as most people get. not a lot of crappies out there and even less of any size. panfish in general seem to be small out there. the only thing i do out there is tip up for pike if i dont have much time since it is close.

Bruiser,

Keep us posted on how you do - good or bad. I've see considerably more people on that lake this year than in years past. I'm hoping to get out there on Sunday.

I haven't been out there for a few years, but I always caught them in and around the deep hole. 32 to 38 feet. Typically it's an evening bite.

Good Luck

Hey Bruiser sounds like we need to find you a job, you have way to much time on your hands!!you would think with that new son of yours you would be way to busy to be scouting lakes. But keep looking, I will come down in FEB. for a few days and fish with you. Will bring both of my Vex'S tongue.gif

We walked out on the west end of the lake - towards the middle. We were just past the little point on the northwest side of the lake in 28 feet of water. No gills were bigger than 7 inches, but it was pretty much non stop.

bruiser if you dont mind a short drive from the grove, head out to bald eagle or white bear for some crappies. bring minnows and fish them whole on plain hooks or use the heads on smaller jigging spoons.

I have fished Powers many times. Some luck with crappies in the deep hole on the lake. They are always suspended. Bring your vex. Also caught some nice size pike closer to 19 in 12-16 feet of water. I bring the kids there in the winter to just catch a bunch of fish. Non-stop action with little perch and a good size pike thrown in every now and then. Keeps them busy and wanting to come back.

        Wow that looks great! What type of wood did you use if you dont mind me asking?

      Was up at Long Point with 5 guys last Thursday PM through Sunday AM. Thursday evening after the wind went down a bit the fishing was great. Ended up getting our limit for the 6 of us that evening. Ate fish that night. Friday and Saturday were slower but still pretty good. A LOT of little ones so we had to sort through them to get some keeper fish. Ended up getting our limits to take home by Saturday afternoon and then the rain started. Very few slot fish, which was a bit of a surprise. Only 4 over 19.5", with 2 at 20, one 22 and the biggest being 25. Jig and a frozen shiner/fathead worked well. No real preference between the two minnows. Jig color didn't seem to matter that much but we had best luck on gold, pink, chartreuse and glow white. Depths we fished were 21-26 feet, pretty much all those depths worked fine. Really fun trip and I look forward to the next one.

      Here's a couple pictures of one of the 14' boats I redid, a 25hp will be plenty of motor for a 12' boat.  The14' bat in the pictures with the additional weight from the wood would go 26mph with just me in the boat.  As you can se  left the compartment open for the gas tank, so I could monitor the level and so I could breathe better. Send me a message if you have questions.  It's really a fun project to work on these old boats.

      Do you have any pics of the process or finished product by any chance?
    • HugeHogChaser
      wow, this is exactly what I was looking for. Unfortunately idk what the hell i'm doing, as I have no carpentry skills LOL, but i have a buddy that builds houses, so I am sure he would have the necessary skills and tools to assist me. It cant be too hard, right!? haha. Anyways, I appreciate the information, this is GREAT. Ill be sure to touch base with you if I have any questions. Thanks again!! I have a 25 hp motor right now...really old, a chrysler 25 HP from like...the 70s or 80s. You thank that'll be enough power with the added weight?

          You can keep one Walleye 13.8- 17.7 a day. With the conservation licence you can take 2 fish out with only one over 27.6. and with a sportsman licences you can take out 4 with only one over 27.6.

      Thanks All.   No big plans this weekend and and the weather has been putting a damper on outdoor projects and chores.    Still I might sneak out for a few hours this weekend.

      In and around narrows is where most people were fishing.  Lots of fish under 14 though.
