Shore outing

4 posts in this topic

I took my oldest son (just turned 12) out yesterday for a little father son shore fishing outing (My boats in the shop right now frown.gif). We fished for a couple of hours from the east shore of Madison and got into some hungry largemouths. It was a lot of fun. My son caught his two biggest bass yet a 13 and 14 incher respectfully within minutes of each other so he was smiling! They were enjoying jumbo leaches under a bobber. We just pitched into the holes in the weeds and waited. The bass seemed to be really active last night. Lots of them rolling and jumping in the weeds. It was a really nice time.

I was just out on Madison yesterday , too. Were you fishing by buckmeisters(?) bridge? A friend of mine, and I took out our little 12 ft aluminum boats, and drifted around together trying to catch some sunnies. His son caught the only one.-Later!

Dustin we were by the culvert. We were the only ones there I'm assuming because of how weedy it was. Made the evening that much more enjoyable!

Piker.....How did the garbage look around the culvert now? Better, I hope. It is nice to have evenings like that with your kids-memories forever. A bonus also to have the bass cooperate. Hope you get your boat back soon to get on the outside edge of those weeds. Good luck fishing this summer.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
