    Looks like I wasn't the only one tying this evening. I was tying for a little clearer water working on a few experiment white jigs.

    Haha, that happens. Mine generally disappear on the water when someone else needs one.

    Yep the last batch of factory marabous in the pattern I'm tying I had to split with my partner on a trip to Mississippi couple years back ... when he got about 8 fish behind he was " hay got any more of those ? "

    I stand corrected, but again, no power eggs. ;)

    A good jerkbat bite for trout is my favorite. We've caught several of our better quality fish this winter on jerkbaits even though there hasn't been much flow. They were a dud for us the winter before. May was good for them too, but the water was also at flood levels.

    Crappie fishing is more about finding the fish than the presentation to catch them. Typically, they will eat just about anything you toss in front of them when you find a school of them. Occasionally they can they be finicky, but not very often. I got my butt handed to me by them last year about this time on LoZ. I found several mega schools under docks with my side imaging and still fell a few short of a limit.

    I used Finn coon on those. Plateau showed it to me years ago, and I've tied a lot with it since. It has really good action in the water.

    White head, red wrap, white body with a red stripe. This has worked well in MN.
