tried Pleasant
« on: May 02, 2013, 08:15 PM »

Last night
went up the river quite a ways just before dark time
put lights out. only  attracted a number of larval forms and a good swirl of little 3-6 inch stripers
had minnows out and anchovies for cats
caught two crappie and two stripers -- pretty slow where we were
Headed in about midnight -- this part was a pretty good adventure since the wind had seriously picked up

Thx for report. Have not heard much out of pleasant. Did see on AZGFD last week some guy pulled out some from their. I have never caught a slab personally from their. But have really never went up river to far.

I used to catch crappie there all the time back in the day.  It's good to see they are still in there.

This is a crappie forum so I won't report on my Striper fishing at Lake Pleasant unless someone asks..........no crappie but we started at 6AM.
Or if you don't want striper reports send me PM if interested.

Summers are a bit slow around here Crappie wise.  Other than a few of us that night fish for Crappie, I'm thinking a thread like my past "Friday Night Striper Roadtrip" thread would generate a bit of traffic on our ole site.  As much as I admire our Fearless Leaders' dedication to our club & everything Crappie - maybe a "Fish X" sub forum would be fun.  After all, it's still about fishing & sharing fishing related information.  There were some really great tips & advise shared in earlier "Fish X" threads so if we make sure to keep it that way?  Maybe it'll also help generate camaraderie between club members & website members?  The moderators have done a tremendous job of keeping this site about Crappie & fishing in general without all the BS like the other site generates. Thoughts..........

So i take it fish x is stripers? It think that's a good idea. But how about not limiting to fish X? I mean their is lots of species to fish for in Az. Maybe like an all other species form? I know for me I like to catch all kinds of fish. Yes slabs are my favorite if you talk to any of my family and friends but I also enjoy other fishing opportunitys for other species when time just right. Goes from the lil blues to the big flatheads and everything inbetween. Would be nice to be able to share tips, tricks, stories and locations for other fish without upsetting anybody.

While I share your enthusiasm for fishing for other species, lets also remember why this site was created in the first place - Crappies.  The club has worked hard in getting this site up & running and the moderators have done a great job in sticking with the game plan.  One can argue that if you want to talk about Bass, The Zone is the place for that.  There's also websites for Catfish, Striper & Walleye - although other than the Catfish site, not much local info.  The thought, at least in my opinion, was to generate website discussions on Lake Pleasant Stripers to augment the so called lull in Crappie fishing during the dog days of summer.  But within reason of course, not losing sight of what this website is really about in the first place.  This is a tough call for those in charge and whatever the decision is, we'll have to respect that decision & their reasons for it.

So with that being said, maybe we'll just see how this idea/suggestion goes first before exploring other species.....

Just my opinion  :greengrin:

Almost every other fishing site you go to that is fish pecific has an other species forum.  I would be for it, like you said Larry, most people fish for everything but Crappie during the summer months.
