The crappie fishing on Grand is not too bad now.

Fred Malone has a place close to Horse Creek and he told me that he caught about 40 with 15 keepers the other day from his boat dock.

I am beginning to think that ol' Mother Nature has taken care of our crappie problem of the last few years.

I also have heard good reports from Elk River.

The black bass fishing is still fair with the clearer area the best. It would be hard to throw a better bait than a jig.

Elk River jigs are made on the lake and are really a quality product. I think you can find them in just about all the tackle stores on the lake.

It is getting close to Christmas and I want to remind you about the guide trip gift certificates that we offer for those fishermen in your family.

Good fishing!
