Little bro and I floatubed/wade-fished a small metro lake on 4-21. The big 'gills were going wild in 1 to 4 feet of water on the north side. A few 'craps and bass in the mix. A nice and windy day to be out. BTW a 1/32 oz jig head tipped with a bit of night crawler outfished plastics and hair jigs 3 to 1...

I was out on WBL on Thursday/Friday. You had to be fishing on the side of the lake or bay that the wind was blowing into. It was tough in the waves but the fish were biting. Saturday was just to rough to go out and have fun.

Two of my buddies and I braved the wind for as long as we could on saturday on the northeast side by the water ski course. Got 3 nice crappies and one dink. Got too windy at about noon. Fished in other areas and got nothing but bass and northerns. Man we got soaked from the waves crashing into the boat.

On the other hand, today was very good for crappies. Got our limit (didn't keep all of them) in about 3 hours. Fished away from the crowd and found some dandies. By the way the guy working at the city access was talking sounds like everyone was getting them.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
