Hows the fishing going here and across the road? Sunnies and Crappies?

We were on Lake George two weeks ago. We fished north and east of the access by the small cluster of houses. We fished for about 3 hours and caught 1 11" walleye. I was marking a few fish on the Vexilar but couldn't get anything to bite. I assumed the bite must have been slow at the time because it was a nice Sunday morning and their was no one around. We had fished at Portage Lake on Saturday, another nice day, again we were marking fish but couldn't get them to bite. I didn't see anybody catch anything that day. We should have worked harder on Lake George, but it was such a nice day we took it easy and enjoyed the surroundings.

Went up there on Saturday started at about 7:45 and fished until 4:00! it was a struggle all day long you had to keep moving with the school of fish! The fish that we did catch were nice fish! We had 4 guys at ended up with I think 27 or 28 nice fish caught alot of small crappies to small to keep (I mean really small. But Overall it was fun and it wasnt to windy til later in the day and by that time we had some spots down there to fish!

Hope to head up to the cabin this weekend. Does anyone know the ice conditions on George or any other area lakes? Are they driving or walking?

My brother lives about 40 miles south of Lake George and has been fishing and driving on the ice by his place this week and says he has 2&1/2 feet yet and the ice is good.

I remember talking to you. Did well open water as usual except in August when it turned into a cesspool full of bullheads. Fished it a few weeks ago and nada. Only lookers on the vex. I spent time this winter on another lake up there and did pretty well for perch and crappies, over new years and spring break.

      It was a main lake break line that went from 18' and dropped into around 30'.  Just a sand transition into mud.   The fish we kept were loaded with small perch and crayfish.

      For winter jigging with Raps I cut off both front and rear hooks and upgrade one size on the middle treble hook. Cliff

      Another observation from the tournament and pre-fishing: On LOW I don't usually get very concerned about colors on cranks. However, Friday and Sat, the UV white with pink striped top shad rap was doing about 6 to 1 in the mornings. Afternoons, the gold foil rap was by far our best color. I'm a bit color blind, but pretty sure that UV rap has pink on the top. Wonder what fish actually see...........not much pink striped stuff swimming around the big lake.

      1/18 Day 4   Day for was exploration Day for the family.  Amanda, the kids, and my mother in law spent a good portion of the hanging out in town.  Shopping and visiting a few of the local attractions.   The father in law and myself decided to pull his boat and go explore a near by lake we have been thinking about.  This would give us s little change of pace.   Fishing actually exceeded our expectations, especially for starting in the early afternoon. Unsure where to start we motored around watching the graph if an area I thought might be good.  after a short while we noticed most marks showed themselves in 18-21 ft on steep breaks.  With the winds blowing we decided to try anchor on top and let the wind drift us over the and bobber fish.  This began to seem unproductive after about 45 mins with no bites, yet we were marking fish.  Out of bordem I decided to raise up 5 ft and cast as far as i could to the top of the break (15ft).  The first 3 casts produced 3 walleyes 15"-18". The bobber never settled before they went down!  The walleyes them slowed but the perch bit really picked up.  Most perch where 9" but a few went as big as 11".   After that spot slowed we hit a few similar spots until we settled on a spot bit deeper but with lots of marks.  This spot would give us pretty non stop action till dark.  With different species rotating through. By the end of the day we caught: 12 walleyes ranging from 11"-21". 5 Pike 20"-30" and one really big one that bit a 10" perch as it was being reeled in by the FIL. Countless Perch, not many under 9"or over 10". And a few dozen bluegills 7.5"-10".   Service here is giving me fits with photos. Hope to post some when i get home this weekend

      Perchy - Insured?  If so, the adjuster will have some recommendations, off the record, on places for repair.

      For all you jigging rap fans out there are you generally jigging those vertically or on the move.   I seen some discussion earlier on the front hook and one thing that I have heard about that hook is a lot of people do take it off in order to prevent snags. I have donated quite a few jigging raps in the past to rocks on the big V I have donated quite a few drinking wraps in the past to rocks on the big v

      Help! I need to get estimates to have the transom repaired/replaced on my 2002 Lund due to an accident and have no idea where to go? I live in Owatonna. Thanks in advance!

      Every store is different as to what they have in stock so if your looking for a specific thing in your size you might have to hit a couple. I went to the Duluth store for my bibs.   Yes a lot of the stuff is still too expensive for going out of business sale prices.
