The wind forecast is set to be 1-3 MPH tomorrow-it'll be a rare like glass day up there according to a few websites. Who is heading up tomorrow?

How has the northern mud been going?

I am trying to. But it may be Sunday, which may turn into a scorcher. Can you say topwater smallies???? Hope they are active.

It has been fantastic. However, I just got back from the pond and the bite has noticeably and progressively slowed down over the past week (at least for me). If you go to the right areas and work the correct presentations, you're still going to catch fish. It's just not going to be the "bite of the century" type action we've seen over the past few weeks. Most of the public landings are still jam packed though, so expect the worst in terms of putting in and getting out. It was already a mad house this afternoon, and will only get worse tonight. To be honest, it was kind of nice to get back to the peace and quiet of the city. smile.gif

Friday started out as a reallly slow day for my boat of 4. We fished the south end covering Spririt, Sloppy Joes 4 mile and ended up on the very eastern tip of Indian Point/Rainbow island. With the SE wind the fish were tough but in the 4 - 9 PM hours things picked up considerably. Had a few trophy fish and many slotters. Only managed 4 keepers. The leech outfished the crawler 10 -1. Until we went to slip bobbers, we had a tough time. The 9 foots snells and spinners just did not produce as well. Wishing I was going back today, have fun!

      Seen a post from last night that the front of a truck went thru at the access in Walker, so Poutfest is in doubt.

      Fished this weekend around Vergas for Tuilibees and ice conditions were loking good till sunday mid day.  The public access are getting chewed up quickly and PLEASE use caution going onto a lake if you are driving.  The next 24 hours will not be friendly for our accesses and sadly if someone is going to fall through it's going to be right out in front of one.  I fished Big Pine on Sunday and found a hole that had been created 4" and I could shove the handle of my ice scoop down 24" without a problem.  It wasn't there when I parked 3-4 hours earlier.  Fishing in the area was slow but fish were very curious and chasing lures.  Saw a bunch of guys our chasing crappies and with how quickly they were moving they weren't having much luck.  We found them on big pine and they were very lathargic.  Saw them on camera and they were barely moving around.  Thought with the water running down the holes they'd be feeding like crazy and that wasn't the case.  We caught a decent amount of tuilibees nothing like last weekend but a ton of SMALL ones.  Few a bunch back down the holes.  I'll be hitting it hard this up coming weekend but I'm using a four wheeler to drive around and I'm hoping Wednesday-Friday morning is going to freeze up hard enough to make it safe.  I have 20-25 guys coming up for a pro staff get together so need to find lakes to try out and explore.   Tight Lines and PLEASE STAY SAFE!

      Fished Big Pine Sunday afternoon.  Drove out Saturday and checked ice conditions and they looked great so decided Sunday was go.  Got there and set up for crappies and instantly had a nice fish and it wrapped up in the transducer and I lost him.  That was my highlight.  We set the house up to block the wind since the girlfriend was with and trying to make it fun for her.  When we tore down wow did the lake look different!  We found a hole that we could shove the hole of the ice scoop down  24" and it didn't hit anything.  It wasn't there when we started fishing!  Water was murky as heck and lots of floaters in the water.  Fish were LATHARGIC! saw them on camera and they barely moved through the water swimming around.  Usually we have our camera 4-5 feet away from the jig with perfect clarity not the case this weekend 4' away and we never found our spoon!  Coming off the ice the access was getting chewed up but was still passable.  People need to slow down!  We got passed by a pickup doing 30-35 twice!  We were taking it around 10 mph and was causing waves in the water.  Wont be driving back out until there is a good freeze for a while!

      It's worth a try. I found all mine right next to my house like a foot or less I did find some that were 6-7 feet away. Good luck!

      I'm going to look too. Yard is wet and there should be a few around. Be a good time to try the shock method.
