Has the downrigging started yet?

2 posts in this topic

Just wondering if people have started to downrig yet? Are the fish out deeper now? What are the hot plugs this year to run behind the riggers?

Thanks!

I was on the lake Thursday/Friday and did see a few boats downrigging-one charter for a short time. But I didn't see any netting and the few boats trolling were making long runs--didn't appear to be on fish. Before I quit late Fri morning, I scoped a lot of deep mud and saw very few fish. Nothing worth dropping the balls for sure. Boats were coming and going from reef to reef bait fishing. That was fair but some reefs were empty. Things could be different eastward but my neighbors around Bostic haven't been doing real well and a lot of charters had been running to Little Traverse looking for cleaner water. Ready for things to start hoppin!!

Good luck

      Jayden,   Hey I grew up in Austin! I know of some great places to camp in Ontario if your interested. You would need to bring your own boat 16' would be fine, but it can be done super cheap! I normally camp with a good group of guys and it costs about $250 a week per person. That includes all gas and food for the trip!

           I work during day and live 2 miles from Blue lake ... i get home and hop on the 4 wheeler and have about 1 hour to fish.   The access on the lake is to darn deteriorated ... will see if things firm up next week, 60 and sunny today is the forecast.  Gonna be a close one even if it cools down next week.   We shall see ... Boy does ice fishing help winter pass fast (if that is possible)
