Nice day!!!

10 posts in this topic

headed out to frances this morning. hit the lake around 9 and fished from 9-1 and managed 8 nice crappies and sorted a few others. I fished from 24-33 feet of water. Next I hit madison and fish 22-27ft from 2-5 and ended up with the other two nice crappies and threw a few more back and a couple perch. Madison was ok but there are too many idiots out on the lake running there 4 wheelers and augers every 2 minutes by you. In the end it was a beautiful day on the ice especially knowing what is coming tomorrow.

Yea it was beautiful out today, fished duck from 3-6 and caught all the 5-6 inch sunfish you wanted. Does anyone have any suggestion on where i could go to catch some decent size sunfish?

Thanks

Great Report, it seems like those depths have been the key lately, it almost makes me wonder when they will start moving shallow, we shouldn't be too far away.

Hmm, I knew I shouldn't be using the stars to guide my year anymore, I was on schools of those slabs as well but now all that's there are the dinks, 8-10 inchers, might have to go a little shallower I guess. Thanks for the tip.

Ryan,

Sorry I didn't catch up with you this past weekend. I was pulled in another direction by an area 'eye bite. If I don't go to Round Lake this weekend, you'll definitely see me down there.

Well you didn't miss much that's for sure, I actually had a slow weekend in comparison to what was going,ok well I got sidetracked a bit here and there and wasn't able to hit the prime times,ran into a few friends on the way to the lake chasing coyote, so I jumped in to see what that was all about,man can them things move, we tracked the one over 9 miles across country, managed some crappies but the size went from good to nothing, 8-10 inchers, I couldn't even put my nephew on some perch during the day, which is unusual for that lake, they were seining so we ended up watching that for awhile, That's fishing. Time to take a few days off from the lake, let the weather settle in and get refocused.

If there's enough interest, we can certainly try to put something together. But, my intentions for the next Get-Together were for a "spring clean-up" just before the 'eye opener.

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
