I got him at 8:15 am, home at 8:20 am (the surgery center was just around the corner) and was out to North Shore Lake Camanche by 9:00 am.
My friend Rubin was there and already had one in the cooler. I set up next to him with two rods of rainbow Power Bait (he caught his on chartreuse) and drank my Starbucks coffee. Made sure I didn't drop it this time.
Then around 10:00 Rubin caught his second one. Remember now, I'm fishing right next to him.
I tried adding garlic and sweet corn to the Power Bait, I tried silver, pink, green/silver, Firetiger, and even gold Kastmasters. I even tried Crappie Jigs. WHAT THE HELL !!!
Not a bite. At Noon I went home.
Now, a little info on the Crappie Jig. This is a set up that Bill Trussell sent me, seems like a year ago or maybe even longer. Jigs, hooks, and some some stuff called Crappie Nibbles. Since I've been lax in trying out this rig, the nibbles dried out and to get them on a hook, I needed a drill and small bit. So I''ll have to get some fresher ones and give it another try. Going to do some warm water fishing this summer. See if I can scare up a Crappie or two.
Last week Yuki and I went to South Shore in search of Crappie. There was nothing to report so I didn't report. The previous pigs that fished there left a bunch of empty beer bottles and one unopened bottle of Corona. If they were going to leave one, the least they could have done was leave it on ice. A slice of lime would have been nice too.
