      Fish early off by ten and late. That's only time I fish. Herring were so abundant in the am you could walk across them.
    2. I've heard that Bryan but i haven't had much luck with them and the other stuff been working so well i don't usually drop one down anymore.
    3. Jack you couldn't pay me enough money to go anywhere near hopatcong or spruce during the daytime in summer! hahaha. maybe a night trip if i can get some company, ...more but the bite is probably super late like 1am to sunrise.
    4. Nice,they catch a lot of them on big tubes in the bigger Laker lakes here in Colorado

  8. This was probably the average sized crappie from yesterday 12-13" with a couple over 14" and arty's 16" monster. 60 fish for a half day of fishing. ...more It was a blast.

      Great job guys!! πŸ‘Š
    2. max if you find structure near deep water and/or mark little groups of fish drop a small jig on them. sometimes they want it dropping by them fast, not giving them ...more a chance to think about it they just grab it. the sunnier the better imo, packs them tight to the structure. if it's cloudy you're probably better off drifting/trolling and scanning with the ff to find them spread out.
    3. We don't have video proof, but we're pretty sure either Arty is down under the water hooking them on his line, or he uses dynamite! Lmao
    4. Max Cobb 0
      Man, I can't figure out the crappie. We found several brush piles at the right depth, but no luck with live minnows. What's the secret?
    5. Greenwood Lake was fun
    6. hahaha, yeah robert that's exactly what happened hahaha
    7. Beautiful fish
    8. Look at you Chris, being a true fisherman and letting Arty catch the big one! My hat's off to you good sir! Good eaters bud! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘
