Have caught some fish before in Pickwick, but never amounted to enough to call a mess until now. Gonna fry them up Sunday with the friend who helped catch them. Only 7 crappie and 1 bass, but with a few shrimp should be just fine. Largest crappie was 13 inches. Lost 2 nice ones and a larger bass at the boat. Caught on blk/char road runners. I think they are finally coming up shallow.Water was 64 degrees surface temp. However the water temp will drop again, with another cold front tomorrow. Really happy to at least get the skunk's attention. Been a long year trying around here. Way different than where I fished in Louisiana.

Good job, Danny! What's the normal water level for Pickwick this time of year? The Big 4 are all high and muddy, thinking about making a trip over there, but not familiar with the "normal" water level.

How deep were the shrimp? :scratchhead hahaha about 2 ft in the freezer at Walmart. Honestly, try the large easy peel shrimp from Walmart. 24 ounces for about $10. I come from a family of shrimpers. We have owned 3 different boats and have even sold some years ago. So I know shrimp well and the easy peels are a good deal and taste great.

You better bring your A game if you want to keep up with the Michigan hooligans. Can't wait to see you and OE in that roll down the hill contest.

You’re sure not having any problems with preparing the catch! My tongue just slapped my face a few times looking at that spread!
