I don't have much of a fishing report, I've been up there 2 times and that was to just basically get the fish houses out on the spots, first weekend didn't go so well, had to leave one fish house 1/2 way out on the ice, wheelers couldn't pull it anymore, too much snow, not enough ice to trust bringing the truck out, hooked on last weekend with the truck and pulled it the rest of the way.

Only fished about 4 hours total so far, action is there, threw back a bunch of small walleye, kept one keeper. Found 2 HUGE perch and 1 40" pike.

Glow red seems to work the best so far, didn't seem to matter if it was live bait or frozen. Ice is about 15" plus.

Will be up there this weekend or sometime near new years anyway.

I haven't been up there but my Dad has been up there for 3 days. S L O W W W W is the word but then he doesn't use much for electronics, he knows how to use the GPS and that is it. Beside he usually goes for Pike instead of Walleye but they did manage a few perch I guess, the Walleye they did catch were very small.

I'm still planning on this weekend, I've been going out of Birch all season so far, will be at the Marina in a couple weeks though.

Might bring the sled this weekend and go exploring a little.

I think you should be fine too hopefully this weather won't mess them up too much, Dad had talked to some guys fishing South Tip this last weekend and it sounded like they were doing well.

FISH.....

Thanks for the use of the Vex, worked great, Dan did find his so we had 4 units up there. I finally got to use my Marcum in the portable instead of leaving it in one of the perm. houses and having to ' share ' a screen with Jon. Got to be a battery recharging fest in the evening but we managed well.

It was a great time again, I put a report on the other Buffalo Bay report thread.

Thanks again.....

Mike

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer
      Yup!  I think that's where we're all heading!  'Cept I'll be in Ely.  Otherwise I'd join ya.   Have a good time, safe trip and catch lots!

      Good opener last year!  Anywhere near as good this year?

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
