To everyone who's viewed my videos on YouTube, I apologize if you had to sit through their stupid ads before viewing, I even had to do it! I am not monetized in any way for these videos, as such I thought they wouldn't show ads before showing the video. Guess that's not the case...

CLOSE TO THE LAKE!

Kutt2, certainly don't make a special trip or go out of your way. Just thought if someone was going to check things out they could let me know. Checked Monona and Mendota here this afternoon and the two landings I checked were iced in. With all the wind we've been having it's tough trying to get videos with the boat bouncing up and down. May try Waubesa tomorrow, if that's bad I'll probably get the boat ready for storage. Was really hoping to get out a few more times this month though. Thanks for offering to check though! Rick

Only saw one SMB on one of the targets that trip. Marked a lot of fish schooled up in deeper water but they were on the move and I didn't have the time or patience to try and keep up with them. I see people weigh down Christmas trees on the Madison chain on ice thinking they'll make their own personal cribs. I tracked one large group about 15 years ago, they ended up over a mile away from where they were first placed. That's why some clubs cut holes in the ice (and properly fenced them off afterwards) to set concrete culverts stuffed with brush on Monona and Waubesa.

If anyone is driving by Rock Lake today and can see if there's any ice build up at the north or south landings please let me know. There was just a little build up at Sandy Beach my last trip out, with the cold nights since then it's probably getting harder to get out. I used to break through the ice to get out, but after breaking a $300 transducer and tail light I've stopped doing that. Have two side imaging transducers on the back of the boat, would be an expensive repair. Once was enough! Thanks, Rick

I know on the SE side of lake there were cribs that were placed on ice and obviously when ice melted the cribs sank. Thank was many years ago,  I have seen some 55 gallon drums and also some other interesting items with underwater camera in past.  Love hearing and seeing what you find.

Very interesting RK.  Thanks for posting videos.  I fish Rock lake a ton, good chance I have some of those on my waypoint list.  I used to drive around the lake at night with side imaging and mark everything odd I would see.  Did you see any fish hanging on any of the objects/cribs?

Here's some of the videos from 11/22/22. Any thoughts/history of the two different types of metal structures? Assuming they were intended to be used as cribs.

Out doing some scanning and shooting some videos yesterday. Water temp at 39.8°F, just a little bit of ice by the landing. Water clarity is decent in most places. Could see a short distance (Aqua-Vu HD7i Pro Gen 2) with the camera in 60+ FOW with no camera lighting needed. Marked some schools of fish in the 20 to 40+ foot range. Dropped the camera down but they were on the move so I didn't spend any additional time on them. The snapshot shows what I believe is a large school of fry in 40 FOW. There were on the move also. Did find some more cribs, including a stack of pallet style and some what looked like a bunch of metal rods. Actually two different designs in different locations. No fish (other than one school of fry) on any of the cribs. Next week I'll process the videos and will post a link then to some of them. Also found a second boat. Both are old rowboats in poor shape. Hope to get out some more after Thanksgiving is over, lots of stuff to do on my home lakes in Madison!

Years ago we used to drift deep water and catch suspended gills this time of year, is there still a bite like that?
