    Both, depends on the depth on where the fish are located and how finicky they are. Its definitely a good strategy for picky eaters.

    Since most of the live bait presentations have been mentioned I'll spill my favorite artificial tricks for crappie. Jointed rapalas trolled seem to have a magic touch for paper mouths. Also another killer presentation is a Trout Magnet fished under a float. Just give the float little pops here and there to make that Magnet dance.

    I went out this Saturday and took a six pack with me. I used slip bobbers with a 1/32 jig tipped with a worm. I was only able to drink 1 beer cause I was murdering fish in about 8-10 FOW. Some bass but a ton of gills. It was insane

    Loving this more and more! I can’t stop. Having a good fish fry tonight. Here is a pic of yesterday’s take in about 1 hour. Only again able to drink 1 beer cause they hit the jig constantly.

    Do you need some help?? (w/ the fish) and that would let you do more beer but be careful the fish cops will do DUI.

    I see a new thread in your future....... Giving advice rather than asking for it. Nice fish!

    Kids now are asking to fish every day and have a fish fry. I thank you gents for your advice and comments. This last weekend was truly heart warming. Ive taken them on hunts with me but at this age I think fishing has been better, especially cause they can do it themselves.

    The smiles on their faces are the reason why this website is phenomenal! Thanks again gents!
