    Thanks, CP ! The fish are increasing in general size...maybe due to "no size limit" effort to get the stunted numbers down?
    But then again, I don't really see a whole lot of folks exclusively targeting crappie. We hit it during the spawn and size was up very well.
    But this time of year, it's the night shift for my fishing. I ain't so much chasing them as they are hunting for me and my little buddies gathered
    up in a big swimming wad around my boat. I did have to do a little hunting for the right spots/conditions but it seems those productive spots
    continue to produce night after night.

    I know there are boats coming by us that think "What the heck are they doing sitting out here? They won't catch nothing like that". It was hard
    for me to break that mindset of crappie always close to cover. After experimenting a night or two, I discovered a good pattern and it works anywhere I can
    duplicate it on that lake. All I had to do was add a pair of electric anchors and a good measure of anchor line. Hint hint

    Yeah, I get the "hint hint" .... I've trolled Road Runners out in the middle of the lake & caught Crappie (years ago) in the middle of the day. We saw little "dimples" on the surface and thought it might be Bluegill picking bugs off the water, and we weren't having any luck close to shore line moss or timber, so we decided to drag our RR's around out in the middle of the lake and see if we could catch some of them. To our surprise ... we caught Crappie. Unfortunately, at that time, the size limit was still in effect & none of the Crappie were keepers.

    Have you ever caught any Blacknose Black Crappie from Cedar Creek Lake ?? I ask because my buddy & I have both caught Blacknose out of there, but again it was back when the size limit was still in effect. I haven't fished Cedar Creek in quite a few years & was just wondering if they were still present in any numbers.

    I have not caught any Blacknose yet. I am the lucky one that gets to clean all the fish my brothers and I catch on these night excursions so I'd notice.
    Now that you've mentioned them, watch me catch a few. I'll post images should that happen.

    Don't mind at all, Rhino but it is a light I made several years ago from a 4 foot length of 1 1/2" clear PVC and a run of cheap 5050 green LEDs (strip) wrapped around a smaller diameter PVC secured inside the clear outer PVC. I filled a 6" section of PVC attached to the bottom with sand to stand it upright in the water (for weight) and a McMaster Carr sealing cable grip on the top end. Used an old printer cable (probably 20 feet long) I had laying around for the power attached to a couple alligator clips for the battery. Only things I had to order and didn't have on hand were the LED strip and cable grip.

    Like I mentioned, it's several years old and has been dunked many times, sometimes fairly deep to see how it affected the swarm, and every time I pull it up to store it, it's dry as a bone inside. So I'm guessing I did something right. Now that I've said that, it'll go south on me next time I use it. You probably don't need a 4 footer...mine is extremely bright but it doesn't seem to deter the baitfish as I've seen the water frothing with rather good size minnows right next to the light when a school of crappie or bass starts chasing em to the top.

    Oh yeah...I also have 2 16' LED green strips running the length of both sides of my XPress 18' that I always have on when I'm night stalking.


    Edit: Frothing is a word, ain't it? :-)
