Started off in front of the bluffs got two eaters 15 1/2 -17" early on leeches, moon glow hooks, went across to the cove picked up a sauger 14", then back across and bottom bounce my way back down river picked up two more eaters, should of spent the morning bouncing with spinners (Gold )and a crawler but at least I got five to show for the effort, plus a mix of species caught, trip planned again in the early morning. wink.gif

Sounds like you did ok out there walli1. We tried around some of the areas you did and caught a sheepster and one good sized channel cat. We headed up river and found some sunfish, a 15 inch sauger and another eater channel cat. I am still suprised I am not catching more sheephead out there. I did see quite a few sheepsters caught by another boater on minnows though. I used mainly crawlers, but we did get one channel on a leech. Water temp was 73 when we started and 74 when we left. The boat traffic did not get heavy until around 11 am.

I went back to bottom bouncers seems that its the best way yet to put fish in the boat when the bite is slow, you can cover more water a get the bait infront of hungry fish.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
