Took my nephew out to catch crappie. We targeting water depths 8-10' because that's where most the fish should be around this time of year especially on this lake, I know this very well,.I rigged up my nephew with a simple hook & weight with a worm and let it chill on the buttom. I lost count of how many blue gills&bass he's hooked on to and released. Overall we got 25 crappie 9-10" with in 3hrs of fishing.

Water temps only up to 47*, I found 48.1 but I could have stepped off the boat and it would have been ankle deep. Flipped and pitched everything with multiple colors and varying weights and nothing so much as spooked. Two hours in and here came the wind and whitecaps! Stayed with it for another 4 hours but finally pulled the rip cord.

Getting old real quick! This lake is shallow and grassy and I fished out to about 8 foot and all the way up to holes in the mat I would have had to pull a bass over floating land mass if I hooked it. I tried some moving baits and even topwater just to play with my new frog rod, may as well been fishing a puddle.

The only excitement was when a stupid trout short struck my jig on the way back to the boat and then swam under me. Not sure where tomorrow will take me but I'm done driving any distance until Mid-April at this point. U-G-L-Y.

Still finding water temps at 45*. Actually spooked one today though! Started structure fishing on steeper drop offs working my way all the way to shore fishing every type of cover I could find. Never got touched. Multiple techniques but diminishing patience though so I am catching myself fishing too fast. Worst start to a season in 10 years personally.... this may be the first March I've been skunked in since I started truly 'fishing' in March! Grrrr

Only this coming weekend to get it done or it will be April before I boat a largemouth and that's just plain ridiculous lol

Took a friend out to try for early spring crappie at one of my secret lake near home. We arrived on the lake 10:20am. Fished till 2pm. Overall we got 11 crappie 9-11" all females, a few bass and a few sunfish. All fish caught 10-15ft of water. This lake always the 1st to get action and it's only going to get even better in the next week or two.

Ran up to this lake today regardless of the downpour and colder temps. It's always good to get some casting practice in and get the ever aging back and shoulders limbered up and back in the swing of things.

Covered a lot of water with nothing to show for it. Six others were out trying as well, didn't get a chance to speak to any of them so not sure how they did. I called it before noon but couldn't let it go so I rolled over to a nearby lake and gave it a couple more hours with the same results. Getting a little warmth over the next couple days should help but as far as I'm concerned once we get past Monday it should pretty much be game on!

Water temps were universally 44.5 degrees on lake one and exactly one degree warmer on lake two.

Good luck out there.

This report covers the past two weekends. 2-5-17& 1-29+17. My little honey hole has been good to me. Took a good friend out on the ice and got him his first ice fish. Not he's hooked. Lots of gills and crappie. A few largemouth both big and small,. The big ones hit light freight trains and pull like them too. So much fun pulling them pigs through the holes. Getting two new rods this week and looking forward to next weekend already

Went to my little honey hole today with the 2 older children. Lots of snow and ice. Ice was 9". Drilled 6 holes and pulled fish out of 5 of them. Kids hooked into some fish right away. Then Got cold and bored. I was pulling fish left and right with the pimple. Got 3 different species of fish. All with the little pimple. First bass and crappie of 2017. The bite died off towards dark and started moving holes back to the sled. Last hole, drop the ducer down and see marks towards the top. Figure what the hell. Start jigging the pimple, mark gets bigger. I miss hits 4 times in a row and he stays around. 2 minutes later my UL rod doubles over and a sunny darn near bigger then the hole pops out. 9 3/4". I'm freaking out , kids are freaking out because I am. Good day. And a good fish to end the night on. I normally don't keep fish. But this one is going on the wall. Embrace the suck long enough, and good things will happen.

Went back to my new favorite lake. Started at my usual spot #2 with a spinnerbait, nothing. Tossed a worm in the same places, and caught 3. Then threw in a crankbait and caught 3. Went to spot #1 and, nothing, but a fish grabbed and pulled my worm in half, it wouldn't come back for seconds. Went back through spot #2 and caught another on a spinnerbait. Nothing over 1 1/4 pounds. Never did get to spot #3. Not bad for 1 1/2 hours fishing.

Spent day on a secret lake yesterday. Had 9 on with 6 in the net. I fished out of an Outcast Pro Stealth one man pontoon boat with a 30 lb thrust minnkota on it. All fish were all from 16 to over 19, except for one at 14 inches. Had one right beside the boat pushing 5 pounds. I can't say enough good about the new Old Guy 1---2.8 inch fluorescent lure that Donn makes.. It worked awesome. Also have the orange one, but never needed it. I used 1-1/2 colors of leaded line with 60 feet of 15 lb mono connected to 45 inches of leader and then the lure tied to that. I also used my fly pole with a high-d line on it that has a 8 inch per second sink rate with 12 feet of 15 lb momo connected to 45 inches of leader and then the lure was tied to that. I let all the fly line out. I just trolled the setups at either three or four on my electric motor which was about 1.8 mph or there about. I'm sure those lures will also work for kokanee as well. Especially if you use scented shoepeg corn with them. Altho I just used the lure by itself yesterday for the rainbows.

Anyway, I hope this helps anyone who would like to give them a try. I give them a big thumbs up. Thanks Donn.
