23 April 2015 - 08:48 AMGod going under the not so perfect conditions out there. At least you had some kind of action.
Yeah dealing with strong winds sucks but I have had some good days with strong winds. Just don't know when I'll have that good day where the fish are biting good so I just get out when I can.
23 April 2015 - 08:11 AMGot a fly rod for Christmas, and was working in the area, so I stopped in at Sylvan Glenn in Troy. Great place to practice casting. Very wide open and plenty of pan fish to catch.
Also got some very helpful advice from another guy there, he even gave me a fly to use. I used his advice and landed a few crappie and bass.
Just thought I'd throw it out there in case others are wondering where to start.
I'm new to fly fishing as well. Looks like a good place to fish. May I ask what type of flies is used there? Any other species to target as well? Any help appeciated. Thanks for the info.
If you use an ears hair or pheasant tail you will mostly catch bluegills. You will also catch an occasional bass or crappie.
21 April 2015 - 10:40 AMWhile on the subject of fishing lines. If I where to use a 17lb Flouro leader would that help me from bite offs from musky and pike? Or is a steel leader the only way to go?
19 April 2015 - 07:53 AMAnyone you find fisherman you will find garbage. They need to charge 10 bucks a day or an annual pass that will get rid of alot of the lowlifes that leave trash
Does not matter if they pay to get in or get in for free their will still be trash left behind. I see at lakes all the time where you have to pay to get in. Only way to get these slobs to stop leaving their trash behind is to start handing out littering tickets. I think after handing out $500 littering tickets they will get the message.
18 April 2015 - 07:18 AMNot sure were you are located but I think you can bowfish in some lakes in Oakland County. Not sure which ones allow it. I know Stoney Creek doesn't allow you too but usually in May I see them in the shallows thrashing around. I think this is when they are spawning.
