Never Thought.....

3 posts in this topic

Well i never thought that i would be out on the ice surfing the internet but i am testing out our new work sprint internet service with the laptop. Just got setup about an hour ago, no bites or fish yet but i am pretty sure i missed prime time. I am currently out on osakis on the main part of the lake, only saw two other houses on this part of the lake on the way out. So hopefully i will get a wake up call tonight grin.gif Lots of ice out here but the auger still makes it down in the house with about 6" to spare.

I use mine all summer. haven't taken it on the lake, they are pretty neat for info when you're out and about. Good luck fishing! Hope you got your digital with, coupled with the laptop, we're waiting for pics of the big one!

Well i do have the digital with me but it's just me and the dog so it's a little tough for a good picture.

Here is the update on osakis any way: i got three northerns today 27" 25" and a 24" and then at 4pm i finally got a 14.25" walleye and then got a 10.5" perch. i have seen lots of bait fish and perch on the screen and about 4-5 walleyes and a couple dog fish. But it just seems the walleye bit is not going on osakis at all. Talk to a few people and they say the same thing. Got some bait today and the guy working said most people gave up on walleyes and started crappie fishing. sounds like people are getting a few crappies but all are real nice in size. I guess i dont know what a few is but i wouldnt think more than 5 or so.

      The thumb nail method is tough for those that chew em!   I don't but know people who do.   I haven't used an official split ring pliers but a couple precision sizes have worked well.  This is a cheap set I like to have around.

      I use forage minnows and other types of jigging spoons also. Usually tipped with minnow head or waxies.

      Out of curiosity what do you all think this cost them?  Not including the truck damage.

      i'm thinking of heading up and trying for some tulibees for the smoker- anyone been catching them?      how are the roads out to the flats?  i was thinking of coming on from the east side of the lake- maybe Hunters.

      Decided to try trout fishing through the ice for the first time and it was awesome. We were setup in 80ft of water and were catching them 20 ft down jigging a silver kastmaster spoon. It was pretty cool to see how the fish acted with the underwater camera. They were like sharks when they came in. We had probably 30 or more trout come in and check out the bait but only few takers.  Was a lot of fun. Definitly going to explore more trout lakes. Doesn't get much better then fishing on lakes with no houses on them!    Here is a video of the trip with underwater video of the strikes:  https://youtu.be/6JuJhq-50X4
