Wifey and I and our soon-to-be three year old grandson hit the breakfast buffet at Piccadilly,saw four of my fellow Abita KC members there as well,and we got de ole SouthFork launched round de crack of 10:15,had exactly one parking slot left at 4th Street Launch off Jancke and guess folks either participating in bass tourney or seeking delicious T-Funky slabs,like us!!Water was a tad cold,muddy and guess the sac a lait are awaiting higher temps(water hovered around 55.6)and clearer water and we emerged with exactly one sac a lait to prevent a skunking!!!I tried plenty of likely spots and managed to put de solo sac on ice,coming from an area where last year I caught bunch of slabs,up to 1.75 lbs(digital scale)and I NEVER use bait,just use soft plastics tipped with Crappie Psychic trailers and Berkley Crappie Nibbles,great combo.Did see fine pair of Canada geese,first I have seen in quite some time.Wifey celebrating 59th birthday tomorrow and we headed to Middendorf's in Manchac for supper and might pick up some lobsters locally for tomorrow!!!Gonna just be matter of time before dem slabs move to shallows,dey extremely easy to target once water warms a tad!!!
