Mud Question....

4 posts in this topic

At what depth does the mud usually start or does it vary.

What do I look for on my graph.... a "fuzzy" bottom?

Thanks

Mud to hard bottom transitions on this lake vary from place to place, they're where you find them.... Anywheres from 1 foot to 30+ foot you can find them I'd reckon.

Depending on your sonar the bottom will show a color change or grayscale change, with a flasher the 'width' of the bottom return will be less over the soft bottom than the hard.

Sal, if you head out to fish the basin, look for fish not just mud. The schools that form up in the basin can be massive. When Fiskynut and I were out recently, we were on a school of fish that was enourmous. Most of the time there were 30 to 50 fish on the graph all the time. Fisky thought it looked like I was in simulator mode.

Good luck.

      A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning.   Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning.  Strange.   About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind.  They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE.  Now all is quite and cold.   Giving them till 10 then off to work.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.
