Marina fun

6 posts in this topic

I headed back out to the marina in lake city yesterday morning. I fished from about 11 til 3 and ended up with quite the catches. I managed to hook into 14 crappies with the smallest going about 8" and the remaining 13 were all 11" or bigger. Four sunnies also were caught with 3 of them being about 6-7" with one of them going 9". A 13" smallmouth also gave me a nice fight. All fish were caught on just a minnow under a float. The action is good out there and I will be sure to head back when I get back from my trip.

Good job Hanson, and nice report. I'll have to make it down there sometime and join in on the festivities.

How far under the float were you fishing?

I think I'm heading down there Sunday as well. I haven't heard any fantastic reports, but I'm going to give it a go anyways.

So I took my chances on Sunday and braved the snow on the ground. I was only out for about an hour because one of my gloves flew into the lake making my hands really cold.

The results 1 12-13" crappie and one small bluegill. However I saw some other people fishing around me who had been there much longer than I had. One group had 25-30 Crappie and the other group had a dozen or so.

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.

      There's a few really good cat spots in that stretch.  It won't be long and it will all be open.
