Default Backwater Crappies

I hit a channel on the fox Sunday and today and It was absoulutley fantastic, Sunday I caught over 90 crappies and today over 100, Buddy of mine on sunday caught over 130. I wound up keeping 25 crappies for myself they were between 91/2 and 11 inches! First time all year that I kept some. I caught over 70 fish today on Plastics 1/32 oz. char. head with a shad colored tail and also 1/64 oz cubby tails pink & white and char. & white The rest of my fish came on minnows and slip bobbers 2 to 3 feet down just below the ice! The coolest part of fishing the last 2 days was sighting the fish and watching them inhale my jig which fell ever so slow due to the size shad tail I was using, even the smaller crappies inhale the plastic like it was there last supper, Gotta love a mid winter melt off and new moon phase going this week also a good influx of fresh crappies coming in and out of the river and by the way I was in 4 to 5 feet of water and you could see the fish almost under everyhole!
