We had one brave soul venture out yesterday in the subzero temperatures (double digits below zero) in search of crappies. He went out for a few hours in the late morning and early afternoon, venturing out of the southshore approximately 1.5 miles to 13/14' depths. Unfortunately for him the bite was very slow but said he kept very active tyring to keep the holes unthawed (even had two heaters running) and the minnow bucket unthawed. The temps are what kept him from fishing out there into the late afternoon and the early evening like he wanted (which is when the bite has been better), but figured he'd wait until next trip to do the late afternoon/evening fishing. He did check with the access owner before heading out and was given the ok to drive his vehicle out.

The add on of "lounge girl" was done by our illustrious FM leader, Rick, during one of his "awake" moments, when he thought he was being clever. Rick also has a nickname, but his didn't last on the forum for more than a day.

As for the fishing, there's been some folks who have been picking up a few crappies in the daylight hours and into the late afternoon out of the southshore accesses, fishing in the 13-14' depths; and for those heading out of the eastside traveling out to those same depths they've been finding a pretty decent late afternoon evening bite fishing about 1' off the bottom. The temps have been discouraging to do much moving around and there haven't been hoards of folks up here this past week. But now that Christmas is over and the temps are on a slight warming trend we have more folks heading up this week to try to get into the slabs.

Yes,

Pro Lounge girl refers to Drakes ability to power nap in the mornings while everyone else is working away. Drake came up with a moniker for me - "Lazy Boy" in retaliation even though I was up later than Drake and up hours before she was (that was the origin of Lounge girl anyway). Drake needs her beauty sleep don't ya know.

As you can see her nickname stuck for good reason. She continues on needing here beauty sleep on most days prefering to make her husband get up and do all the hard work through the late mornings.

Fire up the GPS, I'm gonna finally spill the beans. (since Jigglestick just won't be precise enough with the location of the "2.25 mile honey hole".

OKAY here's the scoop; I've heard tell that anywhere west of 94*43' west longitude is a crappie slamfest.

Wall eyell be,

That sure narrows it down!!! I'll run right out there.! Careful, you may get some $#!+ for giving away too many details. LOL. I would bet it is also East of the Res. border. Speaking of which, does anyone know the Longitude of the border?

Bhead

The longitude I gave is about 20 seconds east of the Res border. So just to give it a little margin for safety, I wouldn't go West of 94 degrees 43 minutes. That would give you a 50 to 60 foot cushion for GPS error and such.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
