I got an email around 9pm Friday from my buddy Mike wanting to go out fish a private lake that he has access to. So at 5am woke up the wife and headed out with the boat. Met mike around 530 and we were on our way. Mike immediately caught a sm LMB. and fishing was pretty good throughout the day. We caught many species including perch,gills,LMB,crappies, and cats. All small except for a nice 16" crappie that mike landed and was his biggest to date.
Here are some pics. All fish were caught on live bait, crawlers and minnows out produced leeches.
Great Report Mrb .. I really Enjoy them lucky guy, Glad you your wife and Mike had a great time out on the water, And Nice CRappie My biggest is only 14 1/2 on the chicago River ( But will beat it this winter ! )
