Likewise Joe. I stuck it out bouncing around the Island and the submerged humps. Worked a few nooks and crannies that looked promising on the GPS. No takers but a few sniffers. Managed a dink perch on a copper pimple. May be out tomorrow to fish the cribs and brush piles for crappies and gills.

Well another morning out here with nothing to show for it. Tried locating white bass around many areas. This year i just cant seem to locate them in schools. Mark a few with no hits just lookers. Hopefully they will turn on soon. Just got to keep trying i guess. Anyone else seeing any white bass or walleye. Oldandtired was a pleasure meeting you out there.

Amen on the electronics!!!

I picked up a Vexilar FL-8se last year and it makes ice time so much more productive!! If they're not biting, and you see fish, you at least know there's fish there.. 

Keep your battery charged and it'll last years!!

Thanks Electric, Ill give it a shot. Just ordered myself a sonar unit today. Time to jump into the 21st century. I've wasted too many days fishing water with no fish present.

Fished lake hard today, sunday the 7th. Lots of shacks. Everyone moving often. Can't find the white bass or walleye yet. Crappies and gills equally hard to find. Beginning to think this mud hole should be drained and restocked. Oy. Will fish this week, looking at different spots but I am not that optimistic.
