Senko, from my understanding the dam is always letting some water through. It holds back water when there is excess rain for future power generation. The dam buffers the flow of the lower river to some extent.

Fishing is sweet. I caught a bunch of crappie, some nice white bass, a few smallies and rock bass, a couple sauger and sheepshead and that one walleye that got away boat side. Morning started slow, was real busy after lunch.

Here the biggest of todays croixpie.

Nice slab Blueroof. I was out saturday and the crappies were still biting. I didn't get any that big, but a few 12 and 13's.

I would like to know what you used to catch the Amber Ale. I think there would be a lot more fisherman out there trying if you let us know. By the way, was there a fish in the picture?

Worms. If you can believe that! Earlier in the day I got a white bass (on a minnow) that had to have been well over 3lbs, didn't realize what a trophy that was. I would have never known if it wasn't for someone posting about the 27" bass out of Tonka. Everyone should take some time to look over the state record fish page, quality reading.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
