Fished Quincy march 6th but wanted to get in on the conversation. Fished from 8:00 till 2:00 from a canoe.
Started out throwing cranks, jerks, spinners, and 5" sinking minnows down at the inlet w/ no success. My wife than tried dropshotting a roboworm and caught a huge bass....had to have been over 18"....took a picture and released. That was the only bass action of the day. We then switched over to trout fishing at about 10:00 am throwing lures in the bay on the opposite side of the lake from the ranger station. Caught one on a frog colored tasmanian devil. Than switched to plastic crawfish and got a bite just about every other cast. Caught a handful of small trout between the two of us. We had a hard time trying to hook stocker trout on a weedless setup but it was fun.

Fished Mar,9th... 9:30-2:30
Walked down East side throwing tubes and grubs with no bites. about half way around found a deep hole with rip rap along a portion of it. tied on a 3" twin tail grub with 1/4 bullet. caught 2 nice lrg mouth ( 16"and 18") and 1 trout 14". I must have missed 10 other fish. I was walking and thought I would keep working my way around but should have stayed in that spot longer and just back tracked to go home as its 4 miles to go all the way around only to get dumped out on Quincy for a nice up hill walk back to the truck. I didnt catch anything else during the walk,but met a guy who had a short period with trout. cant wait to get my buddy's boat out there!!!!!!!!!

I fished Quincy again yesterday, 3-11-05, but it was pretty slow. Got out there just before 7am and stayed until 11:30. Sun was out, no clouds, and was very calm for most of the morning. Fishing was pretty slow though. My buddy and I only ended up catching 3 trout. All were keepers, but all went back in for another day. Caught all 3 on an olive wolly bugger.

This is the way I fish it. First off use the hummer wooly bugger. It's the one with the little propeller on them. I usually pick them up at Sportman's in Thornton. Also, pick up some of those clear bobbers that you fill with water. The cheapest place I've found them is Wal Mart.

Slide a bobber on your line. Tie on a swivel. Then tie a leader onto the other end of your swivel, usually around 5 feet long and tie on the wooly bugger. Fill your bobber with water and your set.

Cast it out and let it set for about 10 seconds. This allows your bugger to sink. Then just reel in at a real slow pace. I've fished Quincy for the last 2 years and I use the olive wooly bugger 95% of the time. Have caught rainbows, largemouths, smallwouths, and yellow perch on it.

Those are called "Pistol Pete's", Cope. I use them, too. Olive, Black, and Brown all work well. The little green one with the red tail (forgot what they call it) isn't bad, either.

(Walleye will hit 'em, too!) ;)

Hey Yellow jackets!

Did you guys ever get back out on the ice? I've got one more trip to take and then it's all flyfishing. Good to see you on this board.
