Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface. Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass. we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal. Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan. Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots. A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!! We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs. I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn. if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year. Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.
I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.
Sorry I had to edit your title. I've been hearing some people are upset about the change. But I also heard there were some positives about it too. I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.
It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest. I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.
That laker Rob caught was a hawg! Too bad he got it taken away.
Ive had the same issue. I turned both the motor and remote of for 30 seconds or so and then worked fine. it has happened twice for me. Hope its not reoccurring which would be very annoying. For the cost, this stuff should work. I wonder if they are I-link motors? Mine is.
Lengths were a little tough to figure out without stressing the fish. My board only goes to 24 and that wasn't enough.
I did tare my digital scale with the hoop of my rubber net and weighed em in that. One was 6; the other 8.4. I had another 24 incher earlier in the day but didn't weigh it.
We got 1 pike and severa smallies too but let everything go since fish wasn't on the menu this weekend.
