Roosevelt / LTF Crappie Tournament
« on: January 13, 2019, 08:29 PM »
I got a call this afternoon from Tracy Purtee of Let's Talk Fishing and because of the government shut down he can not obtain a permit for 2/23. He is scheduling the tournament for Saturday, March 16th out of Badger at Windy Hill. I'm meeting with Tracy next Saturday and should have most of the details that evening. The entry fee per two man teams will be all in for $80 and pay back one spot for each three teams. .....Art

We fished today from 9:30 until 1:15 and sadly again we never got a bite. We visited four habitats and three had plenty of fish while the fourth had almost nothing. Trying times! .........Art

We fished yesterday from 9:45 until 2:15 on five habitats including two of the new ones. We caught 2 nice crappie and 2 lm bass on our 3' Ugly Stick fun poles on jigs. Some habitats had mucho fish and a couple had hardly any. Now more storms but will try again Tuesday, weather permitting. ........Art

I fished yesterday with Kasey and my oldest son. Rick (visiting from Pa.), from 10 until 1:15 and the fish were in government shut down for us! Fishing three habitats Kasey caught a bass and Rick a crappie and I zipped. My friends Jack and another Rick also had 1 crappie when we left but said the bite turned on shortly after. They fished eight or nine habitats and caught 14 crappie and a couple other species on minnow tipped jigs. Late bite! Merry Christmas to all. ........Art

Barometer still misbehaving! Kasey and I fished yesterday from 9 until 1, 80% for crappie and 20% for bass. Fishing two of our favorite habitats we never got a bite for crappie but caught 4 lm bass on RoboWorms. Today Eddie and I fished from 8:30 until 1 on two habitats in the Salt. Again no bites for crappie and only 1 3 pound lm bass. All habitats are loaded with dormant crappie. It's just a matter of time. .....Art

The barometer was 29.95 when I went to bed Wednesday night and 30.20 when I left the house Thursday morning making a very tough day at the office! We fished three habitats loaded with fish from 8 until 1 and caught 1 crappie and a six or seven pound channel cat. They just wouldn't bite. We had the lake to ourselves proving most people are smarter than me!  Kasey and I may try again Sunday if the barometer stabilizes. ......Art

We fished today from 8:15 until 1:15 on the Tonto end and they had a severe case of lock jaw! On the first habitat at 8:50 I caught 2 nice crappie on back to back drops and that was it for the day! We fished three habitats that were loaded with fish but no takers.  ........Art

Roosevelt / Crappie Respect
« on: December 09, 2018, 07:32 AM »
I put this on this venue so all could read it. I think crappie fishing has gained a lot of respect in Arizona in recent weeks! Johnny Johnson had his first crappie show a few weeks ago and told me he had more good feed back than in recent years and plans to do more in the future. The show will re-run sometime around or after the holidays. The Crappie Habitat Seminar at Bass Pro Shop last Wednesday went very well, both in attendance and pod cast hits, and their planning a possible spring crappie seminar. I'm told you can watch a repeat of the seminar on Azanglers facebook site. Then Tracy Purtee announced a crappie tournament (permit pending) for Roosevelt Lake on Saturday, February 23rd. If it draws enough interest he may form a three tournament mini crappie circuit. It's good to see crappie starting to get the respect it deserves in Arizona as it's big east of the Mississippi but mostly unknown out here. Feel free to comment. .......Srt

Very tough fishing yesterday as these weather and barometer yo-yoing locked them up. In four and a half hours of fishing on three habitats we caught 3 crappie and 3 nice bass. Two other crappie boats reported no fish! Hope to see you all at Bass Pro Shop tonight. ........Art

Matt Shura and I fished today under a rapidly falling barometer and blustery conditions. We fished from 9:30 until 2 on five habitats catching 10 crappie and 6 lm bass. Matt's going to add crappie to his guiding service and he will do great! We had quite a show from the Air Force with a C130, Blackhawk chopper, 7 parachutes, and pick up boats. .......Art

We lost our touch!? We fished today from 7:30 until 2:30 and they had lockjaw. Fishing five habitats we ended up with 7 crappie, 2 lm bass, 1 bluegill, and 1 cat. I'm going habitat hopping with Matt Shura Thursday and hopefully they will be more hospitable. ........Art
