Plan B (Crooked Lake)

Recommended Posts

huskiesplayer15

Went out today at 5 to 5 this morning, wanted to be the first on the dock and I was by about an hour, had four nice bass on a terminator buzz bait. Switched over to start catching the crappies and they really were hitting, southern pro tubes again were the ticket, either in a brown/crawler color, or using a dark blue speckle with black teasers. I did trim up the tube from 1.5 to about an inch, got more bites without them hanging on the tails, using a 1/64 oz two tone jig head in orange in pink made by freshwater tackle. Other guys were catching some 13 to 15 inch bass trying for northerns and walleyes with fathead minnows. one little dink walleye was caught around 13 inches, called it a day around 8 am just before everyone started to show up.

MJ:
No I didnt, we thought we had the problem fixed with our lund, went out to linwood to try it out but after about five minutes at full throttle the rpms dropped out and the engine started to miss, so it has another check up with Rapid sport marine. How was LETS this weekend MJ?

LOST And Everyone else:
We can definatly meet up there sometime, I only have a half day of school left then I have football camp but early morning would work great for me.

We finished in 6th place with about 32.5 pounds. ChuckN cleaned house with 62 pounds off fish! Next closest was somewhere in the upper 40's. We found the bass, caught about 20 yesterday. We also pounded the panfish, bringing in a limit that weighed about 15 pounds the first day! I'll post some pictures once I get them. A lot of fun, some big slabs!

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

      Ace, honest question here with no intent to debate, just learning more about muskies. What surface temps do you consider to be too warm for handling muskies?
    • DLD24
      What are your guys favorite presentations this time of year? When I come up I've mostly rigged.

      Thanks Brian, the ratchet straps worked great.... quick, easy and secured it tight. I bought a bunch of big zip ties that it looks like I'll never use😀.

      CigarGuy, cool pic. Looks like a good time/place for a cigar. lol. As far as securing your dock sections, some folks use bailing wire.  That’s what I use. Heading down in a few minutes to secure mine before the next storm takes sections away. Man, the water is high!

      Just got up here. Road construction sucks.....four hour trip took almost 5 hours.  Thanks Del, back end of the boat was out of the water last weekend. Do you guys use zip ties to secure the dock boards, big rocks or ?...…any good ideas?  This was supposed to have been posted last night.  A couple of ratchet straps and I'm golden. Molly the dog is helping me watch my bobber 😀 Two eagles and 5 loons, no fish!!

      Fished Big Pine Lake today. Original plan was to fish the Kettle River, but the rain took care of that. I had fished big pine from shore, below the dam, years back and done well, but this was the first time I’ve ever taken a boat out there. Nice lake...looked to be about 2 feet high. Didn’t catch anything until about dinner time, when crappies started chasing schools of minnows on the west shoreline. Caught about 50 of them. I just happened to have a small twister tail that was almost an exact replica of the bait they were chasing, and that was the difference maker. My dad caught a decent pike that went after a little crappie he was reeling in. Was disappointed we didn’t find any bass, but I’d come back here again.

      Saw one up Norwegian bay tonight with like 10 basketball size rocks.   Never had to do anything with my old dock since height was adjustable so got no advice there. Posted 3 pictures to be sure I got the right place.  Bits are (nearly) free
