MOON PHASE (23%)
Waning Crescent

Got out after work for 4 hr. Couldn't find big panfish till I reached the east side. Some 7 to 8 inch gills there. The 9 inch gills seem to be gone from the lake, havnt caught any in 2 years. Got some 11 to 12 inch bass shallow, only one legal size. So I paddle trolled the yak  off the outside weed line with soft silver swimbaits. Best depth was around 14 ft. Was a bass about every 10 min doing that. Some were decent size. Released the fish today

Fished Sunday 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. Caught a mixed bag of smaller bass and gills. The most interesting part though was when I first started I was mapping the lake with my new Helix 9 and found this. Ha

Fished this lake for the first time this morning from 5-8am. Tried some swim jigs on the lilly pads with no success. Switched to senkos and managed 4-5 bass around 13-15". 

That's actually a pretty good day for me...none of this "15 bass in 2 hours" stories for me.

Fished from 9-3 today. First time on this lake. Started at the lily pads on the northwest side of the lake with no luck and made my way around each dock. Bass were cruising the shallows before noon and deeper after noon. I caught 4 LMB on 6 casts under/around the same dock. Ended up getting a fish under most docks. All were between 10-13". After the fishing in the shallows dried up I drifted the deeper portions of the lake (between 10-20 FOW) and cast ned rigs and texas rigs. Ned rigs were the clear winner. A jig head and a gulp 4" worm were the only thing the bass touched. 

Tried tossing out daredevil spoon and Mepps spinner for pike but nothing doing. Anyone with info on how to catch summer pike?

Had a couple hours before I had to pick up the kids from school, so snuck out for 2.5 hours mid day.


SOOO MANY CARP ON THE SURFACE! Everywhere! Gar too! Would be a bow-fishing dreamland out there right now.


That said, made one trolling motor pass around the lake. Caught a bunch of undersize LM...8-13", but had two that were 15"+


Summer pattern is setting in, the bite will get good now.

We got out for two hours last night. The action was pretty good. We got 15 bass between the two of us. Every fish was between 9-14 inches. Beautiful lake!

Has any one ever ventured to the small body of water north of ashippunn lake ice fishing. Might be all spring fed and not safe ice or maybe its to shallow?
