Plan A was to walk to the other side of the spillway and fish from one side to the other. When I got to where I was going to start, I walked up a little hill to get a better look to see if any fish were swimming near by. I did see one, so I started my casting, first on the outside of the buoys (If I hooked a good sized one, he would make a run toward the lake and I didn't want to have to try and turn him so he wouldn't tangle in the buoy cable) and then on the inside.
A half dozen casts later, I hooked the Crappie (You guys know I don't have a clue between Crappie and Blue Gill) below. I've worked hard in other lakes and all I've caught are those little ones and here I catch a big (this one was probably close to a pound) by accident.
OK, back to the spillway and near where I caught the first Crappie, I hooked up again. I took this picture of the other side so you wouldn't think I took two pictures of the same fish. Kind of hard to tell them apart. Could have been the same fish, but I would think he wasn't dumb enough to take the same lure twice. Any of you crappie experts out there got any thoughts on that?
I fished for another hour or so working up and down the spillway area, but it just wasn't going to happen today. That's OK, there will be a next time.
Till the next adventure.
