    Default It's never too cold

    Went to the maysville quarries Saturday and Sunday. Used live minnows hooked through the lips suspended at about 15' on a bobber for one rod and used a size six hook with a 1" yellow tube tipped with a live minnow on another. The tube had a cone weight 12" up and I would drop it all the way to the bottom and slowly raise it up. They were not biting if you dropped it. Raise it a foot, pause, raise it some more, pause longer. I saw very few crappie suspended. Almost all came off the bottom but they would come up from 23' to hit the suspended minnow at 15'. I got 11 yesterday and 21 today (no I didn't poach one I only kept 20).

    Muddy all the rivers and creeks around us hold Crappie just have to change up the tactics a bit. I keep forgetting you are right down the road from me!

    Yeah, I've caught a few, but I just haven't figured out the right tactics for these streams. I'm used to finding brushpiles and dropping minnows on top of 'em. That just doesn't work as well down this way. I'm actually headed up to Warren county tomorrow with my 'yak for a bit of duck hunting. Taking my fishing pole just in case I get time to head to Kerr for a quick try.
