How are the waters up in on the pond around this time?

Recommended Posts

I would like to take me and the gf fishing on the pond sometime later this month or October. I have heard how nasty the winds can make it and I'm wodering if I will be able to do some night fishing for eyes with an old school 70's alumnium boat with a 40hp on the back? From what I have been reading the fish are starting to come shallow, just wondering if I can hit some ok spots with at 16ft'er on the big pond? Any help/tips/advice welcomed.

it all depends on the weather the day/night you are here. today is much better for a 16 footer than yesterday. depending on where you are going to fish and wind direction, you might have to change plans and fish on the other side of the lake to stay out of the wind..... and yes it is that time of the year that the walleye move in shallow and can be had trolling in 3 to 10 feet of water after dark...................tom fellegy

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
