Out from Adrians on the 22nd

6 posts in this topic

Finally got back to the machine:) THANKS again keithmn and barcochuck wink.gif for a great day of fishing. My sons first time up there and he had a blast getting out on the big ice. We got a bunch of nice eyes and sauger and I of course got my trophy pout! grin.gif The fish were hitting plain and red hooks under a bobber. 5% from jigs and we tried a ton. they'd just pop up and look at it and not take. Roger was working hard to keep the road good and the minnows were great. Nasty wind Sunday!

The snow shoveling, thats the fun part, or is it being trapped out in the middle of a lake in a snowstorm without any more beer? frown.giffrown.gif

Eyeguy,

Glad you and Mark could join us.

Great pics.

That one of Chuck in his Barcalounger Lazy Boy is a classic.

Thanks for the great company........

And for waking me up to land that eel pout.

(So where's the picture of me and my bloodshot eyes?)

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

        Good for him holding that big pig.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
