Hello.  Taking the kids out looking for bass and/or northern this weekend.  First time on the lake - any advice would be greatly appreciated!

We're planning on using texas rigs around docks, not sure that's the best option.

Still holding eggs. Kind of surprising with the water temp. Must have warmed up too fast.

Caught crappie on the weed edge and off wood in little balsam.  Worked hard but kept 24 , 9-11" ers. Bass have not stayed in shallow yet. Caught some nice ones out around 6' rain seemed to slow down the bite yesterday.

We had a great weekend! Over 150 NICE bluegills with some kept for a few meals. We also caught crappies, LMB, pike, walleye, and perch. Everything we caught was off weed edges at the bottom in 6-8' water. We did see a few bluegill nests with males still on them.

Heading up Saturday to put docks in. Not enough bodies to get the lift in. Will post fish report after we get out. Hope to see some more reports too. Been too busy this spring so this will be the first time out. Big Smile
