Hey sorry Bryan for the late response eh! Back when the website was being funny I really had no patience for it and it would'nt let me look more often then not anyhow....Appears all is pretty slick now.

Glad to hear that spots panning out for you. I should wander over thatta way myself as January is about as good as it gets there. One of those 'so many spots so little time' kinda things eh!

You'd mentioned in your E wanting BIG fish and seeing you've been out there five times with good success being it's a good spot in my book to hunt them big girls... What have you seen show up big fish-wise so far? Years past I've had waaaay good fishing for big Sauger there too on that piece of structure.. Are they showing up there this year at all?

Hope the bite holds up for you and iffin you see me out there whip a snowball at me eh!!!

Regards....fiskyknut

The biggest so far is a 23 incher but lots of 19.5-22's probably about 4 per day in that range. I set up just off the structure in about 26 fow and its been great. I have caught a few 17-18 inch saugers which is nice but I haven't got into very many saugers at all. We have had our walleye limit everytime there before 10 in the morning wether theres 2 or 6 guys all 15-19 inch fish WOW! I have 1 question on that spot would you be on the structure or on the edge where I'm at? Thanks alot

Nope you're just fine there off of that edge.. Nice and close as the fish often wedge up along that one pretty good. I musta mentioned a bit of close by and related shallower structure to fish early and late? Has that bite off the rocks been petering afternoons? If so move up on that flatsie bit and give it a go. Way early morning too. Myself I'd have no problem sitting there a good hour+ past sunset.. Some nites even longer!!

Hmmmm where are all the good Saugers then? I'm not seeing much for numbers of them either to the west of where you've been?? Few pop up now and then is all? Wierd.

E me at fiskyknut at yahoo when you get a chance I wanna ask you about the traffic over thatta way. And I hope your kids are out fishin you!

Yo mj did you get an email? I may have hit the wrong button maybe?

Too much time on water and many emails and middle aged melon memory malfunction!

      Thanks Cliff. It looks like I'll bring tall boots, ice crampons, and snowshoes for my walk across the lake on Friday! Who knows what I'll encounter

      I fished north of Two Harbors on Sunday and it was a mess.  The plowed areas had a good 4-5" of standing water, the rest was slop and slush about 1/2 way up to my knee. There was plenty of ice, and there were 4-5 pickups out there, but I scouted it out with the ATV and elected to walk to my spot rather than risk getting stuck in the muck.  This was of course before the rain Monday, so I can only imagine what it's like now.

      Del,   You know what they say about opinions and a certain part of the anatomy don't you. That said, you've made your point but it's now time that you step out for some fresh air and give this rant of yours a break.     Good luck to the Landing's new owners. Restaurants are a tough gig anywhere and I sincerely wish you the best and hope you'll succeed.   John

      Although down riggers aren't required, they sure are nice.  I'very really become a fan of copper lately.  The newer stuff is easier to work with and has caught more fish for me over lead core over on Lake Michigan.      I agree that unless you're using the suffix lead core the 47s don't leave a lot if room for backing.  Definitely use braid for backing.  I like to splice 20 ft of 30 lb mono between the core and backing to clip boards to.   I do the drag upgrades too.  When you get the diameter down the drags aren't as forgiving.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff
