Haven`t been able to speak with Matt of Lawn Masters on Old Columbus Rd just off Croft to ask him if we could "stockpile' the assembled 1s there until right before the drop. Plus he was helpful with donated cedar and "C" trees last yr. Did I mention he fishes CJ abit and apparently scored some success on the cover a couple of yrs in a row during the spring. Having him "on board" would be a major "force multiplyer"...
It's getting Tee Shirt weather now so don't forget to purchase your shirt availble at Mac Ray on Eagle City Road. If you assisted in the past splaches and/or intend to assist in future splases, there is a "Friends of CJ" . If you are a member of OGF, there is a "Wolfpack" . I got a combination. There is also available Placards for the Truck/Boat. Show your pride of "Mother CJ". Wear your colors poud. Can't quote any prices because I don't remember. I do remember the official color is blue. Must be an age thing.
Boy, did I speak too soon or what ??? It's almost time.
So, how are everyone's projects coming along??
Any new ideas for cover that anyone is trying?
I have a couple more PVC, 2x4, and 2x2 "Trees" to make (found some 4' poplar 2x4's and 2x2's) and a couple more Milk Crate "Minnow condos"...then I'll be ready for July 28th!!
GOOD BUILDING TO ALL!
Then GOOD FISHING TO ALL!
WHAT !! I have a TAB ? I would yell something stupid like "FREE BAIT for EVERYONE this wkend !" but you`d likely take me upon it...(luckily a FEW of you use only artificals and eat only "Long John Silver`s" fillets.) Looking "iffy" at the moment for Friday and Sat...
An interesting article to read at Crappie.com> Forum> Crappie Cover and Lake Structure> Comparision of natural cover, bamboo and PVC attractors. Doesn`t go into great detail, but seems to confirm my own personal theories as far as using the very "hard' woods...locust, osage orange, ash, hickory, cedar, ect. A VERY GOOD web site...
