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.

      Was the bad rotator cup cause from catching to many big fish?If that's the case I'll take one for the team

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
