    1. I need one of those!
  3. Skillful Angler Suicide Crappie. I hooked this fish, spit the hook at the surface and then decided to play dead and float on the surface. Silly fish. Better to be ...more lucky than good!

  4. and...yo guessed it....still not spawning. Duane trying to hold a lake trout is like that scene in Talledaga Nights where Ricky Bobby doesn't know what to ...more do with his hands while being interviewed hahaha

    1. Thatd be extreemly unlikely for nj but i can see what you mean. I think its just lighting up to spawn soon
