  1. Fished W.B. Tuesday what a day the weather and fishing was as good as it gets...Not very many boats out what a shame...Love to put that day in a bottle and open it up in Jan. or Feb.....The fish were hitting all day long... Saw Ben a Black Guy from Cleveland and looked like he was doing as good or better than I...Took 17 home nothing under 10 in. 3 were F.O. ...the biggest was 14 1/2 incher...Caught a lot of 8 and 9 inchers all went back...for next year...Just thought I'd share the day...
    Wanted to Post Pic. Still haven't figured out how too..Some day if I live long enough..They are in my Gallery...

  8. I was on the West side of Rock Springs Road ...Jigs under slipbobbers any thing with chartaruse like twister tail or fuzzy grubs...They also liked anything with gold flake in it....Good Luck

    What a great week to be outside. Wore shorts 3 days in a row at work (framer) and enjoyed every minute of it! Then just as expected, the weekend shows its ugly face. The boat will not be put away just yet though. Hoping to get out at least one more time before the snow really starts flyin'. Shootin' for mosquito for some walleye or crappie.
  14. ...jay2k...I feel that is a mistake a lot of fishermen makes...putting the boat to bed for the winter too early...a few years back when my passion in the fall was waterfowl hunting...I had days when the weather was what we called blue bird days...65 to 75 degrees.. sun shining ...no wind...birds were sitting in quiet bays sucking up the warm sun and not moving...and a lot of times that was at Mosquito...where I had at least 2 blinds set up...keep up the spirit I am sure you will be able to get out at least once or twice ...before the snow locks us in...

  15. Hey Lewzer, Just a note for your buddies. Not allowed to fish with minnows at Silver Creek. If they get caught, it's a BIG fine........
  16. I got to ask,silver creek , on west branch? where is it?????????? don;t fish w/b much , is it true you can;t use minnies;
  17. Silver Creek is just west of the beach and there isn't anything wrong with using minnows. He must be thinking of another Silver Creek.
  18. Sorry guys. I was talking bout Silver Creek Metro park. Didn't realize he was talking bout West Branch Silver Creek. My apoligies...
