Ice Fishin' Crappie

Crappie


Perry Focht

Blandon  Pennsylvania

While ice fishing on Lake Ontelaunee with a large minnow under a tip up, the flag went.

As I approached the tip up, the spool stopped spinning. I slowly lifted the tip up out of the hole, when the line began peeling off of the spool. I set the hook and brought in a 15.5 inch Crappie. I was pleasantly surprised. Another great day of ice fishing!!!
