1.6 lb. Black Crappie caught by Mike  Phillips fishing in Shelburne Pond in Vermont on 02/10/07
14.0" / 1.6 lb. Black Crappie caught by Mike Phillips fishing on Saturday February 10, 2007 at 20:00 in Shelburne Pond near Shelburne in Chittenden County, Vermont (VT), United States North America using a Handmade willow painted red glow pearl sparkle a Jigging Spoon

A group of friends and I were actually out fishing for yellow perch on the ice in mid February when the hour started getting late. I have had prior luck with early evening crappie in this particular pond, so I moved off to a rocky sloped shoreline where these fish come up in the evening to feed. I drilled a hole, set up my shanty then tied on one of my handmade willow spoons and tipped it with a few spikes (maggots). I make these jiggin' spoons with epoxy so they are "extra light" for their size and they fall with a nice slow flutter. Well wouldn't you know the jig never made it to the bottom before this honker latched on to it!
That's always nice way to end up your day of fishin' !

HI MIKE,
THIS IS A NICE STORY AND NOTHING GIVES YOU
MORE SATISFACTION THAN USING A HOMEMADE RIG,
LOOKING FOEWARD TO MORE STORIES LIKE THIS.
