Hey Dick I was wondering how long it would take before you got bored and had to head north again. Is Doc your partner on the open water as well? Good luck. Say hi to Kelly and Jonny.

Orange and brown Watsit jig or orange Fuzz-E grubs, scoop of minnows and away you go, it really is that simple.

Jonny fished the Watzit last fall on our lake for crappies. Very satisfied with the results. They definitley hit 'em with gusto. Have a great summer. Had fish fry last night and the guys are ready for another hard water trip......

Jonny, With all the talk of low water,will there be problems launching boats and getting out on the lake?? Any places a guy should not try to launch? I have a glass 20 ft. boat Thanks in advance for your help!

I had my 620 out of Tamarac last Thursday and it is low. Big sandbar well past the last green can. You will polish up your skeg if you come in hot. Trim up and go slow to the break and you should be safe.

It is going to be nip and tuck but most boats should be able to get out. Worst case is one will have to trim up and push pole for a few feet over a bar. I have been out from Mort's and the mouth of the river with the Crestliner and no problems. Westwinds Resort had the canal cleaned out so that is also in good shape.

      Royce, how’s the sensitivity Is the tip soft like a tickle stick and how’s quality seem? About same price as a tickle stick I see may have to try one for next season. If It passes with flying colors do you it must be good! Tough day for me not much happening went from about 8-29 FOW and just nothing. Found perch in about 19 but even they seemed finicky and would only hit the dead stick. A bit windy on the lake today to!

      Yes that would be the one. A friend of mine sent it to me. The guy who got it is a friend of his nephew.

      So that explains the traffic and also the one where they were shooting video of what appeared to be about a drill type auger. Did drive by an ice team truck on the way out also.

      The warmer weather has brought alot of people out to the area. We are waiting for the later bite. Most are setup in shallowet water. Haven't marked fish yet but tendto see them at sunset.    Be careful with all the holes being drilled! I found one that was covered back in, got my shin, luckily not my ankle.

      Started out in 26 feet this morning and had 5 dandy crappies in 15 minutes then it was over. moved a mile and found a few dandy gills in 16 feet. And a couple bass.  Day 2 with the new rods and liking them more.

      I would fish them trees
    • HunterFisher11
      So I should set my house in really shallow in on those trees?? Or stay out a little bit on the drop? Going to do a over night if that makes a difference?
    • monstermoose78
      Find them trees if they are in the water. I fished a lake like that and it was fishing the crappies in the trees. I had to use heavier line to horse them out quick.

      Pulled my house a couple of days ago, but there are still a few fish biting at some spots. Very slow for me! Good roads out there yet as we plowed them after the last snow. Cliff

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??
