  4. Details: Tiger Muskie

    Haven't posted in awhile but I've been active. Slow rolling a spinnerbait last November and lucked into this monster. "Fish of 10,000" casts only ...more took about 3 😂😂. Heck of an animal, 39" and safely released after a few pics

      Nice fish.
  5. Details: Bluegill Sunfish

    One of 94 keeper bluegill we caught today on a couple of different beds. Bay we caught them in had everything a bluegill needs: soft gravelly bank, wooden cover, ...more and very shallow water. Water temp 82*, air 88*.

  6. Details: Bluegill Sunfish

    Got on a bluegill bed today on green river lake and absolutely tore them apart. Started off crappie fishing and caught 4 shorts before moving to a spot we felt good ...more about for bluegill. After searching around a bit we got on a bed in about 4 fow by a gravelly bank. The bed was about 5 feet across and it was a guaranteed hit if you stuck your worm on it, slammed 60-some keeper bluegill before giving

  7. Details: White Crappie

    Total SLAB my dad caught while we were slamming postspawn crappie at green river lake last week. Water clarity was about 4-5' which is ultra clear for GRL, fish ...more were wanting all natural colored jigs that day like pumpkin and shad patterns. Picked up the most bites vertical jigging, slowly rising and dropping the lure, fish would hit it on the fall. 82* air, 74* water temp. Wound up with 14 keepers

      This one was clearly just off a bed, as you can tell from its torn up fins and tail
  8. Details: White Crappie

    Cold front came through this weekend and backed the crappie out to the front of creeks. Still managed to stick 32 keepers over brush at the mouths of feeder creeks ...more despite the fact that the water temp dropped from 57 to 51 in two days. These crappie were still feeding hard and amazingly aggressive. Should be in full spawn within the next couple of weeks.

      Also, males are starting to show a touch of darker color on their bellies. Get ready for the spawn!!

      Air temp 32 degrees in the morning, warmed up to 43 by the afternoon
    4. Seth McDowell 0
      They hit a variety of colors as well, which shows how hard they're feeding up now

  9. Details: White Crappie

    Slab we caught today in a big submerged tree, fishing 6 ft deep in 8 fow. Fish are starting to move up during this warm trend, steep banks with a 45 degree drop ...more and structure along them are producing the most fish for us. Here the wind had blown baitfish up against this bank, and of course, the crappie followed. Get out and fish the prespawn, caught around 40 fish each of the last three days

      I haven't targeted them before, I know it's supposed to be some of the best Muskie fishing south of the Ohio river though
