Crappie WOOOHOOO !!!

Aaron and I went fishing Saturday and I caught mega crappie. I also caught a number of sandbass, green and redear sunfish, and LMB. It was a great fishing day. Of course, I whooped Aaron. He says "let's go to the river so I can beat you again". He beat me once at the Red River and now it's "beat you again?" . Oh well.
It was his first time to kayak fish and he asked me "why didn't we do this a long time ago?". Well, I, just like everyone else, thought kayaks were pretty scary. You see people in them turning over, doing eskimo rolls and stuff and it kinda doesn't make them very appealing. Fishing kayaks are not like those white water yaks. They are more stable and designed for fishing.

I also went Sunday morning and caught several crappie and sandbass before the wind began gusting and I headed for the boat ramp. I'll be off for five days starting Wednesday so check back soon for more fishing updates.

Fish Fear Me...

... that's what my hitch cover says. Well it's true they do and in two days they'll be nervous again. I'm sooooooo ready for a few days off and some agressive fishing. Last week I worked one of my days off and then turned around and worked 12 hours on Sunday as well. Therefore, I'm ready to relax and do some fishin. I've located crappie in shallow water and they are biting really good on both hand tied jigs and on electric chicken Panfish Asassins. Most of what I have caught are still full of eggs so for some reason they have not spawned. Maybe the heat combined with the nice weather will bring them in shallow in numbers and then the bite will be on.

Good luck and tight lines,
