    got into some nice bluegills last week. As well as found a pod of 12"+ white crappies. The bluegill in the picture was 10.5", was just one of about 20 about that size. All still swimming!

    Every catch over 100 10+ inch blue gills in a day? I can say I have now Special regulations on the lake only keep 1 over 8 inches the biggest one went 11.25

    Pulled my first lead of the year today, middle of the afternoon in the pontoon. Got 13 walleyes in about 2.5 hours, lots of nice keeper size 15-16”. Beautiful day on the water, light breeze and smoke filtered sunshine. Can’t wait to see what a fishing boat can produce tomorrow.

    Well I got skunked on my first ever attempt to fish muskies. It was still a lot of fun and I will try it again!

    Actually, it makes perfect sense. The car's charging system probably can't keep up for the same reason. I know when I fire up my farm tractor, even when it doesn't take much to get it started, it can take a lot longer than one realizes to recharge the batteries to full strength. During the winter, I only use the tractor for short periods so I often have to put a charger on it after each use to be sure the batteries are up to full power. Can have similar issues with ATVs. Winches can put a pretty heavy load on the electrical system and using them to lift a blade repeatedly will put a drain on the battery that the charging system is unable to keep up to. Starting an engine takes a lot of power and it takes more than just a few seconds to recharge the battery afterwards.

    Got out to chase a few largemouth this evening in the Cushing area. A surprisingly good bite. Larger fish were tight to shore and stacked near weed rollers. Plastics wacky rigged out fished everything.

    Yup, that’s one that’s as tough or tougher than lakers. Keep at it! I’ve fished 6 days this year em and boated 2. Been fortunate enough to see some every time out though, so I’ll take that. Glad to hear you’re trying it out.

    Mr Pike, if you are going through blades that fast on the k-drill, you will certainly dull them out just as fast or faster on a Nils. The Ripper style blades that come on the K are about as good as it gets as far as durability goes.

    I wonder just how many holes you cut before dulling your blades. Are you always fishing dirty ice ? The Nils will be way easier on your drill but if you are on dirty ice it will dull just as fast or even faster. If you go the Nils route make sure to have an extra blade so you can send it in and still ice fish. Frank ( Surface Tension ) is quick with his turn around time but has his real busy moments as well and you would hate to miss a weekend.

    I haven't caught many walleyes in there lately but the water is really warm and pretty clear now so I don't really expect to. If I spent more time in a deeper hole using a slower technique I could probably catch a couple. With the lack of rain lately, the river level has leveled off nicely to an even flow too. I do catch an occasional pike in there, and it seems they always hang out in the areas with less current.

    Tuesday will be post frontal with wind out of the northwest, not a great day for Muskies. Work the weeds and the deep edges of main lake points and rock structures. Glttertails, and large hair can be effective along with medium sized gliders or minnow style shallow running crankbait. Don't forget to throw a topwater on occasion. "Ace" "It's just fishing man".

    She might have a bad alternator too.

    I have had this same issue and came to the conclusion that I don't run the outboard enough to recharge the battery back to full capacity. I fish medium to smaller lakes and thus don't spend a whole lot of time at high speeds going across the lake ... just a short move here and there searching for fish. So I end up starting the engine 20-30 times per outing, but not running the outboard enough to get it back up to full voltage. And my Hummer shuts down when I crank the engine. So I now know that I need to put the charger on my starting battery at the end of the day. FYI, my wife has a similar issue with her SUV ... new Interstate battery keeps going down because she starts it, drives a couple miles ... stops, then starts it again and comes home. She rarely goes more than a couple miles per trip amd never over 30 mph. The alternator doesn't keep up with her use of the starter and thus gets low after a few weeks.

    You may have high resistance from a long run of light wire from the battery to the Bird. This is a common problem. Run 10-gauge wires directly from the battery. Bypass the terminal box at the dash. Shorten up the factory 16-gauge wire on the Bird as much as possible and splice in the 10-gauge. Put a 3-amp spade-type fuse inline on the positive wire as close to the battery as practical.

    Hi guys. The weather Is finally warming up the past two days. I’ve been able to pick up about 10 walleyes off the weeds and rocks 14 to 18ft, Lindy crawler or leach.. Also caught a half a dozen crayfish as well. Interesting. Never caught a cray fish on this lake before. Been spending most my time in lower and middle whitefish. Haven’t been up to upper white fish yet. Hopefully the weather will stay quiet and fishing continue to improve.

    The only problem I have with the Pfleuger President is it's bulkiness. Could just be that my walleye rods are too light for it. My last rod purchase a few years ago was a Fenwick 6-1/2' Elite Tec walleye jigging rod and I put a Pfleuger Supreme 25x on it and that balanced out real nice. My other rod is a 6-1/2' St. Croix Eyecon spinning rod with a Pfleuger Trion reel. I don't recall which model capacity it is but it is very similar to the President but lower quality. After using my Fenwick I find the Trion to add too much bulk to the rod taking it out of balance. The Trion is about worn out so now I'm considering a new one and will probably favor the Supreme 25x for that one as well. The thing to remember is the model name isn't all there is. The President is a very good series and there are quite a number of them to choose from with differing line capacities and reel weights. Maybe I haven't looked at the right one myself but my experience with the Supreme has been very good.

    I agree! I have 10-12 of the Pflueger presidents. They are smooth and seem to hold up well. I have different sizes and also use them on the ice. Good quality with a reasonable price.

    I now have pfleuger presidents on several rodds. They are a great reel for the money!

    Got out July 26th and 27th. Took note that the wind had been consistently pushing in from the NW. Targeted a southeast inside turn to capitalize on the wind push. Fished the toe of the break (relatively soft break, not something you may target as structure) at 23'. Pulled hammered brass crawler harness, with simple in-line sinker at ~0.7mph. Sand/gravel bottom (occasional mud pocket). Pretty soft but active bite. Fish caught almost every pass but soft bite. First fished from ~7:30 to 8:30PM on 26th. Caught ~10 with 50% in 13 to 14" range and the rest less than 12". Kept none. On the 27th the wind was still holding the same bearing. Went from 10:30AM to 12:30 with same approach and as good or better results. Kept four of five 13-14" keepers for shore lunch. Lesson: This was in my opinion not a bottom material (mud vs. sand) or structure (reef, sharp break, hole, etc.) oriented bite but purely attributable to wind direction. If you get a day or more of consistent wind direction, look at your map and think about where bait and other fish may be blown in.

    I was at Vermilion Falls a week ago today and the water flow was unreal.

    Where is a good shoreline to fish on the St. Croix?

    After family shopping today, the son in law needed to wet a line so we dragged the Lund out to hit up a lake we ice fished a couple times last winter. Fish were more stubborn than I expected. But we picked up enough bass and pike to keep our interest. At least I had someone else to snap a photo of my second bass of the day, a 19. This largie is 2 inches shorter than that smallie from the morning.
