Water temps are dropping quick.  Edges around launch area actually had skimmed over but main lake still 44-45.

Lot had three trailers all day.  Fishing was great.... caught two bass and four small pike while crappie fishing.... once you find them it was as good as it has been all season.

Hopefully we get a freak winter and it stays open all year :)

Hit the lake a few days ago.  Targeted walleyes in deeper water using snap raps, rippin raps, and blade baits.  To my surprise I ended up landing a bunch of nice perch.  Never had a walleye.  Oh well.  I will take the nice surprise of perch.

The main lake water temp on the surface was around 54F.

On at 11:00am off at 6:15 targeting walleye - threw cranks shallow and soaked little suckers deep - no go - switched to crappie around 3:30 and we took a dozen home for the pan - lots of little ones had to do some sorting.  Nice to be out - tight lines.

On at 6:30 off at 11:30. Hit up all the normal areas for walleyes this am in the snow.  Two other trailers in the lot when we got there and maybe 5 when we left-We must be nutz.  Got one right away and thought it was game on. 18.5”. Saw plenty on the hbird, but couldn’t get a commitment. Gonna chalk this trip up to cold front conditions.  If anyone wants to share info- PM me.

Good luck Dylan!  Prolly won't be much left but small gills and crappie....Most of the keepers seem to go home with the same folks daily...

You may want to try somewhere a bit further north????

I don't have spot lock so fishing that deep would be tedious at best for me. Not gonna haul up an anchor from that deep either. I mark fish in the deep part of the lake (35+) all the time suspended about 15-25 down. I met a guy who slow trolls plastics out there for crappies with success with the occasional big gill. Seems like a lot of work for panfish.

Just curious. I keep hearing that you guys are fishing shallow for gills.  We have been catching them on Geneva in 30 plus FOW for the last month or so.  Has anyone tried deeper water?
