Well first of all I would say in the last 2 weeks the weather has been nothing short of Sh!tty. Rain, clouds. Warmer days colder days. You could not ask for more inconsistant weather. I wouldn't give up. For walleyes I would try the two big points and a couple of the bars on the west side of the lake. For panfish I would try some of the reedy areas to the north of the lake. But mostly I would wait for the weather to cooperate a bit. WBL is a harder lakes in my opinion.

Yeah the weather has stunk but it is alot easier to get on that lake with the weather that way LOL

Do you know the weedline depth I have found it mainly at 10-12 feet does this sound correct ?

thanks for the tips

It depends on what weeds and bottom content but there are definately weeds to 17/18 feet. I'd start your walleye quest in 17-21 feet lindy riggin female fatheads. The leech bite has started but minnows seem the best bet still.

I haven't been out on WBL yet, but I have always had success fishing walleyes along the weedline in Birchwood this time of year (while the lilacs are still blooming). Try slow trolling a floating jighead with a crawler along the weedline. I will follow the weedline until it hits about 14 feet...then the walleyes dissapear to their summer haunts.

I went out for 4 hours yesterday (nice day finally)... was going for pike.. steel leader, spoons and mepps mainly. Caught two bass on the mepps so I switched to spoons. Managed only 1 really scrawny pike. Fished from 5 feet all the way to 20 feet. Was amazed at the numbers of fish in deep water.. finder just LOADED with arches.. no idea what those were.. whatever.. they weren't hungry!

I was out yesterday as well and caught everything the lake has to offer except muskies and walleyes. Caught the biggest crappie I have ever seen (it's still swimmin') some 9" perch, a rock bass, two LMB, some sunnies and snagged two northerns in the belly. Yesterday chartruse seemed to be the color for me with fatheads. Most where caught in 14 fow.

(Contact US Regarding This Word), what part of the lake where you on?

Live bait eh? I should have brought some.

1- along the island N/launch side 2- NE side near the huge rock shore/fireplace house 3- SW shoreine north of VFW

Used lures only. I should have brought some minnows.. saw a boat catching lots of crappies with bobbers while we were casting.

How about you? Where did you focus. Was a beautiful day though! Just fun to be out! Cold/windy weather coming back sooon..

      Heading up to crane Lake area. How are conditions and any tips / pointers?

      Yes indeed. We actually bought it together. We wedged the pontoon boat into that lift last fall and hoisted it out of the water. Unfortunately the water came up so much this spring, the pontoon couldn't float with the rising levels. There wasn't much that we could do opening weekend except wait for the water to drop and then assess the damage. It's mainly a garbage hauler so no big loss for a $500 boat/motor.

      I forgot to post this but I got a jake during season B north of Princeton on some private land.  I had been hunting this flock of birds for 3 seasons now.  I hear and/or see them every day, but simply could not get a legal bearded turkey to come within range.  Finally, a hen came walking out with a jake and I dusted the jake on the 4th day of my hunt.  There's plenty of birds there, including several mature toms, so I intend to keep hunting there in the future as long as I can obtain permission.  The weather was downright terrible.  I had one nice morning of sunshine and then it was windy, rainy, and raw for days.  Saturday morning even produced a heavy summer-type down pour.  I was so thankful to be hunting in a blind.  I also saw a fair amount of other wildlife in four days, including deer, pheasants, a pair of raccoons, and a coyote.

      I have questions about the following hypothetical. Buy used boat and trailer from Iowa Resident. Would need to transfer, and I have not done before. Duck boat, may occasionally fish out of it. Technically 15'11 1/2" long. Will have motor. Do I need a title? Does it need registration?   Same for trailer. Need a title? Need Registration? License Plate?   Thank you for any help.

      I realize it's only been 2 days Raven77, but are you continuing to see the level decreasing?

      Sight fished this one, also got a 19" off a bed with a senko but didn't get a picture because my phone died. Length was 14" for the one in the photo. Haven't been able to get out much recently, but I should be able to go Saturday.
