Been fishing the last two days. The Crappie are biting. The weather here has been great this week 40's at night 60's during the day.I've caught 9 Crappie so far,caught nothing in the mornings, all caught around 6P.M.. Can't believe I can't catch anything using live bait, everything was caught on a chartruese curly tail jig.

I miss the days of catching Crappie on jigs within the city limits of any town USA.

I do recall my first encounter with Crappies and quickly learned to not set the hook so hard. In some cases, not all, I would retrieve a pair of lips that would make me laugh each time.

I enjoy catching scrappy Black Crappie as long as my hand and they sure fry up nicely in a thick beer batter at the end of the day accompanied by an ice cold IPA.
