bayport crappies have been hit and miss. did well on them a week ago (xmas day)... this past weekend not many crappies.. although they appeared (on vex) to be down there... did get a few walleyes, saugers, and silvers. my buddy was out yesterday morning.. got a half dozen nice crappies. from what i take... you just have to be there at the right time... so not hot... but not bad either.

someone was smoking newport cigerettes on my spot.

just go off the phone with my ol'man... he was down there this morning... he said it was terrible... same thing... he said he could see them down there... not biting though... perhaps this little cold front and rise in pressure turn them off again. man... they can be finacky. sorrow for the bunk report... i still might try it this afternoon if i can sneak out of work early.

We were out Sunday. Fished the WI side, 40' of water. One 14.5" walleye. Pushed it down the hole only to see it later under the ice, dead. Enough to make a guy cry. I saw a few other dead shorties under the ice too and a few crappies. Not many fish being caught while I was there. Not much on the point, either.

Went down by North Hudson today from 1pm to 6:30 pm.Darn slow.Only caught one decent sauger and a walleye the size of a cigar.I was in 34' of water until about 4 pm and then I moved in to some holes I drilled in 20' earlier.Saw some fish but they weren't taking much.Good Luck Fishing!!!

Hey, Sinker.... Where do you go on in N Hudson? Do you fish in the hole in front the little lake there? I usually fish out of Bayport but would like to try some other spots!

Sturgeon46, I get on at the landing you see all the vehicles by.South-east of the Bayport access.I usually go north about 1/3 of the way to the group of shacks you see on the WI. side.It drops off quickly from shore and it's basically 34' to 38' of water.I don't bring home buckets full but I usually can get a few crappies and saugers.Walleyes are running small.How are you doing for walleyes over there?Do you fish off of that point by the beach?Keep in touch.Good Luck Fishing!!!

Thanks, sinker. That's where I fish too - both sides. I was thinking you might fish closer to Hudson. I've been curious what fishing might be like in the quiet areas on the east side.

Sturgeon46,the farthest I've fished to the south on ice is where you can see a small group of shacks down by the black railroad bridge.They'll look like dots from the Bayport area.From there north to the landing where everyone gets on I've caught some big crappies.My daughter caught the biggest one I've seen down there,almost 15",a few years ago.Are you or anyone else doing anything on walleyes?Good Luck Fishing!!!

I'ts been slow for me on the walleyes. I only get out on weekends when traffic is highest and with no snow, I'm convinced the fish are spooked by the time I get at them. I fish with my 16 yr old son and I can't get him out of the sack to fish the early AM so we go in the afternoon after everyone has already stomped and punched holes all over. I'm going to move away from the crowd next time and see what I find. I'll let you know.

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.

      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.

      Thanks Borch - Star Island looks really interesting and Cass is a lake I've always meant to get to, but never have. Have you ever fished Windigo?  I'm assuming the only way to do it would be to fish from shore or carry in a canoe or kayak.  Sure would be interesting to fish on a lake within a lake.
