Coming up again this year to target crappie. Last year I was told by some locals to set my hummingbird water offset to -2 and my highlight to 4 feet (this was more to avoid possible stumps on humps) based on water levels. Wondering if I can stick with this based on current water levels or if I should go with -1 or -3 or what have you. Any crappie insight would be appreciated but we’re coming regardless haha thanks for the input on the settings again! Will post a fishing report when I leave!
Check out Johnson’s Resort on Moore’s Bay when you’re up. New owners have really done a fantastic job. Great location, great docks, great people. If you haven’t been there in a while, stop by.
Thanks to everyone who provided advise earlier this year about the lake and lodgings. We are staying at Sisko's in early August. We are pretty stoked.
Thanks for all the reports....coming up in 3 weeks.....been doing this for 25 yrs. just wondering about the levels some years we could hardly get our boats in, but some years not so bad.
Thanks for the info BIG CHIP.
I'm still learning about this place. I fished the last 2 years close to this time of year and the water was at or near FULL POOL. As I remember I think there was a lot of rain so I guess it depents on the weather at the time. I appreciate the feedback from all.
The lake is a down about 20 in at the most right now. This is the usual draw down for the season this time of the year. They would like to go until winter having three foot to 7 foot depending on what the Lake Property association and the DNR decide. I haven't heard what the typical drawdown will be for this winter.
WOW. Whats up with that? A foot and a half seems like a lot??? is this normal this time of year? They expecting a lot of rain or something??
I did look at the report at JENKS BAIT and it does say down 2-3 feet. Maybe they meant 2-3 inches?? Glad to hear. I was wondering if someone forgot to shut the faucet :)
Ecelenergy has not updated the level since 09-04.
Percher. Been on the Chip for the last week. I have not noticed the water level receding.
