Charlie and I were lucky enough to get a chance to travel to Crescent City
Florida and fish for 12 days.
We found a large number of fish in the
canals leading to the St Johns River. We took minnows with us because this is what they were using as well as a small
jig. Charlie decided to try his "old standard and favorite" Bobby GarlandELECTRIC CHICKENand
found it to keep him very busy taking fish off the hook! It is more common to see men drift fishing with minnows and
bobbers than jig fishing. He enjoys the feel of the tug from the fish so he wanted to see first if he would be successful
with jig fishing. The last day of our trip we caught 170 crappie before having to leave the water at 3:30. Not
Bad for 3 poles in the water!
The fish coloring is unusual, I guess
due to the brackish water. Check out the link to a video I posted here on this page.
