SLABSAUCE Crappie Attractant |
  • The Return

    It's been many moons since I visited a local lake that is right smack dab in the middle of the metroplex area . A really nice guy that I have known via the internet crappie forums for a very long time has invited me to hit the water with him many times in the last 6 or 7 years . It's what would be considered by him as his home lake and he told me he was going Saturday morning and we could go try to ketch a few if I was so inclined .
    Now mind you he is not just an average crappie angler and has won a few tournaments and is known fairly well in the crappie world . So I hopped in his rig this morning and we livescoped a few fish and had a pretty darn good time .
    The front was pushing thru and it was a bit chilly early . The fish were less cooperative than what we had hoped for until you guessed it was about time to go !
    So we maybe managed around a dozen or so keepers in the first 2 hours and lots of little squeakers . Then we found some larger fish in a concentration and put some nice fish to the net right quickly . The last 45 minutes or so we stretched our lines well and slung some nice fish . Not sure if it was the late morning thing or what but to be sure we slung a fair number of good fish right quickly the last spot we hit .
    We had decided up front to release them and even though he needs 100 fillets for the crappie expo , he said his freezer was bit full at this moment in time so we let them all swim on . Some of the fish were pretty cool to watch when released . I tossed a pretty solid fish out about 15 foot from the boat and when it hit the water it hit it running and RACED right back to the pack on the laydown we were fishing .
    One larger specimen I dropped nose first beside the boat , went straight down like a ROCK into a thick brushy spot right under the pack of fish .
    Was really nice out there and the company was great .
    Nice to finally meet you in person sir and thanks bunches for the boat ride
    KABOOM is the word
    p.s. the brace in the first photo was an I netted his fish with my left hand and got thumped hard at the moment it hit the net while my rod was in my right hand ....just gotta love that don't ya know

      Great day for sure outlaw, especially when you get to fish with another celebrity.
