12/15 fishing report

The Bite

Off of Jr's Access follow the road out to 7-10 feet of water. The morning bite is from 7:30 to 9:00 while the evening bite is 4:00 to 6:00. The bite continues day and nite in the usual waves. The bite has been moderate to good. Walleye are most pelentiful followed by pike. So far the Crappie bite has been nonexsistant. The crappie bite is very typical for this time of year. They should begin to show up in 12-14 feet of water as soon as the lake sees some more pressure.

The Ice

We have a very different ice situation from last year. Areas with little or no snow have up to 14 inches. Areas with heavy snow cover have as little as 8 inches. Most folks will be fine in a small truck or car if they stay on the marked road. Most houses were pulled off of the access on Thursday morning to prevent drifting in the prime walleye areas. The goal of pulling the houses was to maintan a good sheet of Ice.

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
