    Default Crappie day with clearing rain today

    So I took off about 11am this morning while checking the radar of rain and noticed it was going to stop. So I called a fishing buddy that I knew had off and he was on his way and we were headed to the river for some perch fishing. So we get there and the water was up and turning colors but not quite chocolate but a close pea looking soupy color of water.
    We launch the canoe and I dropped anchor, transducer over side of canoe and using my UL 4# test ice fishing pole and start jigging. Finally hook up with a nice crappie, released and continued, then dropped it back down and bam-o another nice crappie, this time a photo op.

    and then another. Fish On!

    And still another, this was awesome.

    Then we moved to another spot and another spot, moved around and anchored in several places to fish, just like if we were on the ice. Jipping was hard to pick up all the time with the flasher due to the swinging of the canoe with the anchor and wind. Much harder for my buddy in the front of the canoe, next time 2 anchors might work best.
    Then I hooked into a monster crappie.



    See the little 26" UL ice fishing rod was working awesome.
    Then I was picking up a ton of crappie handing out at 12'-15' over 18'-20' FOW and counted off how far I was fishing so my buddy could get into the strike zone and then came back to back.


    Need I saw more, what a crappie day.
    All fish were C&R'd too.

    Nice fish. Looks like fun. They sure are yellowish looking.
    Good things come to those who bait.

    I like the use of ice fishing rods even though there is no ice.

    Sometimes you just have to say the heck with it and go, knowing wet and cold awaits you. But when you catch fish, one has a tendency to forget the weather. Good looking fish.

    Thanks, I love my little ice fishing poles, easier to keep the line under the canoe so I could read my jigs on the flasher.

    And the weather broke as soon as we put the canoe on the water, it stopped raining and the sun came out right before we pulled out. It was a well planned and exicuted plan that just seemed to work and click.
