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.

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
