Quick report from todays outing.

On the ice(which is at 5 ")from 12:30-4:30 today. We were the first ones out on the ice there because there was no others holes cut anywhere. We fished about 50 feet straight out from the point. We were in 13' of water and visibilty was at least three feet. The Vex showed almost everything at about 11-12 feet. We used waxies on Marmooska, spring bobbers with a tear drop and and Ice Buster bobbers with a Genz grub and waxies. Waxies all day long. Total fish--- 42 sunnies 2 crappies and 2 bass. Biggest fish of the day was a nine and quarter inch crappie. Three guys in a 4600 Clam, pretty crowded. Great to be back!!!

Hi all,

been away for awhile as have been trying to invite some venison "home for dinner". One more outing to IA for old-timey blackpowder hunt but cold snap has me interested in some hardwater solitude.

Dan, which pit are you fishing? nearest Mayo parking lot? If not, I remember CT talking about the 2nd pit being preferable to fish. So would appreciate knowing the best way in there. I have Mayo parking priveledges, so park at the lot and pull across the west end of the S. pit to the next pit? Is there areas to watch out for? (seem to remember CT mentioning springs somewhere)

Thanks in advance for the info

Hi Tom,

We came in from the north east corner. Come in from the bottom of seventh street. There is a poured rock ramp down there. Easy access. Man I think Mayo One must of took off and landed at least ten times today.

Stillhunter,

It's the pit farthest to the north. Although if you have Mayo parking priviledge you can still get out from there. Depending on where you come in at you should go along the edge of one across the south one. There is a feeder creek that dumps into it by that area.

Look for the finger or penninsula there can't miss it.

Thanks Dan,

Have always fished the south one, since was unsure if the other was legal. have had enough excitement to keep going back although it seems as if some of the fish were a bit stunted

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.

      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.
