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.

      Sorry for the late response.  I was on the ice Friday-Monday fishing with our pro staff group.  We fished each morning for tuilibees and fished a few lakes and wow can you see a difference between lakes!  5 miles away and you go from average size of 19" to 13".  My buddy Scott who produced the video and the skinny guy is using I think a Wicked 13 Long stem reel which a spring broke in the bail this weekend.  I am using either a 13 FreeFall or a 13 Black Betty 6061 inline reel.  I like the in line reels better then the spinning reels and I wont be switching back for my ice fishing gear.  When its warmer out I like the FreeFall because I can drop the line with just one hand and not have to worry about hitting the button to drop it and then reel in some to get it to lock into place.  Scott I think is using a 32" St Croix rod, he switches between a light and a medium rod depending on his mood lol and I'm using a Yogi Custom Rod 32" Medium Light (Blue) and my other rod is a 32" medium rod (Black) I switch between them so its hard to keep them straight.  If your looking for a good rod he does 100% custom rods so you pick action tip eyelets colors string handles its pretty awesome and if your looking at the top end ones you get off the shelf you are paying about the same for a custom rod from him.     Fish were very hit and miss this weekend.  We caught a few in a few different holes but nothing great but yesterday we tried a new hole and instantly started getting them on top of the ice.  Will be trying that spot this weekend if I can get out on the ice.  I hate fishing solo just in case something happens out there and my fishing partner is heading Devils Lake for a week.  We had a ton of guys come by and see what we were doing that were "Seasoned Tuilibee Fisherman" that were using the 3" daredevil and told us what we were using wasn't going to be working get frustrated and leave because we were putting fish topside and they were only getting sniffers.  Our rig that has worked great for us is a 1/8 oz Kastmaster (Gold, Silver, or Rainbow Trout) with about 14-16" of line drop to a 4 or 5 mm tungstun jig (White, Pink, or Silver) loaded with wax worms.
