We slow trolled, keeping the baits tight on the bottom, and focused on the creek channel, points, and humps. The wind made things somewhat difficult, but not impossible. A little after lunch time we found a big school of perch back up the creek a ways. We just set the anchor out and let my son catch his fill. We did pick a couple of crappie out of the crowd there. The crappie bites were very subtle yesterday. You really had to watch the rod tips to pick them up.

We had to cull through about 20 white perch for every crappie we caught, but we ended up bringing home a few. I think we kept 6 crappie, and about 8-10 decent sized perch. The few crappie we did catch were at least quality fish.
