*Sac-a-lait, Hubbard Creek Lake, Breckenridge, Texas
Sunrise 7:32 AM, sunset 5:32 PM CST, 30 degrees, warming to 56, dew point 30, humidity 89%, wind speed 4 mph (NW) with gust speed of 20 mph. Water temperature 42 warming to 47 degrees.
Deep into the creek, we finally found our crappie fun spot using red/chartreuse & red/white tubes in about 5-7 feet of murky water...it was like every cast made came back with a tug and wow...before we knew it we had caught about 80 crappie...granted, only about 8 were keepers, but the fun was definitely there!

*In South Louisiana crappie are called Sac-a-lait (sok-a-lay) which comes from the fine eating flesh of the fish, it is French for sack of milk. Crappie are members of the sunfish family.
