I am coming up this Friday. Is the bite better in the morning or afternoon. If it is good in the morning I may get an early start and get up there by 7am.

Thanks

Definately get out in the morning. You never know, sometimes we do better in the morning and the next day not catch anything untill mid-day.

I was out all day yesterday trying some reef fishing with some luck but nothing Great. We moved over towards Zippel around 2:00 and set up in 18ft. and ended up with a pretty nice bucket of fish. I was told the early morning bite there yesterday was real good. I would definately try the early morning in shallow. We didn't really have a hot lure but the rattle reels probably did the best set up with a plain hook and shiner.

Jason,

How high you setting those rattle reels off the bottom? I haven't had a fish on my bobber line in three trips. Must be doing something wrong!

Thanks

i use a bobber on 1 and jig with the other.i set my bobber about 4 to 6 inches of the bottom.if i see fish on the vex on the bottom and they wont bite i set the bobber just about on the bottom.that seemed to work the last couple times i was up there.

Doug,

I have been setting one rattle reel about 3" off the bottom and the other appr. 12-18" off the bottom so far this season. It has been varying daily but averaged out, they have been producing about the same. Usually though, 12"-18" is where I set them.

Yeah I think I've been running a bit low. Especially since everything seems to need to come up to eat lately.

Hope to spend more than a couple hours out and figure things out soon!

      I got a good idea........maybe have a couple more beers and not worry so much about your neighbors. In fact invite them over for a dinner and a beer and discuss your issues...that's how my neighborhood settles issues.  Man to man...works out pretty good....

      Send him some literature on CWD. Like FishingCT mentioned, disease spreads at common gathering points where deer may rub noses. CWD, for example, spreads through a prion or protein that can spread this way.  This spread of disease is an example of why disease in raised herds is such a big deal.

      Feeding deer, especially in the winter, is a really good way to spread disease. Maybe you won't have to worry about them as much next winter after all

      Because I'm sure he was serious about Molotov cocktails.  Is there an eyeroll button?

      I agree with your neighbor , it isn't a big deal , your grass will grow back , and my guess is with the spring rains , all poop pellets will disintegrate and be totally gone soon , if they are not already gone ..  my question is what the heck are you planning to do with Molotov cocktails ?  If I saw you toss one at the deer , I would be calling that CO , and he WOULD have something to write YOU a ticket for . .  And if you flung one onto my property , well let's just say you would have a big issue to deal with yourself ,, that would be me !!! My suggestion is to just relax ..

      Fence and pressure from the neighborhood is your best best until there is a law against it. Good luck.

      A letter from all the neighbors or a neighborhood meeting with him sounds like a good first thing to try. Maybe he'll get the hint. Better than war.
