This time of year, before it really cools down, you can find Eyes and Crappies over the deep water flats- Nelson's, The large 30' expanse betwen the public launch and Coney Island, etc. Crappies will be suspended, look at your flasher, eyes hugging buttom.

Everyone and their mother will be on the humps/classic structures, maybe pegging a fish or two a night.

But with some time covering a lot of the deeper sand/gravel, you'll be able to mark fish in these less traveled areas, and when you do they can be stacked closely together-- go after them with a vertical approach. On top of that, these fish are a heckuva lot less conditioned than the few eyes at kegs or cemetary that have seen a million lures/jigs this summer. Good luck.

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
