Hey Art - For those that may not know, can you give us a little info/background on who Tracy Purtee is & his interest in doing a Crappie Tourney?

I know some club members have mentioned the idea of having similar Crappie tourneys in years past.  With the upswing in the Crappie bite given the new habitats, the timing might be right for a tourney like this.

Planning on being there around first light. 

Gene, bring good ole Roger with ya....

Copy on the meeting being on da beach at noon near the Yellow Cliffs ramp

I'd go and see what the conditions in the morning actually is at the lake.  I've stayed home from a trip(s) given the weather forecast only to find out the weather at my lake of choice was actually not as bad as advertised.  Weather here seems to be very localized (for the most part anyway!!) so what's happening in your part of town might not be the same at the lake.  Anything to avoid da honey do list.....

Good job 03!!  Way to get out there.  Minnows fished vertically or tipped on your jigs might of helped. But solid work!

And yes Bruce, they do make anchors specially for Yaks.

Beautiful day on Roosevelt!!

On the water around 0630 fishing until 3:15pm.  Since I haven't been there in quite awhile, took some time yesterday to scout out & mark the habitats as I felt a bit behind the power curve since Art & Sparkchaser have been all over them!

Managed to catch 5 Crappies, 2 Bass and 2 Bluegill all tight lining minnows early as the bite seemed to die off later in the day.  Not that my playing around with gear issues and driving around marking habitats didn't have an effect on my catch rate.....  :greengrin: :glasses9: :dontknow:

Bartlett / Re: Kayak fishing at Bartlett?

I fish out of my boat but....... 

I just recently bought a kayak that would be perfect to outfit for fishing, which is something I have plans to do.  I do not see reason why one couldn't crappie fish out of a Yak.  The only limitations of a Yak vs a boat would be ease of running from spot to spot quickly.

I've seen guys on Alamo crappie fishing out of a kayak along with Yellow Cliffs/Cat Bay area of Bartlett.  So go for it AZFishing03!!  I'd love to hear how you've set up your Yak and fishing reports.

One of these days I'm going to leave my boat at home & fish out of my kayak and beat the pants off these guys at one of our club derbies.  :greengrin: :glasses9: :dontknow: :ecomcity:

One thing - the most important thing regardless if you are in that big bass boat or in a kayak is Time On The Water!!  There is no better way to learn.


The striped area on the attached map shows the area closed to only hunting.  But yes, the solid red indicated the "No Entry" areas.

Day trip for me also

General Discussion / Re: Alberto Knot - Tieing Braid to Fluoro
« on: November 05, 2018, 10:35 AM »
Not the same. I go thru the flouro loop with the braid, pinch them together, then wrap the braid ten times around the flouro, then back thru the loop the same way I went thru the first time, wet and gently draw up. Pull hard to test and snipe tag ends. It's strong and twice as fast to tie. .......Art

We need to get that on video some day and post it here
