Default Sag West - 01/14/2020 - decent (if you like dink fish)

Got sick of waiting for ice so I invited PalosBob along for a trip to Sag West just so we could wet a line. We fished the area I was catching gills at back in early March of last year and they were still cooperating. As usual, most of the gills were under six inches. In fact I think of all the gills we caught (at least 3 dozen) were all under six inches. Kept 21 gills to use for garden fertilizer. We probably landed a dozen crappie(pretty sure they were white ones) but most were in the 5 - 6 inch range. I caught the 'whopper' that was a little under 8 inches. All crappie released. I also caught a dink bass, perhaps 7 inches tops. All caught on an ice jig tipped with a wax worm and a small slip float to keep the bait just off the bottom.

It was nice to get out. Would have been nicer if it was on ice!

Standard size crappie

The 'beast'

Garden fertilizer gills
