First time using a micro crank bait and it worked really well when creek fishing. The bluegills and rock bass were hammering it.
You sure it was 37 and not 36 crappies?
Picked up 37 crappie and around 80 gills the last 2 nights after work. Also 8 largemouth, 2 pike and a couple perch. All fish caught at outer weed edge in 10 to 18 ft of water. Kept 20 panfish total the two nights to stock up the freezer, all were 10 inch crappie and 8 to 9 inch gills. Western Waukesha County lake
Poking around some different creeks in Southeastern Wisconsin - Kind of tired of the Mighty Rubicon. Anyways, I had a good day fishing on this unnamed one, but I hooked myself.
click the link above to watch. I kept the video short and simple for yall????
I was out Friday on a lake I have not been on in two years. Same as every other lake. Just working the brake line from 10 to 12 feet. Did I do well. Yes ! Now, as to how many fish I keep. In my last 4 trips. 3 men in the boat, 32 kept, I took none. 2 men in the boat, 60 crappies caught and a bunch of gills, 14 crappies and 3 gills were kept, I took none, WHY, I hate cleaning fish, I am no good at it. 2 men in the boat, 80 crappies caught and a ton of gills, 10 crappies and 4 gills were kept, I took none. 2 men in the boat, a ton of gills were caught, 2 were 10, a lot of 8 to 9's, 20 crappies were caught, 20 were kept, 10 crappies and 10 gills. I took them home. WHY, because the WARDEN was yelling at me, we never have any fish to eat. It took me almost 2 hours to clean the them and clean up the mess I made.
Best of luck to all. P.S. to the gentlemen who said, I was the biggest threat to the fish in lake Geneva. Thanks for the complement. but I have been on there only once in the last two years.
Same binding problem with multi models of Shimano reels, including brand new out of box over the years. Sahara/Spirex/Sadona owned them all. Cleaned/oil/greased...same thing...There is a reason they are known as Shibondos when i looked online. Went with Pfluger and never a problem. Just my 2 cents am sure others will disagree. I do have some backup shibondos if your interested....
I didn't keep any of the fish caught on this trip... or maybe I did... I'm not sure what side to be on here. Anyways, I was fishing the MIGHTY RUBICON between Hartford and Slinger and thought I would be able to wade the whole stretch, but it was too swampy. I did find one good hole and caught some nice ones. Also, what do you do when your reel starts to tighten up? (not reel smoothly anymore) Here's the video of the swampy adventure
You must be one of those people who like to stir up an argument just because you can. If you read Hero's post, it states that 25 " would have been kept". He did not say he was keeping all fish caught! I agree that too many are greedy and don't think about conservation, however let's not automatically think bad of everyone. Best to read the posts all the way through before you make yourself out to be the judge and executioner!
