Well here it is...Hooked up with a couple FMer's staying at fishmeisters cabin and went fishing for six hours on Tuesday. It went well, unfortunately we were constantly on the chase for some bigger fish. Found two good spots, one of which was loaded with 'eyes where a mud line met up with the rock, all the fish there were at biggest 12"-12 1/4" went out to another spot on an Island and Northlander hooked up with a nice 20-21" Moved and graphed a couple more spots with nothing on them, and went out into sand bay, where we found some 'eyes, but again small, with the exception of a couple.

That evening I went out with my dad after some crappies, we ended up catching and releasing 20-25 decent crappies, with a couple around 12" and two pushing 14". Found the fish in 30' of water, Northland Slupies were working best.

Wednesday 8-16, didn't make it out to Fishmeisters cabin in time to fish with Steve and Randy, I ended up going after crappies in Redgut, found a large school and ended up keeping my 10 with a combined weight on almost 16lbs!! A few fish pushed two, with the average being 1 1/2 lbs. Found them in 26-32' feet of water suspended four to sixteen feet off bottom.

Good Luck Fishing Everyone!!! grin.gif

Northlander & Loonasea,

Your company was great also, I wanted to hook up with some bigger fish too, but thats the way it goes. I figured that you didn't have any cell service, but at the time it was the only thing that I could think of doing to get ahold of you, other than driving all the way back out to the lake again.

Take Care Guys, Looking Forward to Meeting up With Ya Again!! grin.gif

Northlander, whats your e-mail? Mine is bluebill7788@hotmail.com. I have school from 8:00 am through 1:00 pm M-F. I don't know what hours I will be working, or if I will be working yet, I haven't heard from any of the places that I applied to. I'll drop you a message when I get that figured out.

Take Care! grin.gif

      Mississippi is iced up above the 10th street dam. There is a little ice flow in the middle.

      I'm hoping the snow they are forecasting shows up. Because then it's on for sure.    Put new glass on the light weight .223 so I don't have to carry the heavy target weight gun around. Just not practical where I hunt to have a 300yard gun. A 150yard gun will do just fine.    When you cary a shotgun and a rifle on almost every stand a few extra pounds can add up in a hurry.    Good luck tonight moose

      Twin is pretty deep. One of the last to freeze over in most years.    I wasnt home yesterday evening to see if any more kids went through the ice.    I will did the spud out and see how thick  it is by shore tomorrow.
