Point 23 To Diamond City Marina

Gentlemen,

Went back at them again one week later. Well I don't know what to say for you all to go catch fish. I did not fair as well yesterday as I had a week ago. I started in the creek arms and caught a couple shorts on the wart. I decided to work the main lake after that and focus on some good windy banks. I worked bluff ends with jig and some main lake pea gravel with the wart, so on and so forth. I never boated a fish on the jig but took just a few on the wart. Whenever I saw a likely dock or brush for crappie I'd throw a tube jig. I boated numerous short bass on it, several "more than large" bluegill and a whopper of about a 3lb largemouth. Lends me to believe maybe I should have really downsized and finesse fished more. I saw several other boats but many were hopping from spot to spot so correct me anyone but looks like it may have been a tough one for all out there.

Thanks for the report. Glad you got out there. I got a bunch of BIG Bluegill when I crappie fished the other day too. Water temp? Water level? Any active water running in the back of the creeks?

Ham,

I actually looked for any running water and did not find any. I guess they did not get the rain like we did here. Water temp hovered in the 57 range the majority of the day. I never called for the lake level but it looks to be dropping. I saw alot of main lake "crappie" brush piles down by "seed tick" which are now out of water.

Lots of work putting out brush on a lake where the lake level can vary by more than 30 foot a year. I do need to inquire about getting a permit from the COE though.

Ham,

If you want to get serious about this brush project I'm all in. If we can get a permit then by all means I'll donate my time this winter to sink all the brush you like. What do you say?..........Darren

Let's take a look at it. It'll be a good excuse to go run the outboard in Feb.

I am going to make some calls to the COE next week.

I have a chain saw and a GPS.

As do I my friend! One other tidbit here. Check out this attachment. This is what I used to put out in my lake back home for the crappie. Their easy to make. All I did was take a pallet and remove a number of the slats and then screw those slats upright into the main frame of the pallet. Tie on some big rocks or concrete blocks and sink em upright and you have a stake bed pallet! You like???
