Title: 2017/2018 grand finale!
Post by: 30inthabucket on February 15, 2018, 08:16:00 AM
Got out the last 2 days. Fished late morning until dark on tue. Started slow but got pretty good towards dark. Me and a buddy ended up with 35 crappie, 2 eyes and 5 keeper gills. Back out wed at daylight with Bryan78 and another friend joined us later. It was on fire. Had a limit of crappie by 1030. Caught and released prob 15 to 20 more keepers. Also had 10 nice gills. Both guys I was with got their limit too. Switched over to saugeye and started marking em right off but couldn't get bit on any color pimple or vibe. Dug through the tackle box and put on a tiny little jigging shad rap in black/silver. Got bit almost immediately. As it got later in the day the eyes really fired up. Ended up catching 8 keepers(I only kept 6) and at least a half dozen shorts. Limit+ of crappie and eyes in the same day! I have never seen a bite like that. It was awesome.
I'm not going to post location and hesitated to even post report because I don't want people trying to get out after today. The ice is melting top and bottom and after 60 and rain today I would not try to get back on. As mentioned in other posts someone had to be rescued last night. And he was in what's usually one of the safest areas. I am done for the year... but what a way to go out!  ;D

Congrats on a strong finish Aaron. Had fun fishing a new spot and at least catching a couple keepers. See you on the docks.
