Hey all:

We've settled on Nelson Lake for Saturday, Feb. 15. We'd started out with the idea of nearby Smith Lake, but you'll see on the closed "Smith Lake gathering" thread that Nelson will off a lot more options.

There are several public access points on Nelson, which is a long narrow lake, so I don't think we should pick one yet. Better to get a fishing report closer to the day, then pick the closest access to good fishing.

So far, Pig Sticka is the only one interested who can't make that date (I still think he ought to bring the gf - what a great way for her to see the real Sticka grin.gif).

Anyway, could everyone who is interested please sound off that you are coming or not. If someone else can't make the 15th, say so.

And Lundman, aka Stinger1600, you still out there? Nelson is one of the lakes you know well. Be nice if you could come and bring Lundman Jr., too. grin.gif

BD is right. The lake also is in the Fishing Connection maps book for NW Wisconsin, and there's a Fishing Hot Spots map, too.

I'll check with the bait shops and ask for local advice before we decide which landing to go off of.

Wouldn't want to have to lug that beer, um, bait, too far. grin.gif

Sticka, she'll love it!

KJ:

I've heard about that Eau Claire night bite. Been on Middle Eau Claire a couple times with bites into the night, but Upper is better, I hear, I just don't know the spots there.

As for Nelson, I'll post a meeting time and details closer to that weekend, when I've got a good sense of where the fish are biting so we can figure out which of the several landings to go off of.

Hey all:

Soon as I'm back from the weekend FM.com gathering for lakers at Burntside near Ely, I'll start a thread here to get a roll call for the Nelson lake get-together a week from Saturday.

I'll call around for fishing reports and figure out where it's best to meet. There are several drive-on points at different sections of the lake.

Nelson is known for crappies, nice big pike and walleyes, and is mostly 15 feet deep or less, with a couple places near 18 feet in the old river channel and a 33-foot hole at the east end. There are cribs in lots of placed and sunken timber all over, too. A Fishing Hot Spots map shows you all this. And the lake is stained, with visibility only about 4 feet.

So a person could fish for crappies/walleyes/pike all day near cribs/timber, and maybe go a bit shallower off for an evening walleye bite.

Parking on shore near an access pont isn't really a problem, since we can all drive on. I'm thinking we'd have to pick which end of the lake we're going to go on. While there are accesses for east and west sides, I'm not sure if we want to drive trucks through the narrows to get from one end to the other.

Anyone know if this is safe, or if the current keeps the ice thin?

Meanwhile, while I'm planning to be off to laker land for the weekend, if anyone has specific suggestions about where they think the fishing is best lately on Nelson, sound off! grin.gif

    • 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.
