I was wondering if someone could give me any info on winterkill? I have been fishing the lake by my house most of the winter, gills were pretty small but lots of them through early ice until mid january. Then i started picking up some nice 7-10"s up until about week and half ago, now i cant hardly raise a bite at all. Apparently the dnr did some oxygen samples and its really low, they are thinking about opening it to unlimited fishing just so all fish dont die due to freeze out. I was wondering if anyone might have ideas from experiance, where i might find some fish in this lake? Is there more oxygen in deeper water, or shallow water where the weeds are? Seems that where ever i drill a hole there are fish on the vex from 3-6FOW but cant get any takers. Im kinda lost. Thanks for any input!!

      Jay! You still in Alabama? I'll be headed back to Texas soon - but NOT until ramps freeze over up here. Wasn't going to go fishing today but sun came out and wind died so I headed to lake. Arrived at noon, wind started blowing and scattered snow/rain. Never fails.  But I had good luck with seven big pike, 3 walleyes and 11 bass. Fished alone. Tried to talk Mike into trolling the shoreline for pike on Wednesday but he didn't want to do that so that is what I did in my boat today. They were where I had caught some in late Fall a few years back. All around 30"-36". All stuffed full of bait which I guess are ciscos since they move shallow this time of year to spawn. Hopefully get some more big pike tomorrow. Trailer lights went out so have to fix those first. Best bait 6" Lunker City Swim Fish on heavy jig head. Bass & walleyes on flukes with fairly heavy head because of wind. Forgot camera so no pictures today.

      Know of a breeder that has a 3 yr old Vizsla that is giving him away. His grandfather was a champion but this one just didn't turn out to much of a hunter. He'll only listen to the boss and no one else. He's not gun shy but he is real sensitive apparently, whatever that means. He's neutered and up to date with his shots. Sounds like more of a family dog then a hunter.
