  1. Will up date this. All my info is coming from the Miss. face book page. The ice Is good, but watch areas with current. They have been doing well on blue gills, perch, and crappies! Not many reports on northern, but have been getting bass on tip ups.

    Cedar River

    Went over for a while Sat. morning, with wife's son in law. Neither of us could get any hits working jigs and plastics. I switched to my jig and float. Released a 24 in walleye.; 12 in smallie, then gave the set up to Dave. Took a little bit to get him using it right, but he managed four smaller walleye, and one keeper. I re rigged one of my other rods, and managed two nice keepers. Water was up, but fairly clear.

    Learning About Electronics

    I'll just add, that if you can get on a body of water with very good clarity ( this spring maybe?) then you can use your eyes to verify what your sonar is showing. One video I watched said to do this, and it does help.

    Cedar River

    The walleye fishing has been very good lately. I got out a couple of times. Many nice eaters, seemingly all males.

    Cedar River

    Only got to be out once this spring( the river has been going up and down so much). Nothing to show for it, but it REALLY felt good to be out!! Hope for more stable water levels soon.
  7. If you change things. Check the lower unit out well! Judging by the pictures, the prop is kind of beat up.

    Aluminum vs Glass

    trout. With all the conversation! We do require a picture when you get it!

    Silly Reel selling question

    I'll be the problem child, and say on. My thinking is that it tells me a little more about the reels history.( how it was used[ did it have braid, mono, or flouro], the outside condition gives a little info.) But,i learn the most when I open them up.

    Flipping/pitching rod

    I'll put in a vote for the Bass Pro bionic blade.( watch for sales. They had them for $60 couple of weeks ago) Think mine is a 7-6 H telescoping. But the guys are right in are you going to be pitching or flipping,( does make a difference for rods) and what size weights you plan to use.

    New Boat Floor

    I'm a carpet guy, BUT! That's just me!( I very seldom use any bait, so clean up is easy ) Either of those will work. Look at cost, ease of installing, and weight of each. Be certain you have some sort of a textured surface to help prevent slipping. Talked to many people that love being able to hose a boat down after a fishing trip.
  12. Harpers Ferry area. The river is still up, but been steady. Main channel is clearing up some with lots of grass coming down from up north. The walleye guys were find some fish trolling and drifting. One guy did well on perch below the dam. No one was finding any crappie that I talked to. We did fair on blue gil and a few perch in the back waters( fished hard and got two more meals), with a couple of small northern in the mix. Did manage a 4 1/2 lg. mouth fishing a suick! Hope to make a day trip over there yet, but wife's place is shut down for the season. Will be fishing the cedar more now. Wished we would have had the two four year old grand kids with us Sunday! Found a spot where you just dropped your bait over the side of the boat and had bites! Didn't matter if it was a worm or plastic. Nothing big, but was fun!!
  13. Was a non boater this weekend. Fishing from shore and boat docks. The panfish bite is starting to turn on in the back waters. Manage three meals of nice blue gils. Tried for smallies , only small fish. Talked to a couple of bass guys with little to report. Northern fishing was slow. Plan to take to boat next weekend. River getting closer to normal. No walleye report.
  14. This is for the Harpers area Course the river is up. Again/still!! Lots of grass coming down. so fishing a little tougher. Did manage a few panfish, but was REALLY hit and miss. did catch some nice bass Did not catch any northern thou I had two on that grabbed my smaller fish as I reeled it in. Had a few white bass that were working, they were small ones.

    Jigging Rapallas

    A good option when vertical jigging. I'll have one on one rod and a jig on another.( we can use two rods in Ia.) Also a great lure for newbies. Just get them sweeping it up and down touching the bottom once in a while. The fish will just be on! Don't have to explain what a bite feels like.
