All Other Lakes / Patagonia 5/8-5/9
« on: May 09, 2019, 09:53 PM »
Was fortunate to fish Patagonia yesterday and today with some great company, IAMMAC and Crowbait.  We boated 15 crappie between the two days all but one nice keepers, mostly casting various jigs.

Tough day fishin but beautiful weather.  Only managed to boat one blacknose in 45ft of water on the tonto end.  Tried to replicate Art's success but he's a class above the rest.  Best part though was my daughter caught it on her rod with a pink and purple Kalins and it's a subspecies I've never even caught.  She's got one up on dad.

Well better than a month ago but tough sledding for us.  Hit some of our old areas from years ago with the water up and managed to catch fish but only one crappie on Saturday on the salt end.  Some beautiful weather though.
Watch out for rattlers, had one in camp and fishing partner ran another over on the way out of grapevine.

Took dad and a friend out, got up there pretty late.  Water is stained but I have seen worse.  18 in vis at Windy Hill, maybe 2-3 foot vis mid lake maybe a mile past the damn, little debris.  water temps 57 to 62. Hit my first waypoint and structure is in 40-45ft of water now.  Really only worked two areas and graphed a lot of fish but only a few short strikes to show for it. Got the skunk out of the way I hope and oddly enough there was a fresh one takin a nap in the road near top of the world.  I am superstitious too so now dead skunks on the way to fishing trips are going to be a bad omen for catch rates.  We used drop-shot minnows mostly but threw some jigs as well.  Dad caught a nice tree, that was fun to watch.  There were active fish too, some bass busting shad and lots of carp.  Couldn't have asked for better weather.

Had the privilege of sharing the boat today with Wheathin and Sparkchaser.  Beautiful day on the water with water temps 60-62 most of the day.  Launched out of ringtail and hit 6 habitats boating a mixed bag of about 25 fish.  Few gills, few LM, few nice SM, a channel cat, 9 crappie, one dead starting battery, and a loose wire to the front graph that drove us nuts for a good part of the day.  Maintenance bug seems to have bit me lately, last week's trip to Rosey started with a flat tire then a blown bearing.  Kept 8 crappie, nothing big.  All fish caught dropshotting minnows.  Had a great time putting some fish in the boat with some good company.

Wow is that lake down. Managed to find some fish in the agua fria arm dropshotting minnows and shad.  8 minutes after dropping the light first fish was a 9 inch crappie so I figured we managed to find a decent spot right off the bat. Next crappie didn't come for another hour and a half.  Ended up boating 55 white bass and 6 crappie.  However only 2 keeper WB and 3 keeper crappie out of the bunch, dinkfest.  Great night on the water though.

Saw this on game and fish website and found it intriguing.  Bet the club could do some damage up there.

Fished from about 7:30-3:30am, interesting night weather wise.  Calm, then wind, then wind from the opposite direction, then rain and a decent size bass tournament on the lake to boot.  We ground out 15 crappie and a gill near windy hill, 5 keepers but only one jumbo.  All drop shotting minnows and shad.

Last minute decision paid off. Boated 60 crappie last night with a buddy drop shotting minnows. Nothin big but kept 17. Mostly black crappie with a handful of white crappie. Forgot the name but burger joint off lake pleasant road was generous with minnows and opened later than most. Beautiful night on the water and almost as shocking as the number of crappie was not a single other was species caught

Got up to Roosevelt Friday afternoon and wind was howling.  Launched about 4:30 from Grapevine to see if we could find any fish before the derby Saturday.  Picked up one crappie in Y cove on a drop shot minnow so figured in that weather it was a good sign for Saturday.  Wrong, blanked on Saturday in perfect weather.  Hit Salome, the islands, the bridge, and Y cove again Saturday but nothing but bass.

Didn't get up there and on the water till 11:30 as we wanted to wait for the rain to pass.  Rain and fog almost the entire way to the lake then the clouds broke around the lake as we drove down the hill from globe.  Launched out of windy hill and stayed in that area till about 4:30.  Ran out of minnows but not a single crappie.  Caught 30+ small lm and my dad caught a 3lb smallie so still had some fun.  Most fish caught drop shotting minnows but I caught a few on castmasters and small jigs.

Fished the salt end today from about 9-4.  Ground out 7 crappie between 11-13 inches and a few rat bass dropshoting minnows. Missed several fish as well.

Don't wait till you get to the Bashas to get permits if you venture out, had to go back to globe.  Lots of debris still floating around, hammered a log mid lake barely submerged.  Worked hard all day and ended up picking up 5 late afternoon uplake.  Lake has come up big time and it was like learning a new body of water from the Carlos I'm used to but all this moisture should help for the next few years I think.

Alamo / Alamo 4/9

Boated 15 nice crappie a gill and a small bass.  Almost all fish were caught drop shotting minnows.  Missed a bunch of short strike bites and lost a bunch of minnows to tiny taps and slack as they sucked the minnows off our hooks.  Largest was right at 2lbs.  Overall great day out there again.  Probably my last for some time so made the trip worth it.

Picked up 28 nice crappie and 1 bluegill trolling double jig set ups tipped with minnows.  We seemed to do better than others but can't say what we were doing different.  Off the water by 1:30 when the wind picked up.
