Sunfish question..

5 posts in this topic

Ok, the spot I'm on (in my wheeled house), the first day there, I caught a few pretty nice sunnies. I didnt have alot of time before dark, but after dark I only caught 1 crappie.

The next day, went out and spend a little time. Only caught small sunnies, but quite a few. Again, at night, only 2 crappies.

So, would you move? Or stay another day and hope the bigger sunnies move back in?

well was there a weather change from day 1 to day 2 that could make the bigger ones move ...was day 1 a weekday and 2 a weekend ? what im getting at is was there more people on the ice making a lot of noise for day 2 but what im trying to say is what was different about day 2 there has to be something to make the big ones move out from where they did so you just need to find out what that was and you need to deside if you think the big ones will come back to that spot or not .... but if you where catching them there unless it is really really shallow they would should come back at some time

On the subject of sunfish. I was fishing in about 24 ft. of water and the sunfish would only hit really small jigs. My question is, how do you get your little jig down faster because the school moves out fast. Do you put on weights?

put a weight above it like 2 foot or more if the water is really cleer will be a little bit harder to feel it but if they are hitting hard it wont matter

    •   Del be fightin' with himself again. He likes that. 
    • I now boys fight Nice!!
    • Its a great house. Yep its heavy, yep the cover is bulky compared to a single layer, yep I'd buy it again. You can always pull down a zipper or 2 (front and back doors) if you get hot. For what its worth I switched from a Clam Yukon TC (normal sides with a insulated top) both are a similar size. On below zero days in the clam I would have to use a big buddy. In the otter I use a buddy and rarely turn it on high.
    • Ya, right. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA   From a car audio site....MOTORHEADS talkin'...   FlyinMiata9,
      A shorter antenna mast captures a smaller portion of a radio broadcast station's travelling radio wave. That results in reduced radio reception capability. The reduced radio reception capability may never be noticed if only listening to nearby radio broadcast stations in the city. 

      There's no overall magic of one short antenna over another. There are some that include a signal amplifier. They can at times enhance more distant radio receptions, but usually degrade other radio reception situations, often those where there are multiple strong radio signals in the reception area.

      The overall disadvantages of antenna amplifiers for car antennas tend to be far more predominant than advantages. There are some radio signal amplifiers for car antennas that automatically switch "off" when operated in a strong signal area. That can assist clearly listening to the nearby strong radio stations, but reduce the prospect of listening to any some distance away.

      There's always a prospect of the antenna you installed being defective, or not installed properly well mounted to the car's fender for a good electrical radio reception ground plane. Check to make sure the in-line Motorola connector set is fully pushed-in inserted together. 

      A simple way to test the antenna line and system is to tune in a weak AM radio station in the daytime and then grab hold of the antenna mast to detect stronger and louder reception of that weak AM radio station. Your conductive body mass adds some to the short antenna's reception capability. There may also be an initial "thump" sound as the car's radio makes an automatic adjustment of its radio reception sensitivity. If there's no dramatic change in weak AM radio reception, look for an open or shorted electrical problem. Best bet is a full length proper antenna.
    • The replacements most likely have tuning components built in.  And it isn't too big a deal anyway if you have decent signal strength.
    •     What are ya, a parrot? Someone needs to tune you...with 220 volts of inductance. *ZZZZZT*  
    • Well you guys could have given me this info before.
    • Not in disagreement....most Ice gear is though.   Just trying to find some feed back on if it works well and lights up like it should.
