    Tell you what because you didn't like my humor. Post any picture of an Crappie with the Aqueduct in the background. I'll send you a $25 gift certificate of your choice.

    Kwin,

    Not to try and steal this post but, didn't I seen something on the internet about you were going to move up to northern Cal? Just curious, we'd hate to lose you in So. Cal!

    Erik. I actually did catch a Tule Perch at Silverwood Lake one time. It was about 7 inches, and looked like some kind of sunfish to me initially. I went back and figured out that it was a Tule Perch by doing some online searches, and a huge and very attractive one with a purplish color. I have a photo of it somewhere. I caught it from the docks but not too far from shore on a redworm, so my advice to you would be to use redworms near shore to have the best chance of catching Tule Perch. They might like flies too but I am not really sure.

    Docks at Silverwood is a fine place to catch a decent crappie, or Green Valley lake is loaded with smaller ones, you are welcome Etucker.

    Didn't know about the Tule Perch. Cool!

    Anyone with experience targeting them at Lake Gregory? Locations to focus on? Tactics? I'd imagine sunfish bait/tackle would work. It's a species I've never caught before, would like to add it to the list.

    Some neat videos footage and info here: http://calfish.ucdavis.edu/species/?uid=105&ds=241

    Carpanglerdude, I have not caught any at Lake Gregory, but I would try Catfish Cove not too far from shore using redworms for Tule Perch. That's where I usually catch Crappie, Bluegill, or Pumpkinseeds at Gregory, but the Crappie are normally on jigs.

    I agree about the Silverwood docks being a good place to catch Crappie. It's very deep there and lots of fish are usually around, sometimes including schools of Crappie.
