Was out from 3-6 today, measured 10-11 inches where we were. Didn't measure other areas but there were several cars and light trucks out. My buddy caught 1 9.5" crappie and a 16" eye. I came home empty handed. Marked quite a few fish early then tapered off fast around dark.

I was out in the new fish trap yukon, finally got set up about 4, kept 3 crappies & a 19" eye that came on a tip-up in 12' of water, with a JB-Gemneye, pink/glow. Crappies were on neon glow jigs, sweedish pimple, and a buckshot spoon with a minnow-head. Be back out early all day, come say hi, I'll have blue ice-armor in a fish trap yukon. Probly something on the grill 2 grin.gif

Just got home, shoulda brought the net 2day! Got out late & missed the morning rush, so we HAD 2 capitalize on the evening bite. Went serching 4 pannies during the mid-day, caught a few & 4sure got my exercise in! Set up WAY WAY WAY away from the main group in 9fow, & after chasing dogs that stole the "grill fair" for the day, we were set up. First bite was a tip-up on a Gemneye, and i missed it. Second was my buddy on a bobber which was an eye that he lost in the hole. Then down went my bobber, hooked it, then just like my buddies came off in the hole. Another eye. Then up went the flag again, 10ft of line & no minnow. So over all there are fish in the area, but I dont know what I have 2 do 2 get fish on the ice, frustrating day, espeacially when you know that your loosing an eater almost every time. Oh 4got 2 mention, had a BIG red bar move up on a Buckshot, and BANG! A 36" slimeball, which of course got my Buckshot in the hole mad.gifblush.gif

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.
