They are out about 3 miles right now. They are very close to where they were fishing at the beginning of last year.

Thx for the info WW Bartender!!!

Flag up - I've never been up early so I won't be able to help you out, if I remember right, they were catching them in 11' to 13' last year early.
Good luck!!!

We put a house out yesterday, 10 inches of ice where we put it. The fishing has still been a little slow, but with this cold weather it should not be too long before we can start driving out.

I've been out fishing in Dec. the last couple of years and it's a little different than later in the year. Fish are closer to the bottom generally and don't come as far up(aggressive) to hit the bait. And yes fishing is generally slower til later in Feb. It can still be good though and is worth the trip. If you can move around a bit before dark that will sometimes pay off. If you catch a couple by 4:00 pm or so , chances are good you'll do o.k. later on

      About the Rusties... I thought I posted this but it must have gone away with the server glitch.  Rusties have made it through oak narrows and are marching west. To the best of my knowledge they haven't gotten as far as Wakemup so Norwegian and HeadOlakes are still free of them.  When they get to us, I have my crab boil, trap, and old bay ready.  I figured trapping them east and importing them west might get me in trouble.   I can wait.

      Me too, going up for the week of July 4th for cabin projects and fishing and maybe some trail riding on the SxS. Oh, maybe some R&R and Coors Light too.

      I also have a ICIH, with a loud ac unit, would like to see a thermostat for it but most of time time I have house plugged into 120 volt outlet.

      Wow - 7 days of posts gone.  Seems like more than that.  Oh-well.  My next trip is a week and a half away.

      Per Rick on HSO they switched to a new server. Had a glitch in the database that lost a couple days of posts on HSO and FM

      Good luck fishing. It's a great way to spend retirement!

      Does anyone know where the more recent posts have gone? There were some posts from earlier in the week. BTW, not seeing any more floating dead minnows.....

      I had my last official guide trip Monday and Tuesday and we fished for Smallmouth bass. It was one of my regulars that I have fished with for over 10 years. George and I have caught 100's of Smallies over the years and this year was no different. We boated around 65 bass in two days in less than perfect conditions. Most were on topwater baits of one kind or another and the rest were taken on crank baits. I wasn't able to fish to much so George caught most of the fish. I know I will miss guiding and the friends I have made over the years. I guess I'll just have to fish more to get over all the time spent guiding.   Have a great season everybody.
