Im heading up this week just wanted to see if any one has any fishing reports from the area.

Reports are sporadic, bass have been doing well, but walleye have been touch and go. They are still shallow and no reports of them on the reefs, yet. If we can get this wind to lessen, maybe a person could find them consistantly! confused.gif

Troll the shorelines. Look for rocky points that work into back bays. Have one person cast the shore while the other trolls some sort of rig. Jackfish has some great drifting runs. If the wind is blowing parellel to the shore, throw on some rigs and get ready to rock. Another option is to find some current. Jig the areas that narrow down and cut one body of water off from another. I know this post doesn't help that much because you are asking for fishing reports in the area, but if I was going up to fish that particular part of Basswood for Walleyes, that is what I would go for. Hopefully this helps...

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
