My 2 buddies and I struggled on Evergreen this past Saturday. Moved around a lot. Found the water to still be stained.

The fishing was terrible for us. I hope the rest of you had better luck this past weekend!

Thanks again Muskie, might be going out Sunday night after the SB. I would love to catch a walleye or some crappie at night. I have about 45 min drive from where iam. Also got a new aqua cam 715C so can't wait to try it out.

This time of year the fish have moved from the shallow mud coves and shorelines to the deeper main basin areas. We have caught several crappies this time of year as deep as 30+ feet down.

Lately we have been getting the saugeye and crappies off of main lake points around 20' of water. Jigging spoons with no bait on them is all I ever use. Haven't used wax worms or any type of live for over 20 years. At times if the fish are looking more than biting I will put 1/3 or 1/2 of a Gulp wax worm or maggot on 1 of the 3 trebles to give them a target.

This year has been 3-5 lookers for every fish that bites. Even for a buddy of mine that uses live wax worms. I have caught a lot of crappies and a dozen or so saugeye out of Evergreen this year, but have had to work for every one of them. Not the best bite this year, but not the worst either.

The Visitor's Center Winter hours are 8am-4pm Monday-Friday. Closed weekends.

The lake and park are open 24/7 if you are fishing or camping otherwise it closes at 10pm.

I will be out on the ice all day Saturday. Probably have the grill fired up at some point with Bloomington Meat's brats (Best in the world), and venison. If you are out there and the smoke drifts your way, come on over and get a hot meal. There will be plenty!

Thad
