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.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
