Long Creek Crappie 4/8/17


Nitro 750

Recommended Posts

My wife and I launched at 6:45 at Long Creek ramp.  Chilly ride this morning!!!!  We both started out throwing green pumpkin chartreuse pepper tube jig on a 1/16th oz. head.  We threw to the bank and fished out to about 15 feet of water.  Most crappie was caught right close to bank out to 10 feet depth.  The bite was very light and sometimes you would just feel extra weight on your line.  You would catch one or two in a spot and then you would have to move to a different spot.  We did find one spot that we caught 7 or 8 on it.  We also threw a chartreuse body with a white tail marabou jig and caught a few on it, but most came on the tube jig.  The bite was mostly over by 10:30.  We ended the day with 21 keepers, we did not catch any short fish today.  We also lost several crappie right at the boat.  Water temp was 57.5 when we started and 58.8 when we ended.

Outstanding!

I do have one question though.  How do you get them to all line up in formation like that and then stay still for the photo?

I've never even been able to get people to do that!

It takes awhile, we all have a long talk and they finally understand what I want and they just jump right in line and lay still!!!!:lol:  I dispatch my fish before I clean them, so they have all been dispatched to get the pic.i

Hmm.  Interesting.  

In my prior comment, I alluded to issues when attempting to similarly photograph people.

Do you think that your "dispatch" technique would be equally effective when taking group photos at, say, family reunions or similar gatherings?

It would work quite well for "stills" not so much for action shots.  I actually Houghton about you Vernon yesterday, I finished rigging up some of my fishing rods and right next to the boat was a set of golf clubs, teed one up and now it is somewhere down in my pasture. I thkught, now all I need is a Ranger boat.  I already have a Jayhawk hat but not because I cheer for them, except their nurses and doctors.
