That is all good news. I just picked up a new locator and I am really chomping the bit to get back on the water!
What is the water temp? I would imagine it won't be long before the lake rolls.
The slab crappie starting ot get hungry, doing good over shallower wood out of the wind, primarily 6ft to 2ft on cloudier days. should improve with the colder temps coming soon. Bass action very good, slow plastics or husky jerks. Walleyes ok if you got the time or patience to locate. got 2 over 20in floating small suckers over weeds. hard to keep small pike from biting tho.
Watched Waters & Woods fishing show on cable last Saturday morning, and John Gillespie and guide Josh Tiegen hammered the LM Bass on Purple Wacky rigged worms setup, and Texas rigged plastic worms , targeting schools in deeper weeds. They fished Sept. 6 th. You may be able to go online and watch this Episode on John Gillespies Waters and Woods Website ! Josh Tiegen says this will keep going for next few weeks through Oct. on the Pike Chain .Some of the Bass were in the 4-6 lb. range !
A bit stormy and rainy this morning. Waited out the rain and thunder to pass by. Caught a few northern yesterday and today on Buskey Bay. One 29" and a 26", plus some "snakes". Not much success beyond that. Caught a couple small panfish on worms, but no action minnows.
Hopefully we can find some crappie tomorrow. Had one lonely but nice crappie last Thursday night just as the sun set and the mosquitoes moved in then the sonar went blank.
Thank you to the guy who actually slowed down when passing. Very appreciated. Plus a great lesson to the young children.
My boy caught a handful of 14-16" LMB while fishing for muskie, but no muskie. Went out last night to land a couple crappie but have yet to get any action, other than a LMB and a few small buegill. Seems LMB will hit about anything here, crappie minnows, jigs, muskie lures....see picture.
Foggy this morning until well after 9am. No real success this morning either on the crappie minnows. A bluegill, a couple LMB and a SMB. Try it again this late afternoon.
Thanks for the info! My son and I have been hitting Millicent and Hart lakes pretty hard so far. We will take your advice and spend some time on the other lakes. Have to break out the minnow bucket next week!
Have you heard any word on future restocking efforts for walleye?
