I am heading to Alex this weekend with friends and will be staying at Bigfoot Resort on Lake Mary. I am wondering if anyone has any info on what bait the eye's are biting on and where? Thinking about trying out Lake Miltona for eyes and maybe a muskie. That is if the weather cooperates. confused.gif

I think at this point you'll find crawlers to be the bait of choice on most lakes. On some of the lakes that will mean going through a ton of bait though, because most of the other fish like those too.

If you can get them to go on crankbaits, trolling or casting, that will eliminate the panfish other than possibly some nicer crappies.

One thing you can try too is use a Gulp crawler. I've had good luck using them and don't go through near as many to the panfish. Gulp has that new one out that floats, works good when the eyes don't want any hardware on the snell, and it will still keep your snell off hte bottom a little ways. cool.gif

Tom, we will be staying in cabin eight I believe. It was the house the owners used to stay in but they made it into a cabin and built a new house. We will be out in a fish and ski boat ,Larson 16 1/2 foot , white with black trim. Hopefuly we can share some information and help each other out. Look for the man drinking out of bubba keg.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
