Clinton – 3/10

Monday afternoon was the first opportunity I’ve had to get out on Clinton since the ice has melted and it was even T-shirt weather to boot.  I drug my bass fishin’ buddy, Matt W. along with me to experience some winter time crappie fishing.  I think he may be hooked after the day we had.  I went to the only GPS point I had marked on the main river channel, dropped a marker buoy and we proceeded to hammer them all afternoon.  They were biting so well, we could afford to be selective about the ones we kept and in just a few hours had our 40 fish limit of 12+” crappie.

On top of that, the big white bass and wipers must have also been hungry and we landed quite a number of those too.  All of the fish were caught in the same vicinity and you never knew whether each bite was going to be a crappie, white bass, or wiper.

This is a short post, but the trip will live long in the memory bank ranking as one of the best outings I’ve ever experienced!!!
