Found some slabs today!

Recommended Posts

Fished with my dad today from 2pm-7pm. Put in at Bridgeport and parking lot was packed. Went to some of our spots and only had to hit 3 of them to get two limits! 18 of them came from one spot. Most fish were 11.5-13 inches. Fish were caught from 6-12 feet on structure. Mainly threw a blue with chartreuse tail crappie slider today. Also caught some on a Go Go minnow. Haven't ever fished one of those before it did well. And caught a few on the crappie thunder as well!

Thanks for the report. I have some sliders in that color but have never used them. Looks like it's time to try them out.

Yeah I love that color! That does good and the white with chartreuse tail and June bug and chartreuse are my favorites. I use the orange slider heads mainly in 1/16th oz. hadn't ever used slider heads or jigs before but that's all I will use from now on. They rarely get snagged in brush and stuff unless the hook is exposed. You can get right down in the cover and just pull it through and let it fall and BOOM!

Man, I've got a bunch of those little crappie Sliders but I hardly ever use em' cause I just can't convince myself that it's possible to get a hookset on a crappie with the hook buried in the grub like that.

In my nimrod brain, if I pulled hard enough to penetrate the plastic, I'd rip their entire mouth off.  

Obviously, that's about as accurate as most other things I believe so I guess I need to get out there and just trust it.

Great bunch of fish!

Dude I thought the exact same thing!! And still so even though I've caught tons of crappie on them! Just started using them last year, I had always passed the crappie sliders at bass pro and was like man those things look weird I wonder if they work so last year I bought some sliders and some slider jig heads and that's 90% what I throw now. It's Incrediable how you can get in the brush and structure and pull right through it. Just make sure the hook point isn't exposed at all and if you do that you can literally get right down in that stuff and just pull it through and let it fall and most the time you will get a huge thump! And you just set the hook like you usually would and it will get em!
