Hello everyone.

 

I made a quick visit to Jerry’s Landing at Eloika Lake, Spokane County, Washington today. I wanted to take a couple photos of what was working. My photo for the crappie, sunfish and perch bait came out so fuzzy as to be worthless. I will try to replicate it later.   To the left is a photo of the sign at the entrance to Jerry’s Landing. Check them out. 

 

Here is the view from the driveway looking in at the resort.  The dock in the center is one of two docks they have where you can fish.  Based on the boats there, I think you can also make long term docking arrangements.  Give them a call and ask if that is what you need.

I asked Lauri what was biting and here is her report.  The crappie and perch are a bit slow.  The bass are biting pretty well. Seems like the middle of the lake was one of the better spots for them.  Stop by and pick up supplies and get your boat in the water.  $3.00 is pretty cheap when you factor the fishing tips you’ll get into the mixture.  Why waste time when you can go directly to where the fish are biting?

Sorry for the poor quality of this photo.   This has a very light weight of about 1/80th of an ounce on it and can be used to jig, reel in slowly, on a bobber or with a worm attached as well.  For the crappie, play it about two feet down.  For the perch, try about 4 to 6 feet down. This next photo is a great lure for the bass.

  You can throw it out and drag it back slowly.  You do not want it too deep in the water.  A couple of inches should be adequate.Second photo of this bass lure for Eloika Lake…………………Here  is another photo of this bass lure for Eloika Lake which gives another angle.Great Bass Lure for Eloika Lake……………..Here is yet another option for Bass.  This plastic worm seems to work well both in the water and then on top of the lily pads.  In the later option, you cast the lure onto the lily pad and jiggle it.  The Bass will come up out of the water to get the worm.  I guess they might see some of the shape of the lure from under the water and combined w/ movement, it becomes irresitable.
