Opening Weekend Results

5 posts in this topic

Did anyone have any luck for the opener? I fished Largon Lake and Halfmoon Lake. I was casting for Pike, Bass, and anything else that might bite. I had no luck at all. Not even one bite. I spoke to many others that had simular luck.

What are some of the reports of other lakes in the area?

Really surprised you got skunked on Largon, we were out there Sunday and put 27 fish in the boat. Were you watching your bait? A lot of fish were following without ever striking. A few pics:

First pike of the day.

Aggressive little thing, don't know what it was thinking hitting a big bait.

Wow. This must show my ability as a fisherman. I fished there from about noon till 3:30 and got skunked. I threw X-raps, plastics, spoons, and spinners all along the shoreline. I even trolled across the middle a couple of times.

I was watching for fish but never seen any.

What time were you out there? Where did you have all of the luck?

Was there from 2 til sunset. I find the shoreline to be remarkably unproductive on that lake, despite the nice looking wood you see. The only 2 productive areas are in the northwest where the lilly pads will grow in, and the very south part of the lake (draw a line from the boat launch to about 100 yards north of the little dam and the entire area south is good. Basically anywhere you catch those green stringy weeds if you let your lure sink. I would say though that it is much easier to fish once the pads grow in, just fish in and around them.

Yea, I fished all of those areas. Huh... Well, maybe it will be better next time.
