East Fork Lake fun fishing

Little crank-bait reaps dividends. This happens sometimes when Chad and Dad are fishing on the Fork.

Hybrid Striper – East Fork Lake

Evening at East Fork. Chad caught the first 15 inch Hybrid Striper of the year. Nice fish but notice the setting. Love it! Thanks for enjoying life with Chad and Dad in Southwestern Ohio.

First Summer evening at East Fork Lake – Chad and Dad

Wednesday evening Chad and Dad finally got over to East Fork Lake. We launched the old Skeeter and as soon as we got there the race was on! Chad didn’t throw a Crappie jig one single time. Keeping Chad off Crappie is the hard part. Rodney Powers and Chad have been hammering the Crappie for over a month. Anyway…

We caught a variety of fish – Musky, Bass, and Striper. Running and gunning from spot to spot was our tactic. No real good pattern. We simply caught fish on everything everywhere we went. We ended up getting on the  Hybrid Striper and finished our evening catching these. Lots of fast action. Only had (1) over 15″.

Water was cloudy. 75 degrees. Lake is up 3 feet. Lots of fun in a few hours in the evening. Sunset was awesome. Great place to unwind from the daily grind.

Glad to be back. See you there! Thanks for stopping by the Blog.

Prime time for Largemouth Bass – (maybe a Musky?)

Everything is right. Water is right. Time of year is right. Water clarity is right. Water temp 75 degrees. Pre-spawn period and very aggressive Largemouth Bass. Chad and Dad went to the Fork Sunday and caught 10-12 small ones. First time out this year. Can’t keep Chad off the Crappies. Prime time for Largemouth bass, “Right now”. Maybe a Musky?

Enjoying life,
Chad and Dad

East Fork slab Crappie after work – from the bank-line

One of my co workers at Baxla Tractor Sales – Larry Calvert decided to take advantage of some nice East Fork Lake Crappie fishing – from the bank. It all took place Saturday after work in the beautiful evening setting. Larry went and I met him there. We caught 26 real nice 9″+ slabs (few 10’s and 11’s). Lot’s of action! Lot’s of fun! Enjoying Mother Nature and of course Father God. Larry cleaned, shared, ate the whole mess of East Fork slabs.
