what are current hours
is it cool enough yet
Aaron and I were just there. I caught 2 of my personal best today.
11lb channel cat
7lb Blue Cat
Today the big cats wanted blue gill... the small cats wanted shad. Was weird like that.
Couldn't catch a bluegill with a castnet to save my life today.. caught ton of shad though! Aaron fished for bluegill while I threw the net.. was working pretty good.
Congrats on your 2 new PB's. Glad you had a good time. I do have to ask: what the heck were you doing in the front of the boat? At least 3 times I heard something that sounded like a cordless screwdriver:confused2: You brag about your new PB's here, but you hold out secrets from the rest of the group. What on earth were you doing up there? :wink::smile2:
I already told you... *censored* :wink:
I could go back tomorrow and just bank fish just for the sake of fishing. LOL But it is 11pm now, i know my tune will change when it comes morning!
2 days in a row of bright and early is tooooo much. I need a day to sleep my butt off. LOL
I hear ya. I've had some good days bank fishing Baldwin. The boat ramp can be good, as well as down in the hot water corner.
Aaron, you did'nt catch anything? Did'nt I show you enough? :big_smile:
Brian, How did you catch them? Drifting or tightlining?
Drifting is what we did
We probably caught 8 decent cats between 4 and 11 pounds, a combination of channels and blues. There were a few dink channels and one drum (guess who caught that one? Hint - it wasn't me!) :smile2:
We would have stayed the rest of the day, but the waves started picking up and I had to go with my wife to a party that evening. We called it quits around 2 or so. We drifted on the north side, more or less in line with our secret landmark :wink:
Hope to go again in 2 weeks. If you get a chance to go, catch a big un!
my son brotherinlaw and i ended up there around 5pm and stayed till closeing
i had 1 nice hard hit and a few tugs with cut gill .
caught about 8 dink channels tryin for gill with wax worms. yeah those waves where nice and strong . we banked it right there over the levee near the bank fisher parking to the right.
wasn't real successful but had fun getting out after a long week.
hope i run into you guys up there sometime.
anyone know what the current hours are and if Baldwin Lake is open on Thanksgiving???
The hours have been smacked now... 8am to 4pm.
Sorry about not getting back to you earlier - I just saw your post. Hours at Baldwin are:
January 1 - February 15: 8 AM - 4 PM
February 16 - April 15: 6 AM - 7 PM
April 16 - October 31: 6 AM - 9 PM
November 1 - December 31: 8 AM - 4 PM.
I believe they are also closed on New Years Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
