All 5-6" bluegills you want with the common 6-7" crappie mixed into the school. I got a kick seeing the dozens of people on the lake on a weekday none the less, and they flock to it for fish that size! All I can say is Wow!

Best since when?? I honestly don't spend alot of time one these lakes cuz I know where I can do better and get bigger fish. The times I do fish it is mostly during the day, so unless you catch these eye balled 13" crappies in the middle of the night, I guess no I am not fishing at the right time. Also Jaydog did you catch all those nice crappies by the sunken tree crappie reef out on Julia too??

      I have had good luck with a #4 red hook. About 5-6' of 10lb mono and tie the hook directly to the line. Hook the minnow along the back.

      Fished Owasso last summer for the first time since the winter kill, caught one bass in 4 hours. My wife was fishing for pan fish and didn't get a nibble. You might want to look for another lake. CW

      I use about a 6' leader of 10lb flouro tied to my main line with a small barrel swivel. As far as hooks go I don't use just one. I prefer a treble of some sort, usually a small glow spoon. If it's a single hook I lean towards bigger is better, but also in glow. Set it up at your desired depth and don't just forget about it. Check it, move it, check it, move it. You can cover a good amount of water if you aren't lazy about it. Also I use just a simple bobber tie for my depth marker instead of those little bobbers. No real reason why that's just what I'm used to. Good luck, half the fun is learning what works best for you.

      Hey everyone, picked up a frabil insulated tip up last weekend and I want to use it for a set line for walleyes when I want to set up another line in different depths. So I put about 100 years of 20 pound braid tip up line on it. My question is what do I use for my leader? I've herd mono and flouro work good but I don't know which is best? And as far as hooks go what to you guys use? Single red hook? Treble? Sure set? Thanks!
