I would try the Starbuck end. Get on the inside of the submerged weedline in 8-10 of water. Good luck, it sounds like the temperature will moderate for the weekend.

I was in 19ft over the weekend and could see our shiners swimming on the bottom. I think it depends on where you set up. I've heard the Glenwood side was real murky earlier in the season, not sure anymore.

Did you watch the fish bite your shiners then? that would be a site to see?

Clarity shouldn't be an issue between Glenwood and Starbuck, I could see down 18 feet last weekend in that area.

hhguide, unfortunately we didn't have much of a day bite - so no seeing the fish take our bait. They only came through after dark.

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
