Probably not today ..... but was yesterday, and will be tomorrow.

I'm only going today if I need to get the kids out of the house and run off some energy grin.gif

Cars and trucks driving around on the ice too.

I stayed a bit closer to home and hit O'Dowds. I couldn't believe how many perms are out there in front of the landing...a small city with a quite few vehicles driving around.

I got off the beaten path about as far away from everyone as I could and started deep. Found very little action, so I drilled a series of holes up the break and finally found a good bunch of fish at 15'. Lot's of perch with some eyes mixed in. Nothing real big, but a few of the perch were suprisingly plump.

Got a chance to try out my new AquaView Scout II. I was impressed with how clear it was!

went to Prior yesterday afternoon with my SIL's boyfriend. Caught 8-10" crappies for about 3 hours and then they shut down, were still on the Marcum but they shut down.

12" of ice and full size trucks all over the place. Only a matter of time before prior makes the news again with trucks falling in.........

dtro, I thought about going to Odowds but figured I didn't want to walk all the way out to the deep hole. Where were you drilling holes on the break and catching walleyes..... grin.gif

I wanna get out tonight.

I was tooling around on the snowmobile last night on Prior and stopped and talked to a few people.

Let me know if anyone wants company on Prior or O'dowd today.

Went out on local drainage pond looking for some slabs, all I got was about 30 5"-8" crappies. This was Christmas Eve Morning.

Besides that, been working on my basement every night for almost 2 weeks. Got to get it done.

Good luck to anyone who goes out. cool.gif

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
