Appledoorn's Full Moon Piggies

7 posts in this topic

Went out for a bit last night with Paul Waldowski out of Appledoorn's Sunset Bay and the bigger fish came out to play. It was fast and furious, well at least as fast as we could bring the piggy in. Thought it was a snag or whatever. Then it moved smile.gif

First off the fish seem to be schooled. Water temp is 49 F. Running speed about 1.3 mph with a #13 Floating Rapala in 7' of water. Again I repeat we went out of Appledoorn's - the launch service they provide is second to none and right now the fishing is pretty darn good.

Here are a couple fish we finally decided to take pics of at the end of the trip.

I'll let you guess their sizes and NO they are not small weed wacker eyes cool.gif

[I have to add: the HSO Arctic Armor camo suit did a nice job on a very cool night (29 F) with water splashing on me I was toasty warm. Call or E-mail WalleyeDan and ask for the HSO Camo suit at:

Here are some pics of the HSO Arctic Armor suit:

      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)
