Back on the lake

14 posts in this topic

With harvest and bear guiding I have been hard pressed to get on the lake. Well yesterday I made it out and took a good look at the situation.

Walleye showed themselves in 5-7 feet of water while jigging very close to small rock pile and the depleting weed beds. Other anglers are landing larger class fish trolling a #5 shad rap in wild colors.

Water temp was 61 degrees and clarity is poor but heavy sediment won't take long to settle once the wind dies off.

We got up at 10am on Friday morning to Big Bog SP, everyone we talked to was pretty excited over the snow. It was cold, Saturday morning my boat was covered in hoarfrost. Didn't get too much time on the big lake, good waves rolling in Friday and Saturday all day. I tried it Saturday late afternoon and early this morning for a couple hours with no success. Caught plenty of 20+" skinny eyes in the river, only one chunky 15" that I ended up setting free after holding hostage in my livewell.

good times, LB

Have to give ya credit blueroof, it was brutal. I was working on a roof and had to wait for the frost to melt off so I could start working. Tough conditions to say the least with the wind and cold.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.

      Ok wanted to try fishing Tulibee icefishing but just have run out of time, my question is it possible to fish them in the summer? And the best way to do it? Thanks!!!!

      30 inch walleye 40 inch pike 50 inch musky 11 inch gill already have Got one about 10 3/4. And large mouth I'm good with at about 24 inches around 6lb. Definlety well worth the wait when that monster comes to the surface. Nothing better!

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.
