May was a fantastic month for fishing. “Me and Chris Drysdale hit Lake Acworth,” and many an angler took advantage of it in between the down pours every single weekend in May. The weather is hot and the water temperatures were 73-75 and the moon is waning, rising up in the sky late at night. “We only fished three hours and managed to boat 14 and Chris 10 keepers,” explains CrappieMan.
CrappieMan, a fishing guide, runs Albrights Guide Fishing, (Note, see the fat link to Atlanta Fishing Examiner, thanks CrappieMan, you’re the man) has been busy with his grand kids and baseball and he is sporting a new article in the May issue of Georgia Outdoor Magazine for those of you who’d like to follow up.
Night trips will be starting soon, six booked already
“This is a great time to put some lights out, bait will come, and then the crappie will soon follow.”
Sweet talking the crappie
“I covered most of the lake today. There are four docks on the lake maybe three feet wide and six feet long, and one dock where you put your boat in, four feet by maybe sixteen in three feet of water.”
Man that silver tongue gets ‘em all the time,
A few things from Chris Williams:
1.“I really felt like a wuss when I showed up, and wore a jacket until around nine-ish while Jeff shows up in short pants and a sleeveless shirt. He also got into the water to launch the boat. Well I just don’t do cold.”
2.“Okay, okay I missed a couple. All the rods I used are still on the boat.” CrappieMan clarifies, “Some of you are probably wondering what Chris is talking about. One of my rods is on the bottom of Lake Acworth. It got hung up on the bottom or on one of those monster crappie in there and snatched it right out of the rod holder. Not the first one I have lost.”
3.“As always I had a blast fishing with your Jeff. Breakfast for the in-laws tomorrow and compliments of Crappie Man.
4.“The Jiffy Jigs and Sliders, in all colors, worked great.”
