NIMI 1/23/17 Crappie action!

Discussion in 'Northeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by bobberbucket, Jan 23, 2017.

  1. Well the rains let up pretty good around 1030 this morning so I decided to hit nimi and boy was it a good time! sure I got rained on some through the day but I had a blast! Started off a little slow until I got them figured out. Started off getting a few crappie and perch on the gold #6 hook and minnow fishing 1.5-3.5 ft deep. But it wasn't exactly one after the other so I switched up to a purple and white sparkle tube with a black 1/32oz jig head under a bobber about 2ft I started slamming the crappie between 8-10 3/4 ". They just wanted it twitched a little sometimes other times the bobber hit the water and kept on going!! Caught around 40 or so crappie kept 12 from 10"-10 3/4" for the fryer the rest released to grow up a bit!

  11. Sounds like I was not the only one getting some fresh fillets on NIMi. I ate mine last night and I am convinced this time of year is when they taste the best. I kept a mixed bag of crappie and perch (one Jumbo). I enjoy ice fishing but hey 60 degrees in January...I will take it.

  12. Just got back from having another go at them. Fished from 9am-2pm the cold front has really slowed them down since yesterday! Still managed to catch a bunch but had to work for them. Ended up with a few keepers over 10" which I gave to a buddy. The rest went back in the drink I'd still be at it but I've had enough of that cold wind for today ImageUploadedByOhub Campfire1485285944.296284.jpg ImageUploadedByOhub Campfire1485286150.710626.jpg

  13. Good job. I get them off shore too there, but not in January, more like march and April. Don't forget to put a big "X" on the water so we can all go catch 'em, :D

  14. April is always a blast! I forgot the X! I tried to mark my holes with a pile of dinks but they just swam off!

    Was out again today from 9-315 today was the day of the dink! Only caught 6 crappie that were 10" a dozen skinny 9" and a bunch smaller than that . With some dink perch and gills mixed in. The water today was much clearer then it has been I got rained on a little here and there but it was mostly sunny. the fish played hard ball it seem I constantly had to change my presentation to entice them to bite. Caught around 40 fish total kept nothing I'll just chalk it up as another good day outdoors in my book
  17. Killing it!!! Good job! U ever work????;)
