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..

      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
