Talquin March 2009

Recommended Posts

Heading down from the frigid north (-25 last week) for the full moon of March. Got the chip,, got the map,, got a place to stay and to launch.

Any information on usual spawn phase that time of year, and all the other good stuff would be appreciated.

Olebiker probably has the most experience on Talquin as anyone around here.  Hopefully he sees this.

Talquin will still be in pre-spawn at that time, but the fish will have largely moved from deep water to the flats in the major creeks and rivers.  Little River and Rocky Comfort (I love that name) are my favorite areas this time of year.

Plan to cover a lot of water with a lipless crankbait, but have a Carolina rig handy in case a cold front comes through.  Texas-rigged paddle-tail worms are a local favorite.

Yep. As I thought

Planning on flats by channels and also some creek backs.

Plastic kinda guy and was thinking 7-10 blkblu, redshad, watermelon type colors. Will toss lipless in shad, blu/white, and a sort of chartr shad. If the water has a bit of clear would love to throw some jerk baits.

Up here in clear water the storm 4" crappie rocks. I was wondering if its to stained for swimbaits.

Still hopeful to get the boat out,,if I can find open water!!!!

Most likly drag it to the Illinois river just to crank it up.

Truth is, My wife and I just want WARMER!

Last year we cancelled Arkansas because it flooded.

So we didn't do an early spring "warm" fishing trip.

Picked Talquin because for years it sort of beckoned to me.

Don't know why,, maybe stripers, bass and crappie,, but anyway

REALLY looking forward to,, well,, about 5 weeks from now

thanks
