Just curious how the bite is midlake around the island. Was out about 3 weeks ago fishing in about 14fow and the fishing was great. My brother caught a 15lb northern with an 8inch shiner, what a beaut. Any reports on crappies/sunnies?

Word is you can still get fish out there. Got a report from a friend that was out last Friday evening...said the crappies didn't start going good for him until about 7pm...then he was able to weed thru them and go home with a nice batch for dinner for his wife and kids. He said he got a lot of small sunfish before dark....he was disappointed there wasn't more nice sunfish in the mix but probably just his location...sometimes you can just move a little bit and get in an area where the little tikes don't beat the bigger ones to the bait.

I was just out there recently and got a ton of crappies and sunnies after dark. Bite picked up around 6ish and went strong til 10. Had a crappie on average every 7-8 minutes. Caught a 22 inch walleye as well. Only caught three fish on minnows everything else, including walleye, was on a fiska jig with two waxies. After the waxies ran out I still caught a bunch on power spikes. If I didn't get bit for a few minutes I'd pull up my offering and re-charge the glow and after returning to the water the fish would immediately come back and usually inhale it. I was out fishing 16FOW in what I call a mid-lake area. Wasn't anyone else really near me. Good weeds beneath that spot though.

      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?

      Ok..I got it wired directly to the motor battery. 12.44 bolts to the plug. Good. Unit powers on like normal. All is well until I get it on the water. Only question.. since there's power going non stop to that plug. Do I risk draining the battery? I take the unit off when I trailer the boat. 12.44 volts

      I'd be surprised if the lake is entirely open by Opener. I almost needed at auger extension eight days ago when I was up there.
