Anyone catching any crappies yet? my 6 year old really wants me to take her but I of course want to make sure they are in a good bite before I take her. Gotta make sure it is a fun and successful fishing trip when they are this young. Got to get em hooked on fishing.
Dan, The crappies and sunnies are biting! These fish were caught here in east central MN. I don't want to name the very popular lake for obvious reasons. But we caught these in the shallows on crappie minnows on a plain hook. 2-6 fow. The 2 of us had the best time in quite a while. Went through a full scoop of minnows, through back 15+ sunnies, 30+ crappies, kept 16 crappies, 14 were 12+", the biggin was 13.5", 2 smallish that were hooked deep, fished wify hours between 9am-1pm, we were very fortunate! Good luck, I'm sure he will have a great time as long as he is out with Dad! Most lakes in the area are giving them up pretty good I here.
Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~ Chuck Clark
