Walleyes are still hitting, again and again and again. The walleyes have become so aggressive many boats are hiring local kids along with the unemployed just to run the net as it is a full time job when targeting walleyes in 5-7 ½ feet of water with 1/8 oz jigs tipped with shiners under bobbers worked by the wave action. Many anglers are also reporting success working bright colored jigs aggressively along the bottom.

The crappie bite becomes more difficult as the crappies slowly begin to disperse into the deeper waters. Although many fish currently remain shallow and grouped up for the angler that is willing to work several spots looking pockets or schools of active crappies. Bets reports as of lately are coming from anglers working 1/16 oz jigs under bobbers tipped with small shiners suspended 18 inches off the bottom.

The waters are finally starting to warm up and the pike are liking it. Pike are still on the sluggish side and yet to fully but on the feed bags although the pike fishing gets better and better every day. The best results have come from anglers jig fishing larger plastic on heavy jigs such as the Stick-Um jigs, Esox jigs and J-Mac jigs. Blacks, browns and the old standby orange dropped into 4 feet of water and hopped back into 6 feet of water appear to be what these gators are looking for in a mid day snack.

Good Luck and enjoy the outdoors.

Jonny, what about the SHEEPHEAD, you can,t forget the wonderful SHEEPHEAD. Darn near the preetiest, tastiest, and most aggresive fighters in the lake. Boil them then pass the butter. tongue.gif

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
