Great job on the bluegill and sexy shad Mark! Those look like bass killers!

Thanks Gary. I hope you're right.
I caught a 7lb bass on a homemade crank in the crappie pattern this year, and lots of smaller ones, too.
Before the shad move shallow in the spring, and during the summer, the bass out here feed on sculpin, crappie, bluegill, and crawdads.
When they're on the shad, it's hard to get bit on anything else, but there are lots of times when they eat other stuff, and small crappie are on their menu, too.
Sometimes I wonder if my crappie, which are pearl white with a green back and shoulder mist, and then metallic gold mist over that, might look like baby bass, too.
