KR-7 Question???

3 posts in this topic

What kinds of fish are in this body of water?? I took my son out there last night and he caught a TON of small fish, anything with size in here? Is there a better place to fish than the shoreline right when you come over the hill? Thanks!!

Probably won't find much for size in this specific pond. And for spots to fish, you also found pretty much the only spot to fish, the vast majority of this piece of water is like 4 feet or less except close to the dike where you were fishing. There are some decent perch, but they are getting fewer and farther between than they have in past times. I think that too many people kept too many for it to maintain itself, hopefully those who fish this body of water will try to remember that those nice bigger fish are also the future for the kids!

Like crazyice said, the water next to the dike is probably your best bet for fish since that is the deeper portion of the lake.

There are perch, bluegills, green sunfish, and black crappies (some white crappies too I think) in there. The fish tend to run small since there are no predatory fish present (at least that I know of).

      I have had good luck with a #4 red hook. About 5-6' of 10lb mono and tie the hook directly to the line. Hook the minnow along the back.

      Fished Owasso last summer for the first time since the winter kill, caught one bass in 4 hours. My wife was fishing for pan fish and didn't get a nibble. You might want to look for another lake. CW

      I use about a 6' leader of 10lb flouro tied to my main line with a small barrel swivel. As far as hooks go I don't use just one. I prefer a treble of some sort, usually a small glow spoon. If it's a single hook I lean towards bigger is better, but also in glow. Set it up at your desired depth and don't just forget about it. Check it, move it, check it, move it. You can cover a good amount of water if you aren't lazy about it. Also I use just a simple bobber tie for my depth marker instead of those little bobbers. No real reason why that's just what I'm used to. Good luck, half the fun is learning what works best for you.

      Hey everyone, picked up a frabil insulated tip up last weekend and I want to use it for a set line for walleyes when I want to set up another line in different depths. So I put about 100 years of 20 pound braid tip up line on it. My question is what do I use for my leader? I've herd mono and flouro work good but I don't know which is best? And as far as hooks go what to you guys use? Single red hook? Treble? Sure set? Thanks!
