seen a few truck out there yesterday, hows the accesses, would it be best to walk out now or is there still a decent way on to the glenwood side with a truck? I went on the beach about 4 days ago and it looked like it was about shot. But maybe it healed with the cool overnight temps? confused.gif

I went out from the beach Saturday with my pickup. I wouldn’t try it again. The first 30 ft was not good. After that the ice was fine. Maybe the strong NW wind today will push the good ice to shore. wink.gif Are there other areas on the Glenwood side that people drive on?

Definelitly 4 wheeler or walk from here on. Not bad conditions to pull a sled by hand if not going real far. Good crappie bite from 6:30-8 pm.

Are you catching any size to the crappies? Was out there a couple weekends ago, and we caught mostly sunfish (a few over 1/2) and only 5 crappies. What bothered me was they were no bigger than the lakes around here. I remember catching some nice (12"+) fish there, but these were barely 10. Thanks for replies.

Most were 8-10 in., some 10-11, You could sort to a 10-11 inch average. I throw the big ones back as well as the smaller. The mid size are easy enough to clean for me and I don't need that many.

      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.

      This bass likes 50F weather and a Senkos

      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.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?

      Probably not what your wanting to hear,  but I bit the bullet for an LX High speed transducer a couple years ago for my LX-6. Run it a couple times before removing it from my boat and going with a Lowrance. I found that on plane I frequently lost sonar and hard to see in bright sun. Hard to eliminate the excess noise as well. Ended up taking a real hard beating on getting rid of it also. Just my opinion, but I recommend checking out the Garmin Strikers or comparable Lowrance instead for the money. Love my LX for the ice, but it will remain my ice unit.
