    Moody fish

    This week compared to last week was tough. Caught them quick last Saturday in 15 to 16 fow down close to bottom. This week I marked more fish in 12 to 10 fow on the bottom. They seemed to be grouped up early in the day but by mid day spread out and not many fish active. I would see one swimming on the bottom and get lined up on. It would swim up look and then turn around. The ones that did bite hit hard and fought aggressive. Got em but took all day... Talk about day to day mood swings. God bless and good fishing Lance Pics from last weekend’s trip and yesterday
  2. @Ron Burgundy Yes.. Plan to do the one coming up at the end of the month.
  3. Past three weekend trips have been a grind. Fished few weekends ago from sun up to sun down. Took all day to get there but boy were they some good ones. Fish still seem to be holding out in 13 to 15 fow of water. I’m not catching many shallow like in previous years... Also catching a ton of little ones this year than I ever have it seems. Last week it rained so took off to cleaner water and didn’t do very good at all. Fished in the snow and caught one crappie. Should of just took off. Got out Saturday about 10 and fished till dark. The water was brown. Look perfect t

  5. Took a good friend of mine Saturday 12-19-20. We launched around 8:00am and got setup rigging about 8:30. We started putting a pattern together in about 40 minutes and putting toads in the boat. The bite was the best about mid morning and got intermittent as it steadily moved closer to noon. I think we had one limit by 11:30. Once the sky cleared in the afternoon and the wind quit the bite came to a halt. Shorts kept us busy in the afternoon and only caught few keepers then. Stayed at it till about 3 and pulled up with 18. 12 to 16 fow, 12-13 feet down was the best bite for us. S
  6. @Champ188 Thanks a lot sir Went again yesterday about 9:30 to 12:30 they were group up thick and munching good. Smoked a limit rigging a 10-12 foot contour and about 8 feet down.
  7. Yes that’s normal. Back in December of 2016 I kinda stubble on this. Caught fish in 9 fow or less that whole winter season. Stayed on that shallow water pattern until the big flood that April in 2017. Same thing for half the winter of 2017/2018 until floods came again. Ever since then I haven’t experienced it until this past weekend. It’s all about lake level. The last two winters you be in the bushes. Keep your fingers crossed the lake stays down. Been hoping for this again for a awhile. It’s a lot of fun. And the quality of fish will be eye opening. Still to this day my biggest be
  8. Got out Saturday about 10 and fished till dark. I just love this time year. I like to sleep in and fish till dark. Started out in 15 fow rigging brush pile to brush pile. Wasn’t really having the success like the previous trips. Mostly catching little ones and wasn’t feeling that’s where I needed to be. So went back to what I’ve done previous times this time of year when the WT drops and moved into shallower water. Started in 12 to 10 fow range. Right on the ledge. My outside left poles side seemed to be still more in the 13 plus range while my right side poles where in the 10 foot r
  9. Pretty much the same pattern as previous trip. 15 fow on brush. Caught three roaming while moving to brush pile to brush pile and those were my biggest fish of the day. Marked several more piles I found on the way. This is new for me. Moving to brush pile to brush pile and then parking on it. It’s a lot of fun because once you hit it two or three poles go down quickly. They loaded with little crappie and good eater size crappie 10”-11”. Hopefully this cold air will put them bigger fish on the move and get them to the traditional areas you can find them in roaming... Good fishing and G

  11. @Greg B. Same here. They sucked the bait on down and didn’t like being hooked... Pulled good
  12. Went after church again Sunday. Started about 11 and pulled out my lines at 4:30. Went back to where we went last weekend again to get out of the wind. Rigged along a flat in 15 fow. Everything flipped this week. Caught two random roamers and the rest came off of brush I would come up on. Got to where I would just spot lock on them and drift my lines back over them. I would catch a few and move till I found another. Then repeat. Hardly ever do that because the bigger fish roam but I wasn’t seeing much at all in open water. WT 54, pea green water color, kept 15 Good fishin

    Success

    Went on a hunch to go fish an area I haven’t fished in two years on Sunday afternoon. Mainly we decided to do it was to stay out of the wind. Went to a flat where tons of success has happened before. There was fish all in the 15 foot contour. We caught a ton of shorts. Guessing probably 30 but with about every 5 short was a keeper. It got really good about 3:30ish and we left them biting at 4:45. Minnow rigging, WT 54ish, Stained clarity... Kept 18 God Bless and good fishing Lance
  14. I haven’t fished Beaver in the fall in over 3 years... I remember why now... I stink at it.🤣... Was doing really good until the beginning of October and that’s when they quit biting for me... Always happens?? Don’t really know what I’m doing wrong Should just hauled off to other lakes like normal routine but wanted to see if I could figure it out but dang it sucks... Gone up both rivers, fished out of hickory with all the same results. Just a few keepers and tons of short 7 inch crappie... Seeing tons of bait and fish just can’t get many to bite. They just bump the bait and let
  15. Well it reversed this week. Wednesday was good and Saturday was a bust. Wednesday went back to where I caught them Saturday. Worked a pocket for awhile and only picked up a few. The way they’ve been moving water earlier in the week I just guessed they moved out to the flat. Because that’s where they were. Got on the flat in 18-17 fow and 10-12 feet down. Steadily picked them off but once moving up on a point the bite got better. They were stacked around it. Straight minnows and moon jigs tipped with a minnow worked the best. Saturday they were still there in that 18-17 fow r
