Bartlett 1/11/2020
« on: January 11, 2020, 06:10 PM »
Fished Bartlett today prior to the Club meeting. Launched just after safe light from the Yellow Cliff Ramp....and man was it freezing cold....bone chilling. Fished up lake around the Island, Echo, and Cats Bay with both drop shot minows as well as casting jigs. Water clarity only 6 inches or so...but ver little debris floating around. You could almost walk on the shad beyond the no wake bouies and found huge bait balls everywhere. Only found a few schools of Crappie and they were stationary not very mobile. Zero fish caught. They were there....just not wanting to eat. For the rest of the club that fished today ....feel free adding your report to this thread if you like.
When in doubt, set the hook!

I was crappie skunked, but some guy came up to me and Scott just before sundown and said he caught his limit.

Scott saw him netting fish because he was just under 200 yards away, but we don't know what he was using, or even who it was.

Hey Guys,

Thanks for the hospitality at the club meeting at Bartlett Saturday. I am encouraged that maybe this winter I will catch a Crappie. I am from Minnesota and have done a lot of walleye fishing, but there is something about the Crappie that interests me. I have access to a boat,or (pontoon) as I am a member of Bartlett Lake Boat Club. If anyone out there needs a ride I would be glad to share my boat to do some fishing. Looking  forward to learning how to catch a crappie. I believe my membership is activated as I sent $20 to Tom
