Cloudy in afternoon rain in the morning
47 degrees air temp
No wind for a change

Can't believe that it is a day after Christmas and we are still fishing open water, who would think that this would be happening. But we need to take what we get and make the best of it. Would really like to see ice, but I am not sure that we are going to this year as we are looking at another week and a half around 40 degrees.

Since it is warm lets take the kayak out and go fishing, why don't we. Well it rained all last night and was raining this morning and turned over to drizzle and it was time to hit the water. Today was a totally different day compared to what we have been having. No wind at all and the water was like glass. Haven't fished in these conditions in so long that it was a little strange to say the least.



Well today is going to be Loby Baits day to fish and all I can say is look out fish as here I come. Tied on a 1/32 oz jig and started with the Loby Baits Stoni in the lime green color and immediately starting catching fish. First place I stopped the Vexilar was lit up like a Christmas tree and the fish were going crazy.



I was fishing water around 18 feet and the bigger Crappies were all suspending around 12-15 feet of water. One thing that I did notice was that if the fish were suspending I would raise the jig to them and these fish were always larger fish.




The first spot I fished was only there for 10 minutes and caught at least 15 right away before I broke the line on a fish. Then I tried the Loby Baits Stoni in the pink translucent and was able to use this one piece of plastic for the rest of the trip and caught at least 50 crappies before it started getting dark.




If the action started to slow a little I would just move over 10 yards or so and setup again and the catching would start again. There were so many fish in this area that it makes it hard to want to fish any where else. This part of the lake I think is the deepest and holds more concentrations of fish than the other areas.



I have been fortunate to be able to get out 4 times in the last week and a half and hopefully a couple more times before the first of the year. If it does finally get cold here I hope that it does it fast and create enough ice to be able to walk on it. Would hate to not be able to get on the water because there wouldn't be enough ice. But I will take this open water as long as it wants to stay.



Let's talk about the baits that were used. This won't be very long as there were only 2 colors that were used. Rigged on a 1/32 oz unpainted jighead I used the Loby Baits Stoni in the Lime Green and Pink Translucent colors. One thing that is great about the Loby Baits is that they last through a number of fish and that is great for a plastic bait. The only baits I lost were to a broken line. The longevity of these baits makes them very worth while and a value to the angler.



Loby Baits offers a wide variety of Micro Plastic baits for the angler and if you want to put numbers of fish onto your hooks, make sure to get yourself some Loby Baits and enjoy catching fish like I do. Loby Baits is a bait that all anglers should have and these baits are going to catch you numbers of fish and are very exciting to fish with. Give them a try.

All of the latest reports have come from a small lake in Massachusetts north of Boston....thinking on trying a different lake on Friday...crappies there are bigger but not sure if they are going to be easy to find or not....haven't fished there in the winter...
