Alright!! Good man!! Amen on the Colts - you definitely took the better course of action. When I was younger I could take the cold better, but now I need at least 50-55 deg. Won't be long. I've been trying to learn more about crappie - been all over the web asking and learning. I pretty much came up with your pattern as the place to look in 30-40 deg. water. Brush around the deep channel, that and marinas. So I feel not just happy for you, but a little more confident myself. One question: were you tightlining hooks or tipped jigs? Good luck next time.
