Fishing Report for 2/23 to 2/26

2 posts in this topic

We went in on West Winds Road (in West winds houses) at 3:00 on the 23rd. We were about 6.5 miles out in a day house for over night. I think it was about 20 to 30 min after setting up and my son fought in a 36" Pike which his buddy got his paws on without getting nicked so we got some good photos and that was our first release. That evening we got 2 walleyes. Real slow. Next day we moved to a sleeper house as soon as we saw the other group vacate it. That day was extremely tough. We ran out and searched most of the day. Went out to end of raod 9.5 miles out. Then stopped every mile in a various spots. We ran all the way into about 3 miles out 8-9 ft of water. Dead sea. That night was a nothing 1 perch to speak of. We got plenty of sleep. The wallye closed so we ran ours in and stored them with the resort. Next day the crew said they ran into some fish and were moving us. GREAT. We got moved in to about 4 miles out in an area that we never got to in our exploring. Of course after close we hit a walleye in slot about every half hour from 3:00 pm to the next morning. At times durring the night we had three wheels spinning at a time. Rather good I must say. But.. only two crappies 14.5 and a 15. Nice. They checked on us at least twice a day kept very clean houses and looked over what we were doing and offered options for us. They also include the road pass with the package at no extra cost if anyone is comparison shopping.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
