Trolling, Jigging, Rigging weekend

1 post in this topic

Fished the North Star Summer Classic Friday and Saturday.

Breezy on Friday but not so much you couldnt fish where

you wanted to. Mike Lindholm and I trolled with

downriggers, lead core and fireline and caught decent fish

all 3 ways. We also fished rocks with bouncers and leech

rigs. Mike is a boat control master, we were in my boat

but I had him at the helm, it's fun to watch someone

that good at work (its also quieter in the boat). Several

fish in the 26 inch range and many 22-23 24 inch catagory,

many smaller fish and fish in the 16 inch range were real


2 choices, rocks or open water. Be ready for both and

if the weather is decent fishing ought to be great.

I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
