I still call East Fork Lake the Crappie capital of Ohio. Bid White Crappie and several real nice Black Crappie. Chad and Dad had a great time catching Slab Crappie Sunday – Feb. 19, 2017. Colored water 40% visibility. Water temp 45 degrees. Moderate wind. Ambient temp 55 degrees. The slabs were huge!
Also added a nice shot of a beaver that I think was protecting the nest. Look close.
Chad and Dad caught some nice Crappie this week-end. Dad caught this nice Musky while fishing for Crappie.
Two good ones
Hand size Blacks
Chad and Dad made it happen this past weekend January 28, 29 – 2017. Saturday we caught 35. Sunday (in a snowstorm) we caught 24. Notice the little grin on Chad’s face. He never gives up. Had to fight with him to come in during the snowstorm. Had a great time! You have to love it! We do.
It was windy Saturday and fairly calm Sunday, Ambient temp both days was around 34-39 degrees. Water is still about 75% clarity. Water temp 42 degrees.
Chad and Dad made it happen Sunday, January 15, 2017. We brought home 34 real nice Crappie. We love it! East Fork was calm. Water clarity was 50%. Water Temp 41 degrees. Caught real nice Black Crappie. Fished for 4 hours.
After we got home
Making it happen!
Rodney Powers and Chad were coming in yesterday from Crappie fishing – caught a picture of the pair of Bald Eagles at East Fork Lake. Mother nature’s finest beauty.
Chad insisted on going Sunday and defied the odds. Had on his “new” heated socks. It was 15 degrees out – and Old man Winter didn’t stop Chad. Crappie were biting! To cold for Dad. Brought home a real nice mess of fish. Real nice Black Crappie and some whites. I lectured him about it being to cold. Didn’t pay attention – went anyway! Had a great time! Said the old Beaver was working overtime and saw some real beautiful species of Ohio waterfowl.
Dad got to enjoy some fantastic Christmas Crappie fishing again this year – with fishing partner Chad. Chad and Dad got into a real nice mess of Christmas Crappie in East Fork Lake’s ice cold 45 degree water. Clarity was about 70%. No minnows! All came on jigs! Some at 4 ft. depth – some at 10-12′ depth.
