i put in at cove about quarter past noon or so. it was nice. the vehicle traffic that has been there so far this year wasnt there today. parking was still pretty packed. i just started heading out toward spirit island going slow to see if i could mark any fish to see what depths...or a fishable school. it seemed like 21.5ft was the ticket. at 3 i released a 14" that would of been my fourth keeper. well, its the old saying, "one in the pan is better than two in the bush." i fished until about 7 and released a nice 20-1/2" & healthy 25". i never did get that 4th keeper... i just couldnt go back in after only fishing a little over 2 hours... the bugs were a nussance when there was no wind. but when the wind blew a little they went away. it blew from the south then switched to the north...still not much of one. i was using about a 9ft snell, red hook (that was gold when i quit...) and a chartreuse bead with a jumbo leech. i didnt try anything else because i was content catching what i did.

regards,

      when i fish for pike or muskie i use 40-50lb braid and an 80# fluoro leader about 12" that I make myself...never had a bite-off and have reused leaders over and over again...oh, and have caught plenty with this set up

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.

      There's a few really good cat spots in that stretch.  It won't be long and it will all be open.
