I was out at Prescott and around 8 AM I lost 2 fish and had several followers. In the afternoon I had 1 fish follow up about 3 feet, no other bites or fish marked. I will be back out there on Sunday morning.

Say guys how many vehicles have been down there lately? Are anglers consistantly hitting that area, or has it been quite?

Ok I was down in the Prescott area on Monday and I marked some fish but didn't catch anything but had a few bites. My son said he saw a walleye swim through his hole when testing his jiggin action. This seemed bizarre to me since it was just under the ice? Do walleyes do that or did he see some other type of fish.

What I'm wondering is if the Prescott area is mainly a walleye spot or is there crappies in the area as well.

Another question I have is most of my ice fishing is for panfish and I try to keep moving around to find them. I'm new to the river and ice fishing for walleyes and I was wondering if I should keep moving around or stay in one area? If to stay how long should I wait it out before considering moving?

I don't have a wheeler or snowmobile so I was wondering how far up the river does it make sense going up driving a full size truck to just get away from the community holes? Or am I better off walking?

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      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?
