Holiday Fishing...

1 post in this topic

Walleye fishing on Pokegama these past 4 - 5 days was slow and most of the time, non-existent. The 'eyes we did catch were small and bit during the day (not typical). What did keep us busy though were the suspended whitefish, 3 - 6# pike and some beautiful crappies. So, it wasn't all bad. grin.gif We fished deep weed lines off shoreline breaks in 17 - 30' of water and mid-lake structure in 15 - 40' of water. There was no "honey hole" by any means. What mattered more than anything was to stay mobile and jig aggressively. The presentations of choice were #3 Salmo Chubby Darters tipped with "zilch", Fiska Jigs tipped with euro-larvae and Northland Buckshot Spoons tipped with a minnow head.

Ice conditions on Pokegama, for the Wendigo Arm, is inconsistent as far as thickness goes. 3 - 5" is typical but we did find a few areas that were as thick as 8". Some ATV and snowmobile traffic as well as spearing houses, etc. but not much.

Not much for photos this weekend but we did manage to take some time and shoot a couple.

Happy Holidays and a Healthy New Year!
