RL weekend fishing report

3 posts in this topic

Was up Thurs afternoon through Saturday. Got the skivvy from Bill at RL1Stop whose advice on shoreline was right on.

Nightcrawlers and spinners in 20-30 ft of water. Some mid day a little deeper too. The action was good in the mornings, slowed down a bit in the afternoons and then the evenings were good again. Plenty of slot fish with the biggest at 26" and the most came in at that 14"-17". Blade color of gold, Orange/black, Perch, and actually just about most colors worked.

We knew things were going our way Friday when in the afternoon we found 7 full cans of PBR floating right by our boat and after an hour of ice time they really hit the spot. This was right after dodging the thunder storm. PBR from heaven.

Appears that a few walleyes are on the reefs now too as we started catching them Saturday and that was where the biggest one was caught. But, definately had more numbers come from shoreline yet. This coming weekend the reefs should be going better.

Thanks Bill! See you in August.

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
