Bad news for the panfish. I survived the winter. Started out 40 degrees with a 20 mile an hour wind pounding us. Third cast, pike cuts off my jig. Water temperature 42. We move south looking for warmer water and active fish. Next stop, 45 degree water. Zip city. Found some 47 degree water and never left. It was 50 when we quit at 3. Very sad day. Dead fish every where we stopped. But what was really heart breaking was having thousands of fish all around us that were dieing. They were slowly coming up to the surface with some kind of fungus on their bodies. They would die right in front of us. We caught about 400 fish. 21 bass, but no keepers. A few crappies and perch and all the rest bluegills. Only 1 in 10 was keeper. But a lot of fun. Airforce had the hot pole. He kicked my ass today. He had a new record, 21 fish in a row on the same waxworm. The real thrill of the day was meeting a 15 year old young man. He was a delight. He watched us catch fish on every cast. We told him he had the wrong type of equipment. We invited him over to show him what he needed. Airforce dug in to his tackle and came out with a hand full of things he would need. He rigged up and caught fish on 9 out of his next ten casts. He was thrilled, and so were we. We made him promise not to show to many people how we do it. Hell of a nice day. Best of luck to all.

Onemorejig, use locator and find the warmest water. It will be only in bays or channels. Forget the main lake for now.

Tough bite! Rain early followed by wind. Maybe 5 other boats out. Most of them fishing LL or inside the wall. We tried LL for a while but to windy. Decided to go to south end to the far channel and caught plenty of nice bluegills. Wax worm, ice fishing jigs. 1 out of 3 were slabs. Took 25 home, fish were holding in the center of channel, about 30 yards before bridge. couldn't see them but they were there. Channel is only good for a short time. I won't be out there again for awhile, thought Id throw a helpful tip out there, especially if lake is really windy.
