Good to see you folks posting. I still consider myself a new to the area and kind of a rookie, so this site has been a real help to me. Thanks to Chris and Lincoln at T-bone, and Derek at Jim’s bait shop for a good pointers as well. All real nice Fellas and know their stuff
Starting to catch Crappie on Pistakee Bay. No big slabs, but a consistent occasional 9-10” fish on Minnows and 1/4oz orange and pink seem best. Fish loosely gathered in 14 to 18FOW.

Out yesterday on Marie from 8-2pm. Tried 17 - 4 feet. Caught 2 perch, on jig and crawler, a few white bass deeper on jigging rap and a catfish. A little breezy but nice day. No pattern to establish, tried mud flats, points and weeds. Not a great day fishing but a good day with youngest son who hasn't started school yet. I'll wait for water to cool and go for musky later in the year. T-Bone, 65 musky in 2 weeks is crazy #$%&. Hope to see you in the fall for an outing.
