Went out Saturday afternoon 3:00 pm to dark. Marked the baitfish and looked for the Big hooks in the bait. Hit the usual community spots and found baitballs. 24- 35 FT of water. Dropped suckers into baitfish and nothing. Not a bite. Maybe I should have gone smaller? Jig and a minnow? Have not tried the jigging raps? Looks like some are having good luck. Ant tips pls pm me. Thanks!!!

Out at 6:30 this am. Same presentation yielded 7 eyeballs today. Not one keeper. Most 16-17 inches with a couple dinks in there. Lost two huge fish today that had me crying all the way home. Definitely was a 10 pound plus fish, just never saw it. Could have been a carp, northern, or muskie, but in my head it was that once in a lifetime walleye. No bait needed as some of you guys pulling suckers obviously saw, and immediately changed baits. Did anyone else end up with any keepers?
Was out yesterday after work for a couple of hours on shore and only managed one Bass on a Jig. Looking to fish this lake (for the first time) on my boat on 10/22/16 any information is much appreciated on where to locate some bass.
Please PM me with any information THANKS!
Crappies have been suspended and still active alot depends on the day. They dont pull the pier until there is ice in the channel last year we broke ice to get boat out and piers were in. If you are worried call lakeside bait and tackle before you come out. They dont mind helping 262-725-7007 .The beard we are on iron country out of beloit this saturday morning at 720am talking about crappies hope it helps.
Jigger the best has yet to come try a light lindy rig with a xtra large fathead and casting the jigging shad rap into deeper water lift let settle back to boat but when you feel resistince set I did not but learned quickly then I started getting them. the first hour and last are the best but you never know. keep trying.
