Fished from 0700 to about 230pm. tried in front of the fishing pier and got a lot of crappies most were around 9-10 inches. several decent gills and perch. Perch were pretty short. After that we zipped over to the bridge on 27 north end. got bigger crappie there. A couple were as big as 12 inches. all fish caught on minnows and tubes. best color was pink by far.

OK guys as it turns out I will be in Holcombe this weekend. I should have quite a bit free time especially in the morning and evenings. This works out pretty darn good for me. Smile I will not have a boat so ill be tethered to the shoreline. Im gonna try the fishing pier across from paradise shores.

If anyone else has any ideas where I can drop a line let me know please. Ill be fishing crappie walleye, whatever bites I guess. Im not familiar with Holcombe so if you can give me a general idea I would be grateful. Need some help guys. I know there are some local anglers that can put me on a few spots..

Thanks for the help

Cronk

PS thanks paneye for all the help so far.

Fished Pine Lake today. Found slab crappie and bluegill in shallow water in the middle of the lillypads from 10 am to noon, died down after that and got nothing but tiny perch for the next 2.5 hours. Kept 8 crappie and bluegill. Fished worms on a plain hook under a bobber.

Yes there is a pine lake connected to Holcombe. There is a bridge you go under just across the lake from Paradise Shores. It is a rusty metal bridge, the clearance is not very good. Be careful. All of Pine Lake is slow no wake. I've fished there with some success but I don't go there often.

Hey folks, I have a quick question. Is there a pine lake associated with Holcombe? like one of the back waters or fingers off the main lake?

The bite was off a bit yesterday but we still managed a few fish. Most walleye were in the slot or very small. A few nice crappie bit as well.

1/16th ounce jigs tipped with half a crawler worked best. Glow or blu/pink glow were the best colors. All fish came in about 12FOW. The algae bloom is at its peak which has the fish a bit off and staying nearer the deep channels than they were a week ago.

Fished Friday and Saturday and the walleye bite continues to be good. Got fish on both leeches and night crawlers. 1/8th or 16th ounce jigs were the very best with glow and blue or purple being the best colors.

Got many slot fish as well as a few fish for the pan. All fish came from 11-14 FOW. We targeted walleye but got a good number of crappie and catfish as well.

Went out with my wife and daughters this afternoon. Walleyes were biting pretty good! Caught 21 of them, all between 13 and 17 inches. All fish came on leeches except one on minnow. Thinking of going out tomorrow early before rest of the family wakes up and go for muskies. Any reports on muskies? Thanks!

Fished Friday and this morning, caught 3 pike on topwaters early then trolled cranks for walleye in the afternoon and evening ended with 8 under 14 and one put back that was 16. Caught a few more decent like this morning and lost a big toothy one early afternoon, going out again later through the evening

Fished Sunday targeting walleye and did pretty well. We fished with leeches in about 12 FOW just off the Jump channel. Jigging was most effective, with a very slow if not stop presentation being the best. Small 1/16th ounce jigs seemed important. Fish ranged from 10-23" with many being in the slot. Managed a nice meal of 13" fish with all others going back.

Depth of about 12 foot and timber were the keys to all of the spots that we found fish, a good locator is a must. The fish were right on the timber, casts more than 3-4 foot off the timber rarely got bites.

This pattern should last several weeks until the water starts to cool down. Right now water temps are in the upper 70's or higher.

There were good numbers of crappie mixed in. We got a few, and saw a bunch on the locator, but we were using leeches, so success on crappie was limited.

Just a recap to my earlier report...most action was in 6 to 12 fow with a few of the muskies shallower than that. Topwaters and minnow baits both straight and jointed got all our musky action....including the one that tried to eat my planer board(call it a big topwater I guess). I mainly fished from Big Swedes to the Jump River area.
