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.

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.
