Ran Out of Minnows Again
Lets just say I wasn't impressed with the scoop of minnows I got from the Deer Haven Store (formerly Gross's Store) and they didn't put my scoop back in the pail. Anyway's the minnows lasted me until 10PM tonight and I got 19 silver bullheads on them. Several came on dead minnows, glad I didn't throw the dead one's out when I got there. Grumpy Old Men Willard and Bud where there but didn't fish. I got their a 7PM and managed to get the same spot on the SE rocks I got yesterday. I was kind of lucky because a big group arrived after I got there. A lot of bullheads were caught on both the SE and SW side and even on the North side as well. Scott Johnson arrived after dark. I think I threw back 4 total and didn't keep anything. Only a couple of jumpin bullheads were caught by others. I got everything on my last glow Cubby body which is now half a body.
Of Note: I've already caught more crappies this year (74) than I did in all of last year (57). Of coarse last year I didn't catch any until the 25th of April. I stopped fishing for crappies on the Opener
