Nature Notes Outdoor notes on fishing, hunting and bird watching.
Sometimes, crappie turn finicky and only taste jigs. The angler may never even know that a strike occurred. When that happens, add a little incentive. Add a crappie nibble, a tiny bit of pellet bait, to the jig hook. These look like miniature marshmallows and come in various colors. They dissolve slowly in the water, giving off scent and flavor.
Not the best start to our weekend as cloudy skies and a few rain showers return to the forecast for Saturday. Do expect only a few showers today, certainly will not be a washout. High temps today will get into the upper 50s. By tonight, showers are again possible with lows in the mid 40s.
