Crappie normally start staging near the creek in October, so I usually go out a few days. Found several crappie in four feet of water near a creek channel. Found the fish for five days, then they were gone.
Not much fishing done. I caught a big crappie jigging stumps. Then the weather changed on me. Clouds moved in quickly, and rain poured down. I got soaked and had to tie the yak to the trailer and move around to the parking area until the rain stopped.
I was prepared to leave at 11am, but after checking the radar and seeing that it was clear I decided to stay another hour. Fifteen minutes later the clouds and rain moved in. I don’t know where it came from. If I would have started to leave five minutes earlier, I could have made it to the car without getting wet.
