Title: crappie monday
Post by: lepomis_mcro on March 12, 2007, 21:18:36 PM
went out on lake lookout this evening.. got to the water at 6pm temp was 49-51 degrees.
hooked into a nice guy with a white clousers mad tom. around 8-10 feet or so



after i released him. i parked over the spot, and had a nice time. tossing the fly. letting it sink and doing a slow retrieve

heard a few top water strikes.. so i couldnt resist throwing a small popper along the bank... first gill of the year


finished up around 7:30
