    I agree!
    Can’t get any better, but the next closest thing is eating those tasty fish!
    I love walleye and perch plus other species, but bluegill are my favorite, hands down!
    That looks like a lotta cleaning!

    Headed out today. Heard they are getting on the perch out of Grand Haven, but I'm sticking inland today.

    What does "less than 40 days represent"? National Crappie Day? Bluegill Month?

    Hopefully when the gills start to really get active...but things may be even earlier. :)

    I always consider 420 As national crappie day , Take it off and go fishing ever year put the smack On them. I know with this warm weather shallower lakes are gonna go quick, I have one that is super shallow with shallow canals crapy start moving up in there as soon as ice is gone, Not to spawn but to gorge on minnows. Get out and get you Some, Can't catch them on the couch

    Don't know what you're talking about Paul. They've been really active for the past few months :) I'd post pics but it might induce anxiety.....
