Some guys on lake link just here to be negative cuz they cant catch fish. I get ripped often for honest reports. I caught 17 nice crappie last week on Ripley on a jigging spoon, also a ton of 8-9 inch gills. It is a great lake.

Back when I first started fishing I didn't believe old timers and bass abductors catches, I fished with them both and was amazed to see how many fish they caught, never doubt a report, best bet is be nice and private message for advice.

Been following Hans reports for awhile, I have no doubt he is a good fisherman. For some people, it's hard to believe the catches made by some guys. I would not believe some of the things bass Abductor has done unless I've seen them with my own eyes.  Like the time he caught 30 walleye, smallmouth, largemouth , white and yellow bass  in around 50 casts into a culvert!

i could use a couple hundred jigs, heck, even 150. Could describe a few out of the bunch, lol

I call fake on 200 jigs, I bet you it was only 150. Over exaggerating on jigs like you do on Ripley catches  Ripley is hot this year in areas, never read a post from Ryder that would make me doubt him.  If a guy is willing to return 200 jigs they probably are a reliable source

I found a jig box with over 200 assorted jigs today.  Let me know what kind of box and I’ll make sure you get it back. 

I guess all my fish reports are fake so I won’t give one.

Was out today from sun up to sun down. Measured 12” of ice in one hole then the next hole I measured 15”. I had 3 tip ups in all day. 2 with shiners and one with a sucker. Drilled holes and was moving a tip up every hour or so. Ended up with 6 flags and only iced one small snake. Lots of hit n spits. No flags on the sucker if that helps anyone. Ripley has been pretty slow this season. Going to try somewhere else next weekend I think.

CONDITIONS
Sunny

ICE DEPTH
13 inches

AIR TEMP
6° - 10° F

Fished afternoon and evening yesterday on 13 inches of hard, see-through ice.  Action was slow during daylight but picked up after 4.  Nice quiet, clear evening until two younger guys with construction-type reflector vests and head lamps drove out on ATV through the middle of our tip ups and started drilling holes there, in the dark, making a lot of noise.  Then to top it off they fired up a generator and left it running on the ice our area.  There were only 2-3 groups on the whole lake but they wanted our spot.  We left, disgusted but not wanting a confrontation.  Never thought we'd see something like that on Ripley.  Their parents did not teach them to be considerate of others.  Hopefully this was just a one off...been ice fishing Ripley for many years and have never seen anything like it.

I think I found Hans Ryder good spot today.  The fish were slamming in 10 feet of water.  Thanks for the info Hans.
