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.

Doubles...

      I think stoney point is good for wheelers only.  Tried horseshoe bay and followed the pressure ridge and could not find a place to cross.  Went back to Whipholt which had a good landing and went toward stoney point  Had to cross a small pressure ridge by the Island.  Once crossed, all the way to stoney  with no problem  fishing was SLOW, tried the deepest part of the Paris Trench all the way to 24ft. thinking of one last trip this weekend

         Thanks for the update, I completely understand why you choose to post this here instead of a different thread. I haven't been on the ice in WEEKS now, might be retiring the ice gear for the season and waiting for open water pannie season...Or the big lake.

      Hey monstermoose Im in princeton or by Longsiding.  I think I have a decent spot as the farmer says he sees them out there a lot.  Never found a better scout than a farmer.  Just havent hunted turkey much.  I appreciate the generous offer and the advice. Looking forward to watching my boys get the turkey fever.  Last year I would have hit you up for those spots as we did some sitting in blind to watch the sun come up. Thanks all for the advice and helping a new turkey hunter out.

      Know a guy that is out there today.  Unfortunately he is not fishing as he got hung up a breaker this morning.     The main sheet sounds like it is fairing well.  They have been accessing the lake from Whipholt and driving across.  Long drive.  Not sure about other accesses.
