Chillin on Spirit lake

3 posts in this topic

Gettin out of the insane Atlanta 2 hour traffic to go 16 miles to work and heading to my better halfs family's place in Menahga. I've sent my fly rod and all my tackle up already. There is spining tackle already up there. Floatin around on Spirit Lake and possibly the Crow Wing. What are your local fish hittin on? What should i be lookin for different than the north georgia trout streams and local man made lakes? any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

fish have been pretty active in the lately with the water falling back into more comfortable ranges on most area lakes. the walleye bite tends to be on leeches still however they are becoming hard to find. we still have jumbos at northern bait but i know some places are not getting them. the pike and bass are biting real well on minnows suckers and redtails being best.

If you are going to be fishing on the crow wing, I would recommend bringing a plethora of bait, maybe a few leopard frogs, crawlers, minnows (suckers,creek chubs), and some rapalas. The bite has been decent for some good walleyes, but their tastes seem to vary on a daily basis.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
