We are going to try Madison this a.m., so we'll see how that goes. I wasn't expecting to see 35 degrees on the thermometer!! I'll post later & let you know if you'll need dynamite & a net grin.gif At least it shouldn't be a monsoon out there today. L2f

I was out on Madison last night and the crappies seem to be in at least 4 feet of water. They started biting good once the wind died down and the sun went down. Pulled in one sunny and a couple of bass in that same depth.

i was out there last sunday nite and ended up getting about a dozen crappies and a few walleyes and some bass and a sunfish. also ive caught all of these within 7 feet of water towards evening. after the wind died down the bite turned on. if u go back in areas where the trees block the wind u might catch some crappies there as well and a variety of fish possibly.

Well, I spent the whole day there today & caught about a dozen crappies (3 keepable, 10"). These were along a gradual drop-off that went from 6'-18' slow trolling a spinner/minnow.The nicer ones were in the deeper of the range. Got 2 eyes in 14' in another area on a jig/leech combo. A few small bass, & oh yeah, a sheepie.I did pitch the submerged veg for pike but nothing doing. ?? Too much sunshine but all in all, a good day on the water.

My brother had originally come up to go fishing this week, but got impatient and with the wind and went home. So i went fishing on thursday by myself. Did great. Caught my limit of crappie in 1.5 hours. Caught my brothers limit also. Let the 3 biggest ones go but of course i could not keep his because he went back home. Too bad for him. They topped the 12 to 12.5 in mark. Also c and r'ed one 27 in northern. Only one walleye though. But all in all a very good day. My best yet. And all the crappie i did keep were all for a meal for me and my family. Sorry, no pictures.

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..
