Xmas Day Report

2 posts in this topic

Finally had nearly a full day on the lake and had a great time in 30' at end of Adrian's Road.

Caught on white or pink glow Rattle Varmits/shiner head and fathead on a hammered gold/ pink/white glow Gem-N-Eye & bobber.

M had a tiny Lil' Jack silver/white glow/shiner head and a fathead on pink Genz Worm & bobber.

Had more bobber action than other trips. Probably 1/2 & 1/2.

No real hot times but when 1 rod went 2 or 3 would often go. Had to bring some fish off the bottom 2 or 3 times to get them to bite and as high as ten feet off for some. Wiffs on the bobber line often hit again if you dropped it right back down.

Nice mix of eyes and sauger with a limit of 14-17". Nothing big although M lost a couple heavies. Not sure why, just first time on the ice for her this season and maybe too aggresive. That's OK, kept her from out-fishing me!

Good Morning!!I thought I was the only one up reading and posting at this hour. To early to fish yet. I was out yesterday over at Zippel in 20 fow. Had my house in the same spot since I brought it out there. But the bite there starts at 9 am and lasts now until 12:30 or so. Then about 4 pm pick I hung a swedish pimple and some "too big,not big enough" fish came in. Gold/pink jig, Glo green eye-dropper, and glo green buck-shot rattle spoon, was the key for us.

      I think with the current forecast there will be ice fishermen/women on URL by the 20th. It'll be bitterly cold, which is excellent, but the snow puts a hamper on things...

      all good advice, but with first ice I will avoid going out in the dark until the ice is a thicker. Ice is never safe, play it smart. looking forward to getting out soon

      I also use braid for my decoys and suckers  I think I even have a steel leader on one of them and never had problem with them spooking,  I built a wood floor for my but and use PVC poles to hand my decoys, GoPro, spinner etc works great and can slide them out of the way when not in use.
