    Oct 24-25 striper

    Dan, that is a great fish. Are you still using gizzards (shad)?

    Riding them waves

    lance, that is a nice stringer. Where you were at was the thermocline 18-20 feet then or were they right on top of it?

    Lance, no problem it's family first. I'm enjoying the grandkids this weekend. Won't be any trolling as they are 3 1/2 and 5 1/2 years old but they do like to do some bobber/worm perch jerkin if there is steady action and I have to admit I like it as much if not more than they do. Brings back a lot of good memories. Thanks for the intel, I appreciate it. I feel like I got 8-10 years of fishing experience and trial and error from your post. Thanks

    Lance, nice fish. Will this pattern hold thru the summer? Last summer I was able to pick up some along bluff lines that had timber but that was later in July/August maybe.

    Mad Scientist crappie experiment ๐Ÿ˜‚

    Lance, if you really like the stuff the Walmart in Springdale has some on clearance back in the northeast corner before going into lawn and garden. Did not look at the price but they had both green and red. That minnow looks like it came out of the cooling pond at Chernobyl. I did see a you tube video of a guy using that stuff and he was at Beaver fishing docks. Those are nice fish. I picked off a few from the bank this morning. One was the blackest crappie I have ever seen.

    Not quite Lance worthy

    Last Thursday before all the rain ran down after work to a cove in War Eagle arm and pitched a jig under a cork next to a blow down. Plastic jig in monkey milk color about 2 feet under the cork. All were 10-12" and a couple had some undeveloped eggs so was starting to get close. Not sure what all this rain will do to it. The color pre rain was fairly clear but haven't looked since it started.
  7. Nice stringer!. That 5 gallon bucket has had a ton of fish in it since I have been on this site.

    Jerkin Bass

    The plan on Sunday was to get the little boat out and catch some of the crappie that Lance has been catching and relocating to lake Crisco. Only had about hour and a 1/2 before dark so decided to go down to a gravel bank and see if could catch any walleye that were moving in to spawn. No walleye but did catch these bass and the one crappie. The one was on a rattletrap and not a jerk bait. The bass almost had no color almost silver. The picture actually gives them more color that you could see with your eyes. The bank has a pretty good slope so these were in 7-8 foot of water. War Eagle arm One posted upside down for some reason.

    Oooh got that fever

    Lance, is there an advantage to having the sinker in between your baits? My set up has always been to have the sinker on bottom with the two baits above it tied with Palomar knots

    Oooh got that fever

    Lance, keep them coming please. I'm like you, a lot of what I know about fishing this lake I have learned on this board. There has been plenty of trial and error for me but a lot of places, times, techniques, etc. I've picked up here that would not have tried or thought of like these muddy bottom crappie. Going to try and get the little boat out tomorrow. I don't spider rig but will try a double drop rig with minnow top and plastic jig on bottom with a couple of poles.

    Slab Sunday

    How long is that first fish? Looks like a monster
  13. Lance, that is a nice bucket of fish. That thing has had a bunch in it since the time I started lurking on this site. I never equate crappie and mud bottoms though. Wood, rock, gravel, docks, trees, etc. but not mud. Is this just a winter pattern? Thanks

    11/19 Report

    I was further south in the War Eagle arm Sunday and could not net any shad. The color there was more stained than previous, not bad but more than before. Maybe the wind on Friday and Saturday stirred it up? Ended up trolling cranks and jigged a spoon under a shad ball I saw on the locator but only a few small whites. A couple of times would see some small surface activity and would cast to it with a curly tail but no takers. My little lowrance elite 4 doesn't have a temp sensor so only would be a guesstimate on water temp.

    Dan, did you get these on gizzards? I have no luck netting gizzards but been getting threadfin. May go buy some brooders and see if I can luck into one. Congrats on breaking in the boat with a beauty.
