well baller and i took off yesterday for toronto. it was only 7 feet high but it's only got to be 6 or more for the fishing to be hot, oh and the weather! we put the knife to 71 kansas crappie. fishing was great, lot's of quality fish but no 4 lbr's or anything. 3/8 orange jighead with a #6 hook, missed a lot of hit's til we switched to a smaller hook. lot of tic tic tug's and lot's of thump's as well. orange and chartreuse 2 1/2 tube jig loaded with crappie nibble's from the bait pump. caught them in 7 ft up to 20 ft of water. 6 feet down was the ticket with a lot of shaking the rod, they wanted it bouncing. only caught maybe 6 out toward's the mouth of mann's cove. once we got about halfway back they were whacking it all the way back to the back of mann's cove. only took one pic this was one of the better one's;) hope everyone is having a good fishing weekend and staying cool. it's great to be in the a/c!... oh and we never saw another fishermen the entire time. would of stayed til tomorrow but baller had political dutie's this evening:mad: i hate leaving hungry fish!

Little differant than the size of the last picture you took with a fish from there. Glad you had a good trip. Good to see that big smile again even if it was with a little fish this time. No picture of Ed up a tree this time?

thank's all, we caught about 20 that size that of course we let swim for another day. that's a good sign... like to see that even though those fish will prolly die of old age in the future. hey jared the fishing was too good to be funning around in the tree's. i could barely get ed to stop and eat a sandwich! i as well had to remember to keep snacking, dang diabete's, but i finally got my sugar under control just took awhile to figure out my diet, no problem.
