Going up this weekend to get my after 10pm fishing going takin girlfriend. Wonder if the flats are too risky or stay close to shore. She wants to catch a hog.

Last Tuesday we fished a mile or two out over rocks in 22' of water. We caught numerous 'eyes between 8:00 and 9:30 in the evening including a 28" a 27" and several 26." You don't need to go out that far to find big fish. smile.gif

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure the night ban doesn't come off until Monday the 11th at 12:01 a.m.

Night closure: No one may fish for any species or possess fishing gear on the lake from 10 p.m. through 6 a.m. starting at 10 p.m. May 14 and ending at 12:01 a.m. June 11.

This means you can start fishing Monday morning June 11th, at 12:01AM

Hey, Geeksquad may have had another type of "fishing" he was referring to and he did clearly state his girlfriend was going to be on board. He likely isn't planning on having fishing gear on board. blush.gifwink.gif

That's another funny part of the regs...

You have to come in by 10pm Sunday night to get off the lake, and then wait 2 hours to go back out and night fish again after midnight. I suppose they have to make it a black and white line in the regs, but just thought that was a little funny as we will be staying up there during this time frame and probably fishing.... cool.gif

      Buddy and I went out yesterday around noon. Fished for a few hours was a little windy but not to bad. Only got a small largemouth and one decent gill. Only fished for 2-3 hours tried all over the small lake we were on. Ooh well still nice to finnaly get out. Planning on taking the yak out on opener do a bass/pike/ walleye trip so exited for that. Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.

      Kinda cold and windy yesterday. Fish really didn't seem to mind though. Finding ggod sized fish was the goal for the afternoon. Started off in a feeding bay that has a section of deeper water in it. This deeper water is where I found all my fish. Crappies were holding tight to the weed cover around the hole, while gills were closer to the surface. It wasn't fast fishing by any means, still I managed to find some real quality pannies

      I have two Vexilar transducers.    1) Thru hull/trolling motor- used.  From FL8 2) New never used, high speed.       I looked on Vexilar's site, The one's they sell say FL8 or FL18.  Checked FAQ and they look like they are interchangeable with other models???  Can text pictures-what do you have?
