Re: What is considered a "big" or "trophy" crappie?

I havent caught any over 12 inches this year yet! 12 inches is a nice crappie. My pb is 13.5. Usually dont get em that big in my local west side waters till august and september... when I find them trolling in the middle of the lakes/ponds.

Dann I was headed into the canals based on advice from a forum member the other day, and turned around due to that sign!

Re: Sort order of reports

Sorry about the confusion, but I believe they are sorted by "fished date" right now. Latest reports used to be sorted by "date posted". So, for example: "AMX takes 2 days to post his latest Lake Sawyer report, when he finally gets around to it, nobody will see it because 2 days of reports will show...

Re: Downrigger Weight Snubber Vs bumper

Scotty sells a snubber to install between the downrigger and ball. Its supposed to keep you from shock loading the downrigger line when lowering/stopping and snapping off the ball. Its also supposed to isolate the electrical field around the ball (if you buy into that kinda thing) I have never used ...

Re: Camping on river/lake banks

We would camp right on the beach with tents, campers and rv's with several boats and motorcycles at Moses lake, in the dunes all throughout the 1990's. They keep vehicles and campers way away from the water now (certain distance) and wouldnt let boats beach at all (10 years ago). Those rules could h...

Re: Lake Merwin fisherman, get in here...

Ive heard lots of good reports from over the last week! Good luck. Many also fish yale back to back and say yale is better action, smaller fish. Might be a little late, but brads kcp's and hochies in pinks and oranges seem to be very popular.

Re: Cutthroat Stink

I have kept a large cutthroat from a private 2 acre pond before that smelled and tasted foul. That specific bass pond hadnt been stocked with cutts for 30 plus years when the young kids at that time used to throw fish caught out of a local creek in there! It tasted just like you would think coming o...

Re: 12V portable bilge recommendations..?

My live well pump failed too! Ill be doing nearly the exact same repairs to our lund very soon. The flooring in ours is going to need work at the same time though. Getting soft. As far as I can tell, on my lund the entire surrounding consoles/compartment well have to be disassembled to remove and re...

species filter for lake index

Could you please add a species filter to the area info page, or the freshwater lakes index? If its not too much trouble. There is no way currently to search for lakes in Washington with crappie reports, or cutthroat reports, etc.. example: It would be extremely convenient, from the freshwater lake i...

Re: Vinyl-ish boat flooring..

They are definitely pop rivets, I can see the residual stem of the rivet shaft in one of the holes in the first pic. They might go all the way through into some kind of stringer or they have a rivet washer on the back side (assembles before panels installed?)

Re: 12V portable bilge recommendations..?

The diaphragm pump that is in the pics too is kinda nice because it works to fill a cooler for a short term live well if needed. Its way overkill though, I just had it around.

I have a diaphragm pump from an rv water system I use in my little boat. Just need to get the suction hose down there and it self primes. Alligator clips on the wire ends.

Re: Lake Roosevelt Kokes

Kokanee reports have been dismal lately (that I have read). One theory is that they collectively decided to become sockeye and head out to sea, over the dam I guess. There has been a decline in Kokanee though, in other parts of the state too. Hopefully they come back strong... I was too slow in gett...

Re: Clear Lake Kokanee?

Yup, not all lakes are the same. A Few degrees of climate change could certainly affect our smaller western lakes ecosystems differently than an ecosystem that has evolved in a warmer or colder climate. Also rather than climate change it is more likely imo recent weather patterns that have led up to...
