My fishing partner in crime and myself kicked off our winter crappie season. We had a great day. Kinda got off to a late start @ the crack off 9:30 and done by 11 AM. with both of us catching our crappie limits (10 ea.) After that we kept fishing for perch and bluegill and kept around 200 perch and a dozen or so bluegill for the day. There were maybe 25 bank fishermen and maybe 15 other boats through out the day. We fished back in the Streeters canal. 1/64 oz. chartreuse tube jigs 15 inches below our bobbers. The key to hammering the crappie was keep it moving. We were reeling the handle 2 times, stoping for no more than 3 seconds and reel again and that was what was working best for us.
