A last minute decision to give the crappies on "LAKE DV" proved to be bang on ..

Arrived at DV mid afternoon , not encoraging, water temps were off the charts and the visibility was the pits due to a full bloom ..

Tried my usual presentation , small float, 4' to small jig , cast, twitch,twitch ..half hour ..Zilch

Changed offering, set float at 12" and did a slow steady retrieve .. Bang on .. I had set a no release rule today due to water temps , So... Kept first 30 fish landed , some small and some real slabs , lost many more due to short strikes and I think tearing of the thin membrane on the mouths ..

I'm a firm believer in changing your tactics if you are confident the fish are there ..switch,switch until it works ..

That's it until the fall, ...now time to chase lakers off Collingwood and then on to "Kings" in August

Ain't retirement great ..

Dave

Pix to follow ..I hope
