Was just home visiting my parents over the weekend. Took the kids out on Saturday night. There were 2 to 3 footers out there and we lasted about 45 minutes trolling. I guess the 6 and 8 year olds havent had enough experience to get their sea legs/stomachs. Had to turn around and head back in when the vomiting began. We were just starting to mark a bunch of fish in 90 feet just at the edge of the bank out of Sturgeon Bay. The report is that the fish are biting very well at the moment if you can stay out there longer than we did. I felt pretty bad for the kids but hopefully next time it will be a little bit calmer out there.

As a side note, the perch are biting pretty well in the bay with quite a few fish in the 10 to 12 inch range if you were looking for something to do during the day. We finally found a good use for the small gobies. The perch love them. We could catch a few dozen gobies in the 2 to 3" range and the perch just gobbled them.

Good luck to anyone headed up there. With the salmon derby just completed, there are few boats out there right now, which is nice.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
