After a wet and rainy Thursday the evening turned out beautiful. The crappies have been biting and they seem to be on the bigger size this year with some in the fish house 13"-14". Water temps have also been warming up and it looks close to the start of the bluegill bite. hope to see you at Aspen Resort soon!

Scott Bernicky and his dad Jerry had a good day catching some nice slab crappies. The largest one in the basket was this 14 1/4 inch. That's going be a nice dinner.
