Upper 70's and sunny today, so I picked up a dozen crappie minnows and went to the river. Caught 7 or 8 nice crappie and one white bass. and... and... and... a 6 1/2 lb. largemouth bass on a #4 hook and a 2 in. long crappie minnow. About 20 minutes playing it in with 8 lb. test line on a zebco 33 rod and reel.
