No wake was lifted this morning. Winds we howling today. Water is warming up quick. Fished with dad from 7:30 til 2:30 but no bites after 11:00. Sorted thru alot of small crappies. Still have eggs in their bellies.

Thanks for the 411 Paul. Your little spot should be starting up shortly. We are taking a break on the pannies this year. Want to focus on lake Michigan and troll 4 fox chain eyes.

I've been spending a lot of time fishing with my dad the last couple years and he isn't healthy enough to stand up and cast for bass all day and would much rather fish for pannies. I'm going to make another attempt at bass tourneys starting next week. I'm almost 18 month post op from the last shoulder surgery. Shoulder is still messed up but better than it was. I'm good for about 3-4 hours of casting before I can't do it anymore. Hoping that combining the casting with flipping jigs, I can last 8 hours on the water..

The bluegills should be gearing up to spawn in another few weeks. Easy pickings:)2

I didn't know you can only catch bass standing up. Too many rules for fishing. Try sitting down it's just for pleasure,

Dad is a live bait fisherman. About the only time he will throw a crankbait is in Sturgeon Bay

Heard most bass fisherman have roids that's why they always are standing.

Hey 2sac, ever consider an electric filet knife?
I always had problems {self inflicted} with regular knives..
.
After I switched to a quality electric knife, I get much better results.

I bought a Rapala electric knife last year. Used it a couple times Just can't get used to it. Not like there was a whole lot of fish to clean.

I have one of those Rapalas too. I agree. Good on theory, seen lots of guys use them very well, myself I've never used mine.
Strike that, I did use it once in up in the Northwoods on Eyeballs worked pretty good, then you have to clean it...

I also have a Cutco fillet knife that works real nice. Hardly ever used that too.

I guess, like the Chulas I'm more a catch and release guy :)35
