Sorry I haven't sent the pics yet, I cannot find the case for my memory card that I need to plug it into the computer. The pics are on my phone still and hopefully I'll find that case soon. Sunday was another fine day of fishing. Caught a lot of fish from 16-17fow and just off the bottom, but they were all pretty small. Then I figured it out; big crappies and big perch were slamming the lures if I jigged them about 1 1/2 to 2 feet off the bottom. They would come from the botttom like the smaller ones. The smaller fish wouldn't come up that far too often, but the big ones loved to. Aggressive jigging to bring them in, then pause for 5-10 seconds, then SLOWLY raise the lure about 4-6 inches, then slam! Fish on! Saturday we were on Ann Lake for the gills, Sunday we were on Rush for the crappies and perch. Once again, we were all alone on Rush-nobody within 3/4 mile of us.
Hey Sand Burr, you guys going to Rush for any late ice? Let me know. Also, I have to check out this Sandy Lake thing sometime. Looks like most of you guys are from that area and speak highly of it. Maybe we'll film a show up there.
I am actually thinking about heading up to McGregor Saturday morning for a morning. I cant say the Big Sandy is the best fishery around but its been known to produce a time or two. Rush is definatly on the agenda for late ice. If Sandy falls through it might be this weekend.
