Someone said awhile ago in another post that trolling cranks during mid-day worked well for them on Stalker. I found a great mid-day crank bite on another lake and it's been fun. grin.gif May have to try Stalker, and show pics to the "professional skeptic" on this site. LOL

Who you callin' a "professional skeptic"? Just because I never catch anything on Stalker doesn't make me a skeptic. It makes me a less than skilled angler.

Besides, I can't row fast enough to pull cranks in the middle of the day and my 1974 Johnson is out of service.

You called yourself that, I just reminded you. grin.gif

All this talk about Stalker, I just had to give it a try for a couple hours. I've never been there in a boat.

carp killer, no gar. Water clarity is like 3'. I found a big algae bloom out there.

Ufatz, there are plenty of bass out there. Walleye too. grin.gif Think really, really small. Bass and walleye did not want anything "typical". Plastics, cranks, spinnerbaits, etc did not work at all for bass. Walleye shallow in the weeds and bass on the dropoffs.

That lake is not easy to troll at all. crazy.gif Breaklines are murder out there. No luck.

A bass club was out there and it sounded like it was slow.

I'd be glad to share my tactics if you like via email. wink.gif

I have often found them on a hot, calm day sunning them selves on the center flats, or in some of the near shore shoals. Check out the channel between the two lobes leading to the outlet.

Whaddaya mean dogfish don't taste as good as gar? Heck, to my mind Velocaraptor and Tricopterus taste the same as gar. Heck, all that prehistoric stuff tastes the same after a while though doesn't it. Gars and "dogfish" are probably millions of years old. They are actually pretty canny fish. But, like Rosie O'Donnel, they are pretty butt ugly and mean. grin.gif

You guys are making me sick, I just do not think I could ever try to eat either fish, yuck! Just an opinion. Try German lake for Gar.

      I used XR5AH (which are 5amp) DeWalt 20v max batteries last winter and never ran out of power.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.
