Limited out on Crappies today!

17 posts in this topic

I'll leave it up to you to guess where... Small lake, usually one of the first to freeze up.

Standing on the ice was awful in the cold wind, but catching the crappies was definitely worth it!

How can I send a private message to you? The option isn't available for some reason... It says send PM, but the link is black and not clickable.

For the record... Me and a buddy went out last night and limited out again. I went back out this afternoon and caught my limit within an hour.

You can PM me if you'd like to know the lake... I can't seem to figure out the message system on here, so let me know when you do.

Mike, I know you have no idea who I am but do you think you could send me an email on what lake you were on? I promise I won't tell anyone the name, even my buddies. I know of some lakes that I don't even tell my buddies about because sometimes I just want to fish in peace and get away from all the noise (you can probly relate). I have never given away a hotspot and never will. If you want to tell, my email is fishinbros2@aol.com

Your secret's safe with me!

Thanks!

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.

      Sorry for the late reply, but no, the first 5 to 6" was soft but the rest was solid. I've been busy in the woods making maple syrup that I haven't got time to get out. I hope to get out tomoorrow.

      Thank you very much! I appreciate the information. I think I will run straight fluoro then. 
    • Musky hunter 82
      I have been using the Alberto knot and really like it, it's easy to tie and one of the strongest knots when going from braid to Fluoro.  I mostly have been using that knot on a spinning rod, for baitcasters I usually just like to run straight braid or straight Fluoro.

      Hey guys,   New to the forum here and I have a quick question;   I have been using seaguar knots to attach my fluoro leader to my braid, and for some reason, it is always knicking my guides, causing me not being able to cast as far. I am relatively new to baitcasters, so i was wondering if anybody had any suggestions? I was using 30 pound braid with a 12 pound seaguar flouro leader. Even tho the knot is so small between the leader and main line, it seems to knick the last few guides, and hinders my lures from dropping as quickly... any ideas? thanks in advance.
