Great weekend at Hunters

3 posts in this topic

The fishing was a bit tough with the wind this weekend at Hunters point but I am pretty happy how I did. I arrived at hunters at about 5PM on Friday, I had my line wet 30 minutes later. I ended up getting a 29" that was about 9lbs, 2-28" inches and another 8-10 in the 22"-27" range and 4 that were 15-18. Awesome simple awesome.

George at Hunters was a true gentleman and treated my wife and me great. The cabin was spotless and the drinks at the tavern, well lets just say they slid down just fine. Of course when you fish alone the picture taking ability gets pretty tough with 3 foot rollers in a 16' boat so this is about the best one I got. Sorry about the rip in the drawers but I guess that happens...

Minnwinni,

I pretty much stayed away from everybody, found a break from 14 to 21FOW and it seemed like as soon as I hit the 18-19 foot mark the fight was on. I didnt fish a ton of hours either the best times for me was 6-9am. I was in everynight by 8 being I couldnt hold my boat with my anchors. Plus I have a 8 month old daughter that wanted to see her Pops. Lindy Rig with a red hook with a glow bead with a 10-12 foot snell, with smaller leaches.

      Looks fun Eyguy. As normal no time to get out but did just finish up cleaning and checking over the yak so maybe thats a sign. Haha.

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
