I'm going to be heading out either tonight or tomorrow to Duck Lake for the first time and I was wondering if anybody had any tips on bait, I usually just get a scoop of minnows and some wax worms, but thought I would check to see what has been good recently, thanks!

I used waxies and larva on sunday and it worked well for the fish even though they were small. The sunnies averaged around 5 1/2 inches and the crappies around 7 inches but had non stop action. The bite was the same if it was waxies or larva. Minnows did pull slightly bigger fish but the constant rebaiting because of the smaller fish made the choice easier. The camera was a blast to use.

Duck has been great for panfish. They're not the biggest fish in the world but its a lot of fun. I've been using two lines, one with crappie minnows and one with wax worms. The fish seem to be in the deepest part of the lake 20+ feet of water (or where all the houses are!). I've been out in the evenings mostly and they seem to bite from when I get out there til about 9:30. Even right after that cold snap they were biting, slower but still good. Hope you catch a bunch, good luck!!!

Actually, I forgot to include that I was catching them on plastics as fast as my son was catching them with meat.

I don't think it matters out there.

Thanks for the tips guys I just got back and after 2 hours I had caught about 10 crappies and half dozen sunnies, what a great time. Had one crappie over 10 and a fat pumpkinseed but not much else for size. Would have fished longer but it just got too cold w/o a heater! Waxies worked great, thanks for the help!

      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.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      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?
