My weekend report

1 post in this topic

We fished for 6 hours Friday. It was a beautiful slight wind day. We hit Doe island and Hawkbill point for smallies. Didn't do very well. We threw tubes,cranks,top water and live bait. This area of the lake had alot of boats around it fishing bass and musky. We trolled no mans land for 1 1/2 hours with deep tail dancers.(nothing) We marked tons of bait fish out around the mud. We seen a few boats on top of the Blue Jug and that was it. Some in our group fished sloppys Friday night from 9 to 1:00 am. 2, walleye 26" and one missed bite. Another boat went to Rocky Reef. 1, 8" walleye and a small perch.

Saturday was windy,rainy and cool. I fished from 8:30am to 11:30. I was driving across hawkbill reef when my hat flew off for the second time. Picked it up and looked at my graph and was marking fish. I was in 21ft of water. Tried anchoring and bobber fishing. Caught perch. Anchor was having a hard time keeeping me in place. I should have drifted with the sea anchors or trolled some cranks but deciced to get out of the wind/rain. It was pretty slow fishing. I didn't see one boat pull in a fish. There was a small group of boats fishing the east side of hennipen island. Looked like they were anchored. Otherwise everyone was moving around alot.

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
