We stayed at Dickies over the weekend and had a fun time (it was a slow bite). Caught some small perch and thats about all we saw on the camera below the house. We were portable on Friday and caught a couple jumbo's, a couple of the guys were portable Saturday morning and caught a few jumbos.

It was packed up at the bar at Hunters Point on Saturday for the Arctic Blast. Most of our group was up there all day expect for a few of us.......I finally stopped in for a beer after not catching anything but a few small perch all day. That place was packed.

Near white out conditions at times Saturday night.....very windy and cold. Two of the vehicles in our group would not start Sunday morning. -15* (actual temp) when we pulled off the lake around 11:00am.

Only thing we saw on the camera other then crayfish (a bunch of 2-3" perch): Picture022_small.jpg

Cold and windy Sunday morning:

Myself and 4 others were out on sunday and managed to keep a few jumbos! Put the camera's down and there are Perch every where but man they would not take anything. We threw the box at them, bait presentations and just could not keep them interested long enough to bite. It was brutal out there this weekend but it was still a blast!

Saturday the bite was good with 2 of us catching 21 jumbos. At about 12:30 we had a good school come in and caught 8 in a row as fast as we could get our lines down. From then till we left Sunday it really got slow with only 4 more caught. Don't usually see to many eyes but Sunday am we saw a bunch on the camera (would not bite)and not to many perch. Not sure if it was the weather or the eyes but perch fishing was the slowest we have seen this winter on Sunday.

The weather was brutal. Just trying to gas up the generator was a challenge. At times I could not see my truck that was parked a few feet from my house.

      You were in the right area, maybe just the wrong time.  I went out late this afternoon to see if the house my Dad has been using came through the "flood" OK and decided to drop a line when I was there. When I first dropped the hook down the hole a walleye screamed up off the bottom and slammed it 5 feet off the bottom. So out of curiosity I just sat there and jigged 4 to 5 feet off the bottom and they kept coming up and slamming it. They never touched the dead stick that was set 1 foot off the bottom.  All I can think of is that with the snow cover gone they could really see something up against the sunlight. I hadn't seen the walleyes that aggressive all winter.  maybe it was because I was fishing in a hole about 20 inches wide due to the water running down it.   No I don't think so cuz I have a big roll of duct tape and a bunch of white sheets. I'll wrap me, the Jeep and the dog in white sheets. We'll be just like ghosts.  OOPS, just remembered that the snow is all gone. I really think that after all the years we each could stick a pin in a lake  map guessing where the other one would be and we would each be within 1/4 mile. From his description fishing tech was right on the eastern edge of your favorite area.

      What needs to be in the boat, to be legal to fish Superior. I've been trying to find it in the book with no luck.
