I have a sleeper booked this weekend with hillmans and was wondering if anybody had any recent fishing reports from there?

Thanks MM

Read jonny's report from 2-14 it general but he is out there every day and knows the lake better than most! Hillmans has there houses in good areas and you will do just fine!

Hey muskratman, we (myself and three others) will be out of Hillman's this weekend also. From the posts on here, I have learned to first try the sleeper and then go mobile from there if nothing happening. Hopefully Hillman's will have us on fish or be willing to guide us to an area to try with the portables. Weather looks decent for the weekend so that should not be a problem like lately. Red and blue glow seem to be the color of choice. Me, I'm gonna try the Salmo Chubby Darter (size 4) in a glow color to see how it works. Something new to play with. Our overall choice of liquid refreshment is Bicardi Gold with a splash of Pepsi. And, oh yeah, bring an extension! smile.gif

I and three others will also be going out of Hillman's this weekend. Plan on fishing Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning. Have a 4 man sleeper rented. Plan on trying that first and then going with portables. As everyone has said, being mobile and staying away from the crowds will be my game plan. And drink of choice, Crown Royal Reserve with a splash of 7-up. Good luck this weekend.

I like your choice of drinks but I can only afford VO.

When I was up there a couple weeks ago we did alright. I think we could have done alot better but when we dropped the aqua view down the whole there was alot of trash down the holes. We identified pop cans, beer cans, water bottles, broken coffe cups, and some other things that we couldnt identify. It looked like the house wasnt move for a while and people who stayed before threw it down the hole

      Wow was it a foggy son of a gun yesterday. In a week or so the hard pack is melted down and there is a lot of slush out there. The roads turned into shallow rivers but there is still a solid block of ice in between the layers of water!  Lots of folks out there yesterday, it was hard to tell until the fog lifted. We fished in 15' of water next to a little bowl of 32' of water and it started out pretty slow. We had three 8 year old girls and they ended up making snowmen for the first hour lol.    About 4 o'clock we caught our first perch, it was a flurry after that until dark. Quite a bit of sorting to do but we kept a dozen and a half in the 9 to 10" range. We caught a few in the 11" range too.

      Lots of water and slush on the ice yesterday. Ice wasn't as thick as I thought it'd be either.  Spot I was on I marked 13".  Ended up not driving all the way to where I was going and glad I did. Walked about 1/3 mile.  Caught some perch, gills, and a 14.5" eye. Saw some larger marks moving through when I caught the 14 but just sniffers. I was in 20' bottom of a break with some deeper water near and weeds not far.
