Day bite crappies

6 posts in this topic

I was fishing a Cambridge area lake this afternoon and got into a bunch of crappies in the middle of the day.The sun was clouded over when the bite was on,but when the sun finally came out the bite ended quickly.Did anyone else have this happen to them?

I often get crappies during the day. Its just a matter of finding where they "day". You probably were set up in an area where they were moving from one area to another and caught a few on their daily migration.

Sounds right. Crappies will bite sometimes during the day, but you've got a better shot if it's cloudy. It seems that when the sun comes out the bite shuts off. But it will also return if it clouds up again.

We got into a ton of crappies at the prior get together. I might be wrong, but I think it was cloudy in the afternoon when we were catchin' them.

On Green the other day I caught a bunch of crappies when the sun was out, bright and sunny. I missed a really nice one too... Had it up to the top of the hole, was reaching down to scoop it out (because it was too heavy to lift out with just the rod) and the hook came out. I tried to quick get my hand under it and grab it out but it flopped around and got back down the hole. Yeah so I guess it's only a fish story now, but it was probably at least a 13" fish (or more?) \:\/cry.gif

      Leech, my experience exactly, I hated the thing! I'm a Mister Twister Piranha guy, it's a little heavier duty than the green ones but never had trouble with the green ones either over the many years I've used them. I can use a filet knife on those rare occasions we do a shore lunch somewhere.

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      I don't personally own a smmity sled but I've herd many great things about them.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.
