Same mentality here on Tichigan! One wrapped my line in his prop so I opened my bail. CARPIO
Was out yesterday fom noon til about 8 pm. Had water temps from 39 to 41. Found plenty of bait and worked it hard with suckers and rubber with no luck. Did see 2 little planters follow. There were some trollers out too, but didn' see anyone catch anything. What a Nice day to be out!! Good luck guys

I could see a big fish biting out here on Monday, the last day of unseasonably warm weather with a huge cold front coming in late at night, as tough as they are on Elkhart it's conditions like this that make them bite! I'll be there for one last shot. Cisco's are schooled up tight right now on the steep breaks. Good fishing

Figure8, we were out there on Monday, November 13th and water temps were 45-46. That was a while ago already, but the weather has been mostly mild. You should still have good temps to work with. Sadly we winterized the boat too early.
We caught the small one pictured below that day. I raised a large fish right after dark but couldn't make her eat on the eight. That bigger fish was moving up into a school of fish that I had located. Focus on finding the baitfish. I forgot to post last year, but the second photo is of another fish we caught late in the year. It was a very mild day that time.

I was out there on Saturday morning, wanted to get the boat out one last time. Water temp was 45 in the main lake, and 39 by the launch. I could barely fish because my guides were icing up almost immediately, it was 28 degrees when I launched. Saw a couple good largemouth cruising around by the launch, and one good musky sitting in the weeds just off the pier. Didn't catch anything, but it was a beautiful morning, still my favorite lake. Good fishing/hunting to all, tight lines.
