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...

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
