I'm a snow bird from Wis/ Minn and have been watching your forum for about a year. Haven't been able to attend any meetings yet as they never seem to match my schedule/location. Love crappie fishing and have been to Alamo several times (not this year yet due to no good reports on that lake) and Bartlett. Don't yet know my way around Bartlett.
I really appreciate the fishing news you guys provide especially because of the many miles between lakes around here. Where I come from lakes are more plentyfull but truth be told the crappies are a lot smaller.

I am originally from L.A. Lower Alabama. I have been here since Jan. 89 and I have fished for everything in Most of our lakes. I like night fishing Crappie more than day time trolling. Of course I have NO Idea what I would be doing trolling for them. I have a FEW Health issues that stop me from working but I enjoy every day I have and every fishing trip is special.

Not real new lurked for awhile but here goes .I am a snowbird I guess I am here in AZ ( Sun City formerly Mesa) sometimes  from Late October lately from January to April . In Minnesota I fish extensively on Lake Mille Lacs and Lake Of the Woods. Here in Az I have a 18.5 ft Tracker Xt 60 4 stk merc set up for crappie fishing . My fishing buddies are other Minnesota snow birds who also fish extensively in the Midwest .When Dad was alive we fished with Art Chamberlain several times. You can see the problem with this as there is very little knowledge as to how and where and when to fish in AZ. So I and possibly  my buddies  would be interested in joining with others who have a common interest in fishing here in Az . With that said the events you list as club events and needing to attend two present a problem, 1.I do not currently have my pickup camper here in AZ so I would pretty much have to make it a day event , 2.In April when you have your Spring event I will have a house full of guests 4 grand kids and there parents so I may not be able to attend ( maybe I can get one parent and 4 kids in the boat(they all love to fish ). I am interested but the time frame you  guys have wil make it difficult any suggestions?.

Hello to everyone!

I grew up in northwest Florida, AKA LA, Lower Alabama, and joined the military shortly after high school. I was first assigned to Davis Monthan AFB in 97 and relocated to Arkansas in 2001. For a guy growing up outdoors, Arkansas was paradise! Unfortunately I couldn't stay and in 2007 I relocated back out here. I love to fish but feel clueless on how to be a succesful fisherman out here. Thats why I joined the site. I'm looking forward to gaining knowledge from some guys that have experience out here.

Originally from Iowa, moved here in 95.  Fished a lot when I was a kid, started again locally about 3 years ago after buying a boat from my father-in-law.  Over the past 10-12 years fished with the father-in-law at/near their cabin on Stark Lake in central Minnesota about 20 miles NW of Aitkin.  (Lake Mille Lacs is huge btw).  Love catching Pike, Crappie, and Catfish.  Just don't have enough time to fish or hunt as much as I'd like too  :crybaby2:.

Took the father-in-law to San Carlos 2 years ago.  He's fished primarily Northerns for 50 years and nearly yanked the first crappie that bit half way to Tucson (slight learning curve for him).  But seeing him catch a 17" crappie was priceless.

My name is Shea Meyer, 26 yo AZ native. I met Piscolli back at BPS a couple years ago where I learned about the association. I have recently joined and started reading the forums as fishing season for me is in full swing starting in March. Waterfowl and big game occupy months August - January.  :violent-smiley-007:

I have been fishing since I was big enough to cast rod. I have spend most of my time on the valley lakes and rivers. My primary fishing water is Roosevelt Lake. I fish crappie 75% of the time, with the remainder going to walleye and largemouth by accident. 

I'm in a camoflage-wrapped aluminum bass tracker with a minn kota bow mount. My 2 favorite fishing partners are my girlfriend and my black lab. I'm never afraid to tell you what's working for me. I'm constantly trying new rigs, colors and tactics. Have to love these AZ crappies. I have caught several fish in the 2.5 lb range but I'm still waiting on that 3 pounder for the wall.

Looking forward to attending the next meeting. From what I read, you all seem to be a great people. See you out there!
Have a Crappie Day :thumbsup:
