    Default You never have enough fishing friends

    Especially Crappie friends!

    A while ago I posted a question in the Florida forum asking for information on a place I could go while attending my nieces wedding. A new member to crappie.com responded to my inquiry and in fact invited me to fish with him on the lake his house is on. This new members screen name is Conrod.

    So after some PMs and emails it worked out that today would be the day....now bear in mind my wife is not as trusting as I am when it comes to meeting up with someone from the Internet, I assured her she had nothing to worry about.

    I made the 40 minute or so drive up to Conrodís Home and we were soon on the water.....I could hardly wait, 2 years ago I had never caught a crappie despite fishing since I was a child and have been having pretty good success in my home state of Michigan, I thought how cool if I could catch a crappie in another state!

    Conrod was the first to land a crappie..... nice, we at least will not get skunked!

    A little while later, I had my first Florida crappie!

    Time passed and a few more were brought in the boat, Conrod did much better than I, which is as it should be he had Home lake advantage! He said I usually start with 3 rods, catching so many I drop down to 2 then eventually just 1......soon Iím throwing them back! Well Iím not sure if thatís true or just a tremendous fish tale!

    Water was 70 degrees, water depth average was about 20 feet, I never thought Iíd need a hoodie in Florida but Iím glad my wife convinced me to bring one along.

    I feel fortunate that a c.c member reached out to help me find a place to fish while visiting Florida, I feel more fortunate to have made another fishing buddy, we will plan on doing it again!

    Man!! Great having you! We will have to do it again for sure! I think you brought the cold weather from Michigan with you. But that's ok because they will be MORE active tomorrow looking for prespawn food supply

    You can never have enough fishing buddies, I need a few more myself.
    Couldn't get anyone to go, bunch of wimps, just because it was 35 degrees

    A very good Job Conrod!! We are 50,000 strong nationwide and there's no reason for someone to go without with this family we belong to. THAT is what it's all about. Glad you had a good time and got your first Florida Crappie. I bet you'll be back for more. Great post.

    I been conversing with Steve a while. Long enough that even though we have not met in person, I just know that he is stand up. I will meet and fish with him some day. In the spirit of C.c Conrod came through. That is what C.c is all about. Way to go guys!!! Great offer Conrod and you are a stand up guy as well.
