Thursday night report

7 posts in this topic

Good night to be out with very little boat traffic and not too much wind. We fished from 6:30-1:45. The night started well with about a 10# norhtern attacking a FT #12 HJ as soon as we got our lines in...a few minutes later and we had our first walleye. The walleye bite remained consistent all night with the best bite being from 6:30-12:00. We caught 33 walleyes with 4 measuring at 27" or slightly better....none were over 28". The color of choice and size was pretty mixed throughout the night with FT and TS probably catching the most. The water temp. was 45 degrees. All of our fish came on the inside weededge. Speed range from 1.3-1-7 with both inside and outside turns taking fish. I think tonight would be another great night to be out. Goodluck to all.

It was a fun night especially after skipping last weekend due to a bunch of other commitments. I think the fishing should keep getting better through early November.

Dhenry, Wow wha a nite 33! I guess I was on the wrong side of the lake. I would have loved to show my son a nite like that. News like this will keep me interested to try again.

i was up thurs. to fri. i must have been on the wrong side of the lake as well. got a few thurs and fri. Did get a limit of nice perch 10-12 inchers and did get 12 on sat. but it was a very cold trip, and the bite was just not too good, a bit disappointing but did get 2 nice fat 27's. Now we wait till ice up.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.

      That ion x does look sweet! Not sure if I can justify the switch from my current ion... what was your out the door cost?

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.
