it was swimming, it looked very big. It actually came right up to the camera and was looking at it... very cool. Needless to say, the Vex was pretty empty at that point But when the muskie disappeared, the crappies came back.
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
