Double A

Dead Calm Saturday

Question

Double A

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.

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.
