The smallmouth are starting to show up on sand/gravel points. Use top water baits such as skitterpops and plastics like tubes. The bite will get better in the next couple of weeks! It is a little slow lately. Alot of big changes on the river in the last couple of weeks. Let them settle into the fall patterns. Good luck

Fishgun,

Take Chris's advice. A week ago Sunday my son and I went fishing with Chris. We had steady smallmouth action on tubes, all day.
My son, a six year old catfish fanatic, caught some nice cats that Chris put us onto as well. Chris taught us new techniques and educated us to another part of the river. We experienced a very enjoyable day. I would highly recommend his services.

Fishgun,

Take Chris's advice. A week ago Sunday my son and I had the opportunity to fish with him. We had plenty of smallmouth action all day on tubes. My six year old son, a catfisherman at heart, also caught some nice cats that Chris put him onto. Chris taught us a new technique and showed us another part of the river to fish. It was a very enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend his service.

Russ,

I'm glad you and your son had a good time. Your son sure love his "cats". I'm sure we will see you on the water sometime. If you ever need any info give me a e-mail! Thanks for the little plug! You guys take care and let me know how you do up river with those tubes.

Crappie Getter,

We did have a great time. Can't wait for the photos to be developed as we will have a poster sized one of my son and his "cats" made. Lately, that is all he can talk about is let's go catfishing. I'll have to get that jon boat now, because all he wants to do is go for the "big cats." We appreciate the offer for future advice.

Thanks again.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..
