SLABSAUCE Crappie Attractant |
  • Trashed

    I haven't been going to the creek much this year as I just never could find crappie in there . They should have been there long ago ,but I never found any . Well a bud said someone told him they were in there so I got a little excited and went down there to see for myself .
    Sure enough the signs were there , the place is trashed up to beat the band with piles of beer cans and minnow bags and chip bags and empty tackle bags and the list goes on . Floats stuck in every tree and its obvious Christmas in on its way with all the adornments .
    Mind you I hear the fish been in there a few , but I been busy hitting other spots and not really trying there much . One bud told me there were so many trucks parked along the road over the thanksgiving holiday it was unreal .
    So to be sure Monday after its over and quiets down some the fish are for sure beat up and scared and that's about what I found .
    I didn't photo the trash as it really got under my skin and I had no way to pick it up and carry it out or I would have for sure .
    The same schmucks that do this kind of thing are the ones that will cry the loudest when they put up a heavy fence and don't let folks go in there anymore .
    Anyway I did find a few smaller black crappie and a few other small fish , but as disheartening as it was to visit I am not sure if I will be down there on a regular basis this year .
    If you read this and you are one of those people that did the deed you ought to go back with a bucket and pick that stuff up
    I might even go back just to pick up trash like I did a couple years ago ….man humans are bad wildlife
    fish were tight to brush and in real shallow water , I had my float set about 18 inches and if it wasn't close to brush within a foot or so it was wasting time .
    pearl seemed to be best and the water was so clarity wise .
    sorry for the rant and have a great day

      Some good ones. Nothing beats fishing from the shore watching a bobber go under. Sad about the trash people but we have them up here in New York State also.

      Those are some nice crappie. Sad about the trash, but it's becoming more and more prevalent these days.

      Good job. I hate seeing litter and trash. Just ruins the view of nature and the way it should be.

      when I was a young person we had a school art contest to make a poster about our environment and I did a beautiful scenery view of a creek and a hillside with a woodlot in the back ground and a pile of trash dumped in the creek with a caption about pollution .
      I won the 1 week trip to go camping trip with that poster and that was 50 years ago , so you see it isn't new to me but to this day it still totally upsets me to see it .

      That's a shame, but you did catch some nicely-colored fish.
