4 Pictures from this Week

2 posts in this topic

Our past few trips for channel cats have been frustrating. We caught 3 this evening with a 19”er in addition to the 2 pics below. We tried Gulp, Power Bait, chicken liver, nightcrawlers, and cut redhorse. The Gulp got no attention; the PB had a bite or two. I’m not a believer in that processed stuff quite yet.

Crazyice - 17”

I spent Sunday morning on the Lake fishing with whole kernel sweet corn. It was a slow go with only 3 bites providing 1 fish. This is what a 12lb-5oz carp looks like. 8 minute fight on Medium to Medium Heavy gear.

This is the 2nd time (of 2) I’ve had a slow day carping fishing on Lake Zum. I’m not sure what it is about that lake, but the fish don’t seem to be very attracted to corn. Might have to throw them a curve ball next time.

      The DNR has tried introducing lake trout into several lakes in the past 10 years or so. Most attempts have been unsuccessful (hanging horn lake for example). DNR recently increased the number of lakers stocked in big trout, but numbers are continuing to decline. I would have rather seen them cut back on the numbers stocked into burntside as opposed to stopping it altogether. The heavy fishing pressure and the predation by smelt is a tough 1-2 combo for lakers to deal with.

      Did anyone try holland on opener, or any day since? Just wondering if anyone had any luck.

      My brother hammered walleyes and perch . Him and his friend ended up with 70 eyes caught and kept their limit and had 30 perch from 6 feet of water.

      My old man and I had fun time today even though he only added 5 gills and one crappie. I schooled my old man but we enjoyed fresh fish No worries no gills over 8 inches kept or crappies over 12
