German?

8 posts in this topic

How's the ice looking on German? Will a guy be able to walk out still this weekend? We did pretty good a few weeks ago out there, haven't been out since.

There is plenty ice i would not drive a car or truck and if shorelines will hold up atvs should be an option walking should not be a problem unless we get a lot of rain and wind

I was out last Thursday night. Roughly 16" of ice out in the deeper water. My atv worked hard getting thru the first 100yds of slush in front of the public landing. It was clear sailing otherwise. Sunnies are suspended in the deep water 12' down and the crappies are moving in at dark. My buddy even caught a 26" eye on spikes tongue.gif while fishing sunnies. It was quite the battle on 2 pound test line. Good luck this weekend.

Never made it up to German, ended up working all 3 nights last weekend flipping burgers at Carl's. Oh well, more money for the open water fund.

Thanks for the birthday wishes basscatcher, turned the big 18, legally an adult, thats scary.

Thinking of hitting German in a few weeks once the water warms a bit, the crappies should be starting to move.

No he is not kidding! Highschool graduation marks the beginning of your working life. People never know how nice they have it in high school! Like I always say, you can always tell a teenager but you can't tell them much. Have a good one and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

Went out to German today. Windy as he** and had a heck of a time loading the boat by myself - let's just say I didn't stay dry. I cruised the key areas (at least areas that produced last year) and didn't mark any fish - only fish marked were suspended in about 40' of water. Water temp was 45 degrees. Couldn't coax a bite of of any of them. Nice to get the boat out even though it was a crappy (not crappie) day.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
