Some guys on lake link just here to be negative cuz they cant catch fish. I get ripped often for honest reports. I caught 17 nice crappie last week on Ripley on a jigging spoon, also a ton of 8-9 inch gills. It is a great lake.
Back when I first started fishing I didn't believe old timers and bass abductors catches, I fished with them both and was amazed to see how many fish they caught, never doubt a report, best bet is be nice and private message for advice.
