Fished Sweeney Sunday afternoon for some crappies, The wind kicked up around 4 and made things kinda chilly but we did manage a few fish. Only 4 rigs left when we got there at 3. I don't know if it was busier earlier in the weekend but I was relieved. The lot was full with 4-5 rigs parked along both sides of the road last year for opener.
Fished 3-6 FOW with minnows and moved around quite a bit. Not drastic moves but 20-30 feet, anchor, fish, 3-4 fish, then pull anchor and move another 20-30 feet and anchor again.
Not a bad day but I would like to see some more size, will be a great lake to take the kids to in another week or two!
Water temp varied from 49-53 with the most fish being found in the warmer water. I think the first crappies are just starting to come in so the weeks to come should be fun. Another local lake in the same area was still in the upper 40's so I think it will be another week or two at least before the deep, clear lakes get there.
One last note, we did catch a few bigger perch (!!??) and they were relatively clean. All the perch we had caught in the years past were small and FULL of black spots! Maybe a sign of a shift in fish...???
All in all it was a good weekend! I hope all caught some fish and were safe. Season is open, GAME ON!
