Smithland Pool Fall Crappie
Went to the river this past Tuesday to catch a few crappiei. But first I needed to get some bait. I have a little sandbar that has lots of emerald shiners on it. A couple of good cast with a 1/4 inch net will usually get plenty of bait for the days fishing. As you can tell I very often put more bait in the boat instead of the bucket. This was about 24 hours before a big rain front was going to hit our area. The wind was blowing 15 mph out of the North with clear skies. The water in the creeks was 52 degrees and very clear for the Ohio River. The fish were hitting very well this day, ended up with 24 crappie from 10-13 inches. Beautiful sunset, the storm front is starting to show up. Fall fishing is my favorite! I have much to be thankful for! May the Lord bless you and your family this Thanksgiving Day.
