Hello all,

Wondering how everyone has done so far this year?

We started on a small lake opening morning. Did not do so well and caught one eye in 3 hours. We moved to Potato and caught 11 more the second half of Saturday. However, on Sunday, back on Potato, my buddy and I boated 21 eyes, 6 northerns, and 5 beautiful smallmouth on Spot tails. We also had at least 7 eyes get off next to the boat, not to mention the several bites we didnt connect on. The best fishing was between 12-2pm (believe it or not). The key depths were 5'to 8'.

I had one stretch, midday,where I boated 3 eyes and and 19.5" smallmouth in a 10 minute span. Sunday was a real hoot!

I can't wait to get back up there this weekend tongue.gif

We fished the West arm of Potato on Sat morning and only caught one eye and a couple of small perch. I didn't even see another eye caught in any of the other boats around us. You must have been on the main lake. We caught the eye on a leech in 12' of water. Eagle was nicer to us. We spent the miday looking for crappies in the shallows. I guess we should have been walleye fishing.

Nels,

We started in the West Arm on Saturday, but we could not pick up anything, nor did we see many being caught (2 I think). You are correct in assuming the main lake was where our action was at.

Are you going out this weekend? We should be out on Saturday and Sunday morning. I am pretty sure that we are going to Potato on Saturday, but we may jump over to Fish Hook or Eagle at sometime.

If you do, good luck.

Hook,

Yes, I am pretty sure that was us your buddy spoke to. If I remember correctly, he has a place on Fish Hook?

When you say "Pines", are you talking the resort?

If you are out this weekend and see us, stop by and say hello.

Good luck

Hook,

So how did you do this weekend? We didnt do very well on Saturday. We managed to boat two fish in about 4 hours of fishing.

Sunday was better. My buddy and I caught 12 nice eyes. Creek Chubs and leeches were the most productive. I couldnt get anything going on Spot tails, I think that bite might be done? Who knows.

I will be back up there Thursday morning with my six year old son to make another run at em.

      where we all fishing today?   Looking to walkout or use 4 wheeler if landing permits?

      We miss the leadership of Ricky Rubio ... Teague is a very bad defender and does not see the floor.  Rubio had his best shooting percentage season ever and career points scored of his career.  Wish we could re-do that trade.   Don't get me going .... among players that play the most minutes ... we are now the 7th oldest team in NBA???   2 year window to win ... we should have kept our talent and let the cake bake!

      We still have 24" of ice on the bay & we're only 6-8 miles from where they set the nets. Doubt they'll be starting anytime soon over there.

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.
