Kevin, I have not been on Norway for awhile. When I duck hunt for the first week of the season. I can catch crappies suspended out in the center. Bass come back into the weeds,spinnerbaits and jig/pig works well. The walleyes do come into the shallows after dark. You'll need to set-up a milk run go around casting to structure. Yes you will get some sheepies but you maybe surprised at the quality of walleyes you do get. I know a guy who has caught several walleyes over 10lbs doing this on Norway.

Jim thanks for the info! kind of new to the fishing thing so I'm just learning! We actually live on West Norway so it is very shallow. Typically we have been doing a lot of Lindy Riggin with a leach catching a ton of Sheephead. When we go into the main lake everyone fishes the same spot so I know where there at I just have to figure out what they are using?? With the Crappies are you just using a bobber and a minnow? I have no Idea what a Jig/Pig is I am assuming some kind of weedles jig of some sort. Im sorry I am not up with the terminology but what the heck is a milk run????????? You have a ton of post and you probably fish about as much as I wish I could. I have a small child so sometimes my time is limited and I have been getting real frustrated when I am on the lake because I don't know what the hell I am doing. Please help any advice would work. Thank you so much Kevin

Kevin where on West Norway are you located? My parents live next to Dilley's, I have fished Norway for several years. When I mentioned a milk-run, look at 5 or 6 main spots that you think would hold fish, then go, spot to spot. The channels have always been a good starting spot. E-mail me, I show you some other spots. jigginjim@aol.com

I bought a house 2 down from Dilley’s the original owner was Charles Shuck if you know him? Do your parents still live on the lake???? My brothers and I bought the place this time last year. Have caught some real nice crappies off the dock early spring but every time we get in the boat all we catch is sheep head! If you had some advice on the lake that would be awesome. Actually I plan on going up there tonight and fishing all day tomorrow!

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
