Geez,

I can't believe it's been months since the last post on this board.

Oh well, 360 Tuna - what do you expect. Anyway, spawn's over from what I can tell here on Lake Conroe. Fish are being caught on 15 -20 foot brushpiles now with best success on bass assasin jigs.

Not many crappie fishermen on this 360 forum. Mainly offshore guys. To be honest, I haven't fresh water fished in over twenty five years.

how ironic. as i played golf yesterday there was about 10 guys and kids fishing the ponds on the course. they were catching spawning black bass. all i could think about is what nice offshore baits those size bass would make....lol....i have almost as much freshwater gear as offshore but all it has done for the last 10 years is gather dust. i much prefer the thrill of catching something that thinks it is catching me.....rick

There is something wrong with you. Snook, grouper, dolphin and trigger are hands down better table fare IMHO.

Hi Rick, It's been a while since we've talked. I've been keeping David and Ron out of trouble. Also got to visit with Brenda a while when her mother came down from Fla. Those guys just about hung it up when the Big-E rates went through the roof. Lot's of Tiagras and Stellas gathering dust. I tried to talk them into a trip to Venice about the same time you and Gres were there, but they wouldn't go for it.

Golfing huh - good to see you have other addictions. McGolfer (duh on my part).

I will be heading to Sam Rayburn to do some crappie fishing the first of May and June! I love catching some big ol' Sac-au-lait on ultra like tackle.

See, I figured I could stir something up. Grouper fingers maybe close second to "white perch". None of the others in the same class!

I love grilled Mahi. Hell, I can't think of many fish I don't like except for Jack Crevalle maybe - I've never tried hardhead.

Dale

You mean you don't like grilled Mahi Mahi?

Okay, this may be risky but I'll try to splain, Lucy

Chevy/Ford
Golf/Football
Shimano/Accurate
Brunette/Blonde
Scotch/Rye
Palin/Obama
Ribeye/NYStrip
Crappie/Mahi for eating - not catching

Most of my preferences line up with the left side.

Dale

And you think crappie are better? I don't see it.

Well, it's still lonely, but the crappie are still here (Lake Conroe). Caught about 15 pretty good ones last week on deep water brush piles. Caught some really good bream too. "Freshwater grouper - too bad they don't grow to 20 -30 lbs.

What do you folks use for baits for crappie and perch? I'm heading up to Ohio next week and will have a chance to fish Lake Erie. I don't think my Stella 18000SW with 80# braid will be the trick, but I've got a little rod and spinner for 1/4-3/4 oz lures. I haven't fished fresh water since I was 8 y.o.... 52 years ago. My guess is things have changed since then.... Bring me up to speed! many thanks. butch
