Is there any eye action on the river as of late?

Not much going on the river right now. The lake is starting to give up some crappies near the clay banks. There have been some big walleyes caught lately. The bite isn't fast and furious but they are getting some.

The 'eye bite is still slow huh? Spent the last couple weekends out there and got 2 total... Hoping to have the bite warm a little as we end out the season... Are the crappies coming thru at nite or are people picking them up throughout the day? We saw a couple schools of 3 during the day that wouldnt even look at our minnows... :-/

Was out on LQP this past weekend both days from 10:00am till 7:00pm with not much to show for it. Moved around alot from Ingrebretsons south to the eagle nest. Only caught 3 striped bass. Water was like green peas soup. Seemed like most people didn't show up until after 5:00 but couldn't stay for the night bite. crazy.gif

I'm headed out this weekend hoping to snag a few crappies.

What has recent snow done? Hoping to drive to Engebrettsons at least and maybe on the lake or south of the landing?

thanks for any info!

well, I found out why there wasn't any posts!

No body driving south of Ingebrettson's on shore.

Looked like I maybe could have made on the road but stuck in the middle of no where seemed like a poor option

If the water levels remains too high and low levels are flooded, I won't be able to get to the Marsh dam.

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
