    Default At least not skunked, 11-1

    I took a chance and made a trip today before the rain showed up. Launched at 11 and pulled off in the rain at 1 pm. Air temperature was 41, water temp was 49. Rain wasn't supposed to come in until mid afternoon so that shortened my trip by quite a bit. Wind wasn't bad to start but soon picked up ahead of the front coming through. Too strong to stay on the few schools I found as usual.
    I ended up with 4 crappie, 2 about 8" and 2 about 11" or so. All came on the white tailed stinger, trolled VERY slowly down deep on an 1/8oz. head.

    If this turns out to be my last trip of the season, at least I can go through the winter knowing I didn't end it with a skunk in the boat. I still have hopes of getting in another trip or 2 but I'm now limited to weekends only, unless I decide to play hooky from work.
    Bluegill still fear me...but the crappie are not laughing quite as loudly as they used to.

    Ya gotta do what you have to do before you can do what you wanna do.

    Not bad for middle of the day fishing.

    Great effort! Weather turned brutal yesterday for sure. Hopefully the weather will take a turn for the better soon.

    Great again for a short trip. Keep the hopes up, maybe the weather will break for a few days before the end of the season.
