We hit several lakes this weekend.

We caught some decent slabs and a few gills plus some nice eyes.

Nice going, Gents. The bride and I fished Big Sandy on Saturday for about 4 hours. Caught about 30 walleyes (small) and several nice crappies, the biggest 1 lbs. 7 ounces. The fish really turned on during the afternoon breeze that kicked up for awhile. Fishing should just keep getting better.

No I do not.I'm running 13-18 FOW just off of the deep water until almost dark.Then I'll slide up to 9-11FOW.

I troll 1.3-1.45 in the deeper stuff and 1.7mph in the shallower water.

Oh and use a 1/4 oz head.

Thanks Keith. One more thing. Would you think this technique would work on any of the area lakes at this time of year or is it unique to the lake you are fishing?

It works on every lake I've tried it plus I've gotten reports that others have tried it & it is working for them too.

I've gotten eyes and anything else with teeth on

(Contact Us Please),Round,Waukenabo,French,Gun,Big Sandy,Wilkins,Section 10&12,Sissabagamah,Rabbit,Clear,Dam,Long,Rat,Flemming,Farm&Elm Island,Ripple,Hanging Kettle,Pine,Cedar.

I've used them up in the BWCAW too with great success.

It comes down to what color that lake likes and speed of your troll.I should also say I've drilled eyes in the rivers around here too.

It may take us to go fishing so I can help you build your confidense level.

Hey crappie, great info. Are you imparting a snap jigging action or any other kind of action when you troll those plastics.

Nope,well sometimes ,but mostly I'll sort of long line it & hold my tip up.When I feel the pip I'll drop my tip & then set.

I have not been to Rat since last winter.The fish there with all of the weeds shy my off.

Here's a few from tonight on those plastics.

I had my Dad & Boyd out tonight.

They had a ball with many eyes boated.

Boyd wanted to fish his way until he saw 15 or so then he switched and he started to drill them 1 after another.

They are sorta small for the most part ,but the action was as fast as catching sunnies.

Sorry for the late post. Have not been on the website for awhile. Got the crappies & walleyes on the north end on a rock pile. It's usually consistant all year here, at least for the eyes. 13-20 feet of water. Will be in the BWCA this weekend then back to Big Sandy for 4 days the following weekend. Can't wait. You guys certainly are the king fishing dinks. I wish I got out as much as you guys do. tongue.gif

I gave up my life in Mpls back in 87 to do this.

Being able to hunt/fish whenever did not come cheaply.

This is my life ,it's not for everyone ,but if I can share some things to help I will.

Boy she got chilly,almost making ice.

Those eyes are on the feed bag!

About 3 years ago I used it out in front of Sheshebe and I drilled them that whole winter while the slabs were there in that 16 FOW.

I've got an old red Lund Pretator with a white tiller 50hp Johnson on it and usually have my two black & white English Setters aboard, if you see me on Big Sandy, cruise in and say hi. I'm going to the BWCA tomorrow but will be back up to the ranch for 4 days the following weekend, and most weekends after that.

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Here is some more dirty ice armor fish pics..... todays beast, released to fight again

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.

      Who’s worried about a jacket showing proof of action when the catching is that good?! 
    • eyeguy 54
      yes indeed, its fun when they fight back. lol .  the cgi's got a workout! I put a jar of the secret bait in my red box as soon as I got home.     BWAAAAA HAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ! ! ! 
    • leech~~
      Nice fish. That jacket Tho!
