    Default Fair weather fishermen

    I am , but to be sure I don't let that dictate if I am going or not as you might have noticed . Yesterday was simply beautiful weather wise and it was really pretty nice at 3 am when I woke up and couldn't get back to sleep . A bit windy ,but not terribly cool and so it began .
    I double layered top and bottom to be safe from the lite chill still lingering from the recent arctic blast , as I knew I was going to be out in the elements a few hours . I poured some coffee in a carry along and went to put on my boots . the coffee was behind me in the chair and some how turned over at 1 boot thirty ...
    I jumped up when it fired up on my behind and managed to set off my truck alarm somehow in the fiasco
    nice start for sure .....
    Well I got to lake about 3:45 ish and went out on a dark dock ramp and pitched my jig . I know the patterns fairly well of these particular crappie and know they feed up in this creek at night in the winter on the shad that come to the rip rap to stay warm in the cold . As I have found in the past there they were thumping hard and getting frisky with my jig.
    So there I stood for most of the dark time and whacked em right well , I also managed 2 small large mouths along in the mess of white crappie that hang around in there in the dark . Nothing really large and not to many keepers I don't think ,but I think I had maybe around 10 keepers out of 35 or so fish .
    Same thing as the norm right now in that they were still about 10 to 12 deep in about 14 foot or slightly less water depth . I will be float ketchn these fish soon and probably could have found some in shorter water if I wanted to float fish them that visit .
    Same bait color I have been using and same jighead and YES I was saucing up the jig a bit as well . Let them all swim on to go about what they were doing before I got there and left at the beginning of first light as that's when they leave as well .
    Hope you enjoy the photos and read
    p.s. deer were out feeding hard on the drive out there and I typically find that when they are feeding along the roadside in numbers I am ketchn fish in the same fashion

    Sure beats watching infomercials or B movies when you cant sleep. Good story. I would have gone back home for sausage, eggs, gravy and then a nap after all that hard work.
    If you were on trial for being a Christian would there be enough evidence to convict you??

    Been known to do things like that myself. Local restaurants knew me when it was coffee time after chasing fish. Good post, thanks for taking us along.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.
