Fished Pierce on 11/15 in the afternoon.  Temp was about 50 and windy.  The water temp was 41.6F and fished for muskie.  Not bites or siting of muskie.  Three other boats on the lake and it looked like no one caught anything.  Humminbird did not identify as many fish as normal but we avoided the shallows.  Was nice not having boat traffic.  Putting the boat away tomorrow, waiting for 2018......

First time out on this lake, today. Spent about three hours in the middle of the day, Marked a ton of baitfish followed by larger fish at around 12 feet, but couldn't get and action off that. Noticed that my anchor was clean as a whistle whenever I pulled it up. No bottom weeds that I could find anywhere between 12 and 30 feet, all over the place. Followed a couple schools of baitfish into a small bay and watched them getting spooked and hit by a few Bass, most likely. Nice lake. Nice ramp and parking. I drowned nightcrawlers and shiners, and threw a shiny spinner along the banks, but nothin' happenin' on anything, anywhere I went.

Got in about a half hour of fishing this afternoon. Only had the trolling motor and it was getting pretty windy - so couldn't get too far from the launch.

Anyway, picked up 4 crappie - 9" or better.
