Went out on Columbus Lake early this morning for a couple of hours. I caught about 15 crappiei with 3 of them being over 1.25. I was fishing in 6 to 8 foot of water and using the "hooker" jig.

Nice fish Ray, I bet it was tough in the heat. Glad to see that someone is getting to fish. I think I got all my honey do's done and can get back to fishing.

I was wondering what you were up to Beau. Ya'll got that "dry heat" out there right?

No such thing as dry heat here--100% humidity--98-100 degrees
in the shade.

But-will be back fishing this weekend if not before.

Nice fish Ray. A good idea to get out of the sun early. After yesterday it will be a while before I stay out more than a few hours.

You are right. As soon as it started getting hot this morning I had flashbacks of Saturday on the lake. Man it was hot. Breaking daylight is my favorite time of the day anyway.

Angling for Crappie is popular throughout much of North America. Methods vary, but among the most popular is called 'Spider Rigging', a method characterized by a fisherman in a boat with many long fishing rods pointing away from the angler at various angles like spokes from a wheel. Anglers who employ the Spider Rigging method may choose from among many popular baits. Some of the most popular are plastic jigs with lead jig heads, crank baits or live minnows. Many anglers also chum or dump live bait into the water to attract the fish hoping the fish will bite their bait. Crappie are also regularly targeted and caught during the spawning period by fly fishermen, and can be taken from frozen ponds and lakes in winter by ice fishing.
