Heading back up from Sunny Florida!

Hey All!

Bringing my kids up to see my folks this Wednesday, and was hoping to get out to do some fishing for Pike and Eyes (two species I miss fishing for now that I live in Florida).

I was hoping someone could give me a couple tips on what the water temps are like, as in has it gotten down into the lower 50's where the ciscoes start to move shallow? I don't need any secret honey holes, but at what depths should I currently start looking for bigger fish?

Is it to early for the night time crank trolling thing?

Thanks for your time!

Clemmy, the water was 55deg. yesterday, and steadily dropping (about 10deg. over the last two weeks). You should get pike on deeper points and humps(20-40ft.), they mark real well on good electronics. I would troll big crankbaits for eaters or drag some big minnows on live-bait rigs for a better chance for nicer fish. The night trolling is your best bet for walleyes. The night fishing for me recently has stunk, could be cold front, could be turn-over. Good luck and bring some of that Florida heat up with you.

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.
