Not bad for a couple rookies

7 posts in this topic

Loonasea and I went out of Silver bay today. Excellent ramp facilities, awsome marina.

We didn't do too bad for a couple of guys fishing from a small boat. I think we ended the day with 17 Lakers (kept 6) 2 bigguns that got away and three or four more that didn't get hooked well so shook their heads a few times, tugged on the rod and left. PLUS three nice fat Coho's.

I had a great day Randoid, hope you enjoyed it too!

By the way, for anyone who cares, we caught every single fish on artificials...who needs meat!

      Well, got out there this morning. Wind really made things miserable. Ice was about 12 inches. Was still in pretty good shape along the shorelines, although the top few inches were "milky". Ice was really popping and cracking the whole time. Everyone was traveling by foot (which I recommend). Tried for rainbows in the shallows, but couldn't avoid the perch, so I went deep for lakers. Marked one right off the bottom in 115 ft, but other than that, just a couple pods of smelt moved through. Pretty disappointing end to a very forgettable ice season

      Had about two hrs to kill today... so I hit one of our local lakes. Ice conditions were pretty good for walking out. Ice has hardened up a bit, still a bit chunky though. Had right around 13inches where I was. Found fish tucked right up in the bullrushes, 2-5 ft. Was able to sight fish to pick of some better ones.
