Catching Crappie in a snowstorm

Chad and Dad made it happen this past weekend January 28, 29 – 2017. Saturday we caught 35. Sunday (in a snowstorm) we caught 24. Notice the little grin on Chad’s face. He never gives up. Had to fight with him to come in during the snowstorm. Had a great time! You have to love it! We do.

It was windy Saturday and fairly calm Sunday, Ambient temp both days was around 34-39 degrees. Water is still about 75% clarity. Water temp 42 degrees.

January Crappie at East Fork – 2017

Chad insisted on going Sunday and defied the odds. Had on his “new” heated socks. It was 15 degrees out – and Old man Winter didn’t stop Chad. Crappie were biting! To cold for Dad. Brought home a real nice mess of fish. Real nice Black Crappie and some whites. I lectured him about it being to cold. Didn’t pay attention – went anyway! Had a great time! Said the old Beaver was working overtime and saw some real beautiful species of Ohio waterfowl.

Dad’s Christmas gift – 2016

Dad got to enjoy some fantastic Christmas Crappie fishing again this year – with fishing partner Chad. Chad and Dad got into a real nice mess of Christmas Crappie in East Fork Lake’s ice cold 45 degree water. Clarity was about 70%. No minnows! All came on jigs! Some at 4 ft. depth – some at 10-12′ depth.

December East Fork Crappie – Chad and Dad

Went out yesterday. Southeast wind, sleet, 38 degree air, 50 degree water, clear. Fished several spots…found (1) honey hole. Crappie lit up for about an hour. Mostly big whites – few Blacks all around 10-11 inches. Real nice mess of fish.

Took the photo below I thought was interesting.

Enjoying life fishing with Chad. Chad of course showed me the honey hole. Smiles. Brought home 25-30.
