Hot and Windy

By Beau Butler - Posted on 28 June 2010

Had a great weekend on Hugo Lake despite the heat and wind. Crappie were in the timber 12-15'. While we did catch a lot of nice fish, we couldn't find a lot of big slabs. We were pole jigging using 2" grubs and had a lot of nice "thumps". Love the "THUMP". Wind made it tough both days with the heat helping firm up the "crappiei crumbles". Did get to see my good friends Jason and Michelle, and yes, Jason was having the same problem as me, the ladies put it on us. ( They may be looking for new fishing guides if they aren't careful.) I did discover one of Jason's secrets to catching crappie. He has a crappie dog that points out which stump to fish. I saw it. Kim and I managed 78 nice keepers over the weekend. Pictured is a look at Hugo when it's slighly windy and three future fisherman who provided lots of entertainment while I was cleaning fish. They were the Honore' girls from Texas, great neices of retired General Honore', and yes, they speak Cajun.

You are right. If I keep getting wooped like that by Michelle she might have to find her another slave to run the trolling motor. By the way those crappiei dogs are hard to find. Hope to see you on the lake this weekend.

Hope your "Crappie Dog" makes a sppedy recovery. Thinking maybe I'll send a pup over to get her trained.

Looks like you guys had a great time. I may need to get me one of those crappiei pointing dogs. Thanks for the report and the pics.

I tried some of the Platinum Sparkle Nibbles this weekend, and they are really great. However, the sparkles looked pretty good on my pretty little wife, but the neighbors gave me a funny look about the glitter all over my face. Just when I thought Crappie Nibbles coudln't make a bigger mess.
