Fished Duck Lake Friday evening the 26th. Lots on small crappies. They are really small but fun to catch none the less. Would be a good spot to take kids for an action packed evening. Approximately 6" of ice.

I know Duck opened up earlier this winter, but so did Washington. How come we have 14" of ice in Mud Bay and only 6" on that smaller lake? Since there were only four houses on the lake this weekend, it looks like you were in the same area the bite went last winter.

Yeah, I thought that was interesting also. Must have had something to do with the wind before the last cold snap.

Duck was 90% open and Mud Bay was never open. Bakers was open and now has 6" of ice.

Have you fished in Bakers Bay yet? There were a few in there this weekend, but we weren't quite ready to make the move.

I have never fished this lake before but I talked to a guy on Washington yesterday that said he was going to head out there, b/c we both figured out that the gills and crappies were very negative yesterday. We stuck around for 3 more hours and fished off the north access and Westwood anywhere from 30'-8' of water search for the fish but never found a spot where they were holding and when you would find some once you got set up in your shack they were gone again. Anyways I think we might have to give Duck a shot.

Yeah we made it out Friday night from 4-7:30 or so, and didn't do very well. Fished 17' of water and caught them from the bottom to 7' down. Only problem they were few and far between and they were only 5". I don't know if I was doing something wrong or not in the right spot.

Good to hear. I am sure the weekend traffic had a lot of to with it. I think with the warmer weather coming by the end of the week we should start getting into a better biting pattern. I haven't crossed duck of my list of places to try yet

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
