Location:Piney Run Reservoir MD

Species:Crappie

As the afternoon wore on, the Crappie bite picked up but I still couldn't hook up. He told me he was using a 1/64 ounce feather fly in yellow and that my 1/32 ounce feather fly in white was just too heavy.

Who was I to doubt this Crappie God, but I didn't get any interest.

I switched back to my spinner and after three or four casts here comes this nice Crappie with his mouth wide open following my lure. The hook up was in slow motion, I guess because the water was so clear and he was pretty deep when I first saw him.

He was a very nice Crappie by my standards, at least 10" and plump. Most definitely dinner for me but when I started thinking about having to go to the fish market for another fish for my wife, he was let go to fight again another day.
