A plethora of lures

KONICA MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAIt’s been pretty well documented – crappie fishing is cranking up a bit late this year on Lake D’Arbonne and other area lakes. Unlike hunting, fishing doesn’t go by a certain season. We can show up to “play” anytime we want, but the game isn’t on until the fish show up with the ball. Know what I mean? A few good catches are starting to show up. Getting fishermen to share what they catch them on isn’t real easy, though.

One thing’s for sure. Crappie fisherman have a plethora of lures to choose from. They come in every shape, size, color, action…etc. that you can imagine. In fact, today’s most popular little crappie lures are plastic tails that come in a rainbow of colors (see above — and that’s just a small sample).

Or course, you can go old school and buy a bucket of shiners. The only difference from the old days is that today, the shiners cost more than the bucket. Remember when shiners cost two cents apiece? No more. Today’s average daily retail price for a pound of shiners? $14!!!!

And you thought ribeye steak was expensive.
