We seriously killed the crappie population right from the dock. It was so much fun - what I like to call "lazy fishing" due to the lack of effort it takes to slay the buggers. Fish were biting at almost every cast, not much wind, gorgeous sunset, sunflower seeds (always), and a rod. I think the only work it took was baiting the hook and getting the fish on the stringer (and then lifting the stringer for the photo-op).
I'm sure mom is out there now trying for the same crappies or at least wishing she was, just like me :) If only the WAM tourney went through sunset!
