Memorial Day Fishing with the Family

The family and I went fishing from the pier on Columbus Lake located on Wilkins-Wise road on Memorial day evening. We did not have much luck with the minnows, but I was able to catch two crappiei with the cast net. Bet I would have better luck in the tournament with the net? Wonder what the club rules say about that... hmmm...

Btw, check out Caleb's skills with the net. This was his first attempts at using the net. Not too bad.

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, crankbaits 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.
