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. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
