Heading up

3 posts in this topic

I think that I am heading up tonight for the last time this year. But I am not sure if I am crazy or not with the temps the way that they are blush.gif. I have not heard any reports as of this week and wonding if it is worth it. Also should I bring a oar to break through a little ice? I think that I am going to lauch out of Terrys. I have been up a few times but never this cold. Anyone else heading up there tonight?

I think it might be a little chilly, but if the wind calms down like the weather says, I think you should be ok. I think the bite will be good especially with low boat traffic tonight. Go slow, and don't be afraid to try HJ 10's.

I was with iceman and we just got back. We picked up four fish right away with only one over 22. I missed several fish as did iceman. We decided to leave way to early since the wind was dead and ice was forming and we were not able to keep our lines down without catching ice. Temp was not bad! Lure of choice tonight was a black/silver matzumo. Will have to get out again if it warms up.

now it Looks like I have to get up and take the pup pheasant hunting wink.gif.

Thanks to iceman for taking me out in his new ride. It's nice to be a passenger sometimes!

      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.

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
