Spent my 15th anniversary fishing at Acton lake!:D It was the wifes ideal, no kids.
We caught a total of 7 fish. 1 blue gill, 4 crappie, 1 saugeye, and 1 sunfish. I had hooked a big saugeye but it shook the hook before I could land it. The wife cought the second saugeye right when I lost mine. It was the big fish of the day at 16.25 inches. We fished for about 2.5 hours.
It was the best anniversary so far!:D

I was there yesterday also. I fished from a boat near the lodge. I got a cat fish and some crappie. Everyone I saw was catching crappie. When I let a guy at the ramp had a limit of saugeye but they were small. I don't know why people keep those little 10 inchers. Where you in a boat or fishing from the bank? What part of the lake did you catch the saugeye and on wht kind if bait?

Hi.
I was there also yesterday from 4 pm to about 2 am. I was on both sides of the lake. I caught crappie on both sides, and gills on both sides also. As of yet - the big crappie still are hanging out in the deeper water, or in the flats, and around what little structure is available. Dusk from 7 pm to 9:30 showed for most of the action. Temps on my FF showed between 68 to 70 degrees.

Rick.

PS. If somebody could tell the monster cat that I fought for a good ten minutes - he owes me big time. When he went straight under my boat - he finally snapped the pole!

Did you see the fish? It may have been something other than a cat. :D

Speaking of accidental cats … caught a 18+ on a fly rod Wednesday …. 80th oz jig tipped w/ wax worm! LANDED HIM (with help from my buddy with a net)

Caught 30 or so crappie, only 4 over 9” … Where are all the big ones?

Cought the saugeye on the south side of the small peninsula. We were fishing with a jig that had a small tub on it. The colors were red tip, white body, and chartruse (spelling?) tail. We were in a boat. It is a 15foot Sea Ark.
