Good weekend all around! Lots of traffic on the lake ALL day. A good amount of people fishing and using the lake during the day. Sand Bars are packed. chiggers (or whatever you want to call them) are in the shallow warm water, scrub those legs. We did our annual smelt fry at Eagle Point. I even had some time to get out for a boat tour and some fishing!

We dropped some husky jerks and ran at 1.9-2.1mph. We looked for dock runs and areas that had little boat traffic. We boated 6 walleyes and 1 pike for a couple hours of easy fishing. Only 1 walleye was a keeper. I was surprised how hard they were hitting. 

Get out there and have some fun before the snow flys!

Opening weekend this year was fun.  First time in a long time that it wasn't snowing or raining.  Good depth seemed to be 10-12'.  Over the course of the weekend, caught a bunch of small Northern's and small chunky Walleye's.  The Walleye's looked really healthy and fat.  In the water, a fat 12" looked like it was 14".  We ended up keeping 4 walleyes in the slot for the weekend.

I did a video of Eagle Point Campground and the seasonal camping they offer.

Fished hard for a few days.  We'd pick up a Crappie here a Crappie there, but nothing consistent.  Finally after a few hard days, we were able to find some fish.  One thing that remained consistent, was the depth of 17'-19' and Maggots on little pink jigs.  We'd get one or two on a Crappie Minnow, but Maggots worked best when we finally found them.  Also piked up some nice Tulibee's that my buddy kept for smoking.  Ice was about 18" solid, the accesses were good as well.  I was driving my Ranger with tracks, but there were guys driving trucks all over the lake.

Sand Burr, I've been driving a Ranger with Tracks, but they are still driving trucks all over the lake.  The accesses are still good from what I could see. Monday we got a bit of slush on the lake but it refroze Monday night.

Been out on BSL chasing Crappies the past few days.  It's been tough, finding some here and there, but pattern.  Been doing good at Social Distancing though I guess.  Going again tomorrow, hopefully the report is different then.

Plenty of trucks when I drove by yesterday. Landing looked good. Cold weather did some healing.

It looks as though that middle layer of slush is making a presence on the lake. Consider using ATV's and SxS if venturing out on the ice.
