    Default A Few From Today

    Full moon in late April, went in search for bedding Gills even though I knew our water temperatures were still low-62-65. Gills like it a bit warmer to actually bed here, but they still have to eat right. Well everyone else was hungry today as well, and early on it was everything but....Name:  1E838D66-3785-48DA-89EE-B0D9B650A31F.jpg

    Bait of choice today was the Berkeley Gulp 1in Minnow on a 1g jig head. Tiny minnows and fry were skipping everywhere up shallow, so match the hatch I did and it paid off nicely.

    These guys were definitely searching out some bedding areas, found them in front of a gravel driveway that will be underwater soon. Caught 12, released all but 5 as the wife requested Fish Tacos. You can check out their obvious fate on the Cooking Crappie board. Size was awesome and the fight was even better. Name:  A86121DD-3604-4872-B2C3-8DB6205C78AC.jpg

    Nice gills. Even here in middle Georgia on the water I’m fishing it seems the fish are just a little bit behind the full moon. May should be on fire.

    Those gills are chunks, reminds me of those coppernose out in California. Nothing wrong with saving a few for tacos. Gills make the best fish tacos.

    Water is about 58 here in middle TN, so we are a little behind you. They are starting to move in though. Been catching a few nice shellcrackers so far. Next several weeks should be great.

    Like your water, ours is 62-65 degrees here too. I wanna get out and look for beds on my Helix 9 with SI. Hadnt had it but for a few months so I'm a little excited. Nice gills. Congrats.
    Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.
