nice size sunfish in 15 fow about 9 feet down with small jig and a piece of leech. Slibobbers work good try the edge of any weedline you mark consistent suspended fish then anchor you will catch plenty of pannies and im sure a few bass in the process. Walleye fishing is tough unless you get out after dark, even then spotty to say the least

Out on Minnewaska today and ouch...any hints or help on the fall minnewaska bite would be well appreciated! Lots of bass, along with a couple crappies and big sunnies. Do walleyes exist in this lake?

I was out on Sunday fishing for smallies. I was in 2.5 to 3 feet on the edge of the weed rock transition and caught 3 walleyes on a rattle trap. This was in the middle of the day. Also caught a ton of bass and a 6 and 7 pound pike. I wasn't fishing for walleyes but I would say that in the evening if you go really shallow and cast some shallow running cranks ripping them through the isolated weed clumps you should find some walleyes.

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.

      Why so many batteries???  lol   I use with weed wacker and leaf blower.  pine needle blower mainly  soooo much nicer than sweeping;

      then I will need to buy the bigger dewalt batteries. they look spendy.  I have 7 ryobi batteries now. 2 are the 4 amp.    600 pounds should be plenty  from what all are saying. I can take the 2 , 4 amps back and grab the dewalt. hmmmmmm, decisions desicions. lol
