Little rock 2-28-08

9 posts in this topic

Got out on the ice about 12:00 this afternoon. Ended up getting into a mess of Crappies ranging from 6-8" in about 15 fow. All were caught on glow jigs with fresh waters shrimps. We also hit 1 sunny at 11", thing was a tank.. wish i got a picture but something about ice holes eating electronics sits in the back of my head.

Didnt keep anything because the crappie were to small and that lake has a sketchy past. You can still see the blue/green bloom in the water once you punch a hole.

Ya right, not in that lake, did you release it or keep it for the wall?

Yup on Little Rock. I released it. If i were to get a mount it would be a replica. Hit 2 others last sunday one at 10" and another at 9".

I have yet to make up fish stories, no need to start now.

Those are some tanks Canoe. Way to go! Never really hear of sunnies out of the Rock, no reason to call you a liar though.

Backwaters of the Mississippi can produce some monster panfish! LR isn't the best backwater with the alge bloom/fishing pressure but you can still find some nice panfish if you know where to look....

ASMOLEY just wonder if some of the backwaters you are talking about would be like a bigger bay that has about 5 foot max depth and has weed growth there in the summer. Would you fish these in the late ice period because I have a spot in mind that I duck hunt and always wondered if there were pannies in the area.

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Yeah I thought if that. Just looking for other opinions.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
