loon fishing

1 post in this topic

I was on gull lake on Saturday morning and I had a caught a little walleye or perch and all of a sudden bang I thought I had a huge pike come and eat the smaller fish, the line was peeling off the reel so fast it was scary, I had no idea what was on the end of the line, when it stopped I reeled back and thought I had the biggest fish on I had ever hooked, when I got it close to the boat the darn thing came to the surface about twenty feet from the boat, I have to say it shocked us my fish was a loon and it wasn’t happy, it took off again, after 5 minutes I finally got the loon close enough to brake the line, shocked.gif

      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.
