Finally...Cedar Island Produces!

14 posts in this topic

5 Straight weekends of fishing with slow-to-no action. Was beginning to lose hope. Yesterday was phenomenal! I haven't seen that much color on the Lowrance since L O' Woods 3 years ago. Had to put one of the rods down because too much action and couldn't manage both. Sorry to brag here, but I'm just pumped!

Tried a new ice spot that reportedly produced well in the past during the spring. BINGO. Hot times were 10-noon and 4-6:30. Red buck shot type (without the shot) with red hook with a pinched crappie head were producing an abundcance of real nice slabs.

Not sure if I'm willing to brave the cold weather today or not, but with the last day off work and the overpowering "call of the crappie", I may not be able to resist. They are there and they are hungry.

Fish fry tonite...all are welcome. 8^)

Good luck.

haha my bad

could barely see the bottom of the hole this afternoon out there!

Forgot the heater--not fun trying to keep the hands warm and the holes ice-free in our little portable with this cold weather. Hoping the warmup at the start of next week lasts indefinitely!

Going to give it another shot this weekend and see if I can do a repeat performance. Wished I'd have been up on Thursday and yesterday since the hot bite described in this original post was just before a cold front moved in.

If this weekend doesn't work out on Cedar Island, that's OK...heading back to LOW for the annual eye-hunt next Wednesday.

Good luck!

Cool, thanks for the report. I have a good idea where you were because I have fished the same area in years past. A lot of great water out there if you move around to find em' Thanks again and happy fishing...
