Fished just north of the kinni in 20-25 feet of water. Fishing was slow and I missed a few real good bites because my anti-reverse was intermittantly not working with the cold weather frown.gif

I managed to catch 1 keeper walleye and 1 white bass. I missed at least 2 other good bites that I should have been able to hook.

I fished from 7:30-11:00

1/4 oz fireball with stinger

fatheads

6lb test line

I saw what looked to be a local guide out there with some customers trying to catch some walleyes. They didn't get one bite. Right as they were leaving I hooked my walleye. hehe

Hey burchoid...maybe you should get some better equipment like me wink.giftongue.gif. Anyway glad to hear that you are getting into a couple of them. I will be up there again in 2 weekends and hope to be able to get out with you to pool 4 if that works. It looks like they are starting to go. Let me know what you think about that and I will catch ya later.

Burchoid, I have a couple of Pinnacle reels that do the same thing when they get cold. I have been told that getting them cleaned and having grease added can help this problem. I think I may be purchasing shimano or guide series reels from now on, as they don't have that problem as much.

Dude ... its a $200.00 Daiwa SSII (2nd gen SS)

I should call Daiwa and ask them whats up. This reel is supposed to be bullet proof.

My other shimano's never have a problem but I have 2 Daiwas now that skip on the antireverse frown.gif

All I use is Shimano and they work smooth as silk in the cold.

      Should I look for the cats more in deep holes now or more in shallow by bridges etc. Don't want your spot just general info. I know they can be any where but I'm thinking deep? Also would fat heads be a good choice now.

      Well my ice season ended, it was an extremely short year, with not alot of opportunity to get out. Still caught some good fish and had some good times with friends, enjoy the video!

      I'very never heard of anyone getting into them.  But I do see them cutting the surface early morning or evening.  Might be able to get a few on a fly rod.
