I was out yesterday and the size hasn't changed too much, did manage 8 fish over 10 inches. There were still a lot of small ones. Also picked up a walleye as a kicker. Just too windy to fish effectivly. Headed out again tomorrow.

Sweet, Ya i know it is really fun to catch those small ones one after another, last year i went up twice and me and a buddy caught them non stop. So i might have to make room for a trip later in the season. I just cant wait till the day all those little peuks grow up! laugh.gif

One final for me left too, Tuesday afternoon. I was fishing out of Isle bay in about 20 feet of water. Minnows under a bobber for the jumbos, all the little ones were caught jigging. Nothing really special. Just try all different depths till you find one that works and move if you are not catching them.

Cubbies,

When are you going to have time off over break or have a little bit to get out and fish. You sound like the kind of guy I might like to fish with. You may be jsut as crazy about ice fishing as I am. I really enjoy fishing Bald Eagle and am always looking for others to fish it with. So if you are interested in getting out and chasing some fish some night I would be all for it. I might even share some of my hot spots on other lakes in the area wink.gif. Well if you want to go send me an e-mail, navr0012 at d dot umn dot edu. Once again good luck tomorrow if you get out. Good luck on your final.

keep fishin'

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret

      Thanks, I'm excited about it too. I've fished those lakes and know for a fact that the existing maps are at best incomplete, and occasionally plain wrong. So I'm really looking forward to seeing what the data shows.

      Not sure about KAXE , but WEVE from Virginia comes in. They are so bad, they are almost good! Their tag line was "Not too hard, and not too soft" to which I add "and not too good" If you want to hear schmaltzy drek from the 80's then tune in.

      Very cool project.  I just got back from up there, and I'll be up again on another solo the first week of May.  I'll check back if I decide to enter near Ely.

      Eyeguy - what size weight are you using at the Miss?  Are you using a bullet weight and a worm hook to hold your crawler?   Cret
