Lotus Lake Report 2/15/08

2 posts in this topic

Hit Lotus last night from about 4pm-10pm. Pretty slow action. Managed a handful of 7-8" crappies (nothing worth keeping) and one good eater Walleye. Fished in about 12 fow just south of Carver Beach. Marked a few fish all night, but getting them to bite was tricky. I could get them to follow my jig someties up to 3' but couldn't quite get them to commit. Tried a few differnet colors/presentations...waxies, full crappie minnows, minnow heads and crappie nibbles.

Most crappies were had on a silver forage minnow tipped with a crappie minnow head. The Eye came on a white and pink moon glow jig with a fathead. I thought the fish would be a little more active last night with the front coming through. Perhaps today would be better with the warmer weather, but I can't make it out tonight, I don't think. Maybe Sunday night I can give it anothe try.

Went back again tonight (Sunday) and fished the north side...caught all the small sunnies a guy would want to catch and a handful of smaller crappies and that was it...

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
