Pretty slow Saturday morning. I was out from 6:00 - 11:00 a.m. I only saw one fish caught. It was not in my boat! The reports from guys that I talked to were favorable from last week. I am not sure what was wrong yesterday but it was a slow morning. I think the best is yet to come in the Prescott area.

Water temps around marine this weekend were 55-56 and the water was as low as I have seen it this time of year. On the upside, I caught a bunch of white bass and had a blast on saturday afternoon. Had a good meal of them tonight and can't wait to get back out there again. I heard they are hot and heavy up around Taylors falls as well!

Jloomis, It was good to meet you the other day! Never know when you are going to run into a fellow FM'r so I always ask now. I am hoping to get back out a couple times this week before the opener. Again, thanks for the fishing report and it was nice to meet you!

I was down there on Saturday as well, had a couple of bites along with a couple of snags on jigs (both meat and plastics). I was even skilled enough to catch myself a rock. After a couple of hours of the same old same old we decided to pull some cranks up shallow (< 12 fow) and it took us about 10 minutes to tie into our first one (26") and 10 or 15 minutes later had a bigger one on which threw the hook before getting it into the boat. Guess it didn't want it's picture taken. We had our luck on #5 glass shadraps pulling them along at 1.1 - 1.3 mph. We were hitting an area that had some scattered rock piles which the fish seemed to be relating to. Definitely one of those days that if you keep your mind open and willing to try different techniques good things might happen.

Hey fanatic- What kind of fish did you hook in to? 'Eye, rough fish...

Both of them were eyes. I don't have a positive ID on the type of rock yet so to tell you the truth I don't know for sure if it was in season or not. I believe the rock was done spawning because it was relatively thin so I didn't feel too bad about keeping it. I'll be splitting my time between Prescott and Hudson this coming weekend if my beautiful bride will give me the pass. Say hey if you see a Tracker Tundra down there. I'll probably be able to give you a lot of techniques and locations that didn't put fish in the boat.

I was hoping to maybe get out either Thurs day evening or Friday am this week. I wil know about thursday probably by tomorrow. I guess you wouldn't mind fishing out of the "TINCAN" as I affectionately call it. Been a boat for me to fish from since it was brand spanking new in 76! Doesn't leak and floats the skinny water pretty well too! I'll post when I find out about Thursday night.

Went there on Sat. Shore fishing. One keeper, white bass, the rest are under slot limit(under 15). The bite is on right at dusk. Using rapala and jigs. The bigger the bait the bigger the fish.

      Good evening,   i recently inherited a 12 foot aluminum boat, and I would like to re-do the interior. (Add carpet to the benches, possibly add marine grade plywood to the floor and carpet the floor as well.)   does anybody have any experience doing this, or recommend anybody that is good with this type of thing?    Trying to figure out if it's worth it to pay someone to do it, or try and figure out how to do it myself with no experience.    Anyways, thanks in advance!

      Nice bass Eyeguy. I can imagine that Northern was fun peeling out line and all on the yak lol.   Hit the miss on my way home.Was curious what was hanging out by a drain I often fished in the past.Found a few typical average sized bass and a sucker.Way to kill 15 minutes on my way home from work lmao.I love it

      Nice Fish ST! Loadmaster, I hope it was nothing major or serious that had you in the hospital.  I was just informed by the Chief of Staff that I get to do house projects this weekend..sigh..maybe Monday I'll get to go out.

      I went yesterday.  Bite was good.  Saw lots of people catching fish.

      Sorry...been posting a few pics in the Panfish section...I've been out a lot chasing crappies, started 10 days after ice out. I did the eye opener and we did good real shallow 4-6ft with jig and shiner but that one eye outing is it for me unless I go out late fall for them again.  Crappies bite has been real good...just not in normal spots...not many spawned in the shallow reeds but beds we deeper 5-7 ft in many lakes. I've been as far North as Little Bemidji to as far South as S. Lida and many lakes in between. Went out Saturday morning early and found them in 12.5ft suspended real high; used the smallest rap they make and just fan casted all around the boat and they were aggressive.  Cabbage is coming up and healthy in most lakes and they will be moving into the cabbage when it warms up. Water clarity has been unbelievable in every lake I've been on so far. Another yo-yo weather pattern makes it more challenging for sure....but search and you will find.

      WINDY today but got out for a couple hours.   30 inch northern looked all spawned out.  got a few dandy bass. The last smally looks like it ate a duck! LOL

      Just curious if anyone else was out on the chain braving the rain sat and sunday?

      Contact the DNR if there are serious concerns.  Tournaments have to be permitted through them.  If they're not handling the fish correctly, they might lose their permit.
