I have fished Duck Lake like 18 times now and haven't caught a fish. I hear all these reports and see all these fish being caught but I never have any luck. I am thinking about getting out there in the next week or so to give cold water crappie a shot.
Anyone got any pointers for to try? I have tried worms with no weight, a sliding sinker with worm casting to the middle of the open area at the north park, not Chinook. Bobbers and worms, jigs, plugs, spinners, everything I can think of. Only bite I have ever gotten was running a shallow crawdad plug over the weeds and it was a pretty nice sized perch, had it for 1 second and gone.
I was also wondering how the weed kill is effecting the fishing? I talked to someone at city hall there and he said that the fish are really starting to move and that the numbers are up from what they have been seeing in the past few years before starting to kill the weeds.
