Hi! Was out in the afternoon yesterday on Yellow with about a hundred other boats. My 8 yr old was with. We caught a few walleyes, most of them small. Did manage to get a couple about 18". Also several northerns, a few perch and a couple nice sunnies. Not superfast action, but decent start to the year.
How did others do?

Fished Mendota in the madison chain for walleyes and ended up getting a pretty mixed bag today. Water is very clear so trolled boards in 5-10 feet hoping to find fish warming themselves, unfortunately it was cloudy and cool. Found some water that was 49-51 degrees and that's where the fish were concentrated around bait fish schools. Saw some big hooks on depth finder but didn't land anything of any size. 4 walleyes 17-18", 4 smallies, 1 largemouth and 2 northerns. Nothing big at all. Fish seemed to prefer 3" baits in the perch color.
Fished a Bass tourney on Lake Monona yesterday and caught a few keepers on worms and spinner baits, one 3 pounder. Fish are spooky with the lack of cover (weeds that is) and if they saw us first they wouldn't bit. Not on beds yet but getting ready a lot of fish shallow.

Fished the Chippewa Flowage all weekend. No eyes, a few pike. Casted cranks, live bait rigs, jigs...nothin was happening. Everyone else I talked to said things were slow for them too.

Fished a Waukesha Co. lake for the musky opener and put 3 in the boat including a hefty 45". Not many fish moving, but the ones that were active, were eating. It sure is great to cast again!

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
