Fished Normandy on sunday, 4/15. Windy. Very windy, which put a bit of a damper on my intended crappie strategy, so I improvised. Trolled around, and got a nice kentucky bass. I finally found a good calm cove with some decent structure, and was marking a lot of fish suspended at 6-14 feet. I put some big tuffies down and had a heck of a time getting some solid crappie on the line, and burned through about 2 dozen in about an hour, with only one small crappie to show for it. Figured out why I was having such a difficult time getting the crappie hooked after an interesting catch on a JSR5 shad rap: Yellow Perch. Explains everything!!! I had always heard they were in there, but I had never caught one there. Hadn't caught one of those since my last Caldewood trip! I think I know exactly what I am going after next time I go...Crappie are darn good, but yellow perch taste even better.
Your worst day of fishing sure beats a great day at the office. - -unknown author
