Conditions: Cloudy Air Temp: 56° - 60° F Water Temp: 51° - 55° F
Late report from Friday: got out 8-2 on the north end looking for cats. First 2 fish were monster bluegills. Ended up catching about 18 cats (only 3 were above 2 lbs which was odd), a few bullhead and 2 nice LM bass. Only 1 other boat out that I saw. Bite should only pick up from here...

Go out crappie fishing on Sunday. Too nice for fish. Here are a couple observations: The water is very cloudy still. I hope it's not another year with algae blooms due to the low daphnia count, but that is what it looks like so far. Weeds are surprisingly scarce. Most of what I saw was in about 8 feet of water, not shallower and not much deeper. Water temp anywhere from 48-60. Some shallow north end stretches got up to 60, but most areas in the low 50s. Interesting thing happened...caught a small 20 inch pike on a crappie minnow, and when handling it, was squirting eggs. I thought it to be a bit late for a pike to still be spawning, and not to mention it was a little fish. Anyone have thoughts on this? I would have thought female pike don't start producing eggs until mid 20's or bigger, and thought they spawn with water temps under 40. I know it heated up quickly this past week, but thought with the length of time it hovered near 40 degrees, the spawning would be done.

All in all a great time on the water, and looking forward to a great season. Tight lines, FS

Farted around a bit at Mendota Cty park- about 10 other people fishing - no one was having much luck. Could see gills along the docks, just not hungry for plastics or worms. One guy had a trout fly under a bobber, saw him get one. But who can complain about being out on a day like this! Cheers all!

Erm... I don't think I can help you here, I only fish from shore, so I'm pretty much limited to whenever the cats decide to come to the shallow. Maybe other boaters can direct you to those cats holes, sorry... Anyway I haven't been out since then, not yet ready to freeze myself again. Big Smile

First outing on the boat this spring, water temp was only 42 degrees. Fished north end 11-3 with nothing to show for it. Water levels appeared at least a foot lower than normal. Looks like next weekend may have warmer weather. But lake was like glass so it was nice to get out and open the boat up!

Shore and night 8-10pm. The wind was beating really hard till 9pm or so, and the bites came right as the wind/waves died down. Not sure if there's any correlation though..

Piers in at Marshall too. Got out for a few hours in the rain today with no luck. Tried for crappies from 5-13 feet. Marked some fish, but nothing hungry for what I was offering them.

Was out for channels and bullheads at Tenney last night, caught a smallie and a bullhead. Still don't understand why would a smallie take my bait. Water level is still pretty low.
