Well I started the day with alot of confidence in a good bite on eyes,but that faded fast.Newbie,I have to agree about the cold.I hit several spots today with only the silver bass active until this afternoon.About 1pm i checked out a spot i havent been to for a couple of years.1st fish was a nice slab crappie,after that it was one smallmouth after the other for three hours.Ended up with around 15 crappies and around 25 smallmouth biggest being very close to 4lbs,forgot all about the eyes for one day and it didnt seem so cold out either smile.gifFish were taken on jig and minnow and sonar baits

Croixeyes, sounds like you had a great day! Congrats. Sitting here looking out the window wishing I was freezing my ars off out on the boat...

Not sure the 'eye bite has really turned on yet. I plan on giving it a go next weekend.

Hey croixeyes,

Just a quickie for you, how do you work your blade baits? I have hada limited success with them and have always assumed you just "ripped" them? I have tried both sonars and cicada's...do you have a preference? How about color and size? Thanks for the report as well. I'll be working my way down there this week sometime and sure hope the plastic bite kicks in soon!!!

Cbreeze.........Ive tried several brands of blade baits,the one i have most of my success with is a no name brand,I dont even know where I got it.Anyway,colors I like are similar to colors I jig fish with.Greens,chartruse,silver,are some of the main colors I use.As far as technic, I do a lift drop and hold method,fairly aggressive.A little more aggressive if Im fishing deeper and less in shallow.Most times im getting hit on the hold after the rip and drop .The zip lures work pretty well except I dont like the hooks they use,hedons dont seem to vibrate as much as some others.Just remember when using them to stay vertical at all times,youll get optimum vibration from the baits that way...Good luck out there...

      Do you typically catch quite a few overs on fish? I fished it for the first time today and we got lots of gills and a few good quality eyes...The wind made boat control a pain.

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      I use a big zip tie that will slide on and off.
