Managed to hit the lower Kank for a couple of hours today. Threw a Zara Spook Jr. with the solid overcast. Managed a few nice specimens, the largest in at 17". Hook up rate was right at about 50%. Saw a few crawfish in the shallows, but few in numbers compared to years past. USGS at Wilmington at 1.38 ft and water temp at 80. Good clarity. Only other fisherpersons out were a couple of blue herons.

Yea, i do well with Cripple Killers in Northern Wis. Haven't had much success with them on the Kank. though. Rather puzzling. Check out NDYakangler on youtube if you want to see Zara Spooks really work their magic. Of course, he's on a fishery most of us can only dream about.

Thanks for the reply and be careful out there.
