I was dead set on staying home and tying flies today. Got up at 6:30 a.m. and started tying. By 8 a.m., I already had 3 dozen cranked out. 

Then I got the phone call. A buddy of mine calling and started twisting my arm. I’m telling you, he was twisting hard. I think it went something like this……Hey, you wanna go……..and at that very moment, it was hurting soooooo bad that I caved and cried uncle. I was in. Turned out we were going to hunt for some crappies.

We did not get on the water till about 1 p.m. and we put in down below Cape Fair Marina. Pulled up to a bluff transition, found a brush pile and started catching slabs. Only fished about 2 1/2 hours and put 15 keepers in the boat, probably caught another 20 shorts.

We were throwing small jigs in just about any color would work as long as it was within 2 feet of some brush in 8 to 15 feet of water. water temps were reading 52 to 54 degrees. Now that my belly is fully of fresh fried crappie……time to get back to tying flies.
