Summary

I ran my first inland crappie trip yesterday and with the wind, we had to do a little bit of work to get them to go.  It wasn’t until my client finally threw his banana overboard (after I broke my 13 Fishing Omen Black after getting wrapped in the trolling motor) then it was game on.  We started off catching a bunch of smaller crappies and one of my clients missed one in the 13’’ range.  I then decided to make a move and it payed off.  We put a dozen quality crappies in the box, the biggest one pushing 14’‘.  Now only if my clients could have stuck every fish they missed we would have had a stellar day with over 40 fish in the box but that’s fishing.  It wasn’t for the lack of hits.  I even missed possibly the biggest crappie I have ever had on which I’m still stinging about.  You know it’s a good one when the mouth comes out of the water and you think it’s a small bass but then realize it’s a crappie.  But with the salmon action taking off on Lake Michigan, it’ll take quite a bit for me to pull myself away from the big pond, unless the wind starts blowing.

Monday I was out with two old timers I fish with on a different inland lake and we ended up putting 20 quality bluegills and 1 nice crappie in the box.  It was a pleasant surprise doubling up on large mouth bass while bluegill fishing.  It wont be long before the big bruiser gills start snapping.
