Arthur 2022

Well now, It's Been pretty good when able to out and not Bad Weather.  Been a couple days since fishing the lake, but when was able cats and stripers are doing good on. The funny thing is that have been hitting on same Bait. Now as far as the carp been pretty tough. Cannot seem to be able to catch/find. All fishing so far this year been from shore. Tried all kinds of different spots hitting some inlets, old weed lines, grass beds, soft and hard bottoms. just about every carp bait known to mankind LOL So If Anybody has any info on catching/finding these creatures Please PM me. Will not share any info given.  Thanks

I had read that the colder the water gets, "smell" doesn't spread as much.  I am not sure how true it is in relation to catching fish?  That might be your issue with the carp though?  If using a dough ball, maybe try dipping your dough ball in an attractant (watered down doughball slurry, anise, peanut butter, or whatever scent you do well with) before casting.  I'd imagine with your catfish/striper bait, if live bait, it is creating movement/vibrations to attract fish.  If cut bait/liver, the blood and other scents are finer and move in the colder water a bit more?  I know that many that fish cut bait, make it a point to change out their bait every 15 minutes or so, since it loses the scent.  Might stick to the bait a bit longer in the cold water.
 
Are you breaking the ice to fish?

No Ice breaking going on, not then But Would have to NOW LOL couple weeks ago. Yeah, tried everything under the sun as bait for the carp. Always chum Little, medium, and pollute the water. still no luck fun tho. I read everything I could find which was, everything I already knew as most was common sense. Never have problem with the river carp we slam them just about every time out.  As far as the cats and stripes it's more of where and when that's all I'll Say about them.

So someone pm'ed  and brought up that I wouldn't give up the how to get the stripers in the winter.  Ok get a couple tubs of liver strain threw tight strainer. get as much blood out as you can, then coat with garlic and onion powder set in refrigerator overnight. warm blood up a bit and garlic and onion powder heavy. don't refrigerate, store near heat in sealed container. day or two. Now use a drop shot setup with inline bobber to keep bait about a foot off bottom. Now Where and When, 528 bridge area right before sunup till bout hour past same at sundown and hour past. Oh use the sealed blood as bait dip and fling in fishing area (good luck not getting that on ya) LOL   P.S. USE RUBBER GLOVES

I took a ride to blow the dust off and maybe get a few casts in. Wilhem was still iced up but went to check out the boat launch. It's been a minute since I fished there and plan on hitting it this year. Ended up at Elk Crick and got one Steakhead to net. Arthur will probably be next.

Congrats on the stell.  Not a bad way to start the year.  Hopefully Artie is open enough for you to get some casts in.

Thanks. I think the next 60 degree day will have me cleaning the pontoon out and getting it ready.

Anyone been to the lake lately?  Open water in the coves or anywhere?  This cabin fever nonsense is getting a bit overwhelming.

I took advantage of the nice day to check the lake. Coves have open water. Some more than others. 95% of the lake is covered. Enough to have some guys out on it at the 528 church. No fish is worth going out on ice right now for me. I had one hit in about 2 hours of fishing. Did some exploring and enjoyed the skunking. Next one will not be so enjoyable…. Not sure how long it will take to have things open enough for boats. A lot left to melt, but mid 60s rain and winds will help.

I was fishing where you, me, and Giggles McGee used to crappie fish and the beaver hut is gone.I guess they all got trapped out. What a shame. It helped the fishing.

Hey Chris,

Hope the hospital fixed you up and healing well. Added to the prayer list. Unfortunately that list has been exploding in length the past few months.

 Saw back in Dec. they didn't have a winters supply of food stored, maybe ran out of good trees close by?? Can't believe the tree is still standing, a park employee could drop it easy. 40 years ago started fishing that spot and have seen many fisherman pass through those years. Wonder if Steve (Sportspal) will be back this season? Nice it's the first road from home but only fish it once or twice a year anymore :(
 
 Tim, Thanks man. I'll be good to go in another week
