Im jealous.

I'm jealous that you can bass fish.  I can't legally do that yet.  I would rather bass fish than panfish.  Right now crappies are one of the only legal targets until May 13.

I caught a Michigan Master Angler crappie today! He was really close to 15 inches, and the master angler requirement is 14 inches. I also caught a small bass that wanted the Vision 110.

Born to fish, forced to Wipe(r)

 

Finally found something other than gar feeding on the threadfin spawn. Things seem to be slowing down a bit in the spawn areas I'd found, but I assume it won't fully be done until after 5/5 full moon. Work for the next five days so no fishing

My first outing of the season was pretty good. Caught about 25 crappies with a few quality sized slabs mixed in. I have a crappie contest on Saturday so at least I have a plan.

Catching these squawfish from the bank just to feel the tug until the lakes around my place melt.

I've never even heard of or seen that type of fish, beautiful fish.   Doesn't even look like anything I've seen.

They are a "western" fish (a large predatory minnow).  Another name for them is Pike Minnow.  There are several species (three or four, I think).  We have a Sacramento Pike Minnow where I live, but there is also a Colorado Pike Minnow, and a Northern Pike Minnow (there might be another).

Fished in a crappie contest with a friend today.  We caught about 40 of them, and the biggest was my 12 1/4 incher.  Caught on both minnows and plastics.  My friend Jason was invited up on stage for an interview after he weighed his.

ok guys as you know I always trout fishing while fishing for bass. In last overnight I catch a trout and the patterns are different from all other rainbows I catch before. Look we have all the spots everywhere even on the belly and they are very big spots(the diameter), Does anyone knows what kind of rainbow it is?

Rainbows can have all kind of variations of spots, especially stockers. Same species just a skin variation

Had some fun catching white bass this A.M on largemouth lures. Woke up at 3 am and was on my spot around 6:30. Start off by throwing a painted spinnerbait. Nothing. I make a move 25yds to my left and then I start catching these white bass, starting with the most violent spinnerbait strike I've ever gotten. I catch the four photo'd plus a couple more.

Now, at this time, I'm starting to feel bad. I am catching nice white bass but have nothing to keep them in. I've thrown my four back. But look, another boater is heading towards me, right as I'm reeling in the third fish from three consecutive casts. I talk to him and let him know that if he'll take my white bass, I'd like to give them to him, so that they are not thrown back. He agrees; he's fishing for white bass too. So I go and catch nine more with many more biters or ones that shook me off, and then give him all nine. You can see 7 in the photo; two are underneath my seat. I was done fishing for those white bass by 8 A.M. Went fishing for largies after. No luck, and don't care. Cool experience with a fish that I can't recall hardly ever catching before. Shad were loaded in the area that I was fishing.

P.S next time I'm bringing a cooler myself. I was glad to give my fish to this gentleman, but I want them for myself now. Gotta eat!

Why? lol. Because spinnerbait? He told me he catches em on a spinner too, just not largemouth or smallmouth.

 

Most my fish were on a crankbait though.

Using a spinner widget to put meat in his belly.....it's like he would solve nuclear fusion with that deal

I had no idea what was happening at first. I'm not familiar with white bass. So the first fish slammed the spinner and I just thought "What the heck is that????!!" "Gotta be a catfish or something" "No it ain't fighting like one and it's coming up some too" "Gotta be a bass" "Uhhh that ain't like any bass I've seen" ?.

 

Yeah, I was fishing for largies but at the end of the day, I found a boatload of shad and some of their predators, so, all good by me. I could have stayed there and continued to catch lord knows how many white bass.

@LrgmouthShad white bass are a hoot. I'll happily catch them as long as they wanna bite.

They bent my rods over pretty good! Certainly were fun to fight. I can only imagine how fighting them on light spinning gear would be. 
 

I want to catch a bunch the next time I go out for food, and then maybe use some of them whole or cut as catfish bait.

 

As long as shad continue spawning, I think I should find them in the same place the next morning I’m out

Some other species from a brief weekend trip. Trout was targeted, some nice crappie were by- catch. Both were cooked, the trout was very good.
