    Unfortunately I did. I did not want to put it in salt water and fresh water slips are hard to find here. I finally found a slip and was to get the boat on November 1st, but the previous person leasing the slip did not move his boat until November 15th. So I didn't get the pontoon into the slip until the 17th. I didn't get power to the boat until yesterday to recharge all the batteries. Then I discovered somebody had stolen my Ultra 126 display unit from my truck.

    So I haven't had a chance to fish the lake from my pontoon yet.

    They may be hard to ketch but I will ketch them. And even if I don't ketch them, I will have a lot of fun trying to catch them.

    I have the underwater camera now. I haven't used it yet but I will once I start fishing.

    And Ketchn, you are going to have to wait until after December 11th or so to get your fishing report. I'm flying to Chicago tomorrow for a couple of weeks to spend the Thanksgiving holidays with my sons and their families.

    But here is a link to an underwater video of crappie in Lake Washington you can watch while you wait. I now need to find where he filmed the video but he will not tell anybody other than it is on Lake Washington.

    Thanks for sharing the video. I enjoyed that underwater footage. Hopefully you can find someone to help get you started. Focus on finding structure since he states that’s the one thing in common with them all. Please keep us updated as I’m curious how it goes.

    I intend to post here regularly with pictures and underwater videos. I have bought a lake map and have been poring over it and online maps, trying to find indications of underwater structure. I have several areas to check out when I get back from Chicago.

    With that many crappie in that one area I'm sure this will be a great crappie lake once I find the structure. The state seems to think so, there are no limits on crappie on the lake. You can keep any size you want to keep and you can keep as many as you want to keep. But I have no need for that many crappie to eat. So I will follow my normal practice of keeping 2-4 crappie, once or twice a week.

    Another tool you could try before on the lake is the google earth pro desktop version. It lets you view historical map pictures and you might find a time before the lake was built or a year it was drained low and find structure that way.



    We have no limits here in NC either and I hardly keep any at all if we have some in freezer already.

    The seven months I fished Lake Worth taught me to downsize my expectations. I have never been skunked as many times before in my life as I was skunked at Lake Worth.

    Now I will admit that when you found them biting at Lake Worth you could catch 30 or 40 and several of them would be the big boys. But I had more skunked days than catching days at Lake Worth.

    But since I don't keep much of what I catch, I'm a numbers guy, not a trophy hunter. And with the numbers I saw in that video and another video, I think I will catch a lot of them once I find them.

    Sure looks like they hold on extra deep cover and noticed big sunfish mixed in the herds with them , maybe a tandem 1/32 number 8 jig and a heavy split shot above them ...
    30 feet and deeper is a long ways down , likely gunna kill lots of fish
