Washington out from Westwood in the Mud bay area would be a very good bet.You will see all the other people fishing and one should be able to find some crappies and sunfish. small pannie jig with a plastic or waxie should be the ticket. I have found that Shrimpo's or Ratso's with plastic work great. At times I will tip it with a wiggler also.

Reel fishing & Tackle on your way to Washington in Madison lake carries these jigs if you don't have them.

Thank you guys and I plan on getting some more tackle from reel fishing and tackle the day of the otter get together.

I like buying from a tackle shop alot more then a big name sports store. It is more personel and who else will take the time to let you know whats working and where wink.gif

One can always but from the Outdoor pro Store online also. Glitter glows,Ants and Lil Buggers all work well for those pannies as far as the JB Lures go or Varmits for the eyes.

For eyes, dont forget about some Angel eyes.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.

      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
