The frogs stuck out like a sore thumb, easy-peasy as they sat along the edge of the lake. Aggressive to the hook and almost addictive this frogging. Wetook turns fishing them but in a short time we had 15-16 “hoppers” caught and a limit (8) in the ice down bucket of the nice 5-6” croakers. Then it was time to fish for Bass, Bluegill and Green Sunfish. We both rigged up a rod with a Satra Special rig on the line with a medium leech. We tossed into 2- 3’ of water near a known drop off dropping to depths of 12’. Instantly, we were catching fish on the ultralights. A dozen 10-14” bass, small Bluegill and Green Sunfish were caught, and lots of fun was had. A good morning for birding, bird photography, catching bullfrogs and fish from the boat!
Busy night catching fish for these 2 anglers - they caught and landed 90+fish - a very good bite! We caught lots of small Bluegill 5”-6.5” in size, and Green Sunfish from 4”-7” we found in 5’-12’ of water fishing with jigs, Satra Special rigs, and slip bobbers tipped with leeches and Euro nightcrawlers. The guys caught numerous Bass of all sizes, 11-12 fiddler Channel Cats and a handful of small Black Bullheads. Father and son had a great time catching fish and learning new techniques to catch fish. Nice evening of fishing with a light breeze. The rock breakwaters and drop offs to 8’ were “hot” late as the sun was setting. They kept a handful of fiddler Channel Catfish to stink the skillet! Otherwise Catch and Release the fish! It is always fun to explore the variety of aquatic habitats and structures that Conestoga has to offer!
