Called a friend who has been fishing there and catching crappies. He said to concentrate on the lower suspended fish. He claims the upper suspended would not bite

Try down west of Best Point, north of the bar, in 22 to 28 ft. If you keep jiging the one that want to bite will raise off the bottom, keep pulling away from them. Sometimes you will have to sort though them, then other times they will be all nice fish. Good luck

Thanks for the info. Thats approx where we actually went. A friend caught a 16-17" striper. Could see them on the locator but didn't have any takers.

If you know what my house looks like, stop in. Starting thursday night to the 24, moving quick and offen, run and gun. I might have to get a new auger before it done.

Not sure what your fish house looks like, but if you still have the same truck as when you, TO and myself did some perch fishing last year, I might recognize ya. ;\)

Same truck, a little whiter with all the road salt. Lets just say I think this weekend is going to be sweet. So much to do, so little time. I may have to go to work Monday to rest

So I should be keeping my eye out for a John Deer on the ice or something? \:\)

Just one last question for ya Ken. Can't remember if I asked this before or not, but how's the ice across the whole lake from west to east? Any trouble spots/areas I should be aware of (besides right up on Willow)? Dangerous over by the river inlet?

Thanks!

Well, I didn't see Ken or anyone I knew out on the lake Friday, but trying to find the 'eyes was a bust. One small slimer and one jumbo, but that was it. Focused hard on inside turns, the tips of points; steep drops, deep basin and shallow water flats, but nada.

Guess I'll have to wait for the opener now. From what I've heard, I maybe should have tried a different lake too.

I think it was just slow - at least where I was. Caught nice fish on Monday when it was cold and windy. Go back to the same spot - tons of fish on the camera on Sat - nothing wanted to bite.

There's another lake where somce nice 'eyes have been caught, espcially at night. But I stuck to my original plan and hit Tetonka. Kind of suprised there weren't that many houses out there. Lots of un-tapped water on Tetonka I'm sure.

And oh by the way....I'd highly doubt that any FM'ers here would do this, so don't think this is directed at any one of you. But to the people that leave garbage on the lake, please refrain from doing so and clean up after yourselves. I picked up countless cans, plastic bottles, cracker boxes, cookie bags, cigarette buts and the like. Just simply bring an empty plastic bag from Walmart or something and put the garbage in there when you're done with it. No need to stomp it into the snow or ice as was the case with much of the garbage I found.

Thanks.

It was fun. Nothing big, 15" to 18" more during the day, few at night. Just a few dinks. All in all I was smiling, but that might have been from the Captain. Still can't understand why people have to drive between houses that are 30' apart with pickup parted between them and nobody on the outsides of them. mad.gif

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      I will be out on Blue on Saturday morning. ... see you out there

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.
