1  Fishing Lake Lavon / Crappie Fishing Forum / Saturday, Monday & Wednesday trips on: June 22, 2018, 03:39:54 PM
 
 
Went fishing Saturday, Monday afternoon and Wednesday. Finally catching up to do a report.   icon_cool
Took advantage of the cloudy weather due to the storms in the Gulf and took a day off work.

Saturday was tough as we fished BP’s and caught prolly 40-50 fish but only kept 11. Luckily a buddy of ours only kept 5, so he gave them to us to make a good mess of 16.  icon_mrgreen  Thanks Carter! He said he caught many more the day before just messing around, so Saturday was off for us for some reason.
Right near the end of the Saturday trip, I realized we were both using different colors, but very similar shad patterns. So I switched to an old favorite (from last year lol) of mine called Copper Mine color since it resembles a perch rather than a shad. Wham! That was a good move. They were hitting it with a vengeance.

So Monday afternoon quick trip, after starting on a few BP’s and still catching 3 or 4 to 1 dinks, decided to switch to fishing timber.
Also started with Copper Mine and the big bites continued. It was a short trip but ended up with some solid fish.

Still cloudy forecast and I was chompin’ at the bit on Tuesday. Took advantage of our “floating holiday” on Wednesday and hit the lake early. Started with Copper Mine on timber again, but in a whole different part of the lake. Went exploring and caught a few decent fish but oddly slow, then moving to the next spot found a random WPT from years past out in the middle of nowhere in 25-26 foot of water. Turned out to be an underwater tree and caught a few good ones there. Then on to the next timber. The place looked great and was the right depth (around 15-18) and marked good fish, but very few bites. Not sure if it was the wind shift from due east or pressure or what, but very slow and tough bites. It was a weird day in general… windy, calm, light rain, blazing sun, clouds, major wind shift – repeat 5 times. lol So I kept moving and the last place paid off with some good fish. Several pound and a half fish and a pound and ¾.

I guess the COE found some funding and are doing some great repairs/maintenance around our lake.
Thanks for the good work!!

Great idea.
Yep, I do that to.
Also, I rub shad oil on my hands or my hands on a fish also.    icon_mrgreen

With June, July and August coming up, a friendly reminder to stay hydrated and use sunscreen.
I try to stay hydrated, but I tend to focus on catching fish instead.   icon_mrgreen

It takes a conscious effort to remember sunscreen and water! Early & often!!    icon_cool

Getting my tire repaired this morning and Discount tire had this great chart.
I never drink water every 15-20 minutes like the sign below says, but I'm going to try.

Cooler Found!


A big thanks to Randy Abbott and his (grand?) nephew!
Todd Ford was returning back to weigh in and had a spun prop.  They ended up getting third place in one of the hours, and the slow trip across the lake they found my green ice chest. Many thanks for its return!
 
There are still good people in this world!

Yesterday we used the rope that holds the handle on to tie it to the seat post like it was intended.  lol

Was it full of crappie?

Only a few... luckily.
But everything fell out in those strong wind/waves.

Lost green ice chest Saturday.

Hey, we lost our two-tone green ice chest on Saturday when it slid out of the boat. Probably in the east arm main lake area when we were running. It has a piece of rope going through one of the handles to hold it on. Anybody found it id sure appreciate it! Thanks!

Rats, I have my niece's graduation on that day.

Good luck to all!

BTW, I have heard that the local guides will NOT be fishing this tournament to make it more fun for the weekend warriors.

fishing from 8am to 3pm today, burned 3/4 tank of gas, from deep inside of the creek to the main lake brush piles, got 4 crappies 2 keeper. same thing last week. my cousin caught 10 off the rocks at 380 last week. i had to check my phone pictures to make sure that we were killing the spawning crappies on mid March last year

True!!
This year is SO WEIRD!!

Not sure what's going on with them... except the usual - cold fronts, water level change etc.
 
Good luck out there!
