Bite was slow, slowest I've seen in awhile. ice was alright 6" where we were. Wind was ruff but jiggn junkie and I fished 7 to dark, we managed 8 throw backs, 4 keepers, 1 was a 27 inch hog, came on a jaw jacker.

General Discussion / Thats it, till next year.

Well I fished my last time on the ice tonight, rains coming tomorrow, family obligations next two days, so I retired my gear. Fished Alum one last time, caught a few smaller eyes, crappie, and white bass, what a beautiful day to end it on, I was fishing with a long sleeve t shirt on. This year ended up being a great year, met a lot of good people on the ice, accomplished my main goal of catching eyes from Alum, nothing real big, 4 lbs being the biggest from the lake, but had fun doing it, and stumbled upon some good perch and crappie spots. Hope everyone else enjoyed the season as much as I did, till next year.

Alum Creek / Finally
« on: March 09, 2015, 11:24:37 AM »
The fish finally turned on! Started out with w flurry of crappie, in a short 1.5 hours at first light we caught 15 or so crappie 10 of which were 10 to 11". We moved out to deeper water and hammered 10 to 11" perch and big white bass, I think around 30 perch and 6 white bass between 4 guys. Then around 3pm caught a couple of eyes deep, as we followed them shallower we continued to catch them ending up in 16fow. 2 of the guys we fished with had yet to catch an eye threw the ice, I believe they both caught 3, 1 keeper a piece. I think and I know he will correct me if I'm wrong but I think Dave caught 6 with 1 keeper. I ended up with 9, 5 keepers the biggest was 4lbs. All in all it was the best day on Alum of the year, and I got to fish with a group of great guys, and Dave ;) This was my last guide trip of the year and I would say a great one. 1st pic is what I took home after my client took home whats in second pic. Good luck and be safe.

Alum Creek / Your kids bored?
« on: March 04, 2015, 05:57:18 PM »
My son wasn't off the bus for 5minutes, I'm bored dad. Grabbed a hand auger, vex, two rods, and a tub of waxxies, lets go out infront of the boat ramp next to the house. I will let the picture tell you the rest of the story.

Alum Creek / 3/3/15
« on: March 03, 2015, 03:40:00 PM »
Fished from 630am till the rain hit around 2pm caught 1 eye and 1 crappie, 4 guys and we fished 12fow to 46fow. I don't know what Dave caught his crappie on, but the eye I caught was on a blue/silver pimple tipped with a minnow head. Marked a lot more fish just couldn't get them to hit. Gonna hit it hard again tomorrow. Good luck and be safe.

Alum Creek / Works done
« on: March 02, 2015, 05:23:57 PM »
Now that I have located and caught eyes threw the ice at Alum Dave is ready to fish. We are gonna fish Tuesday morning before the rain moves in, hopefully they will be fired up. I hope he has paid attention and catches a few, we'll see, it's hard to teach an old dog new tricks. Next time we go to Erie I'm not gonna feel bad I always out fish him and let him catch the fish, I'm gonna have to out fish him there too, I'll give him a preview tomorrow. ;)

General Discussion / Warmer weather coming
« on: February 28, 2015, 08:35:14 PM »
I think with this rain and warmer weather coming in the near future the bite should really fire up. The run off and melting should add oxygen, and with the spawn approaching the fish should be ready to really feed. Just make sure you're playing it safe, the ice is going to get a lot weaker. I always move closer to the spawning areas and mouths of coves this time of year, the fish should be starting to stage for the spawn. Another thing I will do is go a little larger with my lures, this time of year the fish seem to feed on larger stuff to get there calories for the up coming spawn. Anyone else do something different? Just trying to put some ideals out there for the beginner to think about, hopefully it will help someone put a couple more fish in the bucket. 

Buckeye lake / 2-27-15
« on: February 28, 2015, 08:08:45 AM »
Had a good day today, 20 crappie 11 to 12", 10 gills in the 9 to 10" range, 3 catfish, 2 throw back eyes, and 1 5lb eye. Fish were caught on a verity of lures and bait, but what I thought was out of the ordinary was the crappie, most were caught dead sticking a minnow 1 ft. under the ice. we weren't marking them but they were there, if you try it make sure your rod is secure, JiggnJunkie almost lost his rod a few times. The big eye came on a big gold jigging rap tipped with a minnow head. We were fishing in 6fow, water was pretty stained. Good luck and be safe.

Alum Creek / EYES!!!!! 2/26/15
« on: February 27, 2015, 05:33:55 AM »
Finally after a long search we finally found some eyes. Fished with Kernan, he lost 2 missed about 6 hits, I missed bout 5 hits but I finally caught an eye. John lost 1 that would go over 5lbs. It was a brutal walk in and out of the area we fished, not to mention the cold , snowy, windy conditions yesterday, but in the end all worth it. Got an 18 incher and a cat, both came in 24 fow but had hits in 46 fow and in 19 fow. All hits were on a blue/silver and Green/silver pimple with a subtitle action, one fella fishing near us was dead sticking pimples with 2 minnows and got 2 hits and loss a 3 pounder at the hole. Good luck and be safe.

Alum Creek / Any reports?
« on: February 19, 2015, 03:27:14 PM »
I haven't been on the ice in a week, just wondering if anyone has been doing any good? I know mullygun got on a descent crappie bite, but has anyone else found anything? Not asking for your secret spot, just wondering if the bite has picked up. I have Friday thru Monday to fish but might just fish sat. and sun. I think weather wise those will be the best days. I have a couple more spots I want to try for eyes, and will post if I get on them, probably will have to stop by Kroger for some fish the way things have been going. Good luck and be safe.

General Discussion / Expo was a good time!
« on: February 16, 2015, 02:06:25 PM »
It was a great show in my opinion, met a lot of good people, and got to see some of the newest stuff to hit the market. I learned a lot from the seminars, including mine ( that I get real nervous when all eyes are on me). One lure that stood out was the pulse blade baits, John has really out done himself. I would like to thank Nate for the great shirt ;D nah man I will get it back to you next time I see you. I hope I get the chance to fish with a few of the guys I met. Until then good luck and be safe.

General Discussion / Expo this weekend
« on: February 12, 2015, 06:00:43 PM »
Dropped some stuff off to Dave today for the Fishing Expo, looks like he filled the building with some great vendors. I will be there all three days helping out and speaking if anyone wants to say hey. First time speaking infront of a group, little nervous. Hope to see a lot of you icers  I know and to meet those I don't. I can't wait to hear the stories, should be more stories than a library there, we all are fishermen ::)

Alum Creek / The search will continue
« on: February 11, 2015, 08:46:42 AM »
I have to take a few days off the ice, family obligations, and I'm speaking at the expo. I won't be able to walk on water again till next Thursday, but when I do it will be another trip searching for the non existent saugeye in Alum. I haven't just spent this year looking for them, but 25 trips last year and not an eye to show for it. I've only been out about 10 times this year and caught a few so things are looking up. I ask you, am I the only one not catching eyes on this lake. Do you have any suggestions for me? There are not a lot of people fishing Alum or posting on it, has everyone given up on it? Most days its a ghost town, I fish 12 plus hours a day and hardly every see another soul. I just can't walk away, in the past I have fished Buckeye and Indian as much as Alum and did good, most of the time pulling limits from those lakes and I know I can catch fish there now, but I just have too find them on alum. You would not believe the hours I have spent chasing eyes on Alum just to pull a skunk. O well I guess that's why they call it fishing and not catching. Please if you have any suggestions, besides walk away, feel free to post them, maybe there is something I haven't thought of or tried. I know one day the stars will align and I will get on a good school, until then you can find me on Alum, looking at my vex, and hoping one will bite. Good luck and be safe.
