Things change. The one thing that never changes is well, more change. For example, how we used to fish. Cane poles rigged with a gold colored hook were the norm. We fished in earnest for two or three months and then moved on to bass.
Now we fish for crappie year-round. Our cane poles are state-of-the-art, graphite poles. Driftmaster™ pole holders secure them in place. Any crappie angler worth his salt will only use Blood Red™ hooks nowadays.Everything changes.
As kids, we used to peruse outdoor magazines as mom shopped, hoping for a crappie article to read. Now we just go to our laptop or tablet and download Crappie NOW. We can even join the forum at Crappie.com and make crappie friends.
The 53-year-old Road Runner Lure has changed. Some have prism eyes, needlepoint hooks, and a willow blade.
When it comes to crappie, change is good. No, change is great!
