Ken, Thanks to you, I enjoy my bluegill fishing so much more now, and have joined your thining of "Micrfo" when it comes to gills. I look forward to "learning" more from you and others when this micro topic really gets going. Thanks for all the helpl/info you have shared with me and all ;your great informative posts on this site.
Hey Slip, I just checked your response from last yr sorry..We caughrt 300 plus gills last summer.Hit the ice once this yr got skunked..Last yr hit Mullett Lk 8 nice 14" jumbo perch..Will try Otsego for early evening
Walleye..Nice pics on your album..Yrs ago i invivited an Arab from Palistine so we fished Kent Lake and limited out on crappie and Blue Gills..He prepared them we gutted them left the scales on and baked them with a glass of ozzie..
Hope you don't mind I had a gentleman Marvin Morgan contact me about his Lowrance chirp finder. He like most other are confused trying to read the manual and understand it. I gave him your name since your the best versed on the subject I don't think you'll mind but if you do I apologize..
Slip-I use a bead between the bottom of my slip floats to cushion the blow it receives from banging against the split shot when hook setting and/or popping the float . Those plastic float stems don't split since I've done that .
Hey Slip enjoyed the photos of crappie.Years ago i moved here to Gaylord as i mentioned earlier I fished Kent lake in the winter.Client of mine from down south taught me to fish blue gills using the porcupine quill..Anyway I also fished sandy bottom lk in south lyon we rented a cabin on the lk for 4 wks and nailed those crappie on pink whit feather jig 500 total for that period.what an experience for the children that was 40 plus yrs ago...Summer fishing at its finest..Richard
That would be great Slip Sinker....I am envious of the Floridians where all them fishes are at too....All those fishes are over in the "OTHER" time zone of Florida...The "OTHER" Florida, hahahaha....I'm in N.W. Florida almost to Pensacola....Between Tallahassee and Pensacola, little town called Crestview in the central time zone....I have the Gulf south of me, and Alabama to the north.....So I'm with you on being envious for sure.....hahahaha
Thank you for invite Slip Sinker...You know more about ice fishing than I do, as the only Ices we have down here is in our drinks....hahahaha....How ever I will help any way I can, and one never has enough friends. Eric
Slip Sinker, you had asked me some questions about Ice fishing a couple weeks ago. I hadn't forgotten to answer you but decided to put all my thoughts together in a blog. I was able to post it today. I don't clame to have all the answers but have found that I can consistantly find Crappies under the Ice on the bodies of water that hold them where I live, so I shared what I knew... I'd love to hear your thoughts!
