That's some good eating there.  What were they biting and how deep?

Just to help "BB" out a bit with propper English.

Lesson 1. If we said that we'd had a day of crappy (note spelling) fishing it would mean a really bad day with little or nothing to show for it.

Lesson 2...................................

Thats a fantastic haul Von. Although on my visits to see you we caught a few of them, we never really got stuck into them like that. I'm envious.

I have to admit --------this year the fishing has been really CRAPPY! Winter stayed late and now its warming fast . We hooked into the Perch well on only two occasions and a couple on crappie . The bullhead fishing has been poor at best . I'll be back slaving full time soon so my fishing will be very limited .

I guess if you just catch one or two in a day their called Crappy but if you make a good haul you should call them Calico Bass.

Crappy are real finicky here.  They either bite or they don't.  If they are biting then you fill the cooler but when they aren't you'd swear their lips were sewn shut.

all the fish up this way have been that way this year . Zebra mussels are the culprit on the big lakes . While perch fishing a couple of weeks ago you could see the schools of perch ------------40 feet down on a calm day . As soon as the wind would kick up -----they'd bite .

I am intrigued; please do tell more.

Are the rubbers just supported statically by the float? or do you use the the float to set the depth and then work the rubber in a sort of a reverse drop shot method?

Pictures of the rig/set up please.
