Since there is no real safe ice to talk about locally, I thought I would post a few things to think about for the upcoming show season and next open water season. We have some great shows coming up to keep us busy and to shake off the cabin fever. January 3rd Lake County Watersports in Wauconda has an open house. Chicago Muskie Expo January 9-11th (I'll be speaking on Friday at 7pm) The Schaumburg Fishing Show January 29-February 1st (I'll have a booth and be speaking) The Tinley Park Show February 7-8 (I will have a booth) Milwaukee Muskie Expo February 13-15 (I'll be speaking and working with Chaos Tackle). This should keep us all busy and help pass the time over the winter. As soon as we get ice I will be doing some ice guiding locally and north in Green Bay and surrounding areas as well. Next fall/winter I will be doing some guide trips on Lake Michigan as well for Brown trout and lake trout. A lot of good things going on! I hope to see everyone at the shows and I hope everyone has a great holiday! Stay safe, enjoy the family and friends and God Bless

Well the fat lady just sang! I'm officially finished with my 2014 open water guiding season. Mother nature cut us short. I personally want to thank each and every person who came out fishing with me this season. I fished almost every day from late March up until this week. It was because of you guys that I get excited and motivated every single day. I hope that I served you well as a guide and hopefully everyone walked away with a good experience. It's time to prepare for ice, the sport shows and the 2015 season! God bless and stay safe

Got out today with clients and did well on crappies and whites. Both deep water and channels had good numbers of fish. A bonus walleye as well. 1/16 Oz jigs and minnows were our best bet. Also used jigs tipped with Jr's Jig Tails. Sent the guys home with enough for a few good dinners. I still have 2 weeks of fishing on the books. Prov certainly said it right, it's about to get real...cold Worried Hopefully the fish keep feeding to keep us warm.

Fished most the day today,Started out real good and went downhill from there. Left CJ's and drifted around there south of the grasslake rd. Within 5 mins I hooked into a nice walleye but he broke me off right at the boat. After that i tried all over with no luck and I lost my net. hopefully tomorrow will be a better day. Good luck

I keep hearing that the golf course channel and ackerman channel has been a good place to fish where exactly are these places I cant seem to find them and will i still be able to get into them since they started the draw down?

You can purchase a sticker at Triangle bait shop and launch at barnacle bob's off Rt. 173 first street past the snack shop if you are heading westbound

Crawler harnesses at this time of year on any body of water would not be productive. It is jig and minnow time. I have also had luck ripping blade baits off of mid-lake humps. Think 12-15 feet, but don't be afraid to go deeper.

Good Luck,

TT

Thinking about heading out today and maybe drifting Marie with some crawler harnesses, but I'm not sure if it will be a waste or not with this front that moved in. I really want to get out though so I'll probably go regardless so if anyone can point me in the right direction I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks, Marty

prov, what channels you are referring to? The only place I could find some crappie was Nappersink near Oak Park Lodge. Any info on crappie will be appreciated.
