Since the last time I stepped foot on this piece of hard water more than 20 years has gone by, in a blink.
Blue Fleck, Mikehd and myself left Sparta around 7am to meet up with Mike’s brother in law (also Mike) who has been out on the Lake a couple times already this year. They have been hauling in some dandy crappies with a mix of white bass, the key words here….. “have been hauling”
There were some nice fish being caught the first hour or so after punching holes in 11-13fow. After that the bite died off and it was just good to see or hear someone in the group mark or catch a fish.
The white Bass were more aggressive and more likely to bite but a few nice crappies did make it top side. Plus one walleye at 15 1/4 inches smacked a jigging spoon with a minnow head
There was also 3 flags which only produced three dropped Rosy reds after a short run.
While on a walk about with the Lazer Mag in one hand, MarCum and a St. Croix in the other, this gill smacked a spoon in 8fow. Looks to me like this lake might hold some bruisers if a guy could land on top of them.
We struggled through a tough bite but did have fun on new waters. The three of us were in total agreement of making a trip back with the intentions of dissecting this resource a little further. The fish that did commit made for some rod bending action. Good quality crappies and hard tugging whities made for some smiles through out the day.
