POst reports from those private lakes and ponds. No need to give up the location. Sometimes just knowing they're biting in a region can be a help to others.
I went sailing at Lake Holiday yesterday and took my ultra light kit with me. The wind died for awhile so I started casting and found the crappies about 4' down in the middle of the lake. The first few were over 12" and I didn't think I'd catch many more, but they kept on hitting. I was throwing a 1/32 oz jig on a safety pin spinner with a motor oil colored twister. Most of the hits were on the initial drop and very light. I took home 6 of them and prepared them for the grill. Wife said it was the best fish she's ever had.

Hey - I think you're the only other WCFer who calls them 'safety pin spinners'! Great post.
Keep calm and fish on...
There's a fine line between fishing and just sitting there looking stupid

Sounds like a great meal. Rambler like those safety pin spinners.
