aggressive fish

3 posts in this topic

I've been fishing from the NE shore of Washington the last few evenings with fatheads and the panfish have just been inhaling my bait. Bobber fishing the inside weedline in about 3 fow with a single red hook. They don't want anything else it seems. The funny thing is, even a small sunnie will just commit suicide on my minnow the second it hits the water. I tried using waxies and a flu flu, which usually turns several fish, but had much better luck on the minnow. Most fish have been marginal in size, but I did turn one 12" crappie and a 13" walleye last night. All catch and release, until the 14-16" walleyes show up. It was hard to release that crappie, but I have yet to see more than a few fish per species on any given night, other than the sunnies. I'm hoping that tonight's full moon and beautiful weather will keep me on the dock quite late tonight. Just a little info in case you can get out. By the way, the frogs were really jumping last week, but this warm weather has slowed them. Too many dock still in to shore cast for walleyes, I'll stick to the bobber for now.

The eyes are hitting crankbaits in shallow water on Belle and Erie. Fatheads were the food of choice for a short time, but things have changed pretty quick. Had the most luck in about 4' of water at daybreak and sundown. Gold seemed to work the best with a few on blue. No time to get back out this fall, gotta move to a new house. Can't wait for hard water this year. Hope for good early ice, fishing on 3" last year was a little nerve racking.
