Fantastic first day at a new lake, every other day not even a bite

Thanks buddy! That was the first one I got since I was a kid, I was pretty stoked. A lot if them were decent size, here's one compared to my big melon for scale.

As of now I just want to target crappie until I figure it out enough to move on to the next species. Earlier this spring the target was rainbow trout. As of now that's all my tackle is set up with. I pack light and keep all my stuff in a soft box the size of a lunchbox so I dont have to lug full size gear down the trails.

But I might look into some small additions for bass while I'm out there. I take a heavier zebco along with a light spinning reel so it couldnt hurt to have one set up for each. Thanks for the advice bud!
