Weeks Report (several pics)

1 post in this topic

Nick and I made it out to Chester Woods earlier this week for a quick couple hours in the morning. The fishing was tough before light, but picked up nicely about an hour after sunrise. A glow white Gill Pill (#12) took most of my fish. We never found any of the nicer crappies, but caught several smaller ones. We did manage some very nice bluegills and got a few decent bass too.

Largemouth caught on a Demon Jigging spoon & a nuggie

Last Friday Andy (crazyice) and I could be found out perch fishing on a lake in our area. Got'em up to 11.25". Waxies, minnow heads, and minnows (both fathead and crappie) took fish for us.

Did a combo trip at Lake Zumbro on Saturday with Cattin in the morning and pannies during the day. Lost one cat after about a 10 second drag peelin' run. Around 9:00 we unveiled the panfish arsenal for the remainder of the day. Eric and I put over 20 crappies on the ice that were over 10" along with a couple dozen nice gills. Many smaller fish to, with a few perch and bass in the mix. Grilled up some cheese brats for lunch. Good fun group of guys fishing together too. Ratso and Gill Pill w/waxie did the damage.

12" White Crappie

5 of us got skunked on Wed night searching for cats on the Zumbro. Got a little redemption on Thursday icing 2 cats, both @ 25". Nick had another one on for a 10 second battle. Caught a few pannies too.

1st cat through the ice this season!

I know I didn't provide many exact details on this particular report, but the bottom line is that the fish are really snappin' right now, so get out after'em.

Every fish mentioned above was CPR'd (Caught, Photographed, and Released).

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
