Spec is a sleeper lake because Green lake takes the spot light. Spec has so much structure compare most lakes around. It is good bass lake and if you can figure out the walleyes you can do well. I know the lakes tons of tiny gills and some ok crappies. Bass fishing is pretty good on Spec., but Green has been hot for nice gills and crappies as of late in the 6-10 foot range. Please just remember to release some of the bigger gills because it takes a while to grow them. As for the crappies you can get some nice ones in the 10-12 inch range. Walleyes have been a little harder to come by, but one of my good friends has been pulling spinners and leeches can putting walleyes in the boat. I know he like working the west and south side of the lake.

I have lots of good memories of swimming at Mankies resort when I was a kid.

Look for the crappies to be surface feeding off the points or weed edges. Walleyes are using the weed lines and breaklines. When fishing for walleyes be ready to lose some gear to pike. Slow trolling live bait rigs is what been turning some walleyes in green. I have not heard anything from spec. except the bass are on fire.

Thanks I appreciate the info. I can't wait to get out on the water again. I haven't been all year because of Grad School.

      Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.

      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!

      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick

      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
