What color over there did you find worked the best? Didn't happen to pick up any walleye did you? I go over there quite a bit, the size of the crappie is nice compared to Wappapello. Also will pick up a muskie every now and then if you pull cranks over there enough. I got a 49" two weeks ago on a chart. hot n tot., couldn't believe I got him in the net with 12lb test and a 8lb flouro. leader!

I have tried pulling crawler harnesses and all kinds of different cranks looking for walleye with limited success. My best is 6lbs, but they are definitely hard to find in big numbers
