Fished pickwick on the 14th and 15th. Sorry no pictures. The crappiei haven't been big like last year but the numbers are good. Keeperi fish are in the 10 to 12 inch size. We are fishing Rock ledges in and around the main river. We are releasing loads of small fish. Single pole vertical fishing with jigs. Chartreuse has been the key color. Water was in the mid to upper 40's yesterday. Caught a double limit 60 fish Tuesday and 35 on wednesday. Hope the weather holds out for the weekend.

Yes we've had the pattern down lately. Only been fishing around 4 hours due to schedules and such. Looks like rain tomorrow. Maybe Sunday or Monday. Schools out Monday so maybe the kids can get in on the fun.

To add a comment depth was not as important as location. Had to be rocks close to deep water.

A method of keeping fish alive after they have been caught. A string or small nylon rope is threaded through the mouth and gills of a fish and is then tied off to the boat or dock allowing the fish to remain overboard in the water but preventing them from swimming away. With the advent of livewells and other more modern methods of keeping fish, stringers have become nearly obsolete, but can still be quite handy when fishing from the bank of a pond. The term 'stringer' is also used by anglers to indicate the size of their catch for the day (10-pound stringer = 10 pounds of fish).
