    Default The ever elusive Royal Flush

    Many times we hit the water and have things in mind before we go . Yesterday afternoon was one of those days . We thought we would probably ketch a few crappie and thought we may or may not keep a few . So our adventure begins with my buds Helix down yet again after he got it working since our last boat ride . We think its done this time for good and he is not really happy about it going down again .
    The good news is we are familiar with the lake and we are going to timber doodle and hit trees and our strategy will be run and gun . Stop drop , ketch and roll is our plan and on this water body at this time of year its the way to put crappie in the boat . The fish there are rarely in great numbers per tree and the best bet is to ketch until you don't for a few and move on .
    Well we stop at our first tree and as my bud SK would say BAM ...nice crappie Ö.
    Then the card game begins , next drop KABOOM and the 10 foot rod I don't use often bends over like spaghetti and the braid reel squeaks and I tell my bud this here AINT no crappie
    Well after a pretty good struggle up comes a jim dandy drum
    My bud is laughing and says you on the way to your tri fecta my friend , so we yuck it up some and display my dandy drum and his dandy crappie he got right when I hooked up to our buds a few trees away .We move on and hit lots more timber and ketch lots more white crappie and then I finally ketch a black crappie ! Then later I ketch a black bass and my bud is poking at me and says well you just need a yellow bass to complete your mission !
    I said oh no no no bud I got to get a bluegill as well to call it done and we about roll around laughing in the boat I tell ya
    Next stop a bluegill comes up and we are just cracking up I tell ya , then it gets even better as the next stop up comes a yellow bass ! Well the tri fecta mission is more than complete except to get the ever elusive Royal Flush I need at least one catfish !
    I manage a nice little mohawk at the next stop and we hit a tree loaded with white crappie and one lone tree when we left for a real nice black crappie but in the end as it often happens I cant seem to play that last card and never ketch a kitty kat fish
    I did decide to ice down exactly 8 of my fish ...in the 12 to 13 inch long fish size along the way for a couple of dinners for my family and we let the rest swim on and....
    in the end Ö.The ever elusive Royal Flush of ketchn eluded me once AGAIN ...

    Great way to spend a day!
    80% of fish are in the 20% of water that I donít fish.

    Never heard it referred to as a Royal Flush. When pulling cranks I have caught and kept up to 4 species, but never more than 4 on a single poled jig. Good catch sir! Here Kitty Kitty!
