11/3 & 11/4 Report

4 posts in this topic

Saturday the saugers were still pounding crankbaits with a few walleye mixed in. The saugers generally being bigger than the eyes. Switched it up a little jigging some 3" Gulp! Minnows while slowly moving with the trolling motor. Caught mostly whities on top of the breaks while the saugers and eyes would take it as soon as I would move over the drop. Key depth was 15-18 ft. The average size was smaller this weekend but did get a nice 20" sauger.

Sunday was bonus couple hour outing with the wife. I decided to go with the Gulp! Minnows and Minnow Grubs since that would produce the most action to keep the wifes mind on the fish and off the cold as the sun started to go down. In about an hour and a half we got 16 whities a sauger and a walleye.

      Fished Cannon lake this evening. I bounced around from 12-5ft of water and started to mark fish in 8ft so I set up there until dark. I saw a bunch of fish come in for a look but not one nibble. Tried every color and style spoon and jig I had but nothing.

      Best thing you can do if you won't be around is to put the house on fresh ice, don't drill any holes, and put it on blocks.  When people get into trouble is if it gets windy and they have open holes under the house, that rain starts blowing around on top of the ice, and starts swirling down into the holes under the house....that swirling water EATS ice, and can sink a house pretty quick.     As as far as the ice on the lakes, if you have 14-15 inches of good ice like most places around, you'll have no worries if you do what is posted above.

      Rented a sleeper out on Garrison Bay Sunday night with some friends. Fishing was slow but we managed a few walleyes. Best went 23" on the rattle reel. Was a lot of fun though, wish the bite could have been better. How is everyone else doing out there? Any good bites or has it pretty much slowed down for everyone.     Here is a video of the trip:
