This one got it done for me on Saturday. Eight crappies between 12 and 14 inches from a metro lake in less than an hour. Unfortunately couldn't find them on Sunday.

1/4 oz mimic minnow and a large spinner. Upsized to get away from constant small fish. I was amazed when a lure this size worked.

Is this a Betts?? I like plastics having this shaped

tail. I use Cubby-Mites ALOT, and plain or tipped with a

Power-Bait nibbler, will easily out fish some one with

hook and minnow...

Trolling or casting with these spinner baits?

Would trolling work or do they go deep enough to catch weeds.

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?

      Grindstone is stocked in the spring, I think also in the fall. Many trout survive a 2nd and 3rd year.

      I caught a bunch years ago and they were just fine. Fried hem up back then.  They have a dandy flavor.  I have a bunch more that I froze and will throw some in the peanut oil soon.
