Sometimes catching fish is just a part of the fun

1 post in this topic

I was just up on the 15-17 of Feb. with my 3 brothers and 2 of them never really fish. I really was looking forward to a good time and hopefully no bad drama. Things went great! I really must say.... Rick took great care of us at HighBanks! The house was great, the service was awesome. He came out to make sure all was good, and we had some of the "Legendary" Drummies at the bar....mmmmm good. Hard to beat that. Sounds like it has been a rough year as far as the gear goes for Rick, but the guy keeps it going! Gotta take my hat off to 'em. The fishing could have been better, but seeing the 22" eye come through the floor was real nice, and I am sure my bro's are enjoying them Jumbos! The lack of fish is all on Mother Nature. I hope that some of you guys out there don't frown upon your guide or resort owner for bad fishin, they can't control it. We all know how hard it can be to get on and catch them late ice 'eyes. Not an easy task. The guides and ownere are very busy people too. I really appriciate the great time on the ice with my brothers, and it is something that I hope to do again each winter. I will be callin on Rick without a doubt. If you want a good place to stay... High Banks, without a doubt in my mind. Thanks again! -Adam-

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
