How far out? Why sheephead?

Recommended Posts

Few quick questions for the AWESOME WASKISH CREW...

1. Next week we are hoping to come up midweek...how far out do we need to go to get tathebiguns? Waldoes and Pikesters?

2. Why do angler catch sheephead during the summer and not in the winter. We've made 6 or 7 trips in Kelly P's houses and never hooked a sheeper.... grin.gif

Thanks for the help!

Seeing as we catch eelpout in the winter but not in the summer maybe the sheepshead morph into eelpout when the waters cold? grin.gif

Do the 'pout enter the triangle and let the sheephead out????? We accidentally donated a rod and reel to the triangle last year...we didn't notice until we got home to put the gear away for the year crazy.gifcrazy.gif

How's the weather been up there? If we make it up next week on Tuesday and Wednesday, could our crew buy a brew for ya at Westwinds?

After reading all the posts here over the past few years, I would guess it has something to do with the seals and the fish they are herding in a particular season. shocked.gif

My theory; Eeelpout prefer cold water with easy chow, well in the summer the cold deeper water is on the other side of the lake, eelpout can go there but we cannot.

Sheephead become very dormant under ice and like to feed on little bugs and mini minnows you find those in the deep water during winter.

So I believe a major migration takes place come fall and spring, sheephead one way and pout the other way.

Well the Waldos own Westwinds normaly you can find them working around the place, do not be fooled by the Marty when looking for the Waldos, looks like he is working around Westwind but really is not.

As for the Pikester, he normally shows up about first ice then migrates back south about late March.

Big eyes are super shallow and big BIG pike are cruising the open water 13-15'

One of these years Pikester is gonna forget about his migration trip south and stay in Waskish.
