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.

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
