Spider Lake in Nevis

6 posts in this topic

Has anyone or anyone you know fished Spider Lake this past year?

I over heard a couple guys at the Iron horse bar in Nevis saying that it's starting to turn in to a pretty good Crappie lake.

Where would be a good spot to get on the ice this winter?

Thanks

Lunker Guy-

My parents have a place on Spider Lake. There are quite a few crappies but there is a 10 inch minnimum on the lake. As you can imagine there are a lot of fish that measure 9 3/4. Having said that the fishing for them can be a lot of fun. The ice on the lake can be tricky with a lot of slush and water on the ice. I know of some good spots and will share them by e-mail if you'd like at dan_stith@yahoo.com.

Lunkerguy I think that you should stop sitting around on your computer all day long thinking about fishing this lake. Go out and do it!!!

I'm not sure, but I think there is a minimum length limit on the crappies on Spider lake too. I'm not totally sure but it would be worth looking into, if you give it a try.

Last time I was on Spider, all I caught were crappies, but most were under the minimum size limit. It didn't matter what I put out there. I used minnows, waxworms, Gulp, leeches, crawlers and plain jigs. Tons of crappies.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
