Well here it is...Hooked up with a couple FMer's staying at fishmeisters cabin and went fishing for six hours on Tuesday. It went well, unfortunately we were constantly on the chase for some bigger fish. Found two good spots, one of which was loaded with 'eyes where a mud line met up with the rock, all the fish there were at biggest 12"-12 1/4" went out to another spot on an Island and Northlander hooked up with a nice 20-21" Moved and graphed a couple more spots with nothing on them, and went out into sand bay, where we found some 'eyes, but again small, with the exception of a couple.

That evening I went out with my dad after some crappies, we ended up catching and releasing 20-25 decent crappies, with a couple around 12" and two pushing 14". Found the fish in 30' of water, Northland Slupies were working best.

Wednesday 8-16, didn't make it out to Fishmeisters cabin in time to fish with Steve and Randy, I ended up going after crappies in Redgut, found a large school and ended up keeping my 10 with a combined weight on almost 16lbs!! A few fish pushed two, with the average being 1 1/2 lbs. Found them in 26-32' feet of water suspended four to sixteen feet off bottom.

Good Luck Fishing Everyone!!! grin.gif

Northlander & Loonasea,

Your company was great also, I wanted to hook up with some bigger fish too, but thats the way it goes. I figured that you didn't have any cell service, but at the time it was the only thing that I could think of doing to get ahold of you, other than driving all the way back out to the lake again.

Take Care Guys, Looking Forward to Meeting up With Ya Again!! grin.gif

Northlander, whats your e-mail? Mine is bluebill7788@hotmail.com. I have school from 8:00 am through 1:00 pm M-F. I don't know what hours I will be working, or if I will be working yet, I haven't heard from any of the places that I applied to. I'll drop you a message when I get that figured out.

Take Care! grin.gif

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!
    • Pat McGraw
      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?  
    • Wanderer
      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Here is some more dirty ice armor fish pics..... todays beast, released to fight again 
    • JerkinLips
      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
