working around the islands have always been good to me, otherwise the hole out in front of the resort has always been good, girlfriend has a cabin at Sunset resort, so we fish it often other wise, i have picked some walleyes on accident fishing dummers bay, usually i fish bass though, they are a lot of fun. jigs, and lindy rigs with gold spinners have worked for me, worst come to worst try the big pond.

I was out on Sat. Temp was 51 in the bay to the west. All that we caught were small sunnies and 1 crappie.

The opener should be good even though the temps are not going to be that high. I have a couple of spots where i think the crappies might be hiding. also i have to watch out for the dogfish

My dad and I used to use the bow-spear for dogfish in the shallows on a lake nearby. It was a lot of fun. I think we are going to start on FI trolling crankbaits because I was unable to get up and scout. We will sure to be getting some northerns at least that way!

We were fishing the bay to the left of the access. That is where the water temp was 51. Don't think it will change much this week.

JVinny, were you fishing way back in the bay, or outside the bay. Also where was the temp 51 degrees? thanks

We were very successful this weekend at our attempt to only catch hamerhandles and rock bass. Had a little trouble finding the walleyes.

didnt spend much time fishing walleyes because of a bad wind but we got into some crappies and northerns. Also caught many bonus largemouth. My walleye hole didnt produce the numbers it should have. I will be up next weekend and with the higher tems the fish should start to turn on more.

Was out on FI Saturday but couldnt go out sunday cause of the wind. We tried walleyes on Johnsons point, but didnt have any luck. We fished crappies for a while and caught 5, all were 12" and bigger. Had a lot of other action though. The bass kept us busy. I think next weekend the crappies will hit prime time.

Farm holds very few nice crappies like it use to. post spots on the net will only hurt that lake even more.

he could be bsing us all on the lake. I have fished the lake many times and the only place that i have ever caught crappies is next to the church camp petersons bay is amazing for bass though. With all the reeds and deep drops the bass love that spot.Just tie on either a white spinnerbait or white plastic worm and pitch it into the weeds and you will get fish. Plus added northern

Farm holds nice Crappies, but the key word is they are SCATTERED.

I fished the Cabela's Crappie tourney a few years ago out there. I found Crappies in about 6 different spots with the biggest ones being about 13.5 inches.

We did well enough to take 2nd place in the pro division of that tourney, but I have not been back to that lake since.

Farm holds a good population of huge Rockbass as we found out, and they are more then easy to catch this time of year. Not the best table fair though.

Good fishing,

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
