Mid October fun fishing at East Fork

Chad and Dad went out for a while Sunday. Very windy! Water was cloudy but caught a few fish. Few Bass, few Striper, and few a Crappie. Had fun – love the view of Fall setting in!

Found a little pocket where there was no wind and the Largemouth Bass were there! Action at the Fork! Love it when they’re biting or actually when you can find them!

Just a little report! God Bless! We’ll be in touch! Better days coming if Mother Nature cooperates!

Chad and Dad are back

This was a very nice Largemouth Bass caught by Chad – Wednesday evening after the Storm. Lake was about 4 feet high with lots of debris. Chad nailed this Hawg…and thought it was a Striper at first. Before I got home – Chad and Rodney Powers Crappie fished through all day through the storm. They caught a real nice mess of Crappie.

In the late evening Chad and Dad got into a few Hybrid Striper – just before dark. The break was on and the Hybrids were busting Shad everywhere.

Great time! Love it!

Great August weekend Bassin at East Fork Lake

Chad and Dad got out this weekend and really caught the Largemouth Bass despite the heavy wind and showers. We went Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning and the weather was the trigger. Bass were on! I like fronts this time of the year. Caught lots of Bass – and lots of little ones.

Chad finesse fished by using rubber and tiny crank-baits. He hammered the Bass and I caught several myself on different types of rubber and traditional crank-baits. These August Largemouth were finicky but catchable when you found their territory and holding pattern.

Wild life everywhere. Birds, Bald Eagle, Herons, Ospreys, etc.  Shad population everywhere. Water was 85 degrees, 90% clear and at Summer pool. Bass were biting but we haven’t fished for them much this year.

Had lots of fun with my fishing partner Chad. Bass beware when Chad and Dad find you. Smiles.

Looking forward to some great Fall fishing for East Fork Lake Largemouth. Especially with my good ole fishing partner, Chad.

Family affair slaying Crappie – after work

For the first time “in many years” the Roehm family (Rick, Paula, and Chad) got out together and found a little evening crappie action. Weather was nice, no wind, clear water, and had a few honey holes to go to. Chad led the pack as the fish finder, Paula learned a couple of new crappie techniques, and I guided and ran the trolling motor. We all caught fish and had a great time in just a couple of hours. Unforgettable experience! Loved it! Quality time as a family! Quality time catching Crappie!

Love fishing East Fork Lake – Crappie Capital of Ohio.

PS…Crappie were deep and shallow both. We caught fish all different ways.
