    That was a cold limit

    A little late.... Got out Sunday after church.... WT 44, brown water Fish still were high in the column.. 13-15 fow 5-7 feet down, straight meat... Rigging They bit steady from the start to the end... Limit in about an hour and a half... Played for about an hour and culled several. Froze my tail off but worth it God Bless and good fishing...

    Finally caught Walter!!!

    Yesterday went about how I expected it with the crappie bite... Knew I was going to catch them but knew it was going to take time... That steady draw down that COE has been doing and then it turns around and goes right back up a foot in 24 hours... The mud pushing through. The cold rain and cold temps... Normally would of just stayed home but the forecast not looking any better.... Figure what’s to loose, go learn a pattern for these conditions Still surprised by the water temp... It was 44-45... Gave better hopes Got started about 11ish and fish till 4 Put the spread out at various depths at the start. Forever, never could zero in on a depth... Fish seemed to be scattered... 6 foot down, 8 foot down, 12 foot down, and 16 foot down... Kept looking for that consistent steady bite. Said to myself shoot just raise them all up to 4 and 5 feet and go small minnow because they seem to be finicky today on their bite... If there’s any active feeding fish consistently they gonna be high in the column with this mud... That’s when it got steady and a quicker bite... Just going on past experience with that call Fished new water too and fish that haven’t been bothered most likely. Got into 9-7 fow just looking to find bigger keeper crappie... No luck with that... But did pick up my first keeper walleye at 24”. Caught 3 shorts in the past seven years fishing Beaver Lake. Hooked up on 3 stripers. Boated two... One was just under 20” and the other was just over 24”... Lost big brother... It straighten the lite wire size 2 hook on the minnow rig before ever getting the chance to get it up close to the boat... The walleye made the trip though... Thought it was a big ol catfish at first when all I saw was a fat white belly and was going to cut it off. Then she rolled over and saw a mouth full of teeth... Said oh baby get in the boat!! Caught several of them pesky whites... Next to gar.... Just can’t stand them things... Luckily no tangles in other lines. Ended the day with 12 crappie from 10-13 inches, walleye and a striper... Can’t wait to fix up the walleye... Never had one God bless and good fishing... Lance

    Got that fever

    @Greg B. yes they were glued to the bottom and not moving an inch.... I was about a foot to foot and a half off the bottom. Pretty much had to set still or just bump the motor. That lower drop in WT kind of like stuns them bit. It was all about just figureing out the presentation they want it at that given time

    Got that fever

    Man oh Man what a day! Water temp was 38 degrees... Clarity isn’t brown... Like a hard dark stain color... Like milky greenish I guess is the best way to describe it🤷🏼‍♂️🤣 Took an family friend and avid crappie fishermen from back home that relocated to NWA.... Took us a bit to locate them but once we did and put a pattern together it was on.... We put a two man limit together of 11-13 inch crappie with only one crappie that was under the length limit. It was a very subtle bite most of the day.... It was like they were just sucking on the minnow and swimming with it.... Hooks sets are free so if that line just didn’t look right in the water you grab the rod and gave it a whip. Still looking for them hammer fish like caught consistently this time of year in previous years... Think the higher water level this winter has them hidden more. I don’t know Pics below... That one pic was taken when we pulled up to count and sort out shorter fish to cull... 45 crappie game aboard all together Got that fever... God Bless and good fishing Lance

    Sunday afternoon hall pass

    No sir I’m no better than the next guy... You’ll get there.... Rigging is the only way I fish and been doing for several years. Can’t remember the last time I single pole. Maybe 3 or so years... Just following seasonally migrating fish and knowing where they are certain times of year. Your best tool is time on the water. You saw what I did? Don’t fish in a crowd... Go find fish that haven’t been bothered

    Sunday afternoon hall pass

    Got started about 12:45 Sunday after church. Water clarity was brown and at 44 degrees. Light winds and high sun.... They gonna be on the bottom laying in the mud and going to bite lite. Had to move slow or even just stop and bump the button. No real hammer rod tips down or anything, just line movement. Got a limit in just over an hour... Culled a few for another hour and left to stay on good side of my better half.... Nice to finally have great weather conditions and not have the tin can get tossed around all day. God bless and good fishing Lance

    Finally got to go fish

    These yucky weekends are getting old.... Making me miss my weekly Friday therapy appointment...🤣 Finally got to go yesterday. Got started fishing about 11. WT 43 with a gale force wind on and off. Seemed more on than off...🙄 Water clarity wasn’t as muddy as previous reports. Maybe 8” instead of zero inches of visibility... Had 12 within an hour and then they shut down. Took another 30 minutes to get 3 more.... Messed around for about another hour culling a couple and then headed to the house. They seemed to be scattered throughout the water column. From 5 feet down to the bottom at 15 feet.... Rigging I didn’t fish below 6 feet all day. Made that decision just based on the size being consistently caught. Other than the wind tossing my tin can around it was awesome start to 2019. Pics below God Bless and good fishing Lance

    Got em quick

    Thanks sir... Ice fishing is on the bucket list. The pictures and videos I’ve seen it looks to be an awesome experience... Hopefully you’ll get some hard water soon. Good fishing

    Got em quick

    Thanks sir... For sure glad to get them quick. Funny though when they bite that fast you forget about that it feels like 20 degrees 🤣 Plus having four layer of clothes on helps🤣
