  1. April 24 crappie report

    They have to get out of their trucks after they park, people would have to be blind not to see that their trailers are taking up two spots. Some people‘s kids........ There we’re at least a half a dozen spots that could not be parked in yesterday in the main lot because of the way people park their trucks and trailers. I can only imagine what this weekend is going to be like up there, I think I may stay home and let the madness continue. 🤪
  2. April 24 crappie report

    Great job Skeeter!!! I should have looked a little harder for you today, we had another great day on the H2o!!! Now if we could just get folks to park their truck & trailer without taking up two spots.....what a mess!
  3. Water Clarity/Temps

    55 degrees and clear around the twin bridges area.
  4. Whites

    Ditto! I’m taking George L. on Wednesday and hope to get him on the whites and slabs!!
  5. And so it has begun........

    Bring them on!!!
  6. Whites

    We were up today out of Roark Bluff and caught over 65 whites and 20 nice crappie. 90% of the whites were busting at the seam and had very rounded bellies. The 6 whites we kept and cleaned all had eggs.
  7. Fun Day!

    Went out of Roark Bluff today along with a bunch of boats. Ended up with 33 bass but only 3 keepers. However caught this 24”, 4# beauty on a jig in 18 feet of water. Mostly jig fish today but a few on a crankbait and spinnerbait. #theeyestillswims #thecrappieareonthemove
  8. Bass 4/16

    After waiting for the weather to warm up and the wind to die down I got on the water around 1230. Went out of state park and fished within a couple of miles of the breakwater. Ended up with 14 between 1230 and 530 including this 7.34 pound beauty. Water temps were 48 to 51. Caught fish on jigs, crank baits and creature baits. Tight Lines!

    Thanks Dutch, good to know not all my marbles are loose! 🤪
  10. Fishing in the wind

    Last year, on April 12th, we hammered the Crappie in Sons Creek. The 12th is my fathers birthday and I kept wishing he was out fishing with me. And I can promise you the water was much lower than it currently is, it might have been below power-pool. I don’t remember what the water temp was last year on the 12th but the trees/brush that we were fishing are now under “feet’s” of water. I’ll bet MOPanfisher can find the temps & lake levels from this time last year. If you head out this weekend stay warm! Tight Lines!

    Did you find any fish yesterday, inquiring minds want to know. :-)
  12. Fished from 730 to 4 o’clock today and easily had over 50 fish, best 5 would’ve gone about 19 including these two girls at 7.1 and 4.9. Water temps in the river started at 46 and ended up finally at 50 by late this afternoon. Crankbaits, jigs and a few spinnerbait fish!!! Could not buy a Crappie today but ended up with one 18 inch walleye that is currently in the hot grease! 😍. Tight Lines All!
  13. It continues to heat up!!

  14. Flurries!

    Quite the interesting day on the water. We ended up with about 30 which included a small limit. Fished around Roark Bluff and caught them mainly on jigs and crank baits. Don’t know if you heard or not but it took 29 pounds to win Joe Bass yesterday, yes 29 pounds!!! Water temps were 47 to 50°
  15. Lake Conditions, perfect timing

    We were up Wednesday and fished out of Mutton Creek and did not see any dirty water, including the backs of any coves or creeks we were in. We caught a number of fish on crankbaits, jigs and spinnerbaits. Couldn’t get but one crappie to hit and no walleye this trip. Water temps were 48 to 50. Tight Lines!
