Report is from 6-10-17...got to share some boat time with a great angler...Greg has given me hand tied jig's that work well for panfish pegged below a small float...need to get some more of those..!! kinda like a fuzzy grub just smaller for crappie and bluegill...we ended with 55-60 on the clicker with a nice mixed bag by day's end...water was 71º and still stained for this time of year...

Report is from 6-9-17...ran the mixed bag pattern again this morning...hunted for crappie to finish the trip...crappie are very active once you find them...size is still down from the spring...not sure if the up-down temp's are to blame...or the year is the sign of smaller average fish...maybe in a week or so things will settle to some normalcy ...had a young gun on the boat and he had a blast with the cats...

Report is from 6-7-17....this was the first evening trip this season...focus was on crappie and we tried several areas and caught fish at most places we looked...had to try new areas to get away from the eastern wind...tried a few deeper spots and boated some nice size crappie...numbers are still good ..

Report is from 6-6-17...mainly crappie ...had a great artificial bite on plastics today...side by side with the slipbobber and minnow the plastic was out fishing the live bait....the wind was howling but we found the crappie very active...water was a little muddy compared to yesterday...and only 67º..managed 85 on the clicker but I'm sure they boated closer to 95...action was fast and I had trouble keeping track at times...good problem to have...size is still small for this time of year....with the up-down of the water temperature I'm sure the fish are still stuck trying to get settled..
