Cranky Baby

I've been reading some articles lately about using a small crankbait for crappie.

I picked up some tiny cranks at Academy Sports & Outdoors not long ago.


After losing two more bass on the BGW, I decided to try the little crank.

Behold! The Power of the Press!


This white crappie really took the small bait and as shown here almost swallowed it. Fortunately, I was able to retreive it with my hemostats with no damage to the fish.

This green sunfish was also tempted to this little lure.
Check out the markings on his fins.


Not to be outdone, the bass had to get in in the action too.

This little guy is the smallest one yet.
This is the future lunker of the pond.

Even this good sized slab thought it was worth a try.

It was windy and cloudy with high humidity and was warm enough for shorts. Not a bad way to spend a couple hours on a Saturday afternoon.

Bet these fish wish you didn't have so much reading time in airports!
