Fishhook

8 posts in this topic

Been trying to get out on Fishhook the past 3 days. The wind and the cold is making that a not so enjoyable expierience. I was out there for a couple of hours today. Fish seem to be pretty inactive. Anyone else having any success.

I was out on Long this afternoon, and the bite was tuff. The fish would pick the bait up and then drop it.

This evening I went out on Fishhook. The bite was really slow out there also.

Fishing is a funny thing. I also fished yesterday (9-26). Fished from 12:30- 3:00 p.m. Picked up one nice eye 21 1/2 inches and two others that went 16 and 14. Redtails in 12-18 FOW. Lost a couple of others just before they got to the boat. Going to try it again on Friday afternoon. Fishing - it's not just for breakfast anymore.

Was at a different honey hole tonight on the Hook. Caught 10 eyes in a little over 2 hours. Mostly 14-17 inch fish. 18-26 FOW using redtails.

As far back as I can remember, yesterday was the first day I fished (10:30 a.m. -6:15 p.m.) a lake and had the entire lake to myself. A very enjoyable time. I saw two other boats but they were headed down the river, probably to be taken out for the year. I managed four walleye (saved one 19" for supper) and plenty of pike (two in the 25-27" range, all released)kept things interesting. Plan to get out there again today to enjoy the serenity.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
