Avon area lakes

5 posts in this topic

I have been having some sucess on Lower Spunk for crappies, on the small side though. Hoping to put the wheel house out on Upper Spunk Saturday. Have not yet fished the lake this winter. Has anyone else been fishing the Avon area this winter?

First off nice report. I fished Upper for walleyes earlier but haven't been out there for some time. I am going to try and get out there soon and hopefully find some crappies. The spunk lakes have some real good fishing in them my favorite is Upper but all 3 are good at times. Maybe I'll see you out there sometime and we can chat!

I was out on Upper yesterday am. Seems to have been lots of early day activity, mostly portables. There has been lots of traffic (wheeler and sleds). Out near the bullrush Island people are reporting 6 - 8 inches of ice. I stayed around the south shore and found 8.5 to 9.5 inches of clear ice with about a 2 inches of cloudy ice on top. I only found a couple of small slush holes. I hope to put my house out Sunday afternoon. Hopefully yesterdays warm weather knocked down the snow and with single digits temps this week we will be driving out soon. Look for the ugly camper conversion and stop by and say hi (if we make it out).

Good luck

Does anyone fish Middle???? I caught a bunch of walleyes and crappies in it this spring and summer, and I'm thinking about making a trip out there this winter to see if I can find them again.

The ice is iffy because of the depth, a few springs and the inlet. Shoot me a email and i can give you some areas to try. gonefishing56310@yahoo.com

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
