I've already had a couple of 200 plus fish days, seen

more big fish caught already that in most fall seasons

and there are 3 or 4 real good weekends left to fish on

open water.

Once in a while the wind blows so hard you cant fish the

lake, The water gets stirred up and that slows things

down for a day or two, the current is moving the river

pretty fast the last week or so and that makes it tough

to fish the easy spots on the river. Fishing jumping in

the boat isnt a lock every day, but fish populations are

through the roof on LOW right now and the numbers of biggees

is way up too.

Fishing is excellent! You get your family bundled up and

anchor in 14 to 19 feet of water in the Morris Point Gap

with 3/8ths or 1/4 ounce jigs and live or frozen shiners

and it'll be your best odds of the year for out of this

world, one right after another Walleye fishing. Be Patient

it sometimes takes a while for bites to start.

The weather is the gamble...good luck

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
