Calhoun Report 12/30

4 posts in this topic

Fished Calhoun last night 3:30-7. First time out this season. 11 inches of ice. Set up in 32 feet on a steep break to start (normally a good depth there). Nothing. Not even a fish on the flasher. Moved to 17 foot weed edge. Nothing, not even a fish on the flasher. These spots normally give me something on this lake. I did pop some holes in the general area at various depths to do a bit of hole hopping and had not luck with that either. Anyone doing anything out there? Depths that are working? Steep breaks or gradual? Thanks.

We spent 7 hours out there Friday night around the sunken island just off the boat launch and got nothing. Probably only spotted 3 or 4 real fish.

I am determined now to go back and find out where they are all hiding.

I was on Calhoun tonight for about 4 hours(3-7) and got nothing. was fishing on the west side at about 15' around one of the sunken islands. i think i saw maybe 6 blips on the sonar the entire time. there have been portables out from the boat lauch almost every night though, might have to try that spot.

I was out on 1/5 with G_Man on the east side. We didn't really catch much other than lots of 4" to 5" perch. However, we did meet a very nice young man that helped let me use his camera to retreive my sunglasses that I somehow managed to drop down the hole. If you read this Jordan, THANKS!

      Agreed.  One thing that drew me too lakers was their mysterious nature and the places they live.  Kind of a sacred type of fish.   I also agree the DNR will basically ignore any additional specialized management until an organized group starts advocating for lakers.  There just hasn't been a large enough following up till the past few years like you mentioned.   So, what's next?  It seems like laker fans are here to stay.

      How are folks dealing with this warm weather spell? Are you still fishing even though the temps are well above freezing? At what point is ice deemed unsafe?

      Well it looks like Recycled Fish is under new leadership! I talked to them and they say that they will have the shirts back for the 2017/2018 fishing season

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!
