    Unhappy Crazy Fishing


    Fishing Lake Jem near Mount Dora with average depth of 20ft with a 28í hole

    After Ian we had a cold front- caught 3 in 3 consecutive days. 2 were in 18 fow near same structure and other was in 8 fow in weeds. Thought itís going to be a good season as itís been several years since I got any in October!

    Recent cold front- last Thursday got 1 in same 18 fow near structure. Itís been nearly a week and Fishing 2-3 times a day if not all day and not a nibble! Using minnows, jigs, road runners, dock shooting, fishing with 12í pole in the weeds 4-8 fow, done a little drifting, mostly sniping and slip bobber at structure.

    I canít find them! Usually get bluegills and bass with the minnow setup but they too are scarce. What the heck??

    Lake Jem is 11 acre private lake and in 2017 when I found out what a crappie was I literally could drift with a minnow at 15í and catch 1 or double up in 60í or less. I know we were coming off a drought so maybe thatís why so active at that time? Been dwindling ever since

    Any ideas? Sure would like 1 or 2 more to justify a fish fry for lunch.

    Thanks!

    Whatís up mister? Iíd like to give some insight but my boat hasnít moved but once since Ian came through. Withdrawalís. What I sometimes do is downsize and try to find something and then focus on that area. I use a lot of jigs less than 1/32. And no, they don't work well in the wind.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.
    Thanks Conrod thanked you for this post
