  1. What's going on with the site?

    I mean everytime I have to log in? And my password needs to be reset... Not very easy to use anymore. Why not just 1 password for EVER and log in!

    Are you sure it wasn't a bullhead? Can be mistaken sometimes for a cat fish. I have never heard of a catfish in Nebags or any other nearby lakes for that matter. Catfish prefer a system that has river characteristics including but not limited to: current, etc.. I'm willing to bet it was a yellow bullhead. I have caught a few over the years out there. Not a common catch. Also have caught sucker as well, again not common though. Glad to hear the bite is turning on for you.
  3. Releasing the prime breeders is important. Kudos to your buddy. 11" or smaller is a great rule of thumb...
  4. Fished the Chip this weekend and found some success. Lots of crappie action in select bay and bottle neck areas near warm water, timber and old cabbage. Bobber and minnow was best, but anything was working. We kept 10 smaller fish for the 3 of us and that was plenty of fish for us. No need in keeping 25 fish (what a joke). I wish the DNR would reduce the limit in WI!

    Waterfront is now called dockside and they are open. Not sure about tournaments, we don't participate in them because, not fans of what they can do to fish populations. All these lakes in the area have far to many tournaments which contribute to hurtful results.

    You can catch em all day, but some days the traffic on the lake can get bad, so yes morning hours are best. I like casting x raps #10, or northland tackle impulse paddle (great bait). Smallies on Nebags can be great fun! Good luck, and if you have trouble feel free to give me a call and I can help ya out. Number below. Tight Lines, JH

    The lake is open now, but during my drive I noticed the dock was not in and in fact blocking the access. so... Pretty sure the ice went out on the 14th or 15th.. Spring time fish were biting good in the Hayward area. We caught over 60 decent crappies and a couple of accidental game fish. We released all of the fish we caught because we want to keep the spawn cycle good this year. Hopefully others follow suit or at least selectively harvest on not stack freezers. Good luck, JH
  8. Tough to say. Still had plenty this last couple weekends. I am using the wheeler, but there are people driving still (not advised). My guess is we will be open water fishing by April 9th? but we will see.....

    Hi, This lake is a harder lake to target fish as oppose to the open water season. Nontheless, you can catch fish. Fishing in edge of drop offs always is best for us. Using soft plastics with tiny jigging raps or small small spoons. This lake does have very big pan fish if you can find em, but join the movement and make sure to selectively harvest em. We need them good genes in these waters to continue to produce great fishing opportunites. Good luck mister

    Ieee ya iiiiii, here comes the ice tourney season on our local waters. Crossing my fingers that the slaying that is about to commence is not bad. Wish these lakes were better protected with suitable slots and limits.

    I have not been to nebaggie yet, so not sure, I would use caution. That lake is sketchy for first ice...
  12. Dangerous conditions out there if you are looking at ice fishing. Any other reports?
  13. Ice Reports

    I know that we are stuggling for ice. At one point we had fishable ice, but the recent changes have doomed what we had. Dangerous
  14. I would venture to say that this area having grown up around the area is dangerous territory. I imagine fish are there but ice fishing it, I don't think I am going out there. Be safe.
  15. Built a new stand- the process

    For the platform 2 x 4 floor joist, what type of fasteners are into the tree? Looks nice BTW
