Fishing report :/2/21-23/08

5 posts in this topic

My wife and 2 daughters took the wheel house up on Thursday late afternoon, and went out of Adrians. Got set up at 6:30 pm. I see that there was someone else up on the spot that they had plowed out for wheel houses. 6 miles from the island and then left. We were in 34 ft. of water. Nothing bit till 2:41 am on Friday. A huge 7.1 inch sauger. Was'nt worth getting out of bed for, I did'nt, my wife offered.

About as the sun was getting up, we started getting a few, and more steady through out the day. We caught a few less on Sat. and left around 3:30pm. on Sat. All total we kept 29 sauger,s and one walleye about 18". I did take a picture of a huge bunch of river shinners that were swimming just under the ice. I put the under water camera just under the ice and there was thousands moving in the same direction. That happened a few different times on Fri. and Sat. Hope the picture turned out.

Shadyzr, I too was on that 6 mile mark, about the second house in (red truck with grey fishouse). Did you stay there, the same spot, the whole weekend? I spoke to the guys at the first house, closest to the road and they did ok. We didnt, so we moved. Then on Saturday those same guys ran into me again and said that the bite had stopped for them. I saw that the too moved in shallower.

Yes, I think we were the next house farther down. Green wheel house, maroon truck. I had the 4-wheeler out running around on fri. & Sat. Did you see the minnows down the holes swimming around. Could be why the fish slowed down.

How far out does Adrians Road Go?? I usually fish out of Zipple, but have trouble finding anything deeper that 31 ft. Thanks.

We were up there a month ago & were out 7-8 miles. We actually hit the end & came back a little. We were looking for 34', but wound up fishing in 36'. I think we were out a little too far. We didn't do all that well.

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.

      I took the boat out for a test run last weekend to a quiet little lake. Water temp was 54. This weather isn't going to help with the water temps.
