FISHING REPORT

Conditions: Sunny
Fished with some buddies north of 10th St in 25 fow from 6:30am-2:00pm. Caught five keepers, 6-8 shorts, and one cat. Keepers came on dead sticks, jigging, and one on tipup. 7-9am was the most action. Took first and third in the derby off of the Lure, not too bad for a bunch of novice fishermen..........

Just got off the lake, fished 7-3 Petenwell County Park. I caught 1-15", 3 slots (20, 20, 25). All caught on dead stick, tungsten pink jig w/plastic and tipped with a fathead. Fishing in 25' of water with timber around ALL sides...in a pocket. All caught between 11 - 1 and released.

No crappies, no cats, no whites, no shorts. When they came in they were aggressive off the bottom on this dead stick presentation. Trying to stay away from the crowds. I did not mark many fish on the locator.

Stay on Top!

Anyone else on the lake right now? Been out since about 9 and only marked a few. Started in the channel in front of Monroe park and now sitting on the edge of the channel between Monroe and long view. Not much going.

I did see that article but it was something I read a while back when studying water temps for different species and trying to figure out the best places to catch walleyes in a few lakes I fish that are fairly shallow. A little homework goes a long way. Wink

I did notice yesterday that there was a little current in front of Monroe. My idea with the mid winter lull is that the water temperature has a lot to do with it. With there being flowing water I would assume the temperature stays pretty consistent throughout the entire flowage except for maybe the southern end in the deep basin where it might be couple degrees warmer at the bottom. Crappies start to lose motor function at 35 degrees and get extremely tough to catch. Walleyes will push deeper in search of warmer water and if not available they will almost stop a lot of movement and hardly eat due to there extremely slow metabolism. These cold temps this week are going to play hell on the bite for the upcoming weekend. My best advice to everyone would be to target the deeper sections of the channel and if you have a thermometer to check around the lake and look for a little warmer water. Even a couple degrees difference. With the water temp in the river being from 31 to 33 degrees I couldn't imagine the lake being a whole lot warmer.

I was wondering if in the past when they start the draw down did it seen to help the fishing? I know I have to use more weight to keep my lines closer to bottom but never notice if the bite was any better.

Coming up this weekend and was hoping to run and gun a bit to find some fish. Sounds like the slow mid winter bite is upon us. Maybe I should just put some boards out for pike on smaller area lakes.

Just got off the lake. Slow day. One legal eye and one crappie. Both released. After noon they weren't even showing up on the flasher. I wasn't going to move with the wind. Switched over to an 1/8th ounce orange/yellow jig with a fathead and pounded the bottom. Marked a ton of fish that way. Mostly bigger marks. Lots of hard chasers that would scream off the bottom and sit and look or would hit real light. Fished in 19 fow on the west side of the channel out from Monroe.

Truck travel was still pretty good. I drove out from the Petenwell county park and left from the Lure with no problems at either launch with a truck.
