Tough decision

6 posts in this topic

I have a tough decision fella's. My bride gave me a "hall pass" for Sat. afternoon and all day Sunday. I live in the south 'burbs - Will the drive to ML be worth it; is the fall bite on? Muskies/Walleyes? Or should I chase roosters? confused.gif

I would get up to The Pond. Start trolling HJ's and Shad Raps. Things s/b picking up. Especially if the weather turns around.

If you get up there- a word of caution "hang on- the piggys are getting hungry" grin.gif

Get to the pond, dude. You can shoot roosters for months still.

Thanks for the help. The question remains: Is the fall bite on?

If yes, see you on the pond. If no, I'm heading south.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
