Itching to try out my new St. Croix UL I got for Xmas, so I headed out to the river around 10am - 1pm for some crappie and gills. Water level is high and stained, I hit creekmouths and areas with little or no current. My buddy met up with me around 1130.

No hits on minnows, all fish came on a ratfinky tipped with waxies. The crappie didnt cooperate for me but the gills sure did. My buddy got a handful of crappies but small. Alot of surface activity and alot of fast action with some gills coming on each cast. A few doubles between us, there where some nice ones mixed in with the little guys. Around 1pm the bite died and I headed out.

Here are the peektures of some of the nicer ones:
