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.

We'll get 'em to turn their noses eventually.

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.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
