Ran up Friday afternoon to get a couple houses out and ready for this coming week. 12" of good clear ice, almost zero snow to bank your house in... Set up in 19-20' of water in Allen's Bay, on a sand - mud break. Water looks a little cloudier than normal for Cass. Fished Friday night and only managed an eel pout... I snuck out and fished for 2 1/2 hours Saturday morning before needing to head home for Christmas. I was just catching and releasing... Activley jigging a small Chubby Darter with a minnow head was the trick... only 2 perch on my bobber line. Caught around 15 perch with maybe a half dozen over 10", only one walleye though....

NICE! I can't believe this...I fish all week and the biggest 'eye I get is 17", I leave friday night, and look what happens! Man, I'm jealous. Oh well, I'm getting outta here (central MN....yuck) early tomarrow morning so I can get in atleast one day of ice fishing before going back to work. But I can still hit the evening bite after that.

Hey Ken, I'll probably see you up there sometime later this week. We'll have to hit the ice sometime. I gotta spot thats been pretty nice to me as far as numbers go.

PikeBay, how are things looking for the Jan. 6th get-together? I still plan on showing up, but if you want to hit the ice before that, I'd be up for it.

Rob... we'll hook up and hit the ice. Are you working every day? We're trying to put a Red or LOW trip together on Thursday.

Matt call me when you get up there. I'm sure we could meet up and throw a few fish on the ice. My number is 651.341.4581

Come on over to Break on the Lake for New years eve... it's usually a riot of a party.

Good Luck!

Ken

Ken, I work from 6:00am to 2:30 pm everyday this week, except for friday. I had planned on coming back down here on friday, but I think those plans fell apart, so I'm sure I'll be free from Friday to Monday. Then again, with my job, I could get a call at any time saying that I have the day off. I might have to give you a call later on this week.

      We had a good bite on 1/2 crawlers today! Boated 45 walleyes and kept our limits of fish that were all between 15-1/2" and 19-3/4 "! Released at least 6 slot fish. Largest was a fat 25-1/2 inch fish. Best over all sized fish limit all summer! The walleyes were stuffed with either May fly nymphs or molted crayfish.

      I've fished the hex hatch many times. In wisconsin.The hexs are out at my lakevplace in grand rapids Mn.  its usually a little later on the river. So this weekend into next week and the following week ought to be good. Late in the evening.. like  9:30 on...  I haven't been to the straight for years... I wish you'd let me know how it goes...

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)
