Launched about 7:30 pm
Went up Aqua fria where we had previously seen a couple boats with lighjts floating -- figured they were probably on crappie -- they looked like crappie fishermen, had lights like crappie fishermen,
Graphed quite a few fish at about 30 feet in 80-90 feet of water -- some down to about 75 feet didn't "feel" like crappie but hope springs eternal
Put lights out and soon had lots of zoo plankton , then larvals, then lots of fish on the graph
Graph showing hundreds of fish from 25 -80 feet down (maybe thousands
) tried to post pic here of graph but don't think it worked
I was suspicious, but hopeful that we had parked over the crappie convention of north america!
My son said something like "Holy sheep squat!" "lets get lines in the water!"
a zillion fish, all about 1 to 1.5 lbs. Not one of them a crappie
They were all ................... something else ................
Pulled anchor about 11:30 pm and had a pleasant ride back to the dock on flat water.
Nice evening on the water with my son
