bayport crappies have been hit and miss. did well on them a week ago (xmas day)... this past weekend not many crappies.. although they appeared (on vex) to be down there... did get a few walleyes, saugers, and silvers. my buddy was out yesterday morning.. got a half dozen nice crappies. from what i take... you just have to be there at the right time... so not hot... but not bad either.

someone was smoking newport cigerettes on my spot.

just go off the phone with my ol'man... he was down there this morning... he said it was terrible... same thing... he said he could see them down there... not biting though... perhaps this little cold front and rise in pressure turn them off again. man... they can be finacky. sorrow for the bunk report... i still might try it this afternoon if i can sneak out of work early.

We were out Sunday. Fished the WI side, 40' of water. One 14.5" walleye. Pushed it down the hole only to see it later under the ice, dead. Enough to make a guy cry. I saw a few other dead shorties under the ice too and a few crappies. Not many fish being caught while I was there. Not much on the point, either.

Went down by North Hudson today from 1pm to 6:30 pm.Darn slow.Only caught one decent sauger and a walleye the size of a cigar.I was in 34' of water until about 4 pm and then I moved in to some holes I drilled in 20' earlier.Saw some fish but they weren't taking much.Good Luck Fishing!!!

Hey, Sinker.... Where do you go on in N Hudson? Do you fish in the hole in front the little lake there? I usually fish out of Bayport but would like to try some other spots!

Sturgeon46, I get on at the landing you see all the vehicles by.South-east of the Bayport access.I usually go north about 1/3 of the way to the group of shacks you see on the WI. side.It drops off quickly from shore and it's basically 34' to 38' of water.I don't bring home buckets full but I usually can get a few crappies and saugers.Walleyes are running small.How are you doing for walleyes over there?Do you fish off of that point by the beach?Keep in touch.Good Luck Fishing!!!

Thanks, sinker. That's where I fish too - both sides. I was thinking you might fish closer to Hudson. I've been curious what fishing might be like in the quiet areas on the east side.

Sturgeon46,the farthest I've fished to the south on ice is where you can see a small group of shacks down by the black railroad bridge.They'll look like dots from the Bayport area.From there north to the landing where everyone gets on I've caught some big crappies.My daughter caught the biggest one I've seen down there,almost 15",a few years ago.Are you or anyone else doing anything on walleyes?Good Luck Fishing!!!

I'ts been slow for me on the walleyes. I only get out on weekends when traffic is highest and with no snow, I'm convinced the fish are spooked by the time I get at them. I fish with my 16 yr old son and I can't get him out of the sack to fish the early AM so we go in the afternoon after everyone has already stomped and punched holes all over. I'm going to move away from the crowd next time and see what I find. I'll let you know.

      We only fished for 5 hours (only 2 hours were worthwhile 29 ft).

      OK so day before father's day we had terrible weather. 1st spot was in 14 ft of current n we caught 4 eyes. Did c a sturgeon role but waste of time other than that. Next spot 6 eyes still a wasted time cause of the weather but the old man did caught a 20 in so it wasn't all that bad. But once the weather allowed we catch  26 eyes n in 29 ft of water n one was 24 in.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan
