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.

      Ace (or anyone for that matter), have you been able to pinpoint the conditions that bring the big smallies up shallow in the fall?  Water temp perhaps?  Moon phase? A bait connection?  We saw this happen by chance a couple of years ago, which resulted in some very large smallies coming over the rails.  Didn’t weigh the biggest but my guess was 6lbs+.     Just trying to to see if this shallow movement can be predicted.    Brian

      Deep weed edges have produced crappie during the transition period, before the water gets in the 50s. Rigging or jigging chubs have been a standard tactic for walleye this time of year. If your noticing a lot of debris throughout the water column, turnover may be going on, fish a bigger body of water, they turn over a little latter. Have not been on Webb, just tips for this time of year.... Good luck!

      Try pine lake off of McFarland. Easy to get to and good size eyes. You’d need a portable fish finder though. Interesting lake for eyes. Basswood is awesome too but it’s a haul.

      Yeah, I wouldn’t be making this treck until next June. I heard from another source that it’s navigable as well, as long as water levels are normal. Thanks for the info.

      @gimruis   I’ve been accused of having too much patience many times.   My duck hunting buddy talked about people’s differing personalities and how we didn’t understand why fellow hunters weren’t more considerate.  We settled on the fact that we’ve been trained to be that naive from working in the hospitality/service industry too long! 😀   Still loving the hunting but have to change our expectations a bit

      up here on webb lake right now... anyone have any tips or suggestions?!

      Instead of going through all the hassle of mounting it in your boat before you knows if it's good. You may try duct taping the ducer to a stick to hang over the side and run some power wires to it.   You should know pretty fast if it works or not by making a few knob adjustments. Good Luck.

      Orchard in Lakeville has a good population of tiger's.

      I know this....not as many smallmouth coming up shallow on this fall trip as compared to spring. Could not get a top water bite regardless of time of day and depth of water.   Found a few stragglers in the few hours we chased them.
