I went out of Appledorns today. Fished all day in 29-30 fow. Managed to get 10 jumbos. No eyes. Bite was a bit slow. I had to use small jigs with crappie minnows in the morning. I was using a gold pimple w/minnowhead to get a few bites and draw them to the dead stick once it hit mid day. Most of the jumbos came on a small green/black marmooska. They wanted the bait about 2-3 feet off the bottom. Got a chance to meet Cranker as well, thanks for the help grin.gif. I may go up in the morning since it looks like the weather will hold most of the day. It's been a few years since I have been up there. It was great to catch those big perch again.

I was out on the south end Thurs afternoon-evening. It was slow catching but the fish were there. Ended up with a nice 22" eye and a few small perch, but no keepers. The eye hit a small jig and waxies and was a blast pulling up on the ultralight.

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
