    If your Old School... you probably watched Saturday morning cartoons with your Frosted Flakes.

    Those still with me...

    Remember School House Rock? 3 is the magic number (youtube it) lol

    In this case I've been chasing a 3 pound crappie for the 20 years or so I've fished for them here in SD. Come close a few time... a couple of 2.95lb

    Well, I heard what went down on Wed. and Sat thanks to Larry (Blackcloud)

    Had to go...

    I didn't check the weather. I think its good I didn't. I probably would had called it off if I had seen raining coming.

    No Dave and his nice comfy boat. He is outta town for a while unfortunately. Had to go back to my roots... the rental. With that I dragged my old fishing partna Maurice out of the wood works. We haven't fished together in over 8 years.

    Off we went... Looking for that elusive school...

    IMG_20200209_085611094.jpg

    I got a double off the bat. Maybe 10 min into the troll... Then Maurice got hit... HARD! After a long battle that lasted way too long I net this Monster for him!

    Look at it closely peeps.... a 3.5 lb crappie

    IMG_20200209_073855256 (1).jpg

    Kept circling around going thru that same school and guess what? 2 more over 3. A 3.17lb and 3.27lbs for me.

    IMG_20200209_090315607.jpg

    So after all this time trying... 3, 3lbs in 1 day CRAZY!

    Neither of us was ready for the weather and we got soaked. Only fished to 10:30 or so as the wind picked up and the off and on showers turned to rain.

    We still manage 5 slabs ea.

    But 3 is a magic number!!!

    You use to say to me back in the day’s that Hodges was the lake
    That was going to give you that
    3 plus pounder!!!

    With all that shad we were seeing last year these fish are really healthy!!!

    The duo’s struck again,,
    Maurice is the Lucky
    Charm!!!☘️

    No heavy rain with heavy run off for awhile, these lakes
    Are setting in really fast!!!!
