MOON PHASE (67%)
Waning Gibbous

6” solid inches in south side of big arb.

careful heading out. Can only go out so far because rest of lake just locked up.

caught bunch of perch and couple bluegill and 1 small walleye.

used tips downs with Rosie’s otherwise jigging with waxies did the trick as well.

good luck all and right lines.

Fished Big Arb 3 times in the last week and the panfish finially turned on . Caught the best quality crappies i have ever caught there . Also had some nice 8" sunfish .Caught lots of fish and keep enough for a couple meals . Caught them on rockers ,plastics and little Cecils . Any color just had to keep switching till you found right color for the day. Hot pink rockers were the best for my group . The landing is getting pretty beat up . I will be walking out from now on .

MOON PHASE
Last Quarter

Spent all day on big arb. Disappointed.  Lots of action but all perch between 3 and 5 inches, 10 feet of water and about 50 anglers all catching same thing with few exceptions. Ice good got slushy at end of day we took quad out but most drove on.

Fished Big Arb last weekend for opener. Walleye bite was slow, only caught 1 19 incher. We could not find any panfish, which is surprising for this lake. It must be too early for them. There are thousands of 3-4" perch in mielke bay. Bass on the other hand was fantastic. My family caught 45 bass total this weekend. There were no small bass caught, all 15" or over. Only 1 smallmouth caught
