Will be heading up this week and staying at Stony Point Campground. Lookig for a close spot for sunnies and bass for the kids. Really it is for the kids. Any info would be helpfull. Thanks

If you want action for the kids, try getting right up in the pencil reeds and do some vertical jigging with small jigs for bluegills. Downsize the hook size to ensure better hooksets and tip with a chunk of worm to speed up the action. I know that Sucker Bay yields some big gills this time of year and would suspect that it is probably the same story almost anywhere on the lake. Also, don't overlook fising just outside those same areas for Largemouth. Plastic worms, jig and minnow or spinnerbaits can all yield some beautiful bucketmouths and could provide a youngster with a fish of a lifetime. Good luck

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
