Stony Creek 10/30
« on: November 06, 2018, 07:16:03 AM »

   The day started out well. With air temps in the lower 40s, the lake was flat calm. Dan and I had not expected that. The wind would pick up later in the morning and would make it feel much cooler than the predicted high of mid 50s.
   I got the catching started pretty early with a Largemouth around 2 1/2 pounds. Hit a drop shot worm in about 10 feet of water. Not too much later I caught a second bass at the same depth. Somewhere in there I hooked a pike. Dan was happy that I caught it instead of him. Iím a little foggy about the time the pike was landed because after we switched spots around mid-morning, Dan knocked me woozy with a blade beat down.
I think I might have caught a dink or 2 on a drop shot after the move but canít remember as I was too busy trying to keep the boat on our spot and taking pictures of Dan catching bass.
   He caught nice Largemouth on 3 different blades in 10í-14í of water. I tried a couple of different blades but couldnít get a sniff.
   The memory limit only allows me to post a few of the pix.

The blade bait is definitely a go to lure this time of year.  Looks like you guys had a fantastic day of fishing.  Congrats

Which ones? Dan used 3 different blades. He started out with a Silver Buddy lookiní thing. He switched to that bluish one. Then when the bite on that one slowed down he switched to the gold colored blade. Maybe he will comment on which ones he used.
Do you make blades? I need to improve my selection.

Just called the office there and they started drawing down in October. A couple of weeks ago when we went, the level looked a little high to me. I think it had rained a lot that week.

The woman I talked to said the lake is down around a foot.

I make a ton of blade baits.... I gave Dan a bunch if I'm remembering correctly. None of those in the pics are mine. That is why I posted.  ;)

It's all good...  8)

Thanks for posting something cameraguy! I'm doing worse than terrible at posting fishing reports this year (obviously!) but I have posted pics and short stories most days on my Instagram (@greatlakesbass www.instagram.com/greatlakesbass/), Twitter (@GreatLakesBass twitter.com/greatlakesbass) and Facebook (@greatlakesbass www.facebook.com/greatlakesbass).

If I remember right, the water temp was already down to a chilly 43 degrees that day. I definitely remember I had a BLAST!!! 2nd best day ever on Stony for me (though you have to remember I've only fished it since about midsummer this year)! The blue-silver Bullet Blade was the smoking hot one for much of the day. Bigger profile for a comparable lighter weight due to being tin instead of lead. Softer vibration too I think. Different fall.

I don't recall 3 blade baits...?? But I don't recall lots of things... thought I started with the blue-silver Bullet Blade. I did switch to the gold foil later and caught a few on that too. Only appear to have 1 of the blue-silver Bullet Blades left. I think I have more somewhere but who knows where... I remember thinking the night before that The Spot would probably be where we ended up catching almost all our bass. I was excited about getting there...

I also remember thinking (the night before and several earlier nights!!) with that shallower, soft-bottomed weedy lake that Stony is maybe a lighter blade would turn the bass on. But the bass are average good quality so I wanted a bigger blade - hence the tin Bullet Blade.

Maybe I started out with the more typical blade bait style at first and don't remember that. I think I had the regular style - someone's homemade one - on the previous time we fished Stony recently. Think I caught a small bass on it that day... maybe?

Sure was a fun day for me. I really appreciate cameraguy sticking it out when I wasn't as much fun for him! I had a great time!! Makes me want to fish some more...

Sorry 21XDC, they were hitting the Bullet Blades so well I didn't even think to try a different brand or type. When it ain't broke, don't fix it!

But, I have been using the ones you gave me quite a bit the past couple weeks! Caught a handful of small bass (all we caught, not counting icky pike) on a the lighter weighted silver one you gave me. I think you gave me 2 weights - light and 'regular.' Thanks again - I appreciate it! Helps to have a variety to try!

I tracked down and pulled out a few of the actual Silver Buddy's I own and I've been cycling between Bullet Blades, your blades (mostly the light size lately due to fishing locations), some homemade ones another buddy gave me and the Silver Buddy's looking for the hot bite of the day each day!

About a week ago, I had one of your light blades in gold tied on because I was fishing pretty shallow on Round around scattered weeds. I hooked one of my Big Toads on it I had on that day fishing a small sand drop near weed patches! BIG largemouth was easily 5+!! It was the one I lost because I was fumbling for the net (lip-hooked) and let it snag me on my anchor line!! $%@#$%!!

I had to watch it flop around off the anchor rope about 1 foot below my net before it pulled off the hook! Hopefully, I will catch it later... I've only had a tiny number of blade bites my last few days out. Been a mix of hits on the Silver Buddy, the Bullet Blade and your blades.

One of these days I want to watch you work some of those big beautiful blades you make. I'm very intrigued! I actually like blade bait fishing when I'm getting bit, but it bores me to death before long if I'm not finding the bass or getting them to bite my lure... I have to switch around to stay awake!! Which means sometimes I put down all the blades too just for something different to do... I have been getting about as many bites the past few days on a mix of darters and lipless cranks shallow as well though I'm trying to spend my time looking out off the break for 'The Mother Lode.' ;D

When the water is cold, There is no better lure than a blade bait. PERIOD!  If you are not getting bit, You need to move or fish it slower.... That is all there is to it.  ;)
