SLABSAUCE Crappie Attractant |
  • Soaked but found success on Pomme de Terre this afternoon

    Made it up to Pittsburg Landing this afternoon about 12:45. After sitting Atop The Boat ramp for a few minutes debating with myself on just how bad I wanted to catch fish or get soaked, my addiction won, and I backed the boat in. The rain was not terrible, it was off and on, varying in intensity most of the afternoon. Wind was calm, and water was a stained brown color 40 surface temp. I hit the first brush pile that I came across, and found fish suspended in 16 FOW, about 9 1/2 foot deep. I was using a 2.5 inch Crappie Kicker, Buster Brown color as well as chartreuse w/silver flake, by Fle-Fly fishing tackle. I used both a weedless 3/32oz jig head and a 1/16 oz big eye jig head in the presentation. The fish seem to prefer the lighter jighead today over the heavier one. The Buster Brown color seemed to be a little hotter today than the chartreuse w/silver flake, however both caught fish. I managed to pull 10 decent keeper crappie(10"-11"), and one respectable White bass off of that first pile, as well as whole bunch of short fish also. I spent three hours hovering over that brush pile before I gave up and moved on. Finally the water was starting to soak through my jacket and I decided to throw the towel in.
    I didn't happen to get any photographs while I was out on the water due to all the rain and such, but here's a few pics of the fish in my patent pending "clean'em later well", and the tackle I used.
    Hope the info is helpful.

    Fish On!

      Good job out there. I just can't do the "rain" dance anymore. Arthritis + being old!
