Hey guys, I wanted to just get out and do something different today. So i asked my girl friend and She Suggested Crappie, I took a lot of interest in it and Did what I could last night going over my logs. The Plan today being 43 Degrees Overcast and Raining was to hit Two main Bridges that are abundant with structure and even more so bait fish. I Ended up throwing the grub of choice because it has been so successful with my past perch/bass outings. and it didn't fail it was a great time out today i had a Wonderful time! The First crappie especially was a beautiful fish she had a huge belly and hit like a freight train.

Here's your Video, hope you enjoy.

I like the ice jig/twister combo, it definately had some great action to it.

I also like the reference to urban structure. Shopping carts......that cracks me up...but using the structure provided shows adaptation to one's surroundings.
Nice video.
