crappies beware ::: the Angel Eye Dropper spoon is hitting the water tonight!!!

Recommended Posts

I've got a Pink and white AE Jr. that I rigged up with a 3" dropper (single glow hook with glow and gold 4mm beads on the dropper) that I'm going to try out tonight.

The Crappins on this little lake have been pretty finicky lately, and I'm hoping this is going to be the ticket.

I tried that and I kept getting hang ups even when I shortened the dropper. Those beads may solve the problem though. Let us know how it goes.

Try a small brass bead or two ( for weight ) just above the hook. That might reduce the tangle factor.

Sorry to say I can't brag up my modified angel eye yet. As usual I had to switch to smaller ice fly's to hook only 2 crappies.

I tried out the bio-bait and caught one on that, and one on the berkely power bait wigglers that look like little waxies.

The Berkely power wigglers seem to be a pretty fish catching alternative to live waxies. Any one else have good luck with them.

I also tried the dropper thing on my angle eye but im yet to catch a fish on it. I only used it once so I might try again and see if I can get some fish off of it for once.

I use the Power Bait Wigglers every once in a while for perch. I have had good success at early ice using power bait. I tried using power bait on Friday because I was out of bait. But I couldn't get them to take it. Then I quick ran to get some wax worms and minnows and as soon as I put the line down I had a fish on and I had a successful morning after that. So I think Berkley Power Bait has it's place but you can't beat the real thing.

    • Anyone been out this past week? My bird hunting has been cut short this year so I am depending on others to keep me up to date. My wife has Breast Cancer and is starting radiation treatments soon, lasting a good part of October. I may be able to do some deer hunting depending how she is feeling. She has had surgery and the outlook is great and she feels great so that's the main thing. Good luck to all you hunters.
    • dont everyone post at once!!!!!!🤣😂 hummers bailed from itasca county, got a couple still around cold spring, seen them yesterday. but i havent seen any robins in a while. anyone else???????????????????????????????????
    • My routing was keep all the drive train zerks greased every few outings, change oil & filter yearly and front and rear diff by-yearly unless I did a lot of swamp running.  There are a bunch of helpful videos on the Tube. 
    • I was out today putting up a deer stand and came across a lobster mushroom. I don't think I have seen any this late before. I will be enjoying the little gem tonight.
    • thanks for the write-up - and great pics!  hopefully these stories will keep me interested until i have my own west hunt.   good luck to all
    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
    • Not unlike most years.....
