new years weekend

3 posts in this topic

5 of us fished out of a couple sleepers Sat. Sun. Mon. off Pine island in 31 ft. and only managed 14 keepers, and at least half of them were 12 in saugers, and most of the keeper walleyes came well after dark. Anybody else have this crappy of fishing over the weekend. We had 2 vex's and 2 Marcum's 2 cameras and marked fewer fish each day.

Mobility. I realize that if you were in a sleeper you probably did not have this option, but getting out and ripping holes like a mad man has been our key to success in the past. Schools of 'eyes will move from day to day and even a little from hour to hour. The least time you spend anchored in one spot the more fish you will put on the ice. I am heading up there this weekend and will give a report then. My buddies were out of morris the last two days and had no problem slaying their walleyes, but they did have to more quite a bit too. 17' in the morning and evening and 24' during the day.

we just got back from zipple and had a sleeper. caught 2 eyes, one of which was on a rattle reel at 3 am and 6 perch over 2 days from the sleeper. we moved in a little shallower with the portables and caught a dozen eyes. we only kept 8 of those. i agree that you need to move a little. it's tough if that's all you are limited to is the sleeper.

      A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning.   Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning.  Strange.   About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind.  They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE.  Now all is quite and cold.   Giving them till 10 then off to work.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...
