Well,I'm not gonna say where I was fishing.But,I'll give you as much info as I can.Fish were ALL caught right in the edge of the major weed beds.Picked up quite a few weeds trying to stay right on the edges.Bass seemed to be just inside the edge,while the crappie were suspended close to the bottom just outside the edges.The Saugeye,I believe was under the crappie waiting for an easy meal.Luckily,he found my slow,small,deep crank before a little crappie.Can't tell you a trolling speed as I don't have any idea.I feel my bait and how it's working,what it's hitting,etc. and adjust.Best I can do as far as info.I probably will go again this week or weekend.Will report back good or bad.

Rupert is 7 miles from my house and i fish it about 7-10 times a month...its an ok lake but is swamped with weeds. The only time i go there is if i just want to get out and fish somewhere for a couple hours. Most time i travel to farther locations. Alot of fish but usually run small...you can catch 7" crappie all day and maybe get 1 or 2 bigger. Same for bass most fish 10 - 12". There some big ones in there but the same can be said for any lake.

Yep,Rupert isn't very good.MUCH better places to go.Its not even worth the bother.And I just fished 11/2 hrs (11:30-1:30p)wading banks of my home lake(closest to me) and only caught 2 keeper saugeye,a 12lb channel a 5lb. Channel,a 18" lmb and a 15" lmb.It sucks here too.Again,don't bother.:rolleyes:

Weekly bass tourny on tuesdays take on average 3-5 lbs to win with a 7 fish limit. Usually 12 to 15 boats. I just dont want to mislead someone who might come from 3 hours away thinking its a rocky fork or burr oak. Any new lake is worth fishing for change of scenery and who knows you might have something that hits the lottery for the day. But odds are you will be disappointed at the quality. Look at latest shock survey result. Not so great.

That is a 5 fish limit.......and there are some big bass in there. For all you non believers, that's great for us local guys. Keeps the fishing pressure down.....lol
