Pokegama report- Labor day weekend

2 posts in this topic

Fishing on Pokie from Friday to Monday was very good. During the day, the smallies and largemouth were very active on large sucker minnows in 14-20 fow. The key was to be on winblown structure with lots of baitfish action. My five year old got to reel in a 19' bass and several nice pike. I trolled cranks each of the 4 nights for walleye and had consistent actionfrom about 10pm-1am. Again, windblown structure was the key. I caught fish from 4-14' of water over weeds, rocks and sand, on the tops of flats and the edges. Speed was 1.6-1.8 and HJ12s and HJ14s in clown and white/pink were the best colors. I had my brother-in-law with me one night and a friend another. In total we caught 28 over the 4 nights. Size was 15-28 but most were 21-25. My brother-in-law caught the very fat 28 which was the biggest fish he had ever caught and his biggest walleye by a long shot. I've always liked the lake, but I'm loving it now. Ever since I spent time with Dan the guide and got the gps chip for my gps, my success hs greatly improved. Any other reports?

gkl, I have not been out for a few days now, but last time out I did get my biggest brown bass of the year, a little over 20", scaled at about 5 1/4 pounds. I got a new septic system put in so I have been dealing with that, looking forward to hit it hard this week, the fishing that is.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
