I think you're going to have a hard time getting coordinates from anyone.

Get the lakemaster map and it has general coordinates for the flats, rocks, etc. It shouldn't cost you more than $20 or I think the Tut's maps have coordinates too.

If you're not sure where to go, let the masses help you. There should be enough boats around the rest of the year to help you find fishy spots.

Sloppy Joes, Banana, 7 & 5 mile have been worthwhile, especially the deeper edges away from the mud. Try 30+ feet during the day.

I wouldn't trust any coordinates you get from this crowd. We tend to not give up the hot spots. You can ask about tactics, areas (Sand, Gravel, Mud), but that is about as specific as you are going to get on the open forum. Someone may email you them, but even so, you are better off finding your own. Use the main areas as mentioned above, venture around a bit and you will find your own honey hole. Using other people's coordinates don't help you enough because it doesn't teach you the current pattern or specific day's bite conditions. Be flexible and find your own way, you will enjoy it much more than relying on someones coordinates from 2 years ago where they caught 15 fish.

VEXI,

That is like asking what the lotto numbers for next week are going to be grin.gif.

You sure get an A+ for trying.

I would get out to the pond and do like they said above. Soon enough you will build your own way points for hot spots. Then you can report back and let us know what they are grin.gif.

Good luck!!!!!!

I would say asking for fishing GPS points on a publish fishing forum is like asking for someone's bank account information.

The H20 uses the mapping chips. Get the lakemaster chip and use it to identify breaklines on flats or other structure that might be fun to fish. Go from there. Either that or get to know people, fish with them multiple times, become friends, and then they MIGHT get you those coord's! smile.gif

Get the lake master maps and mark spots as you here them on here Sloppy Joes, etc. The main thing is just because someone gives you a coordinates does not mean it is the right spot to always catch fish. Weather, wind, water temp time of year change these things. I don't mind giving out coordinates the main thing you need to know is when and how to fish those spots which I and others tend to keep to themselves. Good luck.

Rodmaker,

My cousin got in trouble with the wife at the last minute. He apparently forgot to ask permission. I told him that was his first mistake, not asking to go with a wife and 2 kids is like telling me your going to give up the hot coordinates, it just isn't going to happen. I swear, I am never going to make it up to ML. I am going to the cabin this weekend (Pelican), but that is with the family, so I will just have to fish there for the time being.

It's easier to ask for forgiveness than permission. But you have to get out of the house first.

That's my tactics... Hope she doesn't read this.

      I found fish on Friday like the old days it was a lot of fun but I decided not to deal with the slush and the sled on Sat.  I heard that may of been a good decision because I heard people burning out their sleds in the slush, running them wide open just to barely move.     Nothing like sledding in a rain storm, I guess to find them it has to be painful.

      HI ... I was out on a Lake Saturday Morning and two guys I noticed were catching nice Crappies hole hopping with electronics of coarse.  Finally after a bit from a semi far distance (far enough to not be able to see color but know it was the vertical spoon ones) I asked what they were using as they were packing up.  "Forage minnows no bait" one said.   So my question/s is?   Has any one fished Crappies with these?  I am a pug bug plastics guy here for Pan fish.  What particular colors has anyone had success with?   I am assuming the smaller spoon but I see they come with treble hook and or single hook?   Bob

      Thank you for the zip code, for the last 3 years I lose the tailgator reception at night around 8 I never know what zip code to try I sure hope it works.  All day everything is fine, evening comes I lose signal.

      I used the thumbnail method with all but the heavier split rigs.  If you're doing a bunch it gets sore.  I then use a small eye glass screw driver.  Once I get it started to remove the old one I slip the new one in behind it.  One falls off and the other on.   Careful, those small trebles are hard to hang onto and sticky sharp.

      really neat to see the lake from the aerial view!  Cool to see all the roads and the paths out there.  Kinda fun to look at the road systems and name what resort they are from...
