Details:well i had heard that the crappie were biting really good at kirwin reservoir on Thursday the 14th. well with my curiosity i had to give it a try so i went out with my wife, daughter, and our dog on Friday the 15th. well it is a about an hour and a half drive so i was hoping the fishing would be good. well we got up to kirwin at about 12:30 and i had not been to this lake in like 30 years so it was nice to see the lake again. Just like all lakes in kansas the water levels were low and so were the boat ramps, it was no fun launching or loading the boat. but anyway we got the boat on the water and i knew where to go because i was told to fish the south side by the fish attractors. well we get into position around about 12 other boats and i drop anchor, well after getting the family situated i finally got to fish. I tie on a jig head with a green/chartruese curly tail and start jigging. well i did this for about 2 hours without any luck, i didn't feel too bad because not too many others out there were doing real well either, they were all groaning and moaning because the day before the fish were biting non stop. well after awhile i decided to pull anchor and cruise to shore to use the restroom. We then went over to the north shore attractor and fished it but all i managed to catch over there was my anchor line. so i cruised over to where we started the day and decided to fish it again for about an hour before it would then be time to go home. i fished for about half an hour without any luck so i decided to change things up a bit, i tipped my jig with some white crappie nibbles and decided to drop my jig all the way to the bottom. well as soon as my jig got to the bottom i felt a tug, it was a nice crappie. well i baited up a crappie nibble again and in about 10 minutes i has another crappie. i thought maybe this was the start to a full live well but i was wrong not another bite in 30 minutes so we pulled up anchor and left for home. it was a good day on the water with my family though. so it was definately not a wasted day, i am glad they went with me.
