My good friend Todd and I got 2.5 hours of fishing in Friday evening from 6:30 to 9:00. Within the first 45 minutes we had 5 different species in the boat. The smallmouth and crappie were smashing it. We ended our short outing with well over 20 fish (bringing home only 1 legal eye and one slab crappie for dinner). I am amazed every year how good this fishery actually is. Water temp LAST week was 49 degrees and it is now 58 degrees! We tried deep and had a hard time finding weeds that held pots of fish. Shallow was the ticket as expected. Charlie Brewer Sliders and Old Fart 1/4 oz once again.
