Eloika Lake Fishing Report from Jerry’s Landing, Early September

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

This will be short because I can not find my notes.  I will try to find them and get a longer report on here.  Trying to squeeze too much into too little!

 

Bottom line, it continues to be a strange year.  The good news is the bass are still biting and have moved in closer to the shore. There were a couple four pound bass photos on the wall when I went in just before going to the Colfax (Palouse Empire) Fair last week.  Those were recent catches.  Black was the lure color they were hitting on.

The crappie were a bit slow but still a few nice ones coming out.  The Perch were pretty good and some had been caught off of their docks there. 

 

Jerry’s landing is going into its last couple weeks of the season so hurry on up and take advantage of their great service and especially of their knowledge of the lake.  Free at the public dock w/ no info or $3. to launch from Jerry’s Landing with an instant fishing report.  You tell me which is the better deal!

 

Also, September 19th, the local Kayak Club will be having their annual whing ding deploying from Jerry’s Landing.

I need to encourage them to each get a Kayak King Emmrod Compact Fishing Pole  http://www.mycompactfishing.com/cgi/commerce.cgi?search=action&category=KAYA to enhance their Kayaking and Kayak Fishing experience.  Actually, I think the Emmrod Packrod http://www.mycompactfishing.com/packrod-compact-fishing-poles is probably even more convenient.  In either case, the 7 coil rod  is probably the best bet as it is gentle enough to give you a lot of fun on the small fish but tough enought to handle the bigger bass and perch you might run into.  Also, keep in mind, those big Crappie are really scrappy and a tougher tip (7 vice 8) is probably still a good idea.  A second Rod that is great is the Top Water Rod which is great for the top water lures and give you more action. http://www.mycompactfishing.com/product/top-water-special-rod/1-1128.php

Enjoy the weekend and look for a new report next week.  Thanks! Dave Atherton
