5 fish caught | Lunker: 2lb Black Crappie using a Minnow
Fishing for crappie today was a little slow, i don't really know why. I was fishing with live minnows in about 20 to 30 feet of water around standing structure and lay downs. Did catch a couple a bass which tells me that the bass are in deeper water trying to stay warm until spring comes. Once again a slow day of fishing and nothing really special.
4 fish caught | Lunker: 3lb Largemouth Bass using a Strike King Lipless Bait
When we got on the water there was a decent bit of cloud cover and a slight breeze, but nothing to bad. That day i only caught four fish but my friend caught eleven, he was using some sort of creature bait. Most the day i was using a lipless crankbait and i was doing ok running it along deep points changing my retreives from a yoyo to a slow retreive back to the boat. I did take a break in the day and let my friend fish by himself but close to the end of the trrip i decided to start using a zoom trick worm( watermelon green flake color) because the water was murky and my friend was cacthing alot of fish on his creature set up.I was pitching on to any cover in deep water.(10 to 15 feet) I got a lot of bites fishing it like that but i just could not set the hook, so thats why i only caught one fish on the trick worm.
2 fish caught | Lunker: 3lb Largemouth Bass using a Buckeye Lures Swim Bait
it was a pretty cold day, i tried zoom worms and lizards but nothing seemed to work so i tied on a swim bait and had a couple of hits off of structure where i pulled two in. the water was nice and clear and the bass was probably around 20 feet.
