June 10-12 report. Lost rod as well!

1 post in this topic

Fished with 2 other guys in my boat for about 22 hours over the 3 days. Caught at least 20 keepers and 40 walleyes over 20". Largset was 27 7/8". Best locations were deep rock, had one flat also that was good. Minnows and leeches both worked great at different times.

A buddy of mine lost one of my rod and reel combos he was using. We were at 4 mile rock (north of Sloppy Joe's). He was fishing out of the front of the boat. He sat the rod down, just for a few seconds, to get a drink of water.

A fish hit and took the rod down to the 29 foot depths!

Too bad it was a nice Shimano Calcutta reel,the rod was a modest Cabela's E-Glass though.

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
