Berlin Crappie

Discussion in 'Northeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by papaperch, Apr 20, 2004.

  1. :) Bombed out at Mogadore thursday. went to Berlin today not expecting much because of cold front passing thru last night. Was pleasantly suprized by eager crappie in 17 FOW and 20 FOW. Ended up with 35 crappie and 1 10 inch perch. Biggest perch I have caught out of Berlin since mid 50 s. Also caught and released 2 channel cat. Was real interesting figuring out what they wanted. Slip bobbers were useless. Ended up using HT micromaster rods straight down these 7 footers are like long ice rods. You could barely see them bite. Water was so dingy that camera was also useless. Although bite was light they wanted the larger minnows. I suspect they could not feel the small ones stuggles as well as the larger minnows. Flo pink jig head 1/16 oz worked well as well as bare # 6 tru-turn. All fish caught within 2 ft of bottom. All fired up now and back to work tommorrow. OUCH
