I have been out on a local pond trying to get into the crappie and tonight it finally happened! I was out for about 2 hours didnt see anything for the first hour and a half than all hell broke loose non stop action for the last half hour. Ended up with 12 crappie 10-15", 2 channel catfish, and 2 small carp. My phone died out after the first few pictures but I will post them on this if I figure it out. I was fishing in 8 foot of water with white tear drop jig with a waxworm most were right off the bottom!

Nice job its always good when a plan comes through. Keep track of the time the fish were on and try fishing around the same time next time out you may be on them soonier. It seems the cycle starts with the full moon then again with the new moon which I think we are 2 days past. the time seems to move from 5 to about 15 minutes later a night. I,m sure others will have some input about moon phashes and feeding habits of fish. Good Luck Hope you catch them again and can follow them.

Nice going! Based on your name and where I live, I have a couple of ideas where you fished. If you ever want to hook up, let me know. I live just north of Meacham Grove, but I doubt that's where you fished.....

Local lake in Schaumburg that holds 15" Crappies intersting but I dont think this local lake is in Schamburg. I bet it's Meachem. I have caught crappies up to 14" in there.

Its not meachem. I have actually seen crappies up to 17" come out of this lake and saw a dead one on land two summers ago that measure just over 18" there are some slaps in this pond. Looking forward to getting back out there and fishing it again sometime soon hopefully can get into them again! And I would be interested in fishing with some of you guys just PM me

Yep! Good post- nice fish. Maybe you need the 10 post to also post pictures? Otherwise, did you go to the "New Image Hosting" tab on the top of the menu?

I see you just joined yesterday. There might be a time restriction before you can PM, a couple days or something. I'll PM a moderator and see if they can justify what's going on.
