Anyone fish here lately? I might try to fish it this thursday but I've never been on it before. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

If you have a boat? Its been slow, and the water has been really low. Come to launch early, only limited amount of trailer parking always filled by 5-5:30pm. I live close by and lots of cars always getting ticketed for trailer on grass, handicap parking, parking at bend etc. Its not that there are too many boats there, just stupid plain cars dun park in park parking lot but in boat trailer stalls. Make sure to trim motor up, and go slow until your fully out (midway through the weedy sections). Average of 1.5-2ft 50 yrds out. Water has been murky lately. Good luck bud.

Was out a few time last week, what are you going for? Pike bass and muskies have been hittin on the north end speed trolling with larger risto raps, sunfish and clown colors have been working pretty good. Look for the hump in the NW corner. Fish have been 15'-20'. Haven't fished any walleyes. Good luck

Weeds are thick like usual water is really dirty compared to other years. Don't worry about the depth get a 18' triton in and out no problem. Go off the access toward the SW when launching the boat and you'll be fine. Find the suspended bait fish you'll find fish.

good luck bassin. Not the funnest when you got guys pounding muskies every 100yrds. Lakes gets a lot of pressure on ski's not to mention the local skiers etc. Weeds are from shore out bout to 20ft. I'd recommend try getting over to pike, quieter and you don't have a musky fisherman schoolin around you. Lake isn't big enough for half a dozen to a dozen guys muskie fishing. FYI, muskie lures fly far wink.gif

Eagle isn't worth the hassle, way to crowded!!! Go to Tonka in the mornings, not busy at all until about 10:00 am. Tonka is not as bad as people think--trophy fish all over.

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!

      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more. 
    • monstermoose78
      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.
