With the north wind howling

I was able to catch several nice crappie

in 12 to 15 foot of water on hair jigs.

The bite was slow but steady.

Surface temperature … 57*

Crappie Bite is Hot

+++++

The lake level is down.

Difficult to get up the creeks.

But low water makes easy fishing in tributaries.

A limit of 25 crappie ready to be filleted.

These fillets will now be seasonal and dip in meal.

++++++++

Seasoned and ready for the freezer.

+++++++

Frozen into fish strips.

Ready for the grand-kids.

Sure makes it is to cook fish.

Largest weighed 2.25 pounds with three weighing nearly two pounds and

several above 1.25 pounds.

It was really a nice stringer of big winter time crappie caught in 15′ on a creek channel.

When cleaning previous catches, I discovered their stomachs full of small bream so I put out a perch trap

and started fishing with small perch with great success.
