Good luck Kraig, maybe I'll see you before I leave.

Hope to run into you  ;) I will be parking in the same parking spot that you will be in. I hope she catches some to keep her hooked on hardwater. She already loves open water  ;D

Oldbear......you should have come up!!! We really got into the yellows. I would guess our little group caught between 100-150 yellows. Some were really nice ones around the 12 inch mark and alot of 8 inchers. I tell ya you still get a nice hunk of meat off the 8 inches!! Only two bonus keeper walleyes were caught.

We were between the point west of the island and farmers. This was my first trip there on the ice and I need to go there more. We started just east of the island and only had one guy catch a keeper walleye, 21". It was a blast and those yellows really put up a fight. I don't know how many I lost at the bottom of the hole trying to get them turned up it.

Ed.....fished the same spot today we caught fish at yesterday and only marked one fish!! We went over and turned Gilmore's into swiss cheese and never found nothing there either. I noticed alot of the permanents are leaving Farmers and everywhere else and stacking up north of the Island.

I'm sure glad we went yesterday. Maybe the pressure is starting to get to them, there were a lot of people out there yesterday!

heading up there in about 30 min.  Going to try NW to N of the island.  Hopefully will get some.  We will be in a black frabill flip over.  It is a new one.  It is comfortable to fish in but a BEAR to pull out on the ice.

Saturday evening we setup NW of the island. Caught alot of walleye, but they were all just a little short. Son had one in the hole that would have been a keeper, but it came unbuttoned and made it back down.  Good luck crappie98

Started out NW of the Island today in 12 foot of water.  Went out to where some moron decided that since his lantern glass was broke he woudl just leave the whole thing on the ice.  Fished there for about 1 1/2 hours with no luck saw one bluegill on the camera that was it nothing on the vex.  Moved to the west I believe that is farmers bay not sure the old man knows what everything is called.  Drove out there fished for another 2 hours with no bite at all.  Decided to call it a day.
