What's that saying I've heard said on here?

Never leave fish to find fish...?

Got started yesterday about noon.  

WT 41 degrees up river in the area I was at.

I've been for the past several weeks rigging, trying different parts of the river arm and lake.  Other coves, main river, further down river, even testing my A.D.D. jig fishing piles that a friend of mine is having great success at.

All just to try and find bigger fish.

Everywhere I would go was pretty much the same results.  Catching 5-10 dinks to one keeper crappie.  

It's insane! I'm buying extra minnows just for that reason.

Yesterday, plan was to go rigging a main river flat I haven't tried yet but, the wind change that.

Ended up river where I've been catching them all along before I went on the search.

Caught well over 20 and just kept 10.

Pushing double minnow rigs and double jig rigs, tip with little minnows.  

Most of all my fish where caught in 6-9 foot of water 4-6 feet down.  Did catch some in 12 fow 8-10 feet down as well, but most in the 6-9 foot range.

Funny thing at the end while putting my poles back in their holders and putting minnow rigs away.  I was down to my last rod still being in the water and while putting a minnow rig away all of sudden BAM! Rod tip buried in the water, I snatched it and yanked up a another healthy 13" female crappie.  

Good way to end the day!

God bless and Merry Christmas!

Very nice fish Lance. I tried some jigs (no minnows) around the Blue Springs and didn't get anything over 10". Maybe it is the minnows or more than likely fishing skill. Merry Christmas to all!

Thanks....  There is ton of those 7-9 inchers all over the place.  With rigging I'm always using straight minnows or jigs tip with minnows.  They seem to not spit it out as quick when you got a minnow on there and I'm able to reach out to set hook.  If you know what I'm saying?
