cloyd, when the breakwall gods smile, they REALLY smile, eh?

I think that "whitefish" was probably a lake herring. Their numbers have come back, and you occasionally find schools of them cruising around the wall in summer. They taste quite good, and some guys keep a third rod rigged with a little jig/fly for when they see a school come by. Herring have small mouths and, while they'll take spoons, they're more easily caught on the smaller lures.

Good job on your catch. grin.gif

I started to check this forum out and thought this is the best one yet! I will send a quick email and send you my info too smile.gif

The gods must still be smiling this week....

I've been in town on a job and hit the wall for a couple of hours the past two nights after supper. Last night I caught a small 20" laker, and tonight I caught another 20" laker, and a cisco (it had an adipose fin). All the fish were caught on crocs, hammered copper/orange and chrome/blue.

I'll hit the wall again tomorrow night and hopefully complete my limit of lakers for the smoker smile.gif

      hurry up ice!

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.

      must be catching lots of guys, most colors are out of stock   neat looking lure

      I'll bet this lure will get a lot of bites! It may even catch a few fish! Does look interesting. Cliff
