Big thanks to Cranker

6 posts in this topic

Just wanted to say thanks again for the helpfull information that you gave us on saturday. After looking at your houses, it is too bad that we weren't able to rent from you, but hopefully next year. I will keep an eye on the reports and if things look good, we will probably be back up there on the weekend of march 24th.

As for our fishing, no 'eyes, but we did manage a meal of jumbo's. There was just two of us and I seemed to have the magic lure with a custom jig diamond jig in bright pink tipped with just a crappie minnow head. Had three jumbos over 12" and lost what I would guess to be a 14 or larger at the hole. We found the fish in 27 feet of water over sand on saturday. On sunday we searched alot of areas and ended up back where we were on saturday, but a little shallower. We finally found the perch right on the transition area from sand to gravel and rock. But they were very tight lipped. Finally to entice a bite I downsized to a #14 fly hook with a split shot 10" above the hook, and had to use the smallest WHOLE crappie minnows I could find, but even then only the small ones would take it.

Good luck to everyone in these final days of the 'eye hunt, and hope to see you in March Jim.

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
