  2. Is The lake iced up?

    Wanting to head up that way and fish on Friday, does anybody have any current information?
  3. Friday, 12/29

    Got on the water about 1130 and finished until 430, out of Mutton Creek. I was the only truck and trailer at the North ramp and I saw two other boats on the water today, water temps were right at 40. Spent the first hour trying to find the Crappie I was on last week with not even a nibble to be had. I switched over to bass fishing and the bite was on, I ended up with 13 bass and eight of those kept. I had one that went 6.5 and the photo below she was 4.14. All the fish came in about 100 yard stretch of bank on a channel swing on the main lake. I was fishing creature baits right on the bottom in about 18 to 22 feet. I’m sure this will be my last outing in 2017 with the temps taking a dive starting tomorrow. Tight Lines!

  5. Merry xmas everyone

    Merry Christmas 🎄🎁 Everybody! It’s been a great year on the water but it appears that there won’t be anymore fishing for me in 2017......sure hope these frigid temps break sooner than later! Tight Lines in 2018!!!
  6. Slabs!

    Yes , it’s a Champion. I ended up going back on Thursday and we had a very, very tough day. What a difference a day can make. Merry Christmas 🎁 🎄 everybody!!
  7. Slabs!

    Another great day on the water! Caught a limit of unbelievably large Crappie! Also caught a number of nice largemouth and one 17 inch walleye. This time I found them in 28 feet of water on a little channel swing that went from 20 to 28 feet. Dropped the little jig straight down, reeled up about 6 feet off the bottom and whamo! Water temps were about 46 to 48°. The other interesting thing is I caught some of the LMB on a spinner bait, didn’t realize they would hit it when it was this cold. Sure hate to see this cold weather coming in, it’s been a great three day run! Might have to make it four days!!! 😜

  10. Found a few crappie

    I am happy to help others as I usually fish by myself.
  11. Today.......

    Today was one of those days that if you weren’t on the water you should’ve been on the water! Everybody I talked to on the water today was catching a lot of fish. Limits of Crappie limits of bass, what a great day! Today we found the Crappie in 20 feet of water on brush and a bunch of LMB in 8 to 15 feet. Can’t wait to head back up tomorrow!
  12. Has this weather driven the eyes deep?

    I was up today and caught a 19 inch walleye in about 12 feet of water at the mouth of Maze. Also ended up with about a dozen bass with four of those as keepers. Headed up tomorrow and will try the other side of the lake. I did talk to a gentleman at Cedar Ridge and he was catching white bass on the bottom in 55 feet of water and he found his Crappie in 44 feet of water. The Crappie he had were all real nice 13 inch slabs.. Tight Lines !
  13. Mixed Bag!

    Spent yesterday out of Mutton Creek and had a pretty productive day in the drizzle. Bass fishing all day but ended up catching just about every species in the lake on spinnerbaits, jigs and crank baits. Ended up with 18 bass with only 3 keepers, 1 each of bluegill, catfish, drum, walleye and crappie. I also got into the whites big time at the mouth of Googer around 4:00. They we're schooling everywhere and the dozen or so I caught were all nice 2# fighters. Tight Lines!!
  14. Annual pass needed.

    Last year I was able to call a phone number and get an Army Corps of Engineers pass to use up at Roark Bluff. Does anybody have that phone number where I can get that annual pass? Thanks so much!
  15. man this forum is dead!

    I was up yesterday and since we couldn't find many bass we tried for the crappie. We found some nice slabs, believe it or not, in 2 to 4 feet of water on stumps. Couldn't believe they were that shallow!! Tons of shad that shallow and the crappie were right there with them. Tight Lines!
