Pictures are worth a 1000 words aren't they. For the most part, the pattern for success is very easy at this time. Simply find a location that you're confident with and then "honker down" and wait 'em out. Over the past thirty years, both in open water and over hard water, I have caught countless fish like these beauties by following that simple rule. At times you'll catch them suspended and like these two I iced yesterday, you'll hook-up while working your presentation on or in close proximity to the bottom. Either way....it's always a blast!

Thanks Roger! We've got a great pattern on them right now, that's way you haven't seen me on the the lake. Speaking of Lake Winniepeg, word has it that you and your crew are really "sticking" some serious 'eyes out there...way to go! I was planing a trip over to reef at Grand Beach today, however thing's never panned out.

the lakes still going strong stu....

big during the week was 30-3/4"

lots of fish yesterday....including 2-28"...a 29" and a 30"

all big fish have been cr'd

man the lake is full of bait....

the phosphates and nitrates really have the plankton zooplankton bite really going on the susppended shiners....the most consistent bite....

the back eddy keeps socking them back in....

the late day perch bite has been good for a few fillers

but when the shiners get pushed shallow and both bites collide

the shallow bite can be an all day affair....

see you out there soon.....

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
