Title: Ready, willing......
Post by: ctom on 11/19/20 10:42 UTC
Crappies were still there this morning and seemed more than able to chow on the 1.5" thump-its. Nice fish for the most part again. The bite window has narrowed a hair but that may be due to the dark moon right now. Junebug/chartreuse tail is still the dominant color. Going to do it again tomorrow in spite of a front supposedly coming thru later today. As they say, gotta gettem while the gettin is good. Stay safe everyone!

Nice!!!  I'll be fishing tomorrow.  The winds are supposed to lay and the high temp will be around 66.  Definitely a day for fish and fishermen alike.

Man, were they ever willing today. Lots of 12" + fish. My buddy kept a few for his dinner tonight.

Yesterday they had a cold front predicted to roll thru overnight and a wind shift to the NW which is most certainly not a good wind for where we're fishing. 35 degrees when we got there and not much warmer upon our departure, but no ice in the guides. We managed to cast to the sweet sot as often as not so that was frustrating, but when we hit it, it was fish on. The fish we kept were all 12" or better however we threw back maybe thirty in the 11 1/2" to 10 1/2" range and actually caught nothing smaller. When I rounded the corner and got a face full of wind I almost said we'll go back home. Cold, wind, in the throes of a cold front....things looked bleak but how different the bite was.

Have a great weekend everyone. Stay healthy!

15 degrees this morning so maybe yesterday wasn't so bad afterall. I'd have been picking lots of ice from the guides this morning.
