Moved in and fishing hard

5 posts in this topic

I am moved in to my place in the Falls.

Fishing has been good the past few days.

Got bass up to 5 pounds and walleye to nine. Not very many pike though. Tried for those Saturday but only a couple over 30"

Hope to spend more time on the water before it gets hard. Always looking for partners to share trips. I like bass and pike the best but will fish for whatever is biting.

Hi, we got back home Sunday, we did really well on the smallmouth and the pike, caught some walleyes but it was pretty windy during most of the week. Smallmouth we were catching on humps and any type boulders we could find on the canadian side and pike, (lots of pike, several really nice fish) we caught in bays with the cabbage weed in that had deep water close by. We did catch some walleyes in the same places we were catching smallmouths. Were catching the pike on a terminator white spinnerbaits with gold blades and the smallmouths on bandit crankbaits and glass shadraps. Caught so many pike we got tired of catching them.

My fishing buddy from Cable Wisconsin came up today. We fished from noon till dark and got about 50, mostly smallmouths. Herb10-2006.jpg

We did keep two smaller pike but all rest released.

      The good news is you can't lose!  Let us know what you decide.

          Downriggers are not necessary but if you use them this time of year, don't go down  deep. I used to use boards but they were more complicated for others on my boat to use so it's small dipseys off the side or a clean line straight back. Spoons and sticks work well this time of year   Shallow and high. One year, I ran DR in the spring with the counter reading 6 feet.

      No problem, I always try to help out another fisherman whenever I can.  Squarebill crankbaits 12# fluoro would be good, but if you're talking lipless crankbaits I'd run that on 17# as well.  Here's how I have my baitcasters setup:   6'6" MH - 50# braid (Swim jigs, and topwater frogs) 7' MH - 15# mono with a  18" - 17# fluoro leader (Spinnerbaits/Chatterbaits) 7' MH - 17# fluoro (Jigs, Lipless Crankbaits) 7' M - 12# fluoro (Squarebill crankbaits)   Worms, tubes, jerkbaits and topwater poppers I use a spinning rod

        Jim, If ya get out give Frank or me a call on the cellular device.  We can compare notes.  Not much looking forward to it.  Heard there was a winter kill on the pond this year   BC

      Hey guys,   Just an FYI.  It sounds like the shifting ice sheet did some extensive damage to docks and shoreline on the south facing shore of Birch Point?  Letters went out from the barge services notifying everyone.    Can anyone confirm?   I have not personally been up to see but depending on how bad it is we might not have a dock in time for opener.  If you have a south facing dock it might be worth noting.   Thanks! Jon
