Fishin Fam

thanks as always for the tips and advice. 

One of these trips we should try and get together and share a few cold ones and a boat. 

Good luck rest of your stay.

In two days caught basically nothing. Admittedly not the greatest fishermen ever. Didn't see anyone else catching anything either, though. I think the water temps were high 60's. Leeches are gone up there.

Heading to Plum next week and wondering what’s the water temp and baits to use. 

Crawlers, leeches or minnows??

thanks in advance

Made it out with a couple of close buddies yesterday.

Found some active fish in the deep weed edges, around 15 to 20 feet. 

Caught some pannies on plastics and crawler halves.

Shallower weed lines didn’t seem to hold many fish. 

Was a really nice morning with good company.

Just returned from a trip with Jim, fished Plum 07-14 and 07-15. We found the crappies in the weeds and on the edges. Took some searching but when we found them, the average size was impressive. All fish caught on Fin-s fish plastics with chartreuse 1/16 ounce jigs. Best depths were 8ft in the weeds or 15-20 ft off the edges with a very slow retrieve. Got bonus smallies along with many snake pike. Never fished here during summer, only in October and during ice season. Great time with a great friend!

I’ve posted these before, however, both pics show fish that are not unusual to catch on Plum. 

As touched on earlier, the smallmouth fishery is really good. They gorge themselves on crayfish, and the crayfish population is finally in check.

I’ve actually caught smallmouth, with live crayfish hanging out of their mouth, they are definitely eating machines - just have to know where to find them.

Totally agree with the last 3 posts. Plum is an anglers lake with the bennifits of an awesome water sport lake. The smallies are beasts. Walleyes are there. But can be tough at times. Find a weed edge. Or drift the humps. Walleyes are there. My June trip consisted of 30+ northern. Handfuls of panfish, 2 musky. Not a walleye to be found. Keep learning the lake and next time it will be different. Can’t wait until Sept. btw I was attempting to target walleyes.

Totally agree with what Brent said. While I've never been able to find the slab crappies out there the SMB are worth a trip. 18"-21"ers are common, especially in Fall, and they're shaped like footballs. The 1st Fall I fished Plum I respooled to 10 lb test, they will break you off on their power runs with anything else. The 1 fish, 18" size limit has turned Plum into a trophy destination.

Plum is crystal clear, 50 feet deep, with lots of rock bars / drop offs, and not a ton of cabbage or weeds. 

It definitely takes some time to learn!

The above said, once you learn Plum, it truly is a quality fishing opportunity with lots of trophies swimming around. 

Once you figure Plum out, you’ll really enjoy it - just like anything else, it does take some time!

The Crappies on Plum are bigger than average, you will be hard pressed to catch one under 12 inches, with many that are 15” plus.  Smallies are good too - they’re just tanks.
