ice/fishing report

Recommended Posts

Hi!
Went to Yellow first this am. Still had ice on half of it so I didn't fish there. Ice looked like it we be gone by the end of today. Went to a small lake south of Yellow and picked up 15 crappie, most about 10". It was nice to see them biting already, didn't know what to expect. About 8' of water, sw (sheltered) side of the lake.
Looked like all lakes south of Webster were clear or would be clear of ice before the end of this hot, windy day.
Time to go get 'em guys!

Hi Again!

Took my eight year old yesterday to try for crappies in the Siren area. Tried a souple of lakes, but we only got one crappie on each . All we need is some warmer days!

Happy Easter to All!

Hi Again!
Went fishing Friday with Pigsticka and my 4 year old. Went to 5 different lakes in Polk and Burnett county. Caught crappies on two of the lakes, just a few bass and northerns (accidently) on the other three. The couple lakes we found them on, once we found them, we'd have times we were catching them on every cast.
Most were running either side of 10". We kept trying different lakes trying to find the bigger crappies but nothin' doin' yet for them. Kept about 15 and let the rest go.
Must be still a little early, but they're out there if you work at it. The ones we found were in 6 to 8 feet of water.

I was able to fish the morning today with my 4 year old again. We ran into a few crappies on Yellow. Slow bite, but caught about 15 in 6 hours. Kept 9 for dinner.
Also caught a walleye about 18" and a couple 21" northern.
They're still acting like it's early.
Good Luck!

How deep were you fishing on Yellow? I'm heading up for the opener this weekend and am very excited. Thanks in advance for the reply.

Hi CarlSpackler!
I was fishing mainly four to eight feet and had to do a lot of searching. This weekend should be fun but I'm sure you'll have a lot of company (crowded). Good Luck! Let us know how you do!

    • 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.

    • nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    • The greenhouse experiment this year has paid off for me. I got to plant about a month earlier than I usually do.
    • They sound like they got cold, I planted too soon years back and had the same thing. I bought smaller new plants that out performed the stunted ones. It took about a month before they started growing again. The heat at the end of this week should help them out.
    • Not really. My cukes are going well. Got 3 tomato plants that look like they don't wanna do anything though!!??
    • That's a heck of a nail driver you got there!  😉
