The bite has slowed considerably over the weekend with all the traffic that was out there. As for best times evenings still seem better than mornings, so try and be set up by 3 or so.Good luck!

I have been fishing 8am to 2pm the last week or so. The best times that I have for crappies are from 8-11 and then it dies off. Yesterday, when the fish stopped biting in the permanent, I went out searching for fish. I walked 30 ft. to an open hole and found the motherload. I stood there for the next hour and caught about 15 crappies. 10 of these were over 9 inches and one was a shade under 12. This was at noon in about 38 fow. The night bite really died in my spot, but the bobbers are flying down the holes as soon as I get there in the morning. Fishing season is over and its back to school for me. Hope this info helps someone, but save some for me next year.

Thanks for info Bigfife! If they aren't biting its time to move. Being mobile is the key to catching fish. With all the pressure at night it makes sense that could find them in the morning looking to eat. Good luck in school.

Just wondering if there were any diehards on the lake this weekend. looking to head out wednesday in search of some crappies for the freezer. had the three year old out for his first timr last week and managed to scrape out a meal of fish between candy dispensing and putting the minnows back in the bucket (some of them slightly worse for wear), but he was a trooper for 3.5 hrs and seemed to enjoy himself! anyone got and suggestions for those fish that seem to just swim with it and not take it enough for a hookset

Thats awesome Crewdog that you brought your little buddy out there! The bonds that are created through fishing last a lifetime!!

A trick to try for those light biters is to use a spring bobber, you can detect the faintest of bites, quite often you will see the spring actually rise not drop when you have a fish. If you have ever watched panfish hit either with a camera or sight fishing, you would be amazed at the fish that bite that you never feel. Good luck out there!! Hopefully you and your little buddy can make it out to the ICE Series! My office is donating a $200.00 Gander Mountain gift certificate to the kid with the heaviest weight. So hope we can see you out there!

      Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symtoms of obsessive-conpulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

      I literally just watched an episode of Linders Angling Edge where they echoed exactly what SkunkedAgains quote claimed.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.
