The walleye bite is still going but not on fire as in the previous couple of months. Our launch went out on friday from 6-10 p.m. and got 14 walleyes. kept 12 eyes' and 2 big perch. we fished just north/east of hennipen island in 28 fow. we did end up moving out of there and heasing out to hawkbill reef and getting the rest. the best rig was accually a crawler under a bobber with a 1/16 ounce yellow jig with a green eye. other launches around the lake did about the same. it was a pretty slow bite on friday. On saturday i had another launch go out from 6-10 p.m. we boated 13 walleyes and kept nine. biggest was a 21.75" walleye. we also got a 21.5 incher too. otherwise all the eyes' that we kept were inbetween 13"-14.5". we also kept 4 perch inbetween 12"-14". this time most the eyes' came on leeches under a bobber. we fished on popes,graveyard,2 mile,and some humps on the north west side of hennipen island. it was a slow bite for ud but another launch that went out from our place landed 39 walleyes.

Muskie- the muskie bite is still to get going. lots of people going out and not even seeing a fish. Steve Sapinaiak with Preditor guide service had a client land a 53" ski' on wednesday morning. that is the last fish that his outfit has landed. in two days they have only raised 2 fish. very slow. we need the water temp is cool down just a little. with the temp. being so high these big fish are very delicate in the water and are more prone to not making it after a long hard fight. i reccommend that if you do catch one of these fish take the hooks out in the water and dont take the fish out of the water. if you must take a picture please leave the fish in the net and take a couple like that. we dont want these big girls floating.

Pike- the pike bite is picking up. not many huge ones being caught. deeper water is proving itself to be the best right now with such a high surface temp. spoons and small bucktails are working as of late.

Smallmouth- Bite is going pretty strong. good places to start are off of hawkbill point. the bass are moving deeper into 8-10 fow. on the rock reefs. put on a tube or shad rap. and expect to catch a few of them.

tight lines everyone and i will post another update next weekend

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
