Fishin-In the snow on Big V..

Recommended Posts

kdawg00

Hey There,
We are going up to The big V on Thurs., Just in time for the bottom to fall out of the nice weather.(If it weren't for bad luck.. we'de have no luck at all). At least I have the full bimini top and a small heater.
Does anyone know if the lake has turned over yet? If so, what would be the best way to fish eyes with a N.W. wind howlin down out of Canada?
We will be up west of the narrows. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks to all who reply..

Yep, this fish are deep. Was out with my #1 fishing partner Skyler (my son) this morning. We whacked'em pretty good. Brought in 10 nice ones to eat and released several others. Several places to catch them right now. We are fishing 42-46 feet deep. 42 is the key depth for us. Talked to others doing well also.
Oh, these are all fish on the WEST END.

Hi

Walleyes are not my main thing, but I got into a bunch each day out with the hounds in 36' to 38' off and on all week.

Fish of many sizes from 6" to 18", just simply to fun.

Mmmmmmmmmmm, and so tasty to say the very, very least.

Simple Jig & Minnow did it all for me.

SLOW and in their face fish'en.

Also popped a few nice 18" fish just off Scavanger Point in 9'.

Cool thing is you don't have to go to far and can be alone, but fish'en naked would be a bit to much as that wind is COLD!! wink.gif

Have fun and enjoy it while you can.

Tom

Had a little bit of all weather Thurs, Fri and Sat. We were fishing out of VDL and had a great time as usual. Lots of 12"-14" walleyes deep 40-50ft with jig-n-minnows and a few 19"-20" dragg'n lindys in 14' along the shore line. Also took home 4 14" pie plates. Had my brother up from Arizona for the 1st time and he ended up with a 42" musky next to the boat. 10 minutes to get it up on 6 pound test w/ lindy rig shocked.gif. Looking forward to the ice, but more foward to spring.

Sounds like you had some fun Jigit.

That is what it is all about for most of us and a mixed bag of Walleyes, along with some weather and a Muskie to boot is very special.

Maybe see ya on the water sometime next spring.

      @leech~~ I believe the permit does require those houses to be moved out of the contest area.  Not necessarily kicked off the lake. That’s what permits are for, eh?  Looks like a great day for you two - congrats!  Might’ve been the lake, the spot or the fisher.  But I’ll go with the lake too.

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?
    • leech~~
      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?
    • Spartacus218er
      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.
