Was acually going to post one today but you guys beat me to it. Have been going out on wed. and sundays and been catching fish but for size not much to speak of. Last sunday fished whispering bay from noon to 3 and cauht a few sunnies and no crappies which surprised me cause couldn't catch a sunnie the week before and had nothin but craps. But we moved to the main lake for some eyes (which havent been productive at all this year) and got 1 10incher and crappies for the rest of the night. did manage to take 8-9 crappies home biggest being shy of 10in smallest being 8in. Hope this may help wink

Hit my main "eye" spot a week ago that has always held fish in the past and got blanked except for one dink and a couple perch. Not sure what the deal is.

I hosted a huge get together out there on Saturday. We had between 150 and 200 people out there, mostly kids. Shallow was the key to catching fish. We were after bluegills as they provide good action for the kids. Anyone fishing deeper than 8 fow struggled to catch fish, while those fishing 6 or less caught a bunch of bluegills. There were some bass and pike caught along with a walleye about 11" long.

Good thing it snowed for ya on friday, otherwise it would have been a giant ice rink.

I was out on Friday before the snow started and I was pretty worried. It ended up being pretty nice, but it was still slippery. Plenty of falls, but there was a bit of padding at least.

was out there on saturday and caught 3 walleye in 13-22ft all were about 12 inches as well as a handful of greedy fat perch. Had a few nice eyes in my hole but they did not make it onto the ice. Pretty frustrating staring at the fish but not being able to hold them... One must have been at least 4 pounds... also once the walleye bite started i must have missed about 8 or so bites which did not make me happy since i normally have a great bite to hook-up ratio. All in all another fun day out there.

      I’m really hoping to make it up there on Saturday. Might try a couple different spots, pending success rate.

      Also depends on if your married or not, or want to stay that way! 😄  At my buddies old place since he had an out house we would just bring water and start using it when we could get the heat up with a fire place and a few elc, heaters as to not die. Then we were good! 😉

      Hello everyone,    I know I'm new to this website, but I've been fishing for a while now. A few years ago I picked up a Black Betty 6061 for ice fishing and I bent the handle trying to put it into a Frabil hard case on an exceptionally cold day (dumb me). I wrote a few emails to 13 Fishing/called 5 times and explained the situation and they told me I would have to pay for my parts. I said that was fine because it was my fault (even though I thought the handle should be a little sturdier).   Flash forward a 2 weeks later and I have my new handle. I took the old handle off and put the new one on, but the retaining screw that holds the washer for the nut in place wouldn't fit. The new handle 13 Fishing sent to me has a screw hole tapped too small. I called 13 and they were not aware of a screw size change. I asked them to send me a screw that would fit the handle and they said okay. 2 Weeks later, no screw. I called them again and explained that I had been over a month without this reel operational and no one had sent anything. I told them that I had a fishing trip coming up in the next two days and they could either overnight the screw to me or send it to the location I was going to be fishing. They said they would send it and it didn't come before the trip, nor did it come after the trip I just came back from.    They either sent me the wrong handle that doesn't fit my old BB, or they changed the dimensions of their design. I'm just trying to get my reel operational and it seems like such an easy thing. I'm probably going to go down to the store and just grab a small screw that will fit, but it seemed too easy for 13 Fishing to send me the part. How should I deal with 13 Fishing now? Has anyone else dealt with this issue before? I really liked 13 Fishing's gear, but if this is what happens when something goes wrong, I may end up turning elsewhere for the $$.

      I always use a dead stick next to a jigging hole.  The water is clear so you can get pretty high off the bottom to bring them in and then lower it to them.  Red hook on the dead stick during the day and anything glow after dark if you want but I use pink.  I usually use fat heads or rainbow with good success.  My go to is a pink and blue rattle spoon or red.  Just off of structure during the day with a nice easy move of 15 feet or so to the top of the structure morning or night.

      Now it sounds like they’re shooting for October. Won’t be possible by fishing opener

      You have no idea how I suck at electronics!

      Depends on the year.  Typically early May.   Some years you can get away with earlier....

      You are welcome Icehawk. I want some great fishermen there to teach and pass on knowledge. I also want to showcase the friendships that can be made here.

      It would be great if he is right.   Now, if he is wrong......   Still need to stop deer farms from spreading this disease.

      GPS!  Helping my son move into a new house this Sat or that sounds like something to try. Didn't really want to spend my last weekend of Walleye season lifting craap up and down stairs! 😟  Good Luck.
