Went out for a few hours this afternoon chasing eyes. Not much luck for them but got into some beautiful crappies from 11.5-12.5" as well as some nice sized slimers. All fish caught were released. Water temps were still 60 degrees. Need some cool weather. Some nice fall colors too.

blasin e-mail me please. Its getting to that time of year where the crappies are going to school up over structure off of deeper waters. Still a bit warm but when we get into the lower 50's they will really start to put on the feedbags as will the eyes. Both crappies and eyes will use the same areas of the river this time of year. Most often the crappies will be either suspended or in the thick of the structure. The eyes will be right around there as well but usually not up in the water colomn in these areas.

Blasin were ya above or below boyscout?

We fishd all the way from Garfield to Boyscout. But the crappies were caught below Boyscout. I did mark a bunc of fish in 25 fow water that I pretty sure were eyes but they wouldn' go for us. Didn't get out in the harbor at all.

Load I was just curious about the location and if I was right about it.

Now about that Drew comment. Funny but you know me better than that.

As far as that spot I hit it a few times and it paid off big time to times in a row but the last few times has been real slow. Ya many many snags in there.

I have a new one for ya though. Not far at all from there.

This Sat and Sun or last? I wasnt out this weekend because of work and rain. Well lightning more than anything.

Last weekend I had Viking out and didnt do much at all down by the cheesey entry and then by the water tower.

      Let the cold begin! Though, now I am seeing snow in the forecast for Sat evening and Sunday. Boy, hopefully that misses.

      With the high wind's this week I really dont see much ice forming until at least the weekend.  Looking like I will be planning on hauling the ATV or sled up for the trip between Xmas and New Years again this year.

      I went and looked at a couple smaller 'early ice" lakes in the Cloquet area on sunday afternoon and there is nothing going on, and even tho the temps are gonna get colder, the wind this week will most likely not allow any of them to cap off til at least the weekend. Looking like its gonna be closer to Xmas before I'll be walking out for early ice this year (that's 6" for me LOL)

      I asked my sales guys that question a couple weeks back, when I picked up mine and he told me 4-6 hrs, I'm guessing that can change depending on the temps and stuff

      I am guessing he is using the vexilar edge or whatever the open water graph is called since he said he has fish alarm Personally I never use fish alarm or fish id on electronics   I am no expert either but here are some images that may help you
