With conditions the way they are right now, I wouldn't even carry any plastics.

Anyone been catfishing?? I'm thinking this weekend.

I've been catfishing. My 6 and 9 year old have been more eager than ever to join me on my fishing trips. The result has been lots of pan fishing and catfish action. It's a lot easier to dead stick than chunk baits at there age. They also enjoy gathering bait for catfish so it's a win win.

Hipster78 whats the reasoning behind not using plastics. I went this morning and managed three 12" smallies on mepps spinners.

When the water gets down in the mid 40s I will throw them. Personally I don't enjoy throwing plastics, it slows me down. This time of year I would rather cover more water and pick off the active fish than sit on one area and pick it apart. I fished for two hours in northern Michigan over the weekend and caught an 18" and 20"er, only bites I had.

There are many, many Hellgramites in the river.

In the last few weeks, I have been using the Arkie Helgie jig with literally dozens of Bass C&R.
