sounds like a plan to me, although I usually catch'm 5-7 ft. I'm sure some of the AZCA guys will chime in and set you straight.
Dude I don't know shit about the crappie, but I can put you on alot of bass/ which should be fun for you and your family...Thinking about heading up to Rosey Sat night, primarily targeting Crappie, which I have never fished for before. I will be aboard a 25' pocket cruiser type boat with no trolling motor.
My plan was basically to find some submerged trees in around 40 feet of water (maybe near the mouth of a cove?), drop the anchor, drop the green light, and fish with a 2 hook rig consisting of a jig head with a gulp type minnow on the bottom and a snell a couple of feet up with a live minnow - all of this under a bobber about 12 feet down, fished on the outside edge of the lights.
Am I at all close?
Open to suggestions. I was thinking I would let one set of bait soak while I toss some TR worms or something for bass.
Also I have no crappie gear at all - any suggestions for lures/jig head sizing/jigs for rosey @ night would be appreciated!
