Falcon Lake Fishing Report

May 3, 2017

Today the "usual" wind was suppose to blow until around noon and then begin to slow down, which has been the pattern for a few days now. But, the wind actually was very mild this morning, and by noon, it was absolutely calm.  Air temps seemed to really jump when we lost our breeze. And actually, it was only 98°, compared to the 100+° days we've been having.  For the majority of the morning, we fished under partly cloudy skies.

Today we launched at the State Park. We are launching on only one of the three ramps that are normally available. That's another thing that is affected when our lake is being drawn down. Our launching capabilities become difficult.

There is still water in the channel leading out to the main lake, but it's slowly disappearing.

45 fish were boated today. We did not have any big fish today. We also lost and missed alot of fish, actually probably about as many as we caught.

We decided to quit fishing for bass around 10:30 this morning and do something different. We actually went Crappie fishing. Within a hour and a half, we caught 25 good sized Crappie. Here on Falcon, a Crappie has to be at least 10" in length and your possession is 25 per person.

After catching these thin mouthed Crappie, we went looking for more bass. There sure is a difference fishing for Crappie, when your custom to fishing for bass.

For the bass we caught, moving baits and finesse rigs were productive.

The areas we fished had good water clarity.

Water temps were in the low 80's. As we continue to move towards summer with these warm days, our water temps will continue to increase.

There's something about fishing on a beautiful morning and watching horses grazing.  These horses caught our eye.

Thanks for the report and pictures Robin. 
One question I have is what did you do differently to entice the Crappie bite?  
When I lived in New Jersey I would fish for crappie in January and February using small jigs and twitching a floating crank bait. Since I have moved to Virginia I think I have only caught one crappie, but I am not usually targeting them either.  
The Charm of Fishing is that it is the Pursuit of what is Elusive, but Attainable. A Constant series of Occasions for Hope !

Thanks for the report and great pictures. Wow I'm not sure i could take that fishing in 100* anymore. I just got back from my Crappie fishing trip and we are can keep 10 over 10" and 5 under 10" but we only keep them if they are over 9 & 1/2"
