    I met keith at fate sanders around 6:15. We started the day crappie fishing around the boat docks. Within 30 minutes we boated 3 keeper crappie. Two on a white/chart. jig and the other on a minnow. We ran up to a spot near hong kong and we boated 5 keeper crappie, 2 nonkeepers, and a 18 inch smallmouth. Keith has the pic on his phone, maybe he can attach it. Keith also hooked a huge fish and he though he was hung at first. We could see the float coming up and I had the net ready. It made a quick lunge and it snapped his line. He brought the line back up and it was covered in slime, probably a big catfish. We ran to a bass spot and fished it for 15 minutes. Keith caught a largemouth on a carolina rigged lizard that was about 14 inches. Two cast later I catch one on a 1/4 ounce bitsy flip jig in black/blue with a paca chunk trailer. We ran to Jones mill and I caught a 13 inch crappie with a few small yellows mixed in. After that we left. While I was waiting on my dad to get there I was fooling around with a shaky head near the dock. It was in about 2 feet of water and I saw a largemouth around 2 pounds rush out and grab the worm. I set the hook and missed him. Oh well that happens. I am going back out around 5 for crappie at fate sanders.

    I had a good time buddy and don’t be modest. There was no we involved in the crappie catching. This young man wore me out in my own boat today. Throwing the exact same setup and I couldn’t buy a bite. I will attach the smallmouth pic tomorrow.

    I went back to fate boat dock E to fish some more for crappie. My uncle’s friend and his family wanted to know where the crappie are and where to go. I took them out and showed them how. We got 28 keepers on minnows and crappie magnets. I took the fish back to the house and filleted them and sent it home with them. My 10 day old mister twister electric fisherman already has 200 fish ran through it already. At this rate it is going to last two months 😮 . I got back out there at 6:30 and fished until 8. I got 8 keepers and a bunch of fish half the size of the keepers. If I caught every fish that short striked, me and my brother would have caught out limit.
