    Default went to Lathem for a few hours today..

    Launched the kayak around 10AM and fished until 2PM. Lots of trailers in the lot; I realized there was a bass tournament after the 3rd rude boat fished too close or passed too close. Bums. Anyway, I had not gone 100 yards from the launch when I had trolling motor issues. I decided to fish close to the lot, because I hate paddling. I took a look with my PLS:

    After seeing this, I wasn't going anywhere. I caught around 25, not a one under 10", most over 12", and a few pushing 2 lbs 15-16 inches. I kept a few for my supper. I used an UL spinning rod and sat about 30 feet away, anchored, casting a 1.5 g jig with a greenie weenie or bison color trout magnet. I also had a spare rod with Bobby Garland blue ice baby shad. I would let the jig sink to 15 feet and slowly reel it thru the school .. fish on. I had to move the kayak several times to stay on them, because the crappie were not on any structure and were moving around on the flat.

    Had a good time wrasslin' in the slabs on my UL rod, while drinking coffee and smoking a cigar. My kind of morning!
