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.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off

      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
