Silvers and Crappies Must've Taken Today Off

4 posts in this topic

Launched out of beanies today in search of some silvers and crappies. Shad were everywhere, jumping out of the water for no reason...unfortunately no gamefish were nearby (or hungry). My dad actually a shad...a whopping 4 inches, but we managed to land it. 6.5 hours on the water and all we had to show for it was a 1 pound white bass and a 1 pound crappie. Couple the slow fishing with me breaking my electric motor and it made for a very bad day!

Hey JB, I'm going to show my ignorance here. What the heck is a silver? I'm pretty certain there ain't no Coho in the river. Lots of crappie north of Hiline pt. on the wisco side this past weekend. They were mostly right on the bottom in 17ft.

He meant White Bass. Commonly called Silvers, Stripers up here.

Them White Bass schools are always on the constant move. They can be there one minute and gone the next minute. There's alot of bait fish around right now and not a single game fishing feeding except roughies. Them Crappies are there if you can find them.

I marked lot's of fish (but they were probably shad) at the spot where I caught the crappie...our consensus is that we got to that spot too late in the day. Oh well, winter isn't too far away, we'll see what happens then.

And yes, "silvers" are a common name for white bass. Wouldn't it be pretty neat if the croix did have coho's though?

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!
