Fished for eyes from 6:00 to 8:30 this morning in 20 fow. Lots of lookers, but not one taker. Moved out to 38 fow and marked fish but they weren't biting good at all and the ones I did catch were the smallest crappies I have ever caught on the river. Moved to 28 fow to try something different. Caught two small mouth, one 16 inches, the other 17, and an 11 inch perch that was shaped like a football. Fished until 2. Fun catchin the bass but a bad day for walleye and crappies. Anyone else have any luck?

UWLeagle-- Fished the high lines from 7:00 til noon, one 9.5" crappie. Plenty of lookers. The bite seems to have cooled down in the last 2 weeks.

Hopefully it picks up again soon. If this keeps up at this pace I might have to try a new lake.

Hey Jake you going to be out Friday morning? I am planning on being out there and set up by 6am. Blue is coming out to join me later in the day. I am wondering where you ran into those drifts that you got stuck in. I haven't been on the river in about three weeks and don't remember any drifts. Just don't want any problems as I am heading across from MN side in the dark. How did you do out there today? See you on Friday.

I am thinkin I should be able to make it out there early Friday morning. I was out there today and the drifts werent bad at all. The one I got stuck in was the only bad one I could see. Just make sure you are in someones tracks and dont try to plow through new ones cuz thats what got me stuck. Did terrible today. Read my new post. Hopefully the fishing will pick up with the nicer weather coming. Shoot me an email with your phone number and I'll give ya a call tomorrow night to make plans if you want. jheuston@hotmail.com

Course we all know fishermen are liars, "Nope, I have never caught a thing on the river. Far as I'm concerned I ciould fish out of my bathtub at home and catch more fish." Yep, and the beat goes on.............:)

Hey tunrevir, I usually do better in the toilet than the tub, it has more structure \:\)

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
