Default Maple Lake(1/7/2017) - fine, if you do not mind dink gills

You live by the cribs, you die by the cribs. Today the cribs held nothing but dinks, most being in the 4 - 5'' range. A few 'monsters' that ran 6 to 6.25 inches and that's it. There was a rumor someone may have caught some crappie in the double crib that is SSE of the point.

I was using waxies, crappie nibbles and even 1'' gulp minnows. Waxies would catch them one after the other, crappie nibbles had bites now and then and even landed some. Caught one gill on the gulp minnow and just had a few other bites.

PalosBob was also out there, using plastics. Pretty much nothing since the fish were too small to handle the plastic tails he was using. He did catch a warmouth bass I believe (picture further down).

Had the DNR out, that was nice to see. I asked about local lakes and he had no news in terms of anyone catching anything.

Typical gill:


Larger one:


Warmouth Bass??

Definately a bluegill x green sunfish hybrid. The black patch at the back of the dorsal is indicative of a bluegill hybrid. Pumpkinseed can also hybridize with green sunfish but it would be sans black dorsal patch. Sunfish hybridization is a funny thing I tell ya.

I did not think there was any green sunfish "in there" as I do not see any of the tell tale 'blue stripes' on its head. Perhaps a warmouth hybrid?
