i put in at cove about quarter past noon or so. it was nice. the vehicle traffic that has been there so far this year wasnt there today. parking was still pretty packed. i just started heading out toward spirit island going slow to see if i could mark any fish to see what depths...or a fishable school. it seemed like 21.5ft was the ticket. at 3 i released a 14" that would of been my fourth keeper. well, its the old saying, "one in the pan is better than two in the bush." i fished until about 7 and released a nice 20-1/2" & healthy 25". i never did get that 4th keeper... i just couldnt go back in after only fishing a little over 2 hours... the bugs were a nussance when there was no wind. but when the wind blew a little they went away. it blew from the south then switched to the north...still not much of one. i was using about a 9ft snell, red hook (that was gold when i quit...) and a chartreuse bead with a jumbo leech. i didnt try anything else because i was content catching what i did.

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
