...did you catch it in mouth though??? Crazy little mouth it has...mine wasn't as big as the one you have in picture. Mouth on mine was pointed straight down and No way it could have been caught with lure ... definitely a bottom feeder fish...more so than common carp.

Anyway...cool fish for sure.

What lake were you fishing? I am ready for some slabs
All lakes have been producing fish. Some lakes you have to work harder than others, but there’s always fish to be had. Fish shallow dark mucky bottoms. Less than 4 feet and I bet there are a few around. Fish 1-2 feet down with a gulp minnow or plastic. Have also gotten fish on live minnows. Regardless fish shallow on a nice warm sunny day and it shouldn’t take too long to get on fish. I’ll tell you they were in the Akron area. I’ve been killing them out east tho too

Good morning panfish pursuers! - Chilly start this morning 36 it’s gonna get up in the mid 60s today so it will be pretty nice later on. The barometer looks good today 30.17 very little wind out of the east 1mph. I’ll bet the fish wanna play hard this afternoon.

No fishing for this guy. I’ll be off working in the woods & for the next several weeks the name of the new game is how many morel mushrooms can I find on company time!


I’ll be living vicariously through y’all’s reports & fish porn. Best of luck to those headed out today! Positive vibes & lips on hooks!

Eventually. We are supposed to do all the ROWs once a year. But they add so much on to the package last year we’re still finishing lines from last year. They have expanded this operation and added more machines but haven’t hired enough operators yet.

I’m only gonna be on the ROWs for a couple weeks then I have my normal 200+ little sites every week to keep up with until fall . Then I’ll probably go back out on the ROWs a little before I start to wind down for the season.

Main caught on crawler drifting for trout but also once on a panther Martin. Good fight in river current.

Thats a big 6 point! He gonna be a nice 8 soon if nobody pops him


I would’ve had another nice one off this dude but farmer showed up seeing what we was doing on his property and asked me if Id knock it off for him.

Say he’s got the match up in the house either way he was happy and he wasn’t angry that he wasn’t notified that we were going to be on his land so win win.

I don’t always meet people as nice as this gentleman some of them are understandably unhappy to find me miles inside of their property.

Short day. Didn’t get out till after 1:00 and only had till 4:00. Tough afternoon. Only got 8 crappie and 4 smaller gills. Only 3 of the crappie weren’t throwbacks. Seems like they haven’t come back in good yet after the cold. Water was back up to 55 though. All the crappie came on a smaller off-white salt & pepper plastic. Gills hit the 1” gulp. All 2 ½’ under a bobber. 5 – 6 fow with a muck bottom.
