well, ended up catching 33 crappie. Threw back at least 15. The largest around 14". Having a fish fry for the family tommorow night,, my folk drove up from Panama City, so we are going to eat gooooooood. Nothing in the world like fresh crappie. Letting them soak overnight in the fridge, gonna fry up nice.

Today they were hard to find. I worked really hard to find these fish. Caught two in 5 minutes, then the others were here and there. I found one brush pile that I caught 6 out of, but other than that, they were scattered. I tried everything from standing timbre in 25 feet of wtaer, to tight lining, to cork and minnow in 6 feet. They were in all these places, yet not in large numbers. My best results came from tight lining in 18-28' of water. Fishing only 14' deep though. Fished both jigs tipped with monnows and just minnows. Caught them both ways, neither was better really. Patience was the key today. Beautiful day to fish. Ended up being around 60 degrees. The run this morning was a little chili though.

I have several pics I want to post, but having some difficulty with it. I have images saved on my computer, so how do I get them on my posts?

Great day David. I got to go about 4:30 till dark. Caught 11 keepers and a few of the smallest I have seen in a while. Seems they should be bigger. They must have been born during a freak fall spawn or something. Was a good day for us. I didn't get to drop my condos. they were not ready. I made the mix a little to soupy. They will dry by sunday when I'm going again.

The easiest way for me to keep and post photos is with:Photobucket (www.photobucket.com)
Just follow the instructions on the site. When you want to post them on a thread just copy the url from the pic on photobucket click on the little yellow square above^ has 2 mountains and looks like a stamp. Paste the url from photobucket and click ok
If ya have any trouble just ask. Several people here use photobucket.

my buddy went again today. He caught them in the same places we caught these, only didn't tighline, but trolled with a little more speed. Caught 41 in about 3-4 hours. Had one real nice one about 15.5" long.
