I tried some on Friday. Spent 30 minutes or so caught 10 all dinks. I think the large ones moved out. Didnt see any of size caught. The week before 6 of us kept 110 between 11 to 13 inches. What a blast. They may move in again later int the month.

Isle bay was productive for us on saturday. You had some small ones mixed in but we ended up with 20+ 11"-13" fish. One went almost fourteen!!!

We caught a limit of jumbos in 2 hours. Boats less than 20 yards from us got almost nothing. Jumbos are in shallow and you need to do some cruising to find them. It took us an hour to find the hot spot. We found them in 4ft of water inside the weed line on rocks.

ditto what mark said exactly - stayed past dark and slowly the perch turned into walleyes. no huge fish. think are biggest eye was 21 - but pullin them in the boat one right after another never gets old

5ft of water just inside the weedline on rocks - perch wanted fatheads and the eyes seemed to prefur leeches - but we did get eyes on every bait we tried.

I was on the south end last weekend and caught over 150 with 78 we kept in the 10" to 14" range. We hardly saw very few doing as well as us. North east side of Isle bay. Where the bouy;s used to be is the best spot I have found the last couple years. We have tried other places in Isle bay with little luck.

Nail em'

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.

      I did that with tango and saw a world of difference ... I started at Sand Pines and they helped me tons. The kid brought me out kept all the pheasants caged and would plant one at a time in a easy spot where I could see where he planted. I would let tango out we would flush it shoot retrieve come back I would put him in the car and we did that 3 times. After that he then planted the rest of the ones I bought and we found all but one. Next spot I brought him was Golden Meadows and they were helpful as well I had them flag the general area the pheasants were planted. I went there a couple times and each time they used less flags and planted the birds farther away from the flags they did have out. Until the last time I went used no flags at all.

      As if there was any question...definitely be careful on those high current lakes.  I went through (walking) on Koetter tonight. Thankfully I only plunged one leg in to the hip and was able to scramble away.   Its a spot I have been a dozen times in the past few years.  I knew the ice got thinner in this area but was always passable and I followed a 4 wheeler or tank track and then a foot/sled path so I thought I would stay dry.  I was ON the path when I got wet.  Had picks around my neck and glad I did even if I didn't use them (happened SO fast).  The walk back to the car was more than a little nerve wracking.  Not sure I'll ever fish that spot again.  And in the future I wont be so trusting of other's tracks.  Spud on...   tg
