  1. Took a family trip down to Mississippi to get on some big crappie.  Something I’ve been wanting to do for years.  Why have I waited so long?  It was incredible!  We arrived Friday late afternoon for check in and got settled in our cabin.  Went down to the outdoor pavilion called “The Slab Shack” for dinner.  1 inch thick strip steaks, sea salt crusted baked potatoes, coleslaw, grilled asparagus, garlic bread, key lime pie, and home maid pineapple ice cream.

    Woke up early next morning for sausage biscuit sandwiches and headed for the water.  Spider rigged till about noon for some monster slabs picking up 28 keepers over 13 inches.  Had sandwiches on the boat and pizza waiting for us back at the slab shack.  Put all the fish on ice for pictures the next day.  Dinner the second night was hand cut pork chops, salad, baked beans, coleslaw, corn and onions, blackberry cobbler and homemade blackberry ice cream.  

    Up early again for breakfast down at the Slab Shack of fried ham steaks and biscuits, then on the water by the crack of daylight.  Caught my largest crappie ever of 16 3/4 inches and 31 more in the 14-16 inch range.  Back to the Slab Shack by new to grill burgers and chips for lunch.  Big photo shoot of both boats of family and fish for two days of fishing.  We ended up boating 122 keepers.  After pictures, the guides went to cleaning fish.  They got that dialed in.

    Final dinner was smoke ribs, coleslaw, baked beans, bread, pasta salad, cobbler and ice cream.

    I will be going again!

  2. There might have been a few caught this morning.  Might be a few to be caught.  Tested a few new things out. Some passed the initial evaluations, some didn’t pan out.  Company was incredible.  I can tell you, my wife and I are having ribs tonight. The BBQ sauce will be savored!  There is also a new addition to the mantle, a place where truely treasured items are displayed .

  3. Gates did open about noon today. No units running and 2 gates open 2 feet.  Ryan and I boated up for the one cast just as they were opening. Fish floating everywhere.  Bass, gizzard shad, crappie, drum, threadfin shad, and a couple spooners.  We caught a few on white and the water was real dingy.  Had a 2 hr trip from 4-6 pm this evening.  Went back up to dam and caught a bunch on white 1/16 jigs from cable to outlet 3.  Bite slowed way down any further down.  Fished the tennis court flat and caught bunches of fish on sculpin and ginger 1/16 ounce jigs and sculpin jerks. Not seeing any shad down that far.
