We fished the south/ southest part of the lake on Sun morning. Launched out of Fther Hennepin. We didn't have to go very far to catch fish. We started drifting with leaches on snells 6-9 feet in length. Had a couple in the boat and a few misses on first drift. We made a few passes and picked up a few nice eater/keeper size fish. We then moved a little north and fished hawkbill area. There the luck was about the same a few too big and small but a nice mix of keepers. The bite was not fast and ferious, but steady enough to keep us interested. We packed up a little after 1:00 (just before the heavier rain) with 10 keepers between 4 guys in the boat. Biggest was 24". It was a good day out there, I can't wait to get back out!

Thanks for the report.

When you drift, how fast do you like to go (with the snells) and what size weight do you use?

I didn't have the GPS with (not in my boat) but we used a drift sock to slow us down a bit and that seemed to help. I think most of us were using 1/4 oz weights. Were were using red, orange, chartruese hooks with green or red beeds. The color didn't seem to make a big difference. Good luck on the pond!

      Much different lake from a week ago. Snow on shores and ice in reeds. Water temps were down quite a bit. 42 in main lake 45 in shallow bays. Had a few followers on spinner baits but no hits.

      Went fishing for a couple hours yesterday. Water temp was 48-50. It was a nice day to be out on the water. My arms and neck are a lovely shade of red to prove it. Make sure you're smarter than me and toss a tube of sunscreen in the tackle box before you head out.

      Smoked up 4 for a test and really good!  Quite different than the crappies. Nice and oily and the skin peels right off. Scales are pretty big so a bit of a mess but easy peasy.

      I attended an event Saturday out of Everts. Eye bite was really slow for the 20 boats but a few nice fish were caught. Got into a buncha white bass at the end of the day and it was game on.   Brined some overnight and smoked em up to try them. We thru cranks and swim baits all day.
