trucks were out this weekend (mine included) just drive slow and give one another space. measured 17-18 inches of clear ice with 3 inches of crud ice on top. crappies really slowed compared to friday am. managed plenty of little ones but only 6 keeper crappies and 4 borderline perch in 3.5 hrs. which is just enough to feed me and the two little guys. Didn't do as much moving around to stay on the fish this time thus the perch in the bucket. hope to get out this week if the mrs. does'nt raise to much of a fuss about three trips in a week. anyone have tips on hook sets using a spring bobber, i seem to be only averaging about 60%. this is my first year trying them and wondering if anyone has any tips/suggestions.

Crewdog, I am glad to hear that the bite continues. I will be home soon for spring break and I plan on fishing Rush a lot that week. Make sure your rod has plenty of backbone behind the spring bobber. My crappie noodle rod does hot have a lot of back bone, so I have to swing about 6 feet to set the hook. Another idea is to use flourocarbon or fireline. This stuff has very slow stretch and you can get a good hook set. Downsizing the jig can help in hooking up too.

thanks for the tip about lines. Can't really downsize smaller than the fiskas lures i've been using. i've been trying to use light line with the small lures. might have to try the 1 lbs fireline. good luck next week.

I was out this afternoon from 9:00 till 2:30 and had little luck, just a few small perch and sunnys. I don't think I marked even one crappie in the normal areas I fish. I wonder if they tend to biteing in the evening or if they have left thier typical winter spots. Anybody have any thought

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?

      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
