Casino Report

Went out by the Casino today. A long walk for a few fish. Had the camera down all day, and never had a moment when there wasn't small perch in the camera. Matter of fact, I didn't see one perch on the camera that would have been worth keeping. Ended up with 2 slot eyes 21 and 24, an eelport, and a northern that was taged...Kind of cool.

Other than that, I only seen two other eyes on the camera all day...pretty slow out there.

I talked to a guy when I was packing up by my truck, and he said he was all over the place, and only caught one walleye.

It must be slow for a lot of people. I just need the ice to grow. I don't have a atv and am sick of walking, and sick of not getting to the places I want to get to. We'll try again next week.

I got a tagged 31" northern in Isle Bay on Saturday. Kind of excited to see the stats on it. It was very fat, wish I could have gotten a weight on it. Other than that, very slow.

I think some of the resorts will give you a ride out to some off shore structure. I know Appledoorn's does, others probably do as well. Seems like a good option if you're looking to get to a particular location. Cheaper than buyin a sled or ATV anyway!

Isn't the slot 20" and under for keepers???

I meant that they were in the protected slot limit (20-28), as in, they are still swimming in the lake, and were not kept.

I should have worded that post a little better. I didn't want to make it sound like you kept the Eyes.

I was wondering if I missed something on the Winter Slot.

No hard feelings I hope.

      Sounded like a good mix of fish.    The walleyes I lost were because I couldn't get a good enough hook set on em.  I was using my light action crappie rod with 2 lb test.  Even the ones I iced had the hook come out while the fish were in the hole.  I was just quick enough to get a hand on em.   I tried the same presentation on a walleye rod with 8 lb test and never actually got bit.

      What day is that on

      Excellent question. In the beginning of the day it was out away from everything and everyone. Visibility was low so I chose to stay within sight of others in case of problems, but certainly far away. Found a group of structure points that we were extremely happy about. Ranged from 16ft to 33ft on navionics. Morris point-cyrus area.   Fished that entire zone we had found, which is probably 1.5miles x 1.5miles give or take. Fished inside it with varying depths, fished the edges, fished the curves, then when it started to rain we set up the house and fished about 15yds off of everything in 30ft. Caught 5. Biggest was 10in.   The slush is making it difficult to manuever, I have tracks and am concerned of getting that stuck.    Unsure what happened over night with the weather now. Today we may need to stick to the old resort trails and work the road areas, plenty of vacated real estate out there...    Chains, tracks, or tires. With all this slushy mess... It's a hard choice and everything is a limitation.   Plan to try and work 18ft and out.... If you see a group of guys doing summersaults and bouncing around like they have welding sparks in their pants, you'll know that's me and we found some activity.
