How's the fishing down there?

16 posts in this topic

It's been a couple years since I finished college down there and haven't had a chance to hit my old stomping grounds lately. How's the bite down there? I'm going to try and make a weekend trip down during the next month or so...

Ken? Tom? Jamison? Jason? Brandon? redrocket? Anyone have any cool reports... (ok, I know Jamison is catching fish ;\)grin.gif ) But is anyone else?

Matt:

I cannot speak for anyone else, but I've only managed to get out once so far, but I'm looking forward to getting out more often now that my son is older (2.5) and more independent. They've got a get together on Tetonka set for next weekend, that might be a consideration. I am sorry last winter didn't work out with the ice, but I am still interested in getting a guide trip together. I'm headed to Gull lake @ the end of the month, and wouldn't mind having a head start on finding fish if we run into a slow bite up there.

Lastly, I enjoyed the Mod. gathering @ Thorne Bros. and really got some useful info. from the talks.

well we are all not "pro's" but yeah the fish are biting it seems you have to coax them into biting alot of the time and panfish have been smaller then in years past \:\)

Matt,

Good to hear from you! I know where we can catch crappies with the majority over 10 inches. If you want to join me sometime, just let me know.

Matt, The sunnies and a few crappies have been caught in a area you may know on washington. The crappies that have been caught were better sized than anyother part of the lake ive fished. It has been a short window for the crappies but the sunnies would come and go. Ive only fished that area once this weekend while i was home. Pretty decent fish and action.

fishing has been fairlly well, we have been out in kens back yard and doing good. Have to be moblie I had the camara down today and seen alot of fish moving around the area. They are biting very lite the smaller the jig the better chance that you had, live bait has been the best tried plastics and it just wasen't working out, but all in all its been good.

I'll let you know when I head down and we'll all have to plan a trip somewhere. Maybe an informal FM gathering \:\)

Matt,

All I can say is there are a lot of good reports coming in from all the area lakes. Sizes vary, but the fish are generally cooperating.

Why dont you just pop in at the teTonka gathering this weekend.

As far as my fish report goes, have been hammering many specie in the last month but, its been all in the northern 1/3 of the state.

It would be good to see you again.

I would love to join up for the Tetonka gathering, but I already committed to helping out with the StrikeMaster clinics up here in the cities. I'll be sitting outside on a below zero day trying to help someone catch a 5-inch sunfish \:\)

I'm thinking sometime in February would be best. Make a weekend trip out of it and hit two different lakes...

      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!
