Was driving around the area today, Monday 11/13/2017,, just checkin things out. Okee launch dock pulled,but no ice.  Sunset Bay still in as of Monday. Sunset will be in until ice ,but better hurry !  it's starting. ... skim ice starting to form around it and in the bay.  But still lots of boats using it today.

Also saw Okee Bay mostly thinly skimmed over now, including by hotel docks.

Whalen Grade launch no dock ,and iced a little harder already. (But would not try to walk on it) 

I done for the year. Congrats to the those braving the early cold,a bit better than I was willing to this year. Looks like you finally starting to get some nice fish. Have a great winter !

MOON PHASE (21%)
Waning Crescent

Went out on Saturday morning from 6 am to 8 am I caught three sauger with one legal. I found active fish right as I had to leave but that's how it goes. I drifted with a river rig and jigs.

MOON PHASE (30%)

CONDITIONS
Cloudy

AIR TEMP
31° - 35° F

WATER TEMP
Below 40° F

Went today from 7-noon with a very good friend of mine, fishing an area (not secret) where he has been doing very well recently. The water temp had dropped quite a bit and the bite was definitely off for us. We managed 3 shorts all day. Tried plastic with and without meat, hair jigs with and without meat, 3 way rigs with floating jig-heads. and zips. Nothing was working for us. We did manage one nice size fish, just the wrong species. Still, my personal best. A quick pic and back in the drink. 60".

CONDITIONS

Fished solo 10 to 4. Managed 9 keepers total and didn't keep track of the short fish. Not sure I can count that high. Kept my first 4 and my last one. Jig bite was better for numbers, trolling was better for quality. Plastics produced nothing jigging, but hair and meat was pretty consistent. Purple or yellow both worked well for hair, purple flicker shads wore best trolling. Only about 10 boats out today that I saw.

MOON PHASE
Last Quarter

We caught 107 fish last weekend on the lake and had a blast.  Got one 27.5" walleye, 10 keepers, and a mountain of short fish.  Easily could have caught 100 alone on Saturday but missed quite a few fish.  This has been by far my best year on the lake, especially for numbers of fish.  Everyone be safe this weekend, I hope to see some of you out there.
