its just past 10 as im watching the boats come into hunterspoint on their cam. im smoking a cigar before i clean fish. got on the water about half past noon. at 3 i missed the 4th keeper and it took until 6 to get it. what a fun day! i got (2)27's, a 24 to 25, a 22 to 23, a 21 to 22, the four keepers and 2 little ones. i put in at eddys and fished near spirit island. the first two keepers came on silver hammered spinner w/green nightcrawler. the second two came on jumbo leeches, red hook & chartreuse bead. the leader started out almost 12'. by the time i had to re-tie, it was down to 6 or 7'. i lost a few from broken leaders...might go back to 6# fireline. i was using 6# gamagatsu copolymer. they were in about 21' to 18' just off transitions. this is one of the two best times of the year. hope you can enjoy it. good luck to all!

regards,

I was out there also. We fished the northeast side. On the way up we were wondering why the south side was so packed, realized why once we got up there and saw the size of the waves. Fished 7am-3pm. Me and my dad only managed 2 keepers and a half dozen in the protected slot and 2 real small ones. We were working the mud off of 2 mile reef.

      I want to give an honest review of Steve and north county auto. He saw my post on here of a fisherman in need and offered his service. I looked around and could have taken my hub to get repaired at multiple places closer to me than Crystal, but decided to give another fisherman a try.    This was a perfect experience.  He was willing to meet me outside of normal business hours to accommodate my schedule. The stitch up appears totally solid (double stitched) and Steve even warranteed the repair. The price was more than fair and he's a nice guy to boot.    I'd definitely recommend this place if you're in need of canvas repair. He does a bunch of other things for the open water fisherman as well.    My apologies if this somehow violates any rules on the forum (I never looked) but my experience was a good one and wanted to pass it along.

      We did not go all the way out this weekend so I can't say for sure where 'most' were fishing.  Since you can literally go anywhere, there were no real "concentrations" of houses that I saw.  Everyone was spread out real nice except I did see quite a few houses fishing in closer to Pine, near the snowmobile trail, based on the distance (maybe a mile or mile and a half out?) I would guess they were "shallow" and not out to the basin.  Distance can be tough to judge so this is my approximation.   Some friends road sleds WAY north and were surprised that shortly after they set up a suburban came from the south and fished near them.  Like I was saying people are spread out.   Adrian's road now only goes out 11.5 vs. the 16 miles they were out a week ago.   Good Luck!

      Was on the boat Sunday got a little further past the 49 bridge. Is the 22 landing opening up at all? Anyone know how much ice is even out there? I would think we made a little.
