Made it out this evening to an area body of water that is realitivly unknown except to the people who live right near it. Ty, you know which one I am referring to. Anyway, decided to do something I hadn't done yet this year and target bass only, I know that there are some nice ones in there and I needed to scratch my fishing itch a little. In about two hours of fishing with a skitter pop and a worm, I landed about 24 bass ranging in size from 8" up to 14", wish I had decided to bring the camera, oh well. It was a great night as far as weather, so with winter coming down on us, I figured I better get in what I could, and it was good. Nothing like seeing a boiling wake coming after your topwater lure!! grin.gif

it's always a blast seeing that boil turn into a lm and smashing the topwaters! I've been getting decent action on power grubs 2-3" various colors, even caught a few nice ones using a powerbait 6" lizard, twitched across the bottom. took a tip from Sledneck , and started rigging them using o-rings, which eliminates the need to thread the hook into the baits, which prolong the life of your baits and hard earned cash!

Another worm-saving tip for bass plastics users is to tighten a small wire tie around the middle of a senko before wacky-rigging it. Then put the hook just under the wire tie. The bait will probably last you at least one outing.

Topwater bass fishing is hands down my favorite way to target them. Nice work bucko. It's hard to try something new as it takes awhile to build confidence in each and every aspect of fishing. Kudos for giving something new a chance and it payed off.

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.

      This is great! I’ve never heard of this either Skunked, thanks for sharing- will give it a shot this summer!

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.
