Went out today on a lake in the north metro in search of some big bluegills. I found a spot in 7-9 ft of water that was just full of nice green weeds. Had to use the low power mode on my FL20. I drilled one hole, dropped my flasher down, and immediatly caught an 8.5 inch gill, so I grabbed the auger and drilled maybe 20 holes. I used a blue marmooshka tipped with either Gulp! waxies or red and white maggots. My girlfried used my last lindy pounder in glow/green tipped with red and white maggots and a slip bobber. We had to hole hop a little after a few fish out of each hole but the bite was really consistant. We fished for about an hour and a half and came home with 16 gills between 8.5 and 9.25 and realeased another 10 or so. All in all it was a great day to be out.

Today i fished the same area. When I showed up there was about 15 people right on top of where I fished yesterday. They must have been watching from a distance yesterday. I fished with my Dad for about an hour and we caught 10 that were between 8.5 and 9.25 again. We caught around three times that many that were smaller as well. Today the blue marmooska tipped with red spikes was what worked, along with a power noodle rod, for the light biters. Another good day on the ice, just not as productive as yesterday.

I got out today and went to a spot I tried during the week with a bunch of perch for my efforts. I moved 3 more times with nothing of any size to show for my efforts until the last spot. I drilled along a weedline on an inside turn that was basically creating a pocket in 8ft of water. Thats where I found the bigger bluegills. Berkley gulp! waxies in natural and a pink and white fatboy was the ticket today. The fish werent agressive as I really needed to barely quiver my rod. Things should start to heat up in the next few weeks with the warmer temps on the way.

I went out today and fished for a little over an hour. I didnt mark alot of fish but the ones I did I caught. I used a kodiak jig tipped with red spikes and fished 5-7ft of water in the weeds. I caught about 10 thick bluegills and average size was between 8.5 and 9". These warmer temps we have coming up shuld put the fish into high gear.

I still cant get a dang 10" out of that lake. I have 2 buddies that have gotten 5 fish over 10". Those bigger fish are so picky though. You need everything perfect. When the water was clear a month ago i would site fish them and with the slightest bit of line twist they were just negative. I would think that they would all start to pour into the shallows soon.

      I might be able to make a run or two if needed with my truck.  Hopefully we don't get dumped on and get a few warm sunny days to get this stuff to settle a bit.

      I agree. Was thinking about doing this. My issue is that it's customer service. What if it wasn't that easy of a fix and customer service was this way. Haven't had these issues with shimano or pflueger for half the price.

      Some pockets of slush on the east end. Only came upon one spot that covered a large area, most were small spots.  Walking on the lake was not to bad, snow is light and fluffy.  I didn’t see anything that would stop me, but not sure how far of a trek you have.

      How is the snowpack and slush looking these days? I'm looking to walk into my place on the west end one of these weekends but don't want to make the trek in knee-deep powder or thigh-deep slush!

      That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.

      As soon as humanely possible. We have a seasonal cabin that we use year-round, an no road access. Therefore like PSU, we are bound by the ice-out to determine our first open water trip. If I had road access, it would likely be determined by other factors such as snow on the driveway, etc.   If you have plumbing pipes, that is another concern. We haul in our water so I don't have to worry about pipes bursting. About six years ago, I did hook up my lake pump at opener at left it filled with water. When I came back for Memorial Day, the iron housing had cracked due to water freezing.   My general advice is to not avoid the in-between times. They are often the best. Less people are around, you get to see the land and the lake change, when the ice goes out you get to see eagles and other scavengers pick up all the floating winter-kill fish, green starts popping up everywhere, etc. It's a fun time to be in the woods and around the lake. Canoeing through ice or boating through black ice is always a hoot as well!
