Well i went to Elysian last night got my but kicked, completely skunked didnt even mark a fish. Was too tired to go to Tetonka so i stopped at Clear lake on my way home and im glad i did, i set up in 11 fow and ended up getting 8 real nice sunnies and all the small ones i could stand to catch. Not bad for only bout an hour and a half on Clear, next time im gonna just hit Tetonka all night to see what happens.

Best ice we have had in a long time,20 to 26". There are no heaves by willow point or Best Point, or any where for that part.

I went out again last night all night. I took the portable and went hunting for 3 hours, got a few here and there. I was augering holes in one place when somebodies lake light came on. He yelled out the door" don't you ever sleep" and the light went off. Some people have no sense of humor. whistle.gif

Heck, I would have said "Don't you?" to him since he's apparently wide awake too! \:D

That's good to hear about the ice. One of these days when I can get a free weekend I'll have to hit it.

Thanks for the info!

Key to your house Ken? That's dangerous! Hide the hopps! \:D

I suspect I'll be on the lake in a couple weeks from now. Busy 'till then. Come spring & summer I'll be there a "few" times too. ;\)

Yeah, but the only thing is, it's the younger one that got wet this time. Like T.O. said, it must run in the family. grin.gif

You'll have company by this afternoon.

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
