Don't tell me that the rain kept ALL of you off the river this weekend! It's Sun nite and by now there is usually a pretty good post of people and there weekend stories. Maybe we are all alittle down after losing to the Cheese-Heads!

I made it out yesterday a.m. and got a couple hours of trolling in before the skys opened up on me and the wind kicked up twenty notches. I was near Prescot when those storms moved in and thought that maybe I could hide under the bridges there and wait it out. WRONG!! It rains harder underneth them than outside cause they are just metal grates. Anyways, I knew the cover on my boat would come in handy one of these days and it did it job perfectly. I was able to troll around and hide out under it and barely needed a rain suit. I did stay around the bridges for awhile, atleast until the lightning died down.

Getting the fish to bite was a different story. I didn't get a single bite before or during the rain. I was trolling and I tried several different baits and depths, but no dice.

After a small lull in the rain I switched to drifting a spinner rig with a worm. I did pick up a nice sized channel cat and a 14.5 inch walleye like this. Then the wind kicked up to 25-30mph and the rain came back so I cut outta there. All in all it was a wet and unsuccessful day, but it bets the tar outta working!

      I have the Milwaukee m18 fuel hammer drill, 5ah batteries, never worried about keeping them warm last year and never had a problem.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
