Going fishing this afternoon

14 posts in this topic

I'm heading out to chase crappies this afternoon/evening. If anyone would like to join me shoot me an email. I know it's short notice but thought if someone was thinking about heading out this afternoon we could team up.

I was on a local lake this week, i was fishing a weed edge in the morning for crappies and sunnys, It would be dead for 30 min, then all of a sudden the school would come through and I could pick up a couple then they would be gone. It would be like this all morning. Then for the evening bight...They would come through and I could not get them to bight. I tried waxies, minnows, different colors and presentations. Anyone have any advice to entice those fish to bight? You think the cold front shut them off?

I have had that happen to me also. The one thing I learned was to go as small as you can with your jig and bait. That has worked for me in the past but if they still arent biting they must just be swimming by and theres not much you can do then.

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;
    • eyeguy 54
      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol

      Why don't you take the free Dewalt I offered you....no more worries about not enough power...lol :-)
