I took my friend Ben and his friend Bethany up to the lake today. It was kind of a squeeze in my screaming<BR> 14 foot john boat =) but we cruised over to Murphy's bay to try for some trout around 2pm. The trout<BR> fishing was kind of off, with some shore guys getting a few. Bethany caught her first fish ever (a bluegill)<BR> which was cool but that was all for that spot. Next we tried white oak for trout or bass or whatever but it<BR> was slow. Finally, acting on a tip from Dean at Angler's Outpost we headed up to the narrows to try for some<BR> crappie. It was a good tip because we started catching them right away one 1" white grubs. In the next two<BR> hours or so we caught about 15 crappie and a couple bluegill keeping three crappie for the bbq. It was a lot<BR> of fun on 2lb test and saved what was otherwise a slow day. Look for 12-14 feet of water up by the buoy<BR> line and you should find some crappie.
