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.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.
