We are going to try Madison this a.m., so we'll see how that goes. I wasn't expecting to see 35 degrees on the thermometer!! I'll post later & let you know if you'll need dynamite & a net grin.gif At least it shouldn't be a monsoon out there today. L2f

I was out on Madison last night and the crappies seem to be in at least 4 feet of water. They started biting good once the wind died down and the sun went down. Pulled in one sunny and a couple of bass in that same depth.

i was out there last sunday nite and ended up getting about a dozen crappies and a few walleyes and some bass and a sunfish. also ive caught all of these within 7 feet of water towards evening. after the wind died down the bite turned on. if u go back in areas where the trees block the wind u might catch some crappies there as well and a variety of fish possibly.

Well, I spent the whole day there today & caught about a dozen crappies (3 keepable, 10"). These were along a gradual drop-off that went from 6'-18' slow trolling a spinner/minnow.The nicer ones were in the deeper of the range. Got 2 eyes in 14' in another area on a jig/leech combo. A few small bass, & oh yeah, a sheepie.I did pitch the submerged veg for pike but nothing doing. ?? Too much sunshine but all in all, a good day on the water.

My brother had originally come up to go fishing this week, but got impatient and with the wind and went home. So i went fishing on thursday by myself. Did great. Caught my limit of crappie in 1.5 hours. Caught my brothers limit also. Let the 3 biggest ones go but of course i could not keep his because he went back home. Too bad for him. They topped the 12 to 12.5 in mark. Also c and r'ed one 27 in northern. Only one walleye though. But all in all a very good day. My best yet. And all the crappie i did keep were all for a meal for me and my family. Sorry, no pictures.

      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.

      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.
