Notes

First trip to this pond. Due to the miniature beach on the home side and the huge number of crappie caught we've dubbed it "Crappie Beach"

Best fish: Bass 19.5" caught by the beach area. Pretty sharp drop off by the beach with a vegetation patch by the edge. Both sides of the beach were productive.

Crappie were taken on a plastic grub on a jig approx 1.5' from a bobber. 30 is an approx. We quit counting

The only signs of active baitfish was on the North West corner before the submerged tree section. the submerged tree section appeared to be shallow and no fish activity was seen.

Barometer rose from 30 to 30.2 but held steady beyond that
