Nothing more fun.

5 posts in this topic

This last weekeng I ice a 27 inch northern on 4lbs line. The best 15 minute fight ever. I love catching big fish on light equipment. Still my recored is a 14lbs carp on four pound. What the biggest fish you guys brought in on light gear?

I snagged a 28 lb carp in the tail a couple years back tossing a jig and twister for walleyes at night with 4 lb test. When i was young growing up in an area with virtually nothing but carp holes around we used too take our ultra lights with 4 lb test and fish for carp. A guy learns in a hurry catching 7-10 lb carp on light tackle how to catch and land big fish. Doing this is how i learned to backreel. What i blast that used to be.

A few years ago I caught a 5 lb. lrg mouth on 4 lb.test in open water, & a 5 lb. muskie while fishing for sunnies, both on French. Back reeling is what I've come to rely on, it's hard to trust a drag when you have a mis-match going.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.

      It's true, people were driving out on the river yesterday, but the ice is melting quickly and the current has picked up.  The snow cover is gone and there is about 1" to 2'' of standing water.  This extended warm weather has me worried.   Personally, I think vehicle traffic is "Iffy" now.  Be careful.

      The webcam has been running for a few days now. I was watching it on and off all day yesterday and saw a fair number of vehicles going on and off the lake. But I haven't seen anything yet this morning. I was thinking about going out tomorrow, but I'm starting to get a bit nervous. I may call Harty's this afternoon and see what they say.
