I've been hearing some good reports from rebel hump directly to the northwest of us about 3 1/2 miles out.

I was at Winnie all week. Tried the north shore bite early with little success. Fished the humps Wed- Fri. did very well releasing over 30-walleyes over 17 inches in 3 days. Caught some eating sized fish also. Seemed as though the fish were not on the tops but sides of the humps. Used Lindy/leech exclusively red hook seemed to help. We have never caught so many big fish...it was a blast!

Sounds like you had a good trip. I'm heading up the weekend before the 4th and hope to have that kind of success. I actually caught a few out on the humps the first weekend in June but there were plenty of fish shallow still so I didn't spend much time out there. Did you find any over 26"? Our group has landed some 25" and 26" fish this year but it's rare to see them much bigger than that. One of these times we may actually be on the big lake at the same time. Let me know the next time you are going to be up.

      @YBOutdoors have you tried ice fishing it yet?
    • Hoey
      I really do not do anything different.  I use red UV glow rattle jigging spoons with a minnow head under the Vex.  I use a large fathead on a lightweight, large hook jig under the bobber.

      At this time of the year they are full of eggs and forage.  Not surprised.

      Anyone ice fishing the pike river flowage this year? Main lake or narrows upstream of Hwys 1 or 77? I may go this weekend. Thx
    • Wellesy
      It was pretty "healthy" fish I would say...quite a gut on it.  I'll try and post a pic later.

      So I purchased a 23 inch SUL tickle stick this years model with the white handle ( actually I wanted a 27 inch UL and got home and the rod was a SUL but the box said 27 I’m 200 miles from the store I got it from so can’t juse return it). I got it At the beginning of this season and the very first trip out with it the paint started peeling off the tip. I contacted 13 and they said I had to pay to get a new one because it was my fault and that never happens. That rod has never been abused. I’ve still been using the rod and now about half the paint has come off. I’ve tried sharpie, highlighter. Nothing works the blank of the rod is black so hard for things to show. Has anyone had this issue?

      I use a fish oil that comes in a pump bottle from Menards or FF. This stuff makes a huge difference for my dog. It calls for one tablespoon or 1 pump per 10 lbs so my pup gets 7 or 8 pumps on his kibble.  i also try to run the poor mans humidifier (boiling pot on the stove) on the really cold days. It has been extra cold and dry so far this year though.

       Flooded,  inlet valve is not seating from being warn,  debris in the valve, or improper metering lever height. The later is what I would suspect since you've already had the carb apart.  The meter lever is the link from metering gasket to the inlet valve. This controls the flow of fuel.  That adjustment is normally level with the floor of the carb body.   An incorrect setting will allow fuel to freely flow into the carb with engine off. Or it can starve for fuel not allowing enough fuel into the carb.
