SLABSAUCE Crappie Attractant |
  • Merry Christmas to all and now let the tailgate party begin

    Wait a minute tailgating parties are for football ...what was I thinking .
    I got all excited about a special birthday I suppose ..
    Merry Christmas to the forum I say
    don't forget the reason for the season ..
    Now on with a crappie ketchn story I think . I hit the old public dock early this Christmas Eve , got there about 330 am I did ..pulled out about 6 am I did .home with fresh baked goods from the bakery that opens at 6 am before first light .with a light load of fish to boot !
    Sure was a lovely way to start my day , a bit early but the only crowd to deal with was the herd of crappie under said dock .They was a thumpin like freight trains when I got there and still thumpin when I left as the crowds came rolling in . I let all the just legal fish go and even gave a decent 11 incher a hall pass when he flipped out of the checker and hit the dock ..told him merry Christmas and gave him a slide to the edge with my foot
    I really wasn't there to take many and could have quite easily taken my limit of 25 , but hey the bucket seemed a bit heavy and I knew we didn't need more than I had . I thought I had about 15 and when I counted em later had 14 fish from 10.5 to 12 inches .
    About a third of the fish came off a bobby garland blue and pearl a bud gave me last trip and the other 2 thirds off a custom MCM tackle plastic he poured me .
    heck I even pulled up 3 handties and 3 plastics in a ball at one point and gave the guy that showed up the one he said was his he lost yesterday
    quite frosty morning it was and I filleted em still kickin after breakfast .
    I targeted the deeper end of the dock and there were a lot more overs than unders in the deep water . Still dead still about 2 inches off the bottom and wait for it .
    I noticed some roe and thought you might want to see it as well .
    Merry Christmas to everyone and have blessed evening and day tomorrow
    and for sure ...KABOOM
    p.s. I did a selfie with my new Christmas bonnet when I got home just for grins as well .
    one last thing I forgot to add ...I made cookies for santa before lunch
