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.

Crappie Keith: Shhhh, you want to whisper when your back there. you could get an echo if you don't whisper.

Whispering is good at times.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
