A nice evening on Independence

4 posts in this topic

My son, and I fished Indy for the first time yesterday afternoon, and evening. We mainly fished around the island throwing everything we had at the muskys, bucktails, topwaters, Suicks, Believers etc. Saw many boils, and a 36" or so jump, but no takers. Water temp was around 67*.

It was still a good evening of quality time in the boat, and you can't beat that!

hey midex!

I was also out on Indep. yesterday....although we fished the morning hours until about 3:00. Had 2 musky followups but no takers. One was fairly thick..possibly a 45"? Caught a few small bass on plastics. Was in the Red old school Lund. Were you possible the folks in the blue boat? smile.gif

Hey Magic!

Glad to hear that you had a couple of follows! We launched around 4:45pm or so, and off the lake around 9pm. We have a tan/black Crestliner. Maybe we'll see ya out there sometime soon!

Good luck!

I think I talked to you out there behind the island, we didn't get one either. Thought for sure those fish would be moving with that storm coming, oh well.

      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.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
