Need Fishing Report and Info

2 posts in this topic

A group of friends and I are heading to LOW this weekend and are planning to stop and fish on URL. Can some one give me a fishing update on URL... How's the bite? What time of the day is best? What's the best presentation (jigging, bobber, etc.) What are some of the hot jigs/spoons, etc.

Thanks in advance for your help!!

We just got back sunday night.We went out of Waskish and stayed three days in sleeper houses.The crappie bite was pretty slow,but we did manage to land a dozen of fish over 13 inches, the biggest being 14.5 inches.We were about 5 miles out on the lake away from the crowd.The good news is the action was nonstop for three days with other fish.We landed northern after northern with our crappie poles. Every person in our group of six caught at least one northern over 35 inches.We caught 10 over 10 pounds,with many between 4-8 pounds.Also the walleye were very cooporative.They seemed to hit all day long,and into the evening.Even though you can not keep them,they provided alot of fun.We also caught over 200 perch of all sizes.Needless to say we had a ball.We were fishing in 14 feet over what looked to be an area that had had weeds in the summer.I used just a plain hook and small minnows,and some of our group were using variuos jigs,and spoons and it didnt seem to matter.The crappie we did catch were caught about 8-8:30 in the evening.If you want some real fun take a tip up,and some big shiners.My buddy almost lost a finger from a 20 pound plus fish that broke our 20 lb test tip up line.All in all it was a blast.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
