2 posts in this topic

My friend Dave invited me to an assume bite.He found fish Sunday and Thursday on a shoreline point. Jig and minnow 9 to 12 foot with a minnoow. I couldnt hook em but between Jeff and Dave within a 1.5 hours boated our limit. we quit after two and one half after boating 30 plus. all were between 17 and 21. It was assume thanks Dave. Also its the first time for the three of us that we broke ice to get on the Lake.

We fished the river Sat. and picked up 10 walleyes...3 nice ones, 16-17-20 and the rest were little guys. We also got 1/2 dozen pike, from a couple, up to about 10 pounds. We couldn't get a thing on artificals, not even tipped. A plain hook and minnow accounted for everything we caught.

It was cold! 19 degrees with a wind and the rod tips would ice right up. Everything else was pretty warm, but the hands took a beating and when they decided to quit working properly, we left. Last open water trip...time for the ice to come now.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
