Fishing with Jonny P July 8th

Recommended Posts

Pikester

Sorry for the late report. I headed up to Red Lake before Moondance Jam to get in a little guide trip with Jonny P. And once again it was the same ol' story...huge Pike! We casted for Northerns on some of the weed lines and ended up with 2 Trophy class Pike just under 40". Both fish were released to fight another day. Later on in the day we found ourselves a nice little hole for some wallys and ended up with our limit or eaters which West Winds cooked up for us, AWESOME. The water was a little rough that day and I ended up losing my lunch over the boat, which I am sure Ill never hear the end of it from Kelly and Jonny. Thanks again Jonny for the awesome experience and for teaching this rookie how to use a bait caster. If any of you reading the forum are thinking about booking a trip, stop thinking and do it. You will not regret and make sure you bring the camera for all those monster Pike.

      Most likely our last trip up this year unless we go up for crappies but i'm running out of weekends. We had another great trip this weekend the fish are so fat this year more than I remember in the past.  Got my old man out for a good walleye bite he had a blast and caught a ton of fish. One day they just attached the bait as it was coming down they would come up and smash. Next day you put in the bottom and not even see the lure on the vex bring up a tad and they would smack it. Fun and a lot of snow hitting yesterday when we left.

      Agreed!!

      Switch to regular Budweiser and they seem to just jump out of the hole. No, seriously the way I improved my landing success through the ice was to go to small treble hooks. One small one on a 6' leader, a weight and Colorado blade above the leader seems to work for me. If you are on the flag right away, you don't risk gut-hooking them. I also recycle my Power Pro musky line and put it on tip ups. Also, I should add that I always  have a jaw-spreader and 8" forceps for quick and easy hook removal.

      Funny...seems like when the Emerald run slowed down up there 4-5 years ago, the fishing followed suit!

      they only ran for a couple days.  They have them on the canadian side but its illegal to transport live bait across the border

      Cliff - much more than the 4-6" they were predicting.  It was a tired drive back to Blaine late Saturday night, but would have been a much tougher drive back Sunday.

      Tough to follow Ricks Gilly Gilly, but might as well get it out of the way.... My best one today, was a grind until prime time, then the bite was lights out until 6pm. I couldn't pull myself away from my hole....

      Green was ok for me I used all kinds of baits. Nothing would bite before it got dark. I caught some on plastics, waxies, and minnows were hot. I was in 27-28 feet. It was nice to sit in the house as I normally do not fish in it.

      Nice fish Paul, persistence usually pays off..... What worked to put those good ones on the ice? Any tips on structure, depth, time of day? And of coarse coordinates,
