under the bridges and around the spill ways it is pretty open but there is still 2 to 3 feet of ice in the middle.

Thanks for the reply. I was in the DL area on tuesday hunting/fishing. I found what I was looking for!!

Water is really cold yet. 99% of the people where still fishing on the ice. You won't catch me out there!!

It is going to be a while before fishing heats up. The water was really murky in spots from all the runoff.

Brad,
Are all the bridges open? Where did you fish and how did you do? I am anxious to get up there with my boy but don't want to drive 90 minutes until there is somewhere to fish. I have had good luck at the bridges early, before chanel A opens up.
Any input would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Tully

I tried fishing the bridges. Fishing wasn't very good. I had two bites, one of which broke the line.

The only people fishing were on the ice. I drove by WR road, completely frozen. I talked to a guy fishing there who said the ice was still 3 feet thick. He had one 4 lb nort on the ice.

Anybody got a water clarity report?? I was at the rainy for the past 2 days, WOW. Murky water makes fishing very unproductive. IF the fish can't see the bait, how are they going to hit it??

I plan on going this weekend, so if nobody replies, I'll post upon returning!

Ice fishing has finally came to an end and now its time to get ready for open water. Recent rains have all the coulees and channels running and Northerns are biting at each and everyone. The best luck seems to be at Pelican Lake and the bridge at Churches Ferry. Most anglers are having the best luck on Jigs and twister tails or just the plain old Daredevil. Almost every color has been producing. I have talked to many people that have been up there and have caught 10-15 pike and hour. Most fish have been between 2-5pds but bigger fish are starting to show up. It will be at least 2-3 weeks until the ice is off the lake so take advantage of the excellent shore fishing. Good Luck

Shore fishing can be good anywhere. The fish tend to move around from time to time.

The lake is still 80% covered with ice. It won't be too long before its all gone. Then again...

    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.
