Tom tell him that they are a snappin. Did the rigger thing yesterday in search of food fish and they were on, lots and lots of fish from cigar size to 23 inchers. Fished today with Toddb and it was another great day. Longlining the plugs today for the BIG girls around the rocks. I'm e-ing Todd pics, he's got some on his camera too and he will be posting a report tonite or tomorrow.

Ahhh finally some fair and stable weather and the fish are happy, making us happy too!

Good goin, Todd and Fisky, awesome fish. Glad you are outa your slump, Norm!! I was on the water Mon-Wed and fishing was very, very good. Kinda weird tho--some spots were void that usually produce this time of year. Monday, the Knight reefs were slow but the rocks further north and west were loaded. Tuesday, Arnesons was empty (boats and fish) but other west side rocks were rockin. Baitfished until they moved out then pulled the white #11 a little deeper and got into some biggies. A snake stole that #11. Paints drying on a new one! Wednesday, the LP reefs were empty but the mud to the east was really good--lots of size and decent numbers.

Norm, that 34' stuff we longlined in last year was pretty much empty--but it's time for that to load up. I'll shoot you a mail next time I come up alone--heading to Rainy the next couple days.

Nice Piggies Fisky and Todd!!

My Dad and I will be up this weekend fishing out of Arnesens. We will be in a black and platinum 2010 Pro Guide. Swing over and say hi if you see us.

Fisky,

Do you know what channel everyone runs on the radio? I did not make it up to the get-together, hopefully next year the wifey and I will be able to make it up again. If you are out fishing Saturday or Sunday look us up or just hooler on the radio.

Later

Brian, most of the chatter on the west side is on 6. Walleyejon and Pat the "Old Guide" would surely talk with ya. Pat goes by "Powerful Magic" and some of the other charecters from FM should be out.

I gots a trip out this afternoon, doubt I'll get out over the weekend as Mrs Fisky would maybe have a cow as I have'nt been around the house much this past week!!!

You and your Dad are gonna have a good weekend. May wanna bring sunscreen!

Pulled around a coupla rock piles with nothin. Finally found a few fish to make the day fine. SRJ started it off with a fat 26+ first fish which ended up the biggy for the day.

Well here is my report from the weekend. And what an awesomeone it was. We longlined cranks arounds the reefs on Saturday, and ended up with a 23", 26.5", 27", 28.5", and a 29.25". Man we had a blast on the big pond. We caught 12 fish total an Saturday. On sunday we ate breakfast and waited for a storm to roll across the lake. We did not get out to fish the spot we caught the big girls at, and only managed two smaller fish Sunday morning. All in all it was an great weekend.

We were out on Saturday and Sunday pulling balls. Only went out 1-2 miles on Sat. due to the forecasted 10-25 mph winds (which didn't get to 25 thankfully). Had OK numbers on Sat. but generally smaller (1 - 25"). Sunday was a pretty good day with nice 17-19" keepers and another 25" for fun. We waited until the wind settled down in early afternoon and could then go anywhere. Went out 6 miles and trolled around some rocks. It took awhile to find the right depth and right color but after a couple of hours we figured it out and had a fun next couple of hours.

Made it out today and man was it hot! Fishing was pretty good all around. I talked with Fisky, TravisC, and ccmonsr over a couple cold ones and it sounded like they had a pretty good day also. Lots of fish being caught on top of the reefs along with some edge fish popping the TD-11's today. I do know one thing, I am ready for a cold front. A couple pics from today

Yesterday for me was slow. Did manage a nice 27.5", 25" and a half dozen low slots, along with 3 eaters and a few dinks. Lots of boats on Arnesens, and it looked like alot were being caught up on top.

Two of us had fair day today, we used copper spinners, crawlers and bottom bouncers. Fished out from the rocks in 30-32.5 fow. Threw back a 24+" and a 20". Were filled out by noon with some perfect sized eaters. We launched at Arnesen's.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems. 
    • Jim Uran
      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
