Putting on the feedbag!

5 posts in this topic

Fish are really starting to put on their feedbags as the fishery heads into arguably the best "BIG FISH" period of the year. Don't be afraid to fish larger baits this time of year as bigger fish will be looking to put some weight on for the upcoming winter. FYI you don't have to head to the east end for big walleyeys! Shhh! Greatest time of year right here boys! One stop had some beautiful rainbows on hand yesterday! I traded several in for several slot fish yesterday. I swear some of those Rainbows had fear in there eyes as they were lowered to the marble eyed lurkers. Send your kids off to school and load up the boat this is big fish time! Good Fishing!

Thats Awesome!

I bet he was fired up! I've been on the water the past several days, and need to get a few things shored up here around the house. I guided over the weekend, and can't wait to get out again asap! Yep that is truly a great area. Don't think for a second that I haven't been pinpointing a few locations for the permanent come this winter either! Congrats Buddy! That is a fish to be proud of, and you know how tough a true 10lb fish can be to come by. How many inches?

      I would say gas augers are still getting better. For example my solo engine always starts never leaks and emissions are very very low. I don't think I burned a half gallon of gas the whole winter and I drilled maybe 500 holes max still not a lot but pretty good for only using a cup or so of fuel an outing. Not saying electrics are bad but for me I just can't pull my self away from the convince of gas. Every winter I think I do give more and more respect to cordless drill or electric set ups. Well then also with this last winter we had a goo full 24 inches of ice for maybe 3 weeks this it starting melting fast

      I like the electrics too but it will be a necessity for me to finally give up my gasser for good.  One tank on it can cut many, many holes.  Batteries are expensive so I don't plan on buying extras for those days I plan to explore.   I think it was mentioned on the forums before: With the mapping apps and gps we have available now, we probably all drill fewer holes over the season than we used to.  The problem I have though is I don't repeat locations many times over the winter. Heck, not even lakes that often.  I've been carrying the gas, electric and hand auger pretty much all winter.

      There are still the guys that argue up and down about electrics but they are getting fewer and fewer. They are all very strong people though,I wouldn't want get into a fight with anyone that drills 200 holes a day and carries around a 35# + auger
