Boy, those businesses up there have got to be hurting.  Nobody there.  No roads plowed.  Very sad.

Yes they are taking a beating, but as sportsman we  can still go up there and have a burger and beer. Or buy some jigs, bait, or anything.

Dang, I have been watching the bay web cam for a month waiting for the snow to melt down to give it a try. And every time I look at it there is More Snow! :tired::crazy:

@leech I see plenty of bare ice. They don't have much for snow at all. What are you waiting for? ib.jpg.affdfd93e504d4cfa6792d9984e56431.jpg

Program is still trying to up date a down camera. I see it all the time on these Web cams and they get them back up in a few days. But, it's dark now. "Nothing new here to see"  :grin:

leech, should you choose to accept it, ... As always, should you or any of your Force be caught or killed, the Secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This tape will self-destruct in ten seconds. Good luck leech.

Todays sun rays, and 50 degree temps sure knocked the snow down a lot. Quite a few birds on the bare fields coming back home tonight. Great bite prior to that front moving in....5ad6a135991bd_04171819071.thumb.jpg.e0df6bddbc1fbb41064f76aae1dd50be.jpg

A few years ago I had a friend who had a cabin near Izaty's and he said crappies will move into their harbor in the spring.  He claimed that they were never thick in there, but when he caught one, it was big (like 14-16 inches).  It was all private land there so he had to get permission to fish it (from shore).  I know there are some other backwater areas too around Isle Bay that could harbor some.  I have never personally targeted crappies on the big pond and I've never caught one by accident either.  My Grandpa caught one that was 18 inches about 5 years ago before he died, I did see a photo of that one.

I drove along the south shore this morning on my way to a conference.  Cove bay looked to be IN still.  At Wahkon the main part of the bay was IN but the marshy areas are OUT.  All the ice I could see looked pretty rotten.

Oh, and Onamia is OUT.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?! 
    • leech~~
      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
