I was fishing in about 16' for crappies then moved to about 14' for sunfish. Fish bit very well and so I tried different lures all with success.

Fisherman 66, sounds like you had a great day. I took my 6 year old out to North Center on 12/26. We set up on the south side. Near the 34' hole. Fished in 27' and only got six crappies in 3 hours. When the fish came, they were at aboout 18 to 23 feet. I think we should have set up in around 20' or so of water. Any suggestions? The kids (three of them under 7)love to fish but get boared quikly with out action.

Thanks,

Lights

I fished it sunday and did pretty good on the sunnies, 4 crappies and a 16" bass. fished in about 10 ft of water. what are the people catching in the huge ice shack city near that main island? i just find my own place far away from people n always do good on numbers just not always on size. i found about 11" of ice out there, most people were driving on all the area lakes which was suprising but i guess its decent ice for smaller vehicles.

Move north just south of Doctors Island. The crappies are thick there and should show up on a locator. Small minnows and I do mean small is one of the keys to catching fish. Good Luck Lights!

Fisherman 66, you are very kind with your info. If you see a green eskimo, babe winkelman style, out there it might be me. I'll gladly move if i'm on your hotspot. Thanks again!

fisherman 66, Thanks for the info. If you ever see a purple Otter Lodge, one bald 35 year old in a black NWA 3/4 lenght jacket chasing some kids. laugh.gif Thats me and you will know why I am bald grin.gif Just kiddin there good kids. Stop by and say hi.

PS. Is there a closer access to that end of the lake? I'm still walking out. I will not put the kids in danger (driving out). The wife would kill me if I did.

Thanks,

Mark

      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.
