I was out there labor day. The water temp was 68 on the windy side. We drifted through 9-12 ft out water on the edge of weeds and picked up 10 crappies, and one little walleye. nothing exciting, but the girl from cali whom never had been fishing before got to catch some fish.

It should turn over here pretty soon, and it should turn on. Be careful, I've never seen the water this low before.

Went out of Tim's Highbanks on the 22nd. He told us it had been slow for both Walleyes and Crappeyes. It was.

Fishing for Panfish, caught Bass and Northern...and Perch. blush.gif

Fishing for Northern, caught Bass and a Walleye...and Perch. blush.gif

Fishing for Crappies in the evening, caught a few 6 inchers and one 10 incher...and a Northern...and a Perch. blush.gif

So at least the Northern and Bass were hungry...and Perch. blush.gif

Didn't see anyone really getting into much.

Lots and lots of Rocks sticking up and out, and lots of ups and downs in depth.

Lots of lower units lost the past couple weeks, per Tim.

A hard lake to navigate and fish for firstimers...treacherous at night!!

With all the shallow areas and Hazards, will be thinking hard about whether to return...

Colors changing a little, seem to be lagging a bit.

Moby Fish Lake is a good fishing lake. Dont let a low water year turn ya off. Crappies are just starting to get going now.

Well, I may try it again during frozen water, but I understand there are only limited roads on ice...

Fish lake will have roads to within walking distance of several good fishing areas. The west side of the lake usually doesnt have rodas but some years with good early ice guys will drive over that way. Stay away from the D A M and the bridge!

      I found fish on Friday like the old days it was a lot of fun but I decided not to deal with the slush and the sled on Sat.  I heard that may of been a good decision because I heard people burning out their sleds in the slush, running them wide open just to barely move.     Nothing like sledding in a rain storm, I guess to find them it has to be painful.

      HI ... I was out on a Lake Saturday Morning and two guys I noticed were catching nice Crappies hole hopping with electronics of coarse.  Finally after a bit from a semi far distance (far enough to not be able to see color but know it was the vertical spoon ones) I asked what they were using as they were packing up.  "Forage minnows no bait" one said.   So my question/s is?   Has any one fished Crappies with these?  I am a pug bug plastics guy here for Pan fish.  What particular colors has anyone had success with?   I am assuming the smaller spoon but I see they come with treble hook and or single hook?   Bob

      Thank you for the zip code, for the last 3 years I lose the tailgator reception at night around 8 I never know what zip code to try I sure hope it works.  All day everything is fine, evening comes I lose signal.

      I used the thumbnail method with all but the heavier split rigs.  If you're doing a bunch it gets sore.  I then use a small eye glass screw driver.  Once I get it started to remove the old one I slip the new one in behind it.  One falls off and the other on.   Careful, those small trebles are hard to hang onto and sticky sharp.

      really neat to see the lake from the aerial view!  Cool to see all the roads and the paths out there.  Kinda fun to look at the road systems and name what resort they are from...
