The water clarity/algae issue may have to do with recent lake turn-over in the area. This is typically a time, especially with water temperatures in the mid-40's, to snap jig or pitch large plastic presentations.

I know that there is a backflow in lake Sakatah and that may have been what was causing the gren water, because I know that alot of sloughs that have streams through them are somewhat clear, but when that water gets low and stops floing, it doesn't matter how cold the water is because it is gonna be pea soup!!!

i thought maybe the turnover,but i figured that was over considering the water temp.but we were out on mazaska yesterday,and there was junk floating all over telling me the lake bottom just let loose,and nobody boated either a walleye or bass for the league,tough fishing.this kinda points towards turnover,when the fishing is that bad in the fall,either that or its the cold front hanging over us.either way it should pick up real soon,hopefully! confused.gif

      I wondered if I had stepped thru a time warp and  was back in 1997............really fun day today about 5.5 miles off the south shore. LOTS of action and some nice fish. Two overs and 2 nice keepers at 17" with 6 very nice saugers to fill the bucket, plus 1 sumo perch. Quite a few littles but the action from 10 to 2:30 was much like it used to be. Also several tullibees and they were the biggest I've seen here in a while. Zero fish jigging but glow pink Geminis and glow red Northland forage things were working very well. Wow, is that snow hard.......if it rains at all on Saturday, the snowpack will be like cement.   Good luck.

      Fished Pike Bay this afternoon and did ok, caught 3 walters and a ton of perch that we sorted through, ended up with a half a dozen solid keepers. Didn't move, set up in 19' and stayed there all day. Lots of folks out there tonight enjoying this beautiful weather.

      The real problem with jerky is it just does not last long? I try to store it to make it last longer and the next thing I know it's gone!  Who's eating it! My wife doesn't like it and I'm the only other one home.  Aliens or Big Foot?

      I agree with Rick.    I would not venture to any of the lakes with a current with a wheeler without knowing how the ice forms in these areas.   koetter, zumwalles, and Krays especially.   Plus the bridges or channels that connect them are usually not passable.      I have made it to the 2 cat holes in koetter but the entrance from cedar island is very dangerous.   You can get there from the winter access on cedar island.  about a 2-3 mile drive by wheeler.  (do not go near the bridge at the end of koetter   Don
