Kelly,

I will be renting from you this next Wednesday for a night along with my 14 yr old son and a 16 yr old nephew. Based on the youngsters ages there won't be a whole lot of adult beverage consumption occuring in the house, but maybe a little to keep the blood thin on my part and maybe to drown out the boys voices if the fishing is slow! (I also think this voices thing may be another use for Ice Buster bobbers!)

Just wondering if there is a certain beverage or two that I could have available for you or Jon when you are ready to call it a day on the ice. Your profile indicates a preference for "Cap" but need to know what else would go in and whether that works for Jon if he stops by instead!

If you wait until dry land to quench your thirst that is fine but I'm a boy scout thru and thru and always want to "Be Prepared"!

Looking forward to my first sleeper on URL and watching those boys when they catch their first walleye through the ice and maybe even a crappie or two.

Yes I sail with the Capt. on rare occasions. grin.gif Speaking of kids. A group out there last night had a young boy with his little snowmobile. Everytime the bite slowed down they would send the kid out to drive his snowmobile around the house and they would get 2 or three crappies right away every time. confused.gifshocked.gif Jon said it was amazing.

I have noticed on LOW in the past that when the guides would stop by or they pulled a house by us that they were moving that I seemed to catch more fish. Not sure why other than the disturbance and waves in the water. I'll test the theory by having the boys run around the house for awhile and if I catch more fish inside then they can keep it up!

I may have sailed with the Captain in the past but it has always been the "crash" into the dock that wasn't as pleasant.

I'd be happy with 2-3 crappies in the pail instead of every time just to say we got some!

I talked to Foster about this and as all of us know Foster can never be trusted to tell us the truth about fishing but after numerous Miller's he did say that he has started dropping his V-Plow and running a U-turn around his house's. This crappie bite is at times strangley aggressive,,,,,,noise??????

Years ago I had a father/son that came fishing fairly often. They always wanted their house over rocks. They had an hourglass shaped rock on a rope that they bounced off the rocks on the bottom every 10-15 minutes. They caught a lot of fish. The son was a Navy diver. He said that in the summer he would dive down and lay on a rockpile banging 2 rocks together and that the walleyes would come to him.

I don't drink, that smart mouthed twin of mine drinks way to much Vodka. grin.gifwink.gif

As for the noise I was amazed, everytime the kid would start tearing around the house those guys would start catching fish.

So what is the per hour charge to get your evil twin sauced up on Vodka and have him ride one of those little kid snowmobiles around the shack? And what would the business be called? Jonny P's Custom Crappie Calling, maybe. grin.gif

Little sled...hmmm. Evil Jonny hasn't done that one. He did jump one of those little motor cycles into a swimming pool, that was called "Jonny meets mad pool man." Best to just stay away from small motor toys. wink.gif

Oh man, that's hilarious. Been awhile since I burst out laughing at a post. Really brings me back. I've got an evil twin also, but I haven't seen him since I quit drinking. He was a blast. I really miss him sometimes, but at least he's not around to steal out of my wallet and say things without my brains permission anymore. Here's to good fishing and have fun up there tripleplay.It's great to be able to get up there mid-week.

Ya thankfully my look alike is getting older and slower, but you should have seen the look on the poor pool guys face the next morning. He stood there looking at a little 80 Yamaha motorcycle in the bottom of the pool then he would look at the remains of the picnic table used for a ramp then back at the motorcycle in the pool while holding his little net.

He did have a sense of humor, he looked at me and said "I'm gonna need a bigger net, and you are going need a bigger checkbook to fix this." When I got the bill I realized he wasn't really that funny. shocked.giflaugh.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

      pikeandchester, your kid is priceless!   You know that you wouldn't be going by your self much anymore-Right! 😅

      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.
