The Walleye Opener on Lake Miltona was a huge success - and not for the reason you might think! The Crappie fishing was amazing! The Peterson Guys took the new Pontoon Boat out for the afternoon and came back with a 40+ Crappie 12-14 inches. Jeff said it was the best fishing they had ever experienced!
The Poor Group and the Beardsley guys got plenty of action as well, with everyone catching thier limit of the huge slab Crappie.
Spring time crappie fishing on Miltona can be outstanding and we are in it right now! Focus on the northern bays with pencil reeds and cat tails, use Twister Tails, Flu Flu's and Mop Tops, all tipped with a minnow.
Of course we had rain yesterday - it is a tradition to have foul weather for the opener, however, the sun is out this morning and it looks like a nice day... now I just need to convince Michelle that it will be a nice Mothers Day event, if we try a little Crappie fishing ourselves, this afternoon!
