Hey thanks, Thats always one of my favorites lakes to take the kid fishing. Nice pike for me and lots of sunnies and crappies for the kid, although you got to weed through the pans. But theres some nice ones now and then.

Yeah no problem.. The Croppies were biteing pretty steady out there. Borderline keepers... it was a good time

Drove my fullsize F150 4x4 SuperCrew out there on Thursday, there were about 5 other trucks on the lake at that time, I had been on the lake a few times previously in the week, and had drilled holes in multiple spots from the landing, around the south side of the reeds and out to the southeast tip of the island. All measurments were very consistant at the 13.5"-14.5" range on tuesday, by thursday (when I drove out) I was on 14.5" where I stopped to fish. I would have no problem driving a fullsize after this cold snap. I grew up 2 blocks from Bald Eagle and I have found it to be and extremely consistant lake as far as ice goes, there are a few spots on the lake that I avoid and always seem to have thin ice.

Get ice reports from the local bait shops and stick to the well traveled areas if you are unfamiliar with the lake, remember, NO ice is "safe".

      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.
