I am heading down to the river tonight and I have never fished it this time of year so I am not sure where to start. I imagin that the same tricks I was using early in the season by presscott have changed and I will need to chase them down. We are heading out after work and hope to find some smallies and an eye or two if they will bite. I am thinging of tossing some buzz baits and shadraps. Firetiger worked earlier should it still? Also not sure about switching to lindy's and spinners after plain gumball jig worded so well earlier.

Had good success with dive-to's in baby bass color.

For smallies it's hard to beat a tube jig, darker colors seem to work the best...have a rod rigged up with a topwater of some sort as well, like a chug bug or pop-r...towards evening get check out some sand flats for smallies and whities bustin minnows on the surface.

For eyes crawler or leech on lindy or a crawler spinner should do the trick. Jig bite should pick up a bit later..

      Took a drive around the lake today. The only open water I saw was in the middle out from Holiday Resort. Rest of the lake was covered with ice. When I got home I went out to check the ice thickness in front of my place. Went out about 5 feet from shore and chopped a hole with the spud bar. Measured 2 inches of ice with my measuring stick. Went out to about 15 feet from shore, chopped another hole and measured just a hair under 2 inches. Went out another 5 feet and brushed away the snow with my boot as I had done with the other holes. Hit the ice with the spud bar and all I could hear was cracking going off in every direction. Retreated to the shore. Going to give it a couple of days and check again. Hope we don't get that snow for Saturday night and Sunday.

      Yeah I thought if that. Just looking for other opinions.

      Check craigslist see if there are any boats like yours on there. If so how much are they asking.
