Pretty rough since I got here yesterday, I'm wanting to get on the water, but not THAT bad!

I promise it's worse than the pics make it appear.

Someone make it stop! :popcorn

sounds and looks like someone being a "wimp/wuss" to me. :Rofl You're in a yak that weighs less than 75lbs, the darn thing will just bounce right off those 10 million stumps and not even leave a mark on a single stump. :biggrin

Hope the weather does calm down for you,but I bet you still hit one or more stumps. :Rofl

C'mon over today, I'll hit the water if you will http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-taunt002.gif (http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys.php)

Ain't the stumps that concern me, it's the wind/waves. I'm parked next to one of the Bath Houses, and thought I'd do a bit of laundry yesterday. When I stepped-out last evening to check on it, there was zero wind blowing, I thought I must have fallen asleep and was having a dream. Supposedly, things are supposed to calm down after today. Met a guy here yesterday who was staring at the water as much as I have been the past couple days. We got a chuckle about being so close, yet so far. We swapped a couple jigs we each tied, so hopefully it won't be long :ThumbsUp

NeonMoon don't catch all the crappie. Me and a friend will be down on Monday to catch some. Hope the wind has died down by then.

it's "breezy" here today, so you'll probably have some of it tomorrow (hate to be the bearer of potentially bad news). I'm seldom wrong on the weather, everything else yes, but not the weather. JK. :biggrin Hope the weather settles down for you.

Well, got on the water this AM

And within a few hours........

I scored a big fat zilch, not a single bite. Most everyone I'd heard caught less than 10. If any you guys see a tan Kayak on the water, holler at me, or around the grey bus in the campground.

Hopefully I'll do better tomorrow. Fish or no fish, was nice to be on the water while it was calm. I saw about 10 boats on the water this AM, but most were gone in a few hours.

winds started to lay down here, but still they've got the shut mouth.

Perfect weather today, 2nd day for me without a single bite. They were catching a few today, I just lack proper gear, so I picked-up a cheap 14' crappie rod, a couple packs of jigs, and a jar of Crappie Nibbles, and plan to hit the water early in the AM. Got out today about time they shut-off (10:30). Casting with spinning gear and working jigs back just don't cut it here, you gotta be on the stumps, and 6' spinning rods just don't work for that.

ETA: Water temp 56* when I got off the water about 2:00PM.
