more fish than expected

more fish than expected - 04/22/21 12:17 AM

I couldn't expect another 100 fish day like my partner and I had over a week ago, but if you don't try you don't catch.
This day I went by myself to the area we slammed crappie, sunfish, yellow and white perch and a gold shiner. No go! The depth we caught fish was 3' or less so I stayed with that depth hoping to find fish nearby to where we caught fish after fish. This cove was just outside the area we did well:

In order to stay at mid-depth with lures, I had to go light and small: 1/32 -1/24 oz jigs and lures 2.5" or smaller. Here are a few that got slammed!:

pickerel caught on a beetle spin:

sunnie caught on a suspending crankbait:

decent crappie (at least for this lake):

Note: lure attached to the outside of the fish for my records and to display lures that caught fish.

79 fish from 10 am - 3 pm - not bad! If I didn't have fish in the live well to stock my pond with, I could have easily caught another 30.

Thanks. I was really surprised how well the bottom lure in the previous post - Flat Tail Chubby Grub - caught 4 species: even small sunfish, decent crappie, y. perch and 9" bass. In another lake by partner used the lure for the first time and did well with +9" crappie:

Over 38 fish were caught in 3 hours between the two of us.
