Final Lake Sallie Report

2 posts in this topic

Fished Sallie last weekend for the final time before closing up shop for the season. Despite strong winds, the fishing was fantastic for large pike, walleye and bass. Water temperatures as of Sunday was 58.5 with the big fish in shallow weeds from 3-8 feet. Walleye of 21-26" were hitting giant jointed x-raps. Northerns were crazy, with several fish to 14 pounds. However, the largemouth bass catch was stunning. We caught more than 30 largemouth from 17-20" in two evenings, most in less than two feet of water while fishing topwater "scum frogs" and "grass rats" in pads and slime. You have to love the DL area LMB's that look like footballs this time of year. Always a sad time of year to shut the cabin down, but time to focus on pheasants and deer down here in Iowa. You all take care and look foward to the reports next spring.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
