Outside 47 Degrees. November 26. I was telling my neighbor that crappie fishing right now is great. He took my word on it and went fishing. He caught a five gallon bucket of Crappie. Guys if your getting board around the house go after them Crappie, I dont care how cold it is go after them. Suggest go to the ponds or lakes that you fish during the summer. They will be deeper than during the summer. Locate wth your depth finder anchor there over the top of them. I never us minnows in Idaho because its againist the law. Crappie jigs tipped with niblets in the white, bye berkley. Start retrieving slowly from bottom. Going out again this coming tuesday in December. Come on guys give it a try.

Must be like transfering aquatic plants.. They don't want to introduce a new species to the lake.. Only guessing.

Slabman I'm fishing C.J. Strike. The fish are running a little bigger than I was catching during the summer. Between 8 and 11 inches. I live in Mountain Home and 30 miles from the back waters of CJ Strike Dam. Yes I have fished Bully creek there in Oregon. I haven't fish there during the winter. I'm going out Tuesday Dec. 2 willl give a fishing report that after noon on this sight. Do you want to go fishing slabman call me in mountain home. Kenny Jones on Desert Duck Rd. Find me in the phone book. We'll fish out my Jet Boat.

I forgot about C.J.Strike. A fiend e-mailed me some pics of a catch earlier this year of some nice fish from there. That Snake River is a fish factory.
Thanks for the invite, I may take you up on that sometime. If you're ever over my way I'll return the favor. These Brownlee fish bite late into the winter unless there is a drastic water fluctuation, either up or down. That usually shuts them off until Spring. I'm 40 miles east of Baker City. My elk season ends tomorrow so I may have some time to fish. Always lots of chores around here.

I use to live in Utah years ago, moved there from Mississippi and I couldn't believe they had a regular fishing season.
I was use to fishing year round...lol.. that blew me a way. Fisherman would be almost shoulder to shoulder around the lake on opening day of fishing.
Go get'em Ken, Your the man!

I know where your coming from! Did some verticle/dropshot style fishing with shiners and last week in Georgia and had fun feeling the bump.. Though I would rather throw a jig at em'. Sometimes cold fronts make you have to slow down too much to swim a jig.

Just fishing--- Your right people release there live minnows and introduce fish that don't belong there. Theres people out there that don't give a d*** about polluting there fishing waters. Some on this sight may be some one that don't care. That's a shame. We would like to have more opportunitys fishing for walleye. People cry against it because they like fishing for trout. I cut up a 5lb trout for bait, For sturgon. A guy I had with me was from back East. He said what the **** you doing. I'm using it for cut bait. He says man we don't have that big of trout back home and your cutting it up for bait. Yes, he caught fish.
