Even though my back was bugging me yet again today, I finally made my way out to "The Hole" on Platte to try some Silver prospecting. The crappies were indeed out there but the size left a lot to be desired. I got two 9inchers and missed a few others that size; I probably should have had 6-7 keepers. Mostly they were potatoe chips or 7-8 inchers. The action was steady and with the bigger fish biting at prime time and after dark. I was fishing by about 3:30PM. Ice was 12-14 so it's good enough for driving on Platte.
If I head out tomorrow I will probably try to be a bit more mobile and look for pannies in the weeds. It sure got cold and windy out there. BRRRRRRRRRRRRR.
