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 love the Berkley Power maggots! Saved us a canadien Crappie trip last year. Also work well for trout!

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.

NORTHLANDER: Can you give a bit more detail on using powerwiglers for trout. Lakers? thru the ice or in the summer for Rainbows deep?

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.

    • Last friday of lent and Coborns had a flash sale on fresh salmon so I put some on my overpriced pellet grill.   Good thing my wife talks me into sacrificing eating meat on Fridays of lent, you know, for Jesus.    
    • Got up early and put this small piece of brisket on my overpriced pellet smoker. I've never done one this small but my buddy who owns a meat market gave it to me at half price to get rid of it. It's  almost foiling time now at 10:30 am.
    • I’m in St. Cloud for Easter weekend, and decided to check out nearby Little Rock Creek. I had very low expectations. There’s a few easements, and a nice little wildlife management area, but the creek really isn’t very fishable. Water was pretty high, and banks were flooded. Overhanging brush would make fishing impossible in summer. Didn’t catch anything. Wasn’t disappointed though. Now I know not to bother again. Was still a nice morning for a walk in the country.
    • Haha. So, her boots kept falling off so much (several sizes too big), she eventually put them on the wrong feet. I tried telling her that, which is always a losing battle on my part. I thought maybe, that if they were on the wrong feet, they would stay on better. They did not.   This is the best time of year to take kids out trout fishing. No leaves on the trees, brush is still dead and matted down, so casting and walking are super easy.
    • Very nice. You need to start making Youtube fishing videos with them now like #fish_time does with his kids!  😀 You can tell their fishing with Dad and not Mom.  Did you help your daughter with her boots Dad? 😄
    • Had a couple hours, so I brought my 2 younger kids out to enjoy the nice afternoon. River is a little high yet, but still pretty cloudy. I guess it was flooded pretty good yesterday. Rain must have washed in lots of food, because every trout had a big fat belly. I caught 5, and my son caught 1 (all browns). All of them on a largemouth bass colored husky jerk, which is my new favorite trout lure. Me and the kids finished the day covered in mud, and had a great time!    
    • Seeing whats working for everyone using decoys for mn. opener. My new whiteface DSD jake had 2 toms come in for my 10 year old grandson, Jeffrey. Whats working for everyone else? When using hen/jens only decoys, how do you set them and what do you use etc. Like upright and feeder???? Just seeing.
