9 posts in this topic

I hate to sound like a broken record, but I have to give credit where credit is due!!!!! I took the whole family up for the weekend....2/29 and 3/1 and 3/2.....fished out of the Petrowske's luxury 6 man chateau....what a palace......caught fish sporadically during our days there....managed a few slabboes in the 15" to 15.5" range.....C & R about 60 walleyes and 2 BIG LEAGUE PIKE 36+" and 37+".....what a treat....my bride was very pleased not only with the fishing, but with the accommodations and friendly and thoughtful service....my kids had an absolute blast AGAIN.....if I can squeeze it in, we're going to try to get another trip in....heck, Jon's stories were worth the trip....Jon, the pix are in your e-mail box! Feel free to use 'em wherever!

We were there on the same dates and fished out of one of Johnny's 4 man houses. Johnny was great. On Saturday he saw that we were doing some drilling and hole hopping and proceeded to just plow us a big circle without us even asking him. He just said "That'll make the walking a little easier" as he drove by on his way out. Caught 5 craps, a number of walleyes and a few pike. All craps on red glow demons. When they wanted it they came after it! Thanks, Johnny and Kelly, always a great time.

Your kids just seem to attract nice pike. cool.gif That's good that your better half enjoyed it. When I heard URL rookie I was concerned.

I can tell you one thing Perch Hunter and his older brother Blake (whom has also been pictured on FM with big fish) are some effecient anglers. I seldom see them sitting still. Always jigging, checking bait so on and so forth.

We are starting to see a upward trend. Each night the reports get a little better and a little better. I think/theorize once the snow drops it might just go nuts.

      How's the ice doing? I will be up with atvs on the west side next weekend. I see it's gonna be warm all week. Curious if there are still any guys out in pickups anywhere? How much ice are guys seeing?

       I was told as long as both seasons are Open( Archery and Firearm) and I have a valid license for each (Archery and Firearm) both can be in possession.  The regulation book is a reference. they ultimately go off statues. I email all my questions and ask for an answer from someone who can legally answer the question. What you are referring to in the regulation book is carrying a gun during archery seaon alone. Yes that is illegal without a CC.

      Good to know Don.  Everything is ahead of schedule.

      Fished the last couple of nights on smaller lakes in the area, walked out. The ice was pretty good still under a layer of mush. Any surface water is leaking through but the ice is holding up well for foot traffic. Trying to balance my time between maple trees and fishing now.

      We talked to a guy who did very well in 16 FOW by Frontier on Monday. Also heard from a group who did well near Birchdale (not sure on depth).  Our best luck was in 21-25 FOW
