Rustle, rustle, rustle(sound of atlas being looked at to figure out where north of Appleton is). Squeal, squeal, squeal(sound of rigs heading that way). They have that cheap intensive harvest permit and their gonna get some. Good luck to all.

depends, if its shadowgrass/max4 cabelas has them at $160 brand new, if its kackie color they have them listed at $130, i would guess if its in pretty good shape you could get between $80 and $100 for it. but if u really wanna get rid of it i'll give you $50 smirk.gif

Here is another report. Go west of Ivanhoe about 5 to 7 miles or so. There is a WMA on the north side of 19 that has a nice size body of water on it. It was covered with snows and blues today (in the morning and the afternoon.) They were there on Friday as well and were working a picked corn field in a WMA to the east. I would not recommend this to anybody outside the Ivanhoe area. One blast at those birds, and they will be gone. And be careful how you approach them. Do not let them see you leave your car or sneaking up on them. And one more careful note, there are quite a few specklebellys with them. But there are a enough snows for a good, quick shoot if you play it right.

Well, they were still there this morning. They were landing in a corn field to the east of the WMA. Basically right across the road. If someone wants some SOBs, and lives in the Marshall/Ivanhoe area, go get 'em. A guy who sets up in that ditch between the geese and the water will have some opportunities.

      Small minnow raps, #2 mepps spinners, small spoons. Don't need anything else.

      What a great day jigging out in the mud. Little or no wind all day and it was pretty warm but fish were active, biting and large. A big change came yesterday on my close by spots that threw me for a loop but the fish a few miles away seem unphased. I will say it again a great day!

      In the summer they seem to be about 20' feet down over 50'-80' feet of water. We trolled small raps with what ever would get it down there. I also had down riggers to use.  You could try some deep hook and slip bobbers with a worm in some of the deeper bays to see if they will take it?  Good luck.

      I have a bait/rigging question. The kids and I were out on Big Watab chasing a suntan and when I told them that the lake has trout they wanted to try for them but I mostly fish sunnies and crappies. What would I need to get to fish for trout out there? Looking back in the forums I see that some guys use leadcore (I'm not buying new rod/reels) and some use bobbers. Any advice on a common bobber set up? Also, I have an "active" 10 year old so it seems that jigging works best to keep him busy, any advice on jigging for trout?

      Update! Water is way down! But I was able to get a smallmouth with a topwater plug.  And a catfish broke my leader off a  worm, was very confused. Going again tomorrow

      Thanks for the tips guys i ended up buying 1/4. Rocks are tuff to fish. I always lose a few jigs
