I did not see that but noticed the roads were still bad from the ice storm on Friday-Saturday the 7th-8th. Some vehicles were driving 60MPH and some were 30MPH with everything in between. Thought for sure I was going to see somebody slip-slidin' away.

That is a major problem. Fishermen please slow down. the crappies will wait for you. That seems to be one of the biggest gripes with locals. Passing and speeding, Some people dont feel safe driving over 50 when the roads are bad. Not everyone has a 4 wheel drive. I promis the fish will wair for you. Cookie

What could happens when you drive slow

The fisherman driving the truck was almost in shock when he finally figured out what had happened. The person in the car said, "I was only going 77 mph." The pick-up was going 35 mph because of the icy road conditions.

Thankfully ! NO one was hurt

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .

      We've got the old Lakemaster chip in our Lowrance 10" unit (circa 2008-ish, I think).  The Lowrance is the generation before the HDS, but I forget the exact model.  Since getting that Lakemaster chip, Lakemaster was bought by Humminbird and their chips are now only compatible with Humminbird  units.  You might be able to find a used chip somewhere, but be sure it's from before the Humminbird acquisition.   Navionics is the only other option for Lowrance that I know of. Regardless, there have been several 1-foot soundings done in the recent past, so be sure that whatever you get has that level of detail and you should be satisfied.   There are several old threads on GPS chips for LOTW...use the search box at the upper right of your browser and type in "LOTW chip" (without the quotes).
