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.

      Those are quantom blades in that picture and they work great for reopening holes and I never had a problem with it being bad for the blades in fact that ring around the bit on the bottom is to help guide the blade when going through a preexisting hole

      Mine looks like that.  And it does reopen holes, and is sharp.  But, had read in past it was not good for the blade.  A friend indeed has attached a 10" Strikemaster, dual blade to his Eskimo so it does work.  His impressively cuts holes quickly, at angles, etc.  He spears so he does 5 holes side by side , 3 holes deep, then augers side ways to remove in between.  Works well.  Complete hole done, less scooping, in under 10 minutes.   Thanks for all the advice.  Could use something larger than 8" anyway, so may go to 10.  Also will redo back part by toy hauler door, under bunks to a 20" x 5' hole, covered and hinged of course.  May spear, but even if not I love watching the fish and various movements of bait, etc.   Again, thanks for being generous. Wahoo
