Big/Mitchell

8 posts in this topic

Planning on taking the kids out tomorrow for a couple hours after school. Any luck on either lake? Also, any roads plowed out either accesses or are we going to have to walk it? Or anything else happening in the area for panfish/plowed roads? I am open to suggestions that will catch us some fish and the kids want to drive out rather than walk. Actually I think they want to be able to sit in the truck in case they get bored. shocked.gif

Thanks,

Andrew

Well, to answer my own question, driving on either lake is not really possible right now. We walked out left from the beach on Big. Tried between 6 and 12 fow with teardrop jigs and waxies. Every spot we tried caught at least something. We found a couple 6 1/2" gills in the deeper spots we tried, but we caught tiny ones everywhere. We didn't stay too long (one of the kids stepped in a hole frown.gif ) but from about 4:45 to 6:00 we probably caught a dozen or so gills and a couple perch.

I was on Big, I dunno, like 200-300 yard from the landing, angled left. We walked. Nobody has plowed Big or Mitchell at all. I don't think I would even try it with a big 4x4, the snow was pretty deep in places.

well with the warm weather, the lakes are slushy, you should be able to drive out this weekend, as the snow has settled and the slush is minimal. driving across the lakes today on my sled felt like I was riding a jet ski.

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!

      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.
