don't venture out towards the middle... the western shore has pretty decent ice.

I was out today from 2 - 5 and the fish seemed to be active around 15 - 18 ft. The tip-ups were pretty inactive we were using medium suckers. I jigged with crappie minnows for walters and jumbo's but only pulled up small perch. Ill try farther in tomorow.. Let you know how it goes.

Hey Guys. Was just wondering if you guys just park your cars along the road right along the lake and pull your stuff out from there or do you have to park by the access? I just moved into a place close to Harriet and it looks like a fun lake to try. Can you just walk on the lake from anywhere? Thanks for the help and good luck out there.

You can park along the road, hours are from 6 a.m. until 10 p.m., and just carry your stuff across the street. To park in the lots, you need a permit; the lot on the north end of Calhoun has a pay box, as does the one at the beach on Nokomis. I'm don't know about Harriet.

Worked it this afternoon into early evening on the West side. Walleye was the target.

The action was:

S L O W...

I did have a couple flags go off, but I'm pretty sure it was those mangy perch yanking my fathead. Flag up, spindle spinning slowly, hook "set", no weight and fathead comes up no worse for wear. The usual perch chatter near the bottom on the Flasher. Yeah, there could have been some 'eye's down there sure, but it didn't matter 'cause nobody was liking what I had to offer them.

Oh well, it was a nice evening to angle.

I did get my C.O. license check out of the way for the year...so I got that going for me grin.gif.

      I fished with a guide on the Detroit River two weeks ago who had the new Panoptix unit ($4000 to get setup).  Incredible what you could see as it is a live image.  Have to say it can frustrate the hell out of you sometime,  you see the fish just looking at your bait and then swimming away.  Very cool tech!  You could actually see the fins on the fish in the image and truly judge the size somewhat.

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂

      Heading up to the river in the morning trying to decide if I should fish up the river or out if wheelers.

      Sure wish we would get a strong enough east wind to pile the ice on shore. Lot of ice out there and it will take a long time if it has to all melt.
