Time for a spring bobber....


Pantherburn

Recommended Posts

After last night I am convinced my ultra-light/noodle/micro this and that is not gonna get the job done on those really, really light biters. I did okay initially and they were semi-aggressive but once they lulled for a bit, I was connecting on 1 of 10 fish.....my silouhette (sp.) on the side of my clam must have been pretty funny to see. Probably looked like Danielson, waxing on and off. Anyways, I always knew a spring bobber would help but thought I could get around it. Not so much anymore. smirk.gif

I've seen similar things in my recent trips as well. The demand for a spring bobber is definitely there as of late. Some very finicky fish and a lot of bites are going undetected without a spring bobber, the hook-set is too late because you're missing the initial bite. I tried running and gunning without a spring bobber and things were rather tough. I switched over to the spring bobber rig and my success rate doubled, if not tripled.

However, I would expect the bite to pick up here in the next day or so, if it hasn't already. These warm temps and sun should put those fish back in the mood. Get that pressure change and we'll see some action...

They weren't in the mood where I was last night! Could see them stacked up on the fishfinder, but they were in a definite negative mood. I think I got three bluegilles, and I had to resort to a #12 Ratfinkee on a spring bobber to have them make their move.

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?

      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
