I was thinking about heading over there as well this weekend. Have you been finding better size of the crappies on the east or the west side?

We haven't tired the west side at all, we're set up on the east side.

Iwas on the sw end. Lots of small sunnies. I small [PoorWordUsage]. I did see something interesting. I was sitting there and I noticed my vex move in the hole. I figured it was a northern, so I looked. Here was this huge Bowfin!!! It was just checking out my equipment make sure it was working right or something. I caught a couple of those out bass fishing one trip. I know they are rough fish, but I will say, the two I caught put up a real nice fight.

they do that from time to time. I had one do that to me on a Sippi backwater spot. Dogfish fight real hard. I used to hate them but now kinda like them. Especially those bigguns. When they spawn the males have elec blue fins. If I see one I'll try to get it to bite, but would rather catch a bass or walter.

I was out tonight. Had a rough go of it. Marked a ton of fish, but only landed 2 Crappies. I tossed what I had at them. Did anyone else experience the same? We were in 26' in the 2nd group of houses North of Harty's.

I was out of French Park amongst the city of houses yesterday. Saw a lot of crappies on the camera, but only got perch to bite. Was in about 32fow. Moved up to 19 with no luck either.

      Fall fishing can be excellent but the weather can be iffy. Fortune bay casino has a nice marina. It has a bait shop, fillet house, freezer for you to keep your fish, beer, and gas. The rooms are nice and a decent price. Plus if you sign up for their card and gamble a little they will sent you coupons which commonly include a couple of free week night room rentals. It's not like the cabin feel on the lake but they have a nice pool, hot tub, sauna, and exercise room. They have a little arcade for the kids too. You can get food 24/7 and the bar is always open and has the sports games on. I know it's not for everyone but we have 2 little ones so the pool and arcade are great when they lose their patience with the boat.

      Was out yesterday 9am till 2pm. Fished by dam, airplane, pontoon, dock. Fish were terribly negative. Three guys, three gills, one rock bass and dink perch. We were able to drive our pickup truck every where.
