Dead Calm Saturday

3 posts in this topic

Tried out a couple lakes today - Beautiful day to be on the lakes. I was with my family (5 in the boat) so tried an old standby and got plenty of pike and sunnies to satisfy the family.

But when we got to Lida and started fishing in earnest for Walleye it seams the calm moved the fish elsewhere. I tried breaks from 14 down to 30 feet. I saw fish but no activity.

Did anyone else have any success during the calm day? What depth? Where do you generally go when the wind goes down?

we did pretty good...had to do some weeding out the small ones. Cuz was fishing a bobber and catching them and I was using a jig and minnow. We both had luck we were anchored and doing very well till the bait ran out. We wereoff the lake by noon.

I am out on Lida almost every day (especially during the weekends). Just as you said Lida has shut down in the 'walleye holes'. I managed to catch some, but they were definitely not anywhere you would normally fish. And the ones we caught we in the slot so we had to throw them back anyway.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
