Busy with the Buzz, Bites and Bass!
In the beginning of the week, I fished with clients and we were focusing on small mouth bass on Lake Mohawksin. Conditions were foggy in the morning to clouds, with warm sun and water temperatures in the 74-84 degree range. Crank baits were casted along the cabbage weeds early. Zack did a great job catching nice small mouth bass on crankbaits. Then Alex caught a beautiful 26 ½” pike crankin’. Good job and great release. During the mid-morning the pike took over. The boys caught many pike fishing top lures such as buzzbaits, weedless frogs and worms. The pattern was fishing slop mainly and jigging deeper mid-day. Congratulations to Zack and Alex! They had great action all day!
The next day I was on the river with clients fishing bass. It was hot, sunny and no wind, which resulted in tough fishing. The boys caught and missed bass off the rocks early and then we got into the fish in the heavy weeds. Small mouth bass were biting on Carolina rigs and cranks with northern pike action on the buzz in the heavy stuff. The last weed bed the boys were three for four on small bass throwing cranks. Congrats to Ron & Brooks. The evening run we used the same plan but on a different water. During a small window we had good action. Ron caught pike on the buzz. Suzy landed a slab crappie, I caught a nice 17” walleye, and Brooks had bites, but figured he caught too many fish earlier! Great work Ron, Brooks, and Suzy; everybody did a great job!
The next day there was an approaching cold front, with winds south to northwest and water temps 75-83 degrees. There was a hot weed bite today. Young Connor caught jumbo perch, 13” slab crappies, 16” walleye, and pike on beetlespin! Awesome job! His dad was catching nice pike on soft plastics. The big fish was a 26 ½” slobber. Great job and release! The boys banged up more crappies and caught pike all day! Way to go Aaron and Connor!
On day four of the week, the day after a cold front, there was high pressure, sunny and water temperatures 72 to 85 degrees. During the morning run, Dalton got us started with walleye and crappie action which was short-lived with the sunny hot conditions. Next we went back to the weeds and Howard caught and released slab crappie and the boys got some pike. The evening run was wonderful just before the sun went down. Scotty was on fire, catching small mouth bass and crappie. Dalton was catching pike and slab crappie. The big crappie rolled off next to the boat and was in the 14-15” range. Nicely done Dalton and Scotty!
