So my roommate and I went out fishing on roberts lake last evening, and found some sunfish in the shallows on the NE corner of the lake. As we were fishing a weed-cutting boat started cutting weeds and made a pass less than 50 feet away from the boat. Needless to say the huge amount of churning water terminated our fishing spot mad. As we were motoring out of the spot the guy running the boat told us to get out of his way. At this point, slightly peeved, I explained to him that we were leaving because he scared all the fish away and we were moving to a new spot. After shutting off his machine, and swearing at us profusely for being in HIS way, I will not be giving anyone my reccomendations on using J & B weed cutting

I feel your pain, it seems that the lake is setup for water skiing and tubing now. Not only do they cut the weeds they sprayed it three times already with chemicals that say don't eat the fish for seven days. Thank god there are two resorts that only care about how the weeds are in the lake.

What time? I was out there with my daughter lastnight, didnt notice them where I was fishing. I was in an area the weeds were out 80 yards from shore, north end. Once the water warms up on Roberds, it is always overtaken by recreational boating.

Were you the boat that watched me fight the one for awhile and end up losing it at the boat? I don't even want mention what it was...I blame it on tripping over my daughters toys scattered all over my boats floor. Lol

Big walleye that got off at the surface 10 ft away from the boat where I couldn't reach it. It was well over 20 inches, my guess would be 26 or 27. My 3 year old would have been using the camera for the first time. haha.

You guys caught a lot of white bass out there? I did catch one. First for many years.

I'm not personally familiar with the weeds in the lake. Is it Milfoil? I've seen weedcutters out on a few lakes with pondweed infestation but those weeds are going out on their own as we speak. Or was it property owners clearing native vegitation? Hope not. Just curious...

Well the sad thing is that it in cutting the curly leaf they are also cutting the native vegetation during the bluegills spawn. I saw them cutting on French last night which is just plain stupid as the milfoil on that lake is very patchy. Guess the lake shore owner's really want to see it spread faster than it is. crazy

      2/18/18     Got out on an area lake an hour before sunrise Saturday. Got a bunch of crappies until they slowed about 9 am. Most between 9.5 and 11 inches. Sunfish started biting about sunrise and bit all morning. Half of them were 8 to 8.5 inches. Most of the rest were 7 to 7.5 inches. Kept two meals of fish--released the rest. 1/32 ounce VMC Tungsten Tubbies tipped with a single wax worm or two red Eurolarvae fished just above some weeds in thirteen feet of water caught fish after fish. Lots of good ice on area lakes. Even though walleyes and pike close in just over a week and wheel houses can't stay out unattended soon, still a lot of good ice fishing for panfish to come. Will have plenty of ice for a while, so get out and enjoy the peace and quiet and fast crappie and sunfish action that March will bring. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Had a chance to rub shoulders and fish with some of the ice team guys today. Great bunch of guys we had some good laughs and of course discussed plenty about fishing. Even shared a few hotspots. The hands on they give the people that sign up for this event is absolutely amazeing! From hands on to tips on everything to do to make your day on the ice way more productive. From what I witnessed it would be well worth the investment to sign up for one of there events , if you are new to fishing or heck even a seasoned angler.  Fished with one guy from Nebraska said he has done 5 of these events and has enjoyed everyone of them.  Fun day for sure

      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!
    • The Chemist
      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. 
    • monstermoose78
      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.
