      I thought so, but the colors looked weird to me. Just moved here from SC, so I'm used to saltwater stuff.

  3. Went looking for smallies. After a few hours of catching nothing but dinks, I decided it was a crappie day instead! IWID!!

    1 lb. 12 in. White Crappie with a Spoon

  4. We started off the day with a beautiful double rainbow reflecting off the water at Melvern Lake Marina. Ended up with a few dozen 10" plus keepers, what a great ...more day.

  5. Biggest catfish Brian has caught ever. We were fishing inside the heated dock area. He had a plastic crappie bait with a crappie candy. His pole was a light medium ...more 6'6". The fish weighed in at 8.5 pounds, and put up a great fight on this light tackle.

  6. I took my daughter-in-law and 8 year old grandson from California to the Melverne Lake Marina so they could try crappie fishing. We had a great day, as you can see ...more by the picture and caught a few crappie. My grandson was so excited every time he or someone else caught a fish in the heated dock room that we all could hear him out on the slips. It was great hearing all the stories from the guys fishing out there about their own kids or grand kids that this stirred up. While we were in the enclosed dock it started to bang around like a big wind storm was going on. I asked some of the guys what the heck was going on and they said it was Gar fish banging up against the sides of the dock. Sure enough they started to swim around where we could see them and needless to say my grandson got the biggest kick out of it. He even snagged one and I think the whole world knew about it as he yelled out he caught a ""CIGAR"". LOL.
    We had a great time and made a great memory.
    Thanks to all the regulars out there that made our day a bit more fun, hope we did the same for you all.
