Bio Bait Crappies

Recommended Posts

I spent the morning and midday chasing crappies on a Metro lake. Found that the fish were relating to the primary breaks off some shallow weeds in slightly deeper water. The fish that were in the shallower weeds were small and active, hitting just about anything put in front of them. The fish off the breakline were suspended and were light biters. I dropped down the same small 1/16 oz spoon that I was using in the weeds out on the breaks, but with no takers. The crappies would slowly rise then slide back down. I needed to go smaller and slower. I grabbed a rod that had a size 8 Custom Jigs n Spins glow Ratso. I tipped the ratso with three pieces of Bio Bait Ice Bits Larvae...and wham! They ate that up. First fish was a hefty 14 incher! Here's a pic...

This was the biggest of 27 fish in a twenty yard area. 8 of the 27 fish were in the 10-12 inch range, and the rest were under 10 inches. Every fish in the weeds was no bigger then 9 inches.

Bio Bait out fished euro larvae 2 to 1. I beileve that the extra scent from the Bio Bait triggered those sly biters into striking. The slight movement that the real larave gave off causing the jig to spin slightly, which made the fish hesistant. The Bio Biat could be held comepletely motionless, and thats what the fish wanted today. I slight jiggle, then the finesse plastic of the Ratso quivered just enough to keep the presentation appealing, and the Bio Bait sealed the deal.

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

Matt,
That's a super slab. Sounds like you're sold on Bio Bait. I like the ease of use part of it too. Keep the pics coming.

That one went back in the lake. Not a lot of big crappies in the Metro anymore and its important to let them go. Anything over 10 inches goes back in the lake for me. I like the smaller 8-10 inchers for the fryin pan.

Yep, Bio Bait is really a great new way of catching fish. It makes things a lot easier and is easy to fish with, not to mention it really catches fish.

Good Fishin,
Matt Johnson

That's it! I'm buying, too! I never got the test samples but who the h-e-doublehockeysticks cares?!?! The proof's in the puddin! Looking forward to trying these out myself.

If we're following the Fat Ba$tard - Austin Powers logic, shouldn't it be "Crappie: the other, other, other white meat"? wink.gif

Cheers!

    • Fork Horn.  Welcome to the forum and thanks for the ice report.   eyeguy 54 title fix. 😊
    • Medicine has some ice in the north shallows, but is mostly open. Rice is 3/4 froze over. Should be making ice tonight with cold temps and calm.
    • LOL,  Don't p i s s Carol off! 
    • I have the Helix 7 Ice and there is no way you could pry that from my hands for a noisy spinning round dial thing. ( I was going to type flasher but I know what types of snarky GIF's would have been posted in reply to that. 
    • I’m glad Lavine is gone! With him on the team, wolves would’ve been in last place last year. He is NOT a winner! Chicago sucked last year! They suck this year! And they’re going to suck next year! I think Jimmy Butler would have stayed if we would have shipped off Wiggins. If anything, this trade should help reduce minutes for KAT and Gibson in a positive way.
    • Well, I’m only about 5 minutes into the next show, and I already know the older Judith will be more annoying than Carl was. Yep, show is back in the pits!
    • I think the trade sucks if they actually had the Heat's offer of Josh Richardson and a 1st round pick plus another player...even Richardson and the first round pick would be better then Saric, Covington, and a 2022 2nd!  Maybe I am off on this (Saric and Covington aren't the worst return) but looking back I wish they had stuck with Lavine, Markinen, and Dunn!  Oh well glad to put this behind us and start the healing process!!  hope Butler brings the 76ers and their "Process" down!! 😂  Go Wolves!!
    • My son was able to gain access by connecting it to his desktop. It required 12v power to drive it. Thanks.
    • UFFDA dats close!!!!!!!!!! we are close to the spring lake store iffin you go that way much!!!!!!
    • Not much to complain about so far, must be why its so quiet in here. From the games I am seeing we don't even look all that great yet but are finding ways to win and Dubs/parise/granlund have been amazing. Will need some depth to kick in to be any kind of real contender, and of course we need to find a way to actually score goals if we make the playoffs, it seems that is always the issue.
