Launched just before noon. Used the launch next to the break wall and it was fine but the other one is still messed up.
Water stained and temps 40-50.

No perch or crappie to be found. Did land a healthy 6 pound walleye on a crappie jig.

Really that warm?

Was the fish (I assume female) pre or post spawn? That had to be fun on a crappie rig.

Ice was gone as of sunday. With 15 mph winds pretty much in the same direction the warm water was stacked in one area of the lake.
Any water over 10 feet was 40 degrees.

Saw the shape of the fish thougt it was a carp. I think there may have been a few other spawners around. That fish was pre spawn and fat with good shoulders.

Also the creek is stacked with Northerns. More than I have seen in previous years not sure if its the conditions and they are all coming in at once or what but are a bunch.

Went by the Freek this morning and the north side dock is in and the cement has been fixed. There was one boat trailer in the parking lot although I could not see the boat on the lake. Must have been in stealth mode.............

Kind of bumpy looking out there this morning............

It was a small jon boat with three people in it. Not the perfect boat to be out in bumpy water. I did not even notice that the dock was in.
Definitely not looking like a good week wed-sat.
