Went to Galesburg, IL for Easter. Went to Al's to get some live bait - minnows and night crawlers - before hitting Lake Storey. Al is a very nice guy and runs a good tackle store. Started fishing about 7:30AM by the boat ramp near Henderson. All the ice were gone.

Moved around to various spots and ended up at the other boat ramp. Chatted for a few minutes with a guy about to launch his boat. Right as he was getting on his boat, I get two solid bites. I set the hook with the minnow on a Carolina rig and have a great few seconds fighting a fish. To my surprise, it was a 11" crappie.

I just got a new cell phone without a camera, so no pictures. That was the only fish caught for the day. Stopped at noon and spent the afternoon just chillin.
