The Crew went Fishin Report - 5/18/07 (3 pics added)

7 of us hitup one our Rochester area reservoirs last night. It was a great evening for fishing. Temp was perfect and wind was wimpy.

Everybody caught fish both big and small. All plastics. None of us had live bait. We caught 1 white sucker, a few pumpkinseeds, several largemouth bass, ~40 gills, ~75 white crappies, and ~25 black crappies. Just about all our gills were at or over 8” with the largest going 8.75” and lots of bullish color in some and bellies on others. Nearly all our white crappies were total dinks, but they were fun. I went 6 casts in a row with fish, followed by 1 blank, then 4 in a row again (freelining a 2” pink/white Exude Twister). We had a dozen or so black crappies that were 9-10.5”

The preferred method of the gills was small plastics under a float (I used Culprit paddletails on 1/32oz collarless jigs). Often times they would hit it right as soon as the bobber stood up. I think the drop motivated them. Crappies took the same presentation and enjoyed the twister tail freeline as well.

All fish were released.

I saw loads of gill beds, but the fish were not actively on them last night. I’m not exactly sure why, but they could be found out a little deeper than their beds.

It was nice fishing with everybody last night. Several of these guys had never fished this particular body of water until last night, but I have a feeling they will all be coming back soon.

I lucked out on tics with NONE and was happy about that.

The Crew: Nate L, Shawn G, Ryan D, Alex W, and the Andies

The main thing that I noticed was that my crappie could have ate those bluegills.

went out there to give it a try again last nite with pretty good results, between my and my cousion we reeled in around 30 or so nice sunnys the biggest going just a hair over 9", only a few crappies though and they were dinks, as usuall for this body of water the crappies all came right at sunset, also had a few bass, the pink/white minimite with a waxie was what the gills wanted with all the crappies coming on blue/chartruse paddeltails, my cousion also did well with a black and gold floating rapala

I have to remain mysterious!! Don't want everyone to know that they are out there with an expert, and for sure can't let on that I am an expert! It is all part of my master plan! grin.gif
