Have not been fishing for 28 years. Raising 5 children 17 grandchildren etc.

Found this site via a Crappie Mag. and search engine.
Believe it or not only caught 1 crappie when I was about 17.

Been reading, books, forums, goggles searches. Got to gear up from scratch. Right now found a nice lake Beebe Lake in Auburn In.

It has a real nice dock, talked to a couple fishermen last fall and they claim the crappie are in abundance.

Looking forwarded to this spring then this had to happen

Welcome aboard. We're glad you found us. Make sure you keep all that white stuff up your way. We don't need any down here in MS. :)

Bob, I'm a late bloomer to crappie fishing too. Next to duck hunting, crappie fishing is high on my list of have-to's. Good fishing to you.

Welcome back to fishing and welcome aboard crappie.com. I'm in Upstate NY, and I feel your pain about the weather. It started snowing this morning and is supposed to go through tomorrow afternoon, then Lake Ontario will fire up here snow maker and dump a little more on us.

Welcome to the site Bob. You have found the right place to get ready to get em. Have fun and ask lots of questions. Learn to use the search option when you are curious about a topic. There are very few issues we haven't covered to the Nth degree. This site should be subtitled Crappie University.
