Great report! Love to hear about catching nice fish on Ultralight gear.....the only way that I fish. Drop shot? If so, how much weight did you use? I tend to just use a Bobber to keep the weight out of the equation but am willing to use some weight to catch fish like these....great day!

it was perfect conditions for drifting light crappie jigs behind the boat...just put out 25-30 feet of line and let the wind and waves provide all the action...no reeling, trolling, or even jigging necessary. the key is to find a stretch of water where the wind blows you parallel to the shore allowing you to stay in the same depth / strike zone for as long as possible before needing to fire up the motor to make another pass.

great looking crappie. I live in moses lake. is that lake Washington you fishing?? what boat launch do you use?

yup, lake washington...but i prefer the fishing at potholes in your neck of the woods. i have private water access through a friend on lake washington, but if i use public launches it's either gene coulon if i want to fish south and marina park in dt kirkland if i plan to fish the north.

i'm trying! she's only 1 yr 9mo so doesn't have much patience and i haven't put a real hook on her rod yet, but she already knows how to push the button to release the line and reel the "fish" (rapala w/ trebles removed) back in by herself...getting her to cast is next, hahaha.
