Mazonia: Topwater crappie

So I am playing around at the Mazonia lakes yesterday afternoon.

And it was as every bit as perfect as I would have expected a cloudy early May afternoon to be.

Late afternoon, some fish started busting the surface, so I tied on a Skitter Pop.

First cast, boom, caught a crappie.

And I am not talking some monster 15- or 16-inch crappie, just a regular northern Illinois 9-incher.

I don’t think I ever had that happen before.
