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!

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
