Default found the bigger fish on sunday

decided to brave the cold winds on sunday and hit the north end of the cong where i was having problems finding bigger crappies. hit a spot that never had big fish and was surprised to find some bigger fish in there. the method was the same jig-n-bobber jig two and a half ft below the bobber. fish were in 4 to 6 fow they wanted the offering with a hop-n-pop retrieve. the wind picked up at 10:30 only fished for an hour more and called it the day. i was able to get 34 fish with the majority of them being over 12" the wind was pretty bad and the old town was taking on some water from all the wishy washy wave action that was going on in that wind blown cove.my anchor was not holding to well in that wind and i would drift right over them and you do not want to be where you are casting to the fish.

They look like Crappie balloons they're so fat. Way to make the most of a short outing. And good idea gettin off that water in that wind...the water is still too cold to be messin around with...stay safe out there.

Good report. Glad to see the bite is still on. Slabs too. I found the jumbo perch Saturday where you saw me unhooking one.
