Little lakes are giving up fish

4 posts in this topic

Altough we have just lost the ice there are fish being caught.

I like to target those smaller lakes that warm quickly.

I'm catching mostly all male crappies with a few gills mixed in.

You can tell the males as they get blacker in area that are normally white like around the mouths .

Once we get into the spawn the males really get black.

Of coarse you can tell a female with those fat bellies.

Those pesky bass have been hitting too while searching for those crappies.

I've been using 64th oz hair jigs under a cork .Say 12" between them.Work the shore where there is some fallen trees or the reed stuble from last year.

They have also been found in that 4-6 FOW while roaming looking for food.
