Default Pretty nice Maple Crappie

yea so I found myself out fiddlin around this morning... a bit nippy this morning. I worked maple lake today and had a pretty good day. Caught a bunch of gills by the parking lot on 95th St... All small except one that was at best guess 6 inches... didnt measure or take a pic. So anyways, I was just planning on messin with the gill, so I was using an ultra lite.. with a slip float, small bleeding red hook, size 10, and wax worms... well its gettin close to 9 and Im gettin bored with the gills, thinkin about leaving and the got a nice hit... realing in felt pretty nice thought it was a bass but a pretty nice crappie... this time i had MY digital camera and I got a pic with a tape measure thanks to a nice gentleman out there I talked with most of the day. Im gonna go back out for a bit, I dont know where, but Ill find fish lol.

Heres that nice crappie, oh yea, it was on a stringer so I could grab my camera from the car real quick, and YES it was released!

Yea I have been pleasingly surprised by CCFP so far since its gotten warmer... I've never caught crappie out of these lakes before, and the first 2 Ive caught this year were 13" and 9" so not a bad start.

Looks like the man has had some good success on the CCFP lakes. Better let OZ in on your little secret.
