Been fishing lakes that i Have fished many times in the past, with no luck. Fished anywhere from 12 to 30 fow, and have not been seeing anything on graph. Is anyone else having the same luck?

It's been a good year for me this year...A lot of gills and slabs.

Been having to work an awful lot for what we’ve been getting.  I’ve had a couple highlight days but a tougher than average winter for me too.  

Just keep your head up and keep working it.  Maybe try some lakes you haven’t fished in a while, or ever.  You could stumble onto something good.  Or at least be learning new water.

Been a brutal hard water season for me as well, figured it was a continuation of my fall fishing luck.

Begining to think it's going too be a really bad year.  Couples days ago was out, could not get anything to bite, switched up lures half dozen times. Did not help

Surface Tension

 Made it out to the Cotton area for crappies.   Fished over 24' of water and found most fish suspended 6-12 under the ice.
Finicky bite but managed enough for a good meal.  Tungsten jigs tipped with waxie or minnow head. Dead sticks w/crappie minnows worked too.   Cross country travel on most lakes would be dicey with an ATV,  snowmobiles are golden.  Expect to high step it if your on foot with layers of slush, crust, and power.

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.

      Bass.   It’s what I find myself fishing for the most. I can fish for em anywhere and there are SO many different ways to target them.  Anything from finessing to big, bold bites and big hooksets.  Even if you’re not catching much you can at least entertain yourself with precise casting practice for certain presentations.
