finding new fishing holes

Walli1 or anyone else. I'm not a stalker or spot Crowder or anything but I've noticed you on many of your spots that you previously spoke about between Prescott and the narrows and wondering what type of structure you key on that makes you try these spots. don't want any of your spots, just a something to start with as far as what you see on your chip that makes a spot look interesting

I've spent years going up and down that stretch of river looking at the graph searching different areas, the areas that catch my eye are steep drops holding bait fish, the eyes tend to force the bait against the steep drop for a easy ambush, areas where rocky bottom meets silt bottom sometimes you just find one or more of those areas that eyes just always tend to be around for some reason, many times I go out and if the fish are active I'll try new areas looking for the next hot spot! The river is a the biggest fishing challenge there is, fish are in a area one day and gone the next but I have learned that somewhere on the river the fish are bitting it's just finding that area, 6.5 miles of river lay between the kinni and prescott, that's alot of water to get a grasp on and eight years I have under the belt doing it and I still am learning.

Other things to look for on the river are areas or pockets where the bottom may only change a foot or two and the eyes will lay in this dip to get out of the current and ambush bait that goes over head, one area I know well is only aliitle larger than a boat and its along the top of a well fished area but tends to be over looked, I consider it one of my top ten spots for sure. I took a fellow onliner to the area last fall and we did really well! I'm so ready, I've taken apart all my reels cleaned them thoughly and re greased and oil them, the tackle box has been gone through and organized, hooks have all been replaced on my favorite cranks, still have to tie up my spinners and crawler harnesses other then that I'm ready!! cool.gif

Walli1, your post got me thinking, i can't remember the last time I've taken apart my reals to clean, what oil do you think works best?

I take apart my reels on a regular bases, I really like quantum hot sauce reel oil, I feel its one of the better ones out there, I ordered mine from bass pro but I'm sure you can find it in one of the local sport shops hope this helps!

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.
