I was on the chain today and got a few crappies and couple walleyes. The barometer was pretty high and rising though so was happy that I even got a few fish. There were fish on the vexlar most the time, just difficult making them bite. Look for deeper water.

Well I was on Horseshoe and it actually wasn't as clear this time as earlier in the year. I think you'd still be ok spearing in shallower water. There were people in spearhouses on the lake so they must be able to see.

jimbo any depth that has worked better than other depths. I also have had some luck out there in the past out from the point that sticks out from the access.

Well i Braved the cold this morning and it actually paid off, i went out to pearl and was set up about 6:45, set the house up for my sister and i went hole hopping, by 8:30 i had 7 crappies and i came back to ice house to warm up and she had 4 slabs laying in the pal, it slowed down about 9-9:30. It sure was nasty out today though, but it sure was worth it. \:\)

hill7410. Where on Pearl were you? I am not looking for exact GPS coordinates, just general area. Anywere near the "small town" set up straight out from the access? I ask because that lake is puzzling me and frustrating me.

I went out from the access and to the left, there was a little break in between a couple houses and then i went east about 30 yards to get away from the houses, i would think that it should pick up this weekend with the warm weather coming in, i am heading up to LOW with work so i will miss any pan fish action this weekend. Good Luck.

      I'm hoping the snow they are forecasting shows up. Because then it's on for sure.    Put new glass on the light weight .223 so I don't have to carry the heavy target weight gun around. Just not practical where I hunt to have a 300yard gun. A 150yard gun will do just fine.    When you cary a shotgun and a rifle on almost every stand a few extra pounds can add up in a hurry.    Good luck tonight moose

      Twin is pretty deep. One of the last to freeze over in most years.    I wasnt home yesterday evening to see if any more kids went through the ice.    I will did the spud out and see how thick  it is by shore tomorrow.

      We wait until the snowmobile club stakes the trail before going through the narrows.
