Just wondering if anyone know how thick the ice is and if it's driveable. Thanks.

I got 15" of ice. Cars and trucks driving around. I fished the second deep hole, got some small bluegills. Got sick of lookers and no biters, so I moved up to the outside edge of teh first deep hole by the houses. I was in 10 feet of water, and I caught all the 9 and 10" crappies you could handle, but the weird thing was they were suspended 3 feet below the ice.

Don't worry about driving, nice flat access on the north side (very small bump, that's about it).

Easy superman.. a guy can ask.. doesnt meant that the other has to answer.... I would say your typical crappie gear and jigs will do just fine.. Demon by CJ&S.. larger Marmoskas.. Lunar Bug by JB lures, or smaller Gem-n-Eyes... should all work.. tipped with aeither a waxworm or minnow of just the minnowhead. Last night I was fishing crappies(not on big marine) and expierimenting with the smallest NilsMaster Jigging shad bait.. the crappies loved it. I also got a ton on a red Diamond jig with a soft plastic tail, no bait.

There is a pressure ridge that runs east west across the south bay, about 300 yards south of the tiny island. I commonly access the lake from the launch off of May Ave.

I'd recommend either using the north launch or the newer launch at the Big Marine Park Reserve, what little snow we've received has drifted towards the launch off of May Ave. The ice is getting thick, I've measured close to 18" the last few times out.

      Hello Friends   Well it appears our dock company will not be able to lift our dock this season (Frazer Bay/Smart's Bay area) due to his lifting barge only being in this area first weekend in October and we like to keep the dock in until after MEA (this year ending October 21). Any suggestions? It's a pretty simple A Frame with a ladder and an L. I know I could do it myself, but have always preferred to have someone else do it.   Thanks for any insight

      The panfish tip above is a good tip for Webb. I grew up fishing that lake and I'd say good luck! I haven't caught anything worthwhile in the boat on Webb in years. Tips vary based on species, but the points are good and look for the "hidden treasures"

      Curious what that cost to have it surveyed if you don't mind sharing.

      Questions. Would you like something on a motor route. Stick to or fish smaller lakes. Travel distance. How many days.

      If you have an aluminum boat and open access to bottom of the hull, you can just set the transducer in a little puddle of water inside the boat.  The signal of a working unit will read just fine through the hull.

      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.
