Started fishing at 6 am saturday. Cold front and drizzle did not help! 1 bass 25 gills 2 BIG cats and 3 BIG carp. All on night crawlers 3 -4 ft deep. All caught " deadsticking", only wanted bait dead still. Lures, softbaits  or any kind of movements fish would bite and drop. Saw 1 other boat " bassing"... " not even a bite"... tried bass fishing for the 1st 3 hours saturday drew a blank and resorted to panfishing and catfishing. Always remember flexibility... heck rather catch something than nothing!  Dunno the water temp.. didn't take boat out, BUT fish that were caught were cold. Not like a couple weeks ago. When the lake was bath tub warm.. Thinking lake temp went way down with the 3 days rain..

tight line guys.. allready thinking of fall fishing.... this year is tough.

Deepsprings the only northern i saw caught were on spinners and roaches  thru the ice. Spinners were at the dam in the fall roaches were on tipups ice  fishing. Got a 9lbr  on the wall...ice fishing, tip up...  got  bite offs bass fishing under docks.... that shad was in the spring .. After seeing the shad explosion  this ice out/spring. Trying to find something different than shad imitators..

crappie put a hook in it's back and let it swim around the dam. if there is any northerns in this lake you will find out soon enough. i would say i highly doubt it though as they would need to jump the dam in the spring, i don't think i ever seen the water level get that high but could be wrong. i do know i have caught them in the nippersink by the grand hole mill in early spring when the ice breaks up.
