One of the first slabs I landed using a 1/16 oz. curly tail jig
Quite possibly the largest crappie I have ever landed using the 7 1/2 ft. micro light rod with 4 lb test line. The curly tail jig was a smoke glitter, with a red jig head tapped with a white crappie nibblet that nailed this big female. She measured 13 1/2" long with a 5 3/4" body width---just an awesome catch.
I don't have to tell some you how good these thing are when fried or baked. I told Mike who was fishing with me today that we may never catch this many carppie again in one place on this lake. As a matter of fact you might say that this catch today was truly by accident---but that is what fishing so interesting to me, you never know what you are going to encourter when the hit the water. That is why I love it so.
