Well last night I tried to launch my boat at the new landing on Howard Lake. The landing was to shallow to get my boat off the trailer. I had my front tires in the water so they were the only thing left on the concrete slab and I still couldn't get it off. It is a pretty nice landing but I think that they need to dig it out a little. Last year I had pull a guy out that had backed his front tires off the concrete into the sand. Real flat landing.
I am planning on hitting Pulaski, Rock and Maple this weekend to try to track down some slabs. The water temp at the landing on Howard was 51 degrees.

I'll be out this weekend sometime if it doesn't rain. Water temps look like they are warming up. It was 45 degrees last time I was out and the fishing was slow.

Which access is best on Clearwater? I would like to head out and try to find some crappies but I have spent very little time on this lake? Is the water real low where I need to watch out for knocking my lower unit off in spots? Any help would be great. I will pick up a map. Any bays better than others?

The water on clearwater is low right now . It is common for a lower unit to be tore up on it . I will say this thou you bust up your boat .9 times out of 10 you will know remember it grin.gif.. the recent rain we got did hepl some , could use quite a bit more .

As for the launchs,, i would say a newbie should use the BoBs bay landing. Puts you right in on the main lake. The Black Pool Landing you have to drive though narrow spot.

A number of years ago a buddy picked up a Brand new boat and wanted to have me with him breaking it in on clearwater since i live on it .He wanted to do it all in one afternoon . In the end while doing approx 64mph i Said to him " Dont do anything at all and just look over the side of the boat" .. He Did And then and then went to slow down .I yelled at him " Speed Back up before you hit!!!" The spot is about 3 feet deep and not real big. I did have him across it many times before the full bore ride. I just never told him to look down grin.gif hahah

Hey Duckbill...Pulaski's access is plenty deep...it's just in poor shape, due to the ice heaving up onto shore. (Pushed some of the concrete slabs up). There are two ramps, side-by-side (with a dock in between, that is half submerged!)...last week the crappies weren't biting, but then again, the cold snap caused that. I imagine this weekend should be better, however a new front is moving in tonight! (Chance of rain tomorrow and Sunday)

I found them on Pulaski on Saturday afternoon. A lot of small ones though. There were plenty of boats too.

Most Wright & Meeker cty lakes are producing panfish right now! I absolutely love this time of year. smile.gif Nav

ps. The smaller lakes can be real sleepers, BUT please practice C&R. Keep a few and toss back the rest. wink.gif

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      Tom, good thoughts now we need good weather!

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.

      I heard back from Michael Schwanke a guide working out of Crane Lake that I have known for several years. I told him we are heading up on May 17th. He said it will be close real close. I depends on the night temps need to remain over freezing.....we will keep fingers crossed for a week or two and then decide what to do.
