Hey BB,
The conditions are getting better every day, we are seeing large pods of bait all over the sonar screen these days.

I'm not much for trolling until it gets to cold to cast however, I know Tom has caught a few nice ones this week in the evening. smile.gif

Hey, Hey.

Closed up the cabin today.

Seen Terry just the other day.

Darn cold out on that Island come 3 AM but I LOVE IT!


Clients and I got a couple this week trolling a gap not far from BIG FISH Hump.


they 44" & 46", me 43" & 46".

Simple 25' lead, 10" Perch Jake and 10" WILDMAN Believer we color up by hand.

BANG, BANG, one on, one in the BAG.


Not being able to cast much left us no choice but to troll. From what we been seeing, this in not the BEST way to get on the BIGGEST fish right now.

We have seen many huge fish this weak working simple areas, nothing fancy.

But being only half of what I should be, I have been sort of helpless to do much about this. Real bummer since late August. frown.gif

2005 my NEW nick name should Be ROBO TOM


Trolling should get better & Better with water temps about 44 to 48 depending where your at, what time of day and wind speed, but right now I would stick to casting.

Remember the Big winds are your best friend this time of year.

Silver Scale

Robo Tom do you mean Roto Tom?

Messed up the back so have not been out since I last saw you and the hounds by Big Fish Island. Hope your surgery goes good and you heal real quick.

Electrified Metal Chest.....AKA Silver Scale :-)

      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....

      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.

         Couple from prospecting some virgin ice, not a hole in site. Mission accomplished!         .....

      Just got off the ice and there were several cars driving around.  We ended up with 1-2 inches. We found a few willing cats today.   Enough to get a head start for the fish fry.  Keep posted as we did not find much for cats in the methhole area.

      sounds great. I hope everyone had fun great job Hoey red lake was slpw Saturday kept 2  
    • AlwaysFishing23
      I agree. With ice that only leaves foot or two max of water fish are either extremely stressed or it already winter killed. Sounds like a real nice spring gill lake though. Defiantly would try it again this winter and as other stated drill lots of holes. Good Luck!
