I've been playing with the 4 wheeler and plow! I can't believe your not fishing CK? Better fishing during the week if you ask me.

I would have except my bud bailed on me.

Too much snow I'm thinking.

I got 40 jigs done today ,so it was not a complete loss.

Plus the Vikes whooped up on the Lions pretty good.

I made the mistake of draggin my portable a 1/4 mile on Saturday. It went out easy, but after 9" of snow it took me about 3 hours to drag it back. I am hurting today. I caught a few small northerns, but it was just nice to get out. I was glad I split so much wood for the shack when I rolled in last night. It was pretty chilly.

Hey CK remember when I told you about hitting a nice buck early with the bow. Check out the archery forum under "the one I thought got away". Talk about killer letdown.

Good luck out there on the ice this year. I'll probably run into you or hook up sometime this winter.

      Headed up this weekend and next weekend.  WIll be fishing mostly Frazer.  Sounds like the hatch is on.  If anyone has been fishing walleye on frazer in the past few days, got any tips on depth?  Presentation?     Sounds like crawlers are the ticket right now.   Thanks

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
