    How'd you do with the crappies?

    I've seen write ups on them, which were all good, but have never used one. Curious to know your experience.

    SG, did you do any good? I tried to wait, but I have an insatiable curiosity. :)

    we decided to fish the afternoon up until dark. when we go again, probably this sat if weather permits, i'll email you.

    we've caught 3 real nice crappie at our spot. they've been wierd this year, i don't know why we didn't catch anymore. they usually run in schools, small or large.

    While fishing with a wheelchair-bound friend and my old roommate (I wasn't fishing much, they were) at night in a pond, I got curious (they were catfish and bass-fishing) having heard the various green-light stories, so I pulled out a full-size chem light (Cyalume) tied it a foot above the bait for the catfish and had them chuck it in. Nibbles and hits subsequently increased dramatically! :) (several per minute at least) though the fish were picky that night and refused to be caught, they were attracted to it. Tried it at a local lake a few weeks later against white bass and it helped nail a bunch of them.

    The smaller-size Cyalumes would probably work a bit better.
