Things started off fast, boated a 17" eye within a couple minutes and then it got painfully slow for about a hour or so then picked up a few shorties, just couldn't get a decent one, so off to bottom bouncing and bang theres one 16 1/4" and bang theres another 17 1/2" then nothing and so I pulled up one rod and put down some lead core and a tiger pattern shad rap and bang a 21 1/2 " which I released but not before I took a photo, check out its weird eye? PICT0148.jpg picked up one more shorty and called it a day, I'll be back on the water in the morning. Finished the day with three decent ones and a nice releaser plus caught a couple nice smallies and of course sheep! cool.gif

What a beatiful morning to be on the river and the fish were biting so so, nice to see Sandmannd and Big Wade out there, had a goood time talking with you guys, so did that spot pan out for you? I picked up one more straight out from the buffs before I split, not as nice as the other three but still a 17", heck if I wouldn't of tossed the two legal but smaller ones I'd of had my limit! cool.gif

Walli,

It was nice visiting with you again. That spot didn't pan out for us, lots of bites but couldn't pinpoint the hook-set, except for Sandman's lawn chair he got on a spinner and then his blue gill. Have to only guess it wasn't our day, but then again it was sure nice to get out on the river again, talking to you was proof there are still fish there, so I just have to get out and try again. Hope to see you out there again soon.

Hey Walli,

Nice seeing you again. Thanks for the pointers and letting us fish along side you. Nice to get tips from a river pro like you. I really liked when you showed us your catch and all I could hold up was my zebra muscle covered lawn chair. Oh yea Wade, you forgot about the 10 lb log I hooked into, that was a nice bite. I think my favorite was yelling for the net only to have the lawn chair come up. It sure did fight though. We both saw a flash of a fish on that one and then it dove down so my guess is it hooked me into the chair since I don't think they usually bite on crawlers.

Ah dang, that just reminded me of the one time I thought I hooked fish and when I finally brought it out, it was a nother fishing rod...Weird thing was it was swimming and fighting and then nothing, but dead weight after I was yelling for the net. call it a magic trick, but I never yell for the net anymore. I just keep the net close by.

We were out Sunday morning as well. Boated 4 walleyes and 1 sauger, all running shad raps on lead core. Nothing on live bait though, the bait bite for me has come to a screeching halt, seems they are on more of a plug bite as of late. At least in the spots I fished Friday and Sunday...Might get out Tuesday evening for a while.

      Wow that is a little discouraging. Looked at the DNR lake info for the last survey which was done on Big Trout lake in 2011. Not one Laker was caught in any of the test net types! Still shows their stocking them but none showed up. Anyone try it on opener and find any Lakers?

      Anyone go out there last weekend for opener? If so how was the ice and the bite? Giving this weekend a thought?

      I personally like the cold and dont mind it. But this week is a nice change and prob wont help the ice building much!

      So how did you do last weekend?

      I remembered I wrote this question. So I'm replying back. I was lucky enough to have a relative who had a Smith and Wesson Model 66-2 .357 mag (mint condition) that he was willing to part with. I haven't shot it yet. Been busy. Anyway now what recommendations are out there for 38 shells for plinking. I've read about the problems if using to heavy a load. Thanks
