Crappie Basics: Fishing in the Rain
by Richard Simms, CrappieNOW Editor
It is an absolutely picture-perfect day – blue skies, calm winds and mild temperatures. No doubt on such days some of your friends or family have said, “Man, it sure would be great to be out there fishing today.”
And sure, any day is a great day to be fishing – but NOT necessarily when there are blue skies, calm winds and mild temperatures.
CrappieNOW Columnist Terry Madewell explains why, on rainy days, there may be pretty girls still waiting on him to pick them up for a date.
