I put ~ 5 hours into the boat yesterday. Changed the oil, fuel/water separator, batteries in and fully charged. Bow mounts on, floors vacuumed (not that they needed it, but it gave me more to play with). Electronics all back in, a few rods in.

I'm ready! Kelly lake is about 30% open as of right now. Hope to be chasing crappies on Madison or Tetonka by weeks end!

You guys got your boats ready? ...besides PDOGG who has been on the river a few times now...

What lake do you plan on hitting right at ice out?

Mine too. Mounted open water kit for vex, made a wood stand to keep my boat cover more "tent like" instead of the support bars, cleaned the hull with a aluminum cleaner the neighbor had, now looks like new. 3 pulls & it was running laugh

Mine's ready. I was down fishing in Texas about a week ago. All I had to do was pull it back, wash the road grime off, and recharge the batteries.

I'll be out someplace this weekend. (I agree with Muddog - the ice season is about 3 months too long here.)

I'll have mine out sometime before May.....

Thats what happens when you only pay $30 to store it the whole winter, your at the mercy of when the guy with the shed wants to move other stuff. Unless of course the river floods and he is forced to get things out early...

So if anyone has an open seat before then, I'll be willing to tag along!

What did you use for hull cleaner? I have well water here, so when I wash and wax, I still get a somewhat 'dull' look.

I actually thought it was one of many pieces of cattail debrise that was floating by that day, and I did the famous new quote by Mitchel "I think I got one!!"

Don't worry it went back pretty quick but it did slime up his net!! grin

My favorite destinations for pre-spawn, ice-out crappies, in this part of the state, are Frances, Rays, Volney, Tetonka and Madison in no particular order.

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?
    • MikeG3Boat
      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
