Title: Martin Lake 4-12
Post by: Bush Hog on April 13, 2015, 02:34:39 PM
Had a few hours to kill before church yesterday afternoon so I hitched up the boat and took off.  My first hole was already taken by a couple gentlemen and they were doing well with minnows so I'm off to the second hole. Thump, Thump, Thump, 3 cast and 3 in the live well. Hot dog, I hit the jackpot and they quit.  Starting drizzling and I saw the two guys from hole 1 speeding off towards the boat ramp.  I scurried over there to pick up any crumbs they left and Thump, Thump, Thump, 3 more in the live well and then they quit on me too. Managed a couple more later for a stringer of 8.  It was a fun afternoon.  Martin Creek is a hot water lake and I'm thinking the crappie are already moving to their summer hangouts.  Sorry, no pics, I gave the fish to an elderly couple at the ramp and got some big smiles in exchange for them.  Good fishin!
