Finally got out and caught fish

I got out for a few hours at the luther Dell fall Retreat, when Dan Pilla invited me to go out in his boat on Boy lake Saturday. They started off fishing pike and I was just going to relax and take some pictures, when one of the guys started catching nice perch on a rapala.
Soon I grabbed my crappie rod rigged up with a SDI eye candy jig 1/32 oz with a two inch power minnow, and started working the shallow weeds. It was a sight fishing bite with many fish hitting near the boat.
We had some fun with that, til I saw another boat getting some bluegills near reeds. I moved us over to some reeds and one of the guys rigged up with a bobber and leech pulled in a big one near 10 inches. Soon we all were flinging leeches at them and we got a good mess of gills from eight to 10 inches!
