Heading to Spider

3 posts in this topic

Heading up to Spider next week, I'm hoping to get after bass, pike and maybe a muskie. I'll have my buddy with me two teenagers (they get the little boat). I've fished the lake 1 time before with mixed success but if anybody has some ideas for me I'd be quite grateful.

Cant help alot but i have been there a few times when i used to live about ten miles away. Smallies and pike are usually biting along the northeast shore down from the public access.(Head to the left as you come off the access). Lots of rock and some cabbage areas for a bonus pike or musky. If you follow that shore eventually you will come to a necked down area of the lake and that has reeds and pads and cabbage which is usually good for a mix of species. Cast spinnerbaits and fat raps or DT's and you will get action. I have never had to go any farther south than where the lake necks down and then opens up to the other arms.Cant speak to the rest of the lake but that has worked great for me in the past.

Thanks Muskydanno. I've been playing out different spots in my mind for a long time now and I'm pretty stoked to actually see cabbage weeds as opposed to pondweed! If anybody else has ideas or has been there recently let me know. I'll post results.

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
