I fished Okabena a hand full of times and got a few eyes along with some nice perch.

I had my hard house out a couple weeks ago and caught some real nice eyes. The one in my avatar is from Okabena, also caught another that size as well as an 8lber. Last year opener was great on Okabena!

Fished it in December. Got some perch and and a couple crappies. Also some 8 inch walleyes. The perch were on the small side. 7 to 9 inches. Same for the crappies. Seemed like the perch bite was in the morning. In the afternoon never got a perch when I was out there.

My Dad did manage to get a few nice wallyes in december. 17 to 20 inches were the size he got. Ussually only got one or two of the nicer walleyes a day. One day he would get them and the next it was all little walleyes.

Have been catching a few smaller crappies most are around 8" and same goes for the perch. Nothing amazing and some bait sized walleyes every once in a while. But who know what will come in March.

      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.
