    Default Local Lake; 11/13/14

    Temps are going down fast! We launched yesterday around 8:30 am with the air temp just above freezing. Water is still in the mid to upper 40's, so I knew this was going to be a challenge. Scouted several areas for signs of fish on the sonar and found some, here & there.

    First half of the morning however was not very productive. Around 10 am things started happening. We caught probably around 30 - 40 crappie & yellow perch. Both species today were extremely shallow, which was unexpected. Fishing through dense remaining weeds was difficult, but once we knew the fish were there, we kept at it:

    The crappie were not as large as I had hoped, but the perch were very decent. We pulled off around 2 pm. Most productive today was slow rolling 1/16 oz. jigs dressed with straight tailed plastics in pink/chartreuse combos. Tried my Roadrunners several times with no takes and the weeds kept fouling them, so I resorted to the straight tails instead.

    Beautiful late fall day. Snow was predicted last night though, but we only got a dusting. Hopefully the weather will moderate over the next few days to give us a last shot at open water.

    Very nice catch. Are the perch as tasty as the crappie?. Never seen or caught one.

    Remember, one mans "poor" catch could be another man's "great" catch.

    It's been many years since I've eaten any. I'm strictly a CPR fisherman these days. But back in the day, they were definitely a sought after meal.
