How unusual is this?  A  river guide caught a crappie! Nice catch, nice day.

Launched at Holiday Island Marina around 8 AM and found that the 'clouds' of whites that were there the previous day had packed up and moved back up into Missouri. There were a few whites here and there where we found bait balls, but they had scattered for the morning. Also marked some walleye down deep. Water temperature at Holiday Island was 54 degrees F. (There are walleye being caught about a mile downstream from Houseman Access in the early morning or late evening.) Figured that the whites would feed later in the afternoon, but we decided to go fish for trout. Moved to the Hwy 62 bridge and had a lot of fun casting gold spoons for those critters. Saw several boats out and about and a few were catching those rainbows either on bait or on lures. You can see in the photo that one of our guides had an unusual catch. River guides don't see many crappie! Today the generation was from 8 through 11 AM at 44% for the first and last hour and 88% for 9 and 10. The day should be cloudy with winds from the E or ENE at around 7 MPH. Rain is predicted to begin in the later afternoon. High temperature today is expected to reach 56 degrees F. Tomorrow, generation is scheduled from 8 to 11 AM at 88% capacity. Get out there and have fun!
