Winstead league @ Washington

Recommended Posts

Wow what a crappy night... Got skunked. fished Washington's north shore working towards the west fliping docks and throwing a minus-1 between them. Caught two bass on the minus-1 but both were short around 11.5in. I was actually looking forward to that lake and am dissapointed. thinking back... I really don't think I could have done much else. Only 4 boats out of 10 weighed in fish. Winning weight was in the 7 lb range. Second was 5.3 and third was 3.2lbs. Pretty sad. Water is way low. Put it this way, I won't be going back there to pleasure fish. There are many many better fishing lakes in the area than Washington. mad.gif

Yes, the water is very low. It's ironic that it probably has the best landing in the area to launch and load, but after the boat is off the trailer the graph only shows 1' deep until you start heading out through the reeds. shocked.gif

I probably won't be heading back there anymore this year either.

Yeah, the landing was good and I think the only highlight of the evening... One guy did have about a 2.5lb smallie. Ironically he was doing the same thing as I was nearly the whole evening. Unreal. Either the population is down or the bass are scattered out throughout the main body of the lake (thats my guess). Lake is for the most part shallow and without too much structure so they could be just about anywhere. smirk.gif

There are some nice smallmouth in those two lakes and I should try targeting them more often. I don't care much for the LM, but smallmouth are a blast. I hooked into a couple over on Stella a month or so back while fishing for walleye and they were both chunks. Very fun.

I don't mean to sound negative, but I live on Washington and that was about the 8 billionth tournament/league that has been on that lake this year. If you fished the North side docks, you fished mine, and unless you were the first one there, you were the 12th. Fishing has been tough for the last few weeks with the low water and weed structure. I hope that wasn't a fellow FMer that hit his prop on the old road bed on the NE side. OUCH.

ktjig, I hear ya. I fish in a league and some of these lakes get hit pretty hard by leagues. I think there should be a organization or contact person to coordinated all these leagues. Let them run by there own rules, but have a schedule of all the leagues and the lakes they fish, and the days they fish are known by all the leagues. We ran into it a couple times this year of having two leagues on the same lake on the same night. This could be avoided if all the leagues would get together and plan there schedules.

I know you won't get a 100% of the leagues to do this but getting some of them would make alot of the home owners on the lakes happy.

I also fish in a league that is out of hutch. And your correct, they do get hit hard. Most of the leagues place there league list on classic bass.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell
