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.

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.

      Boy, some people must just hate their life.

      I recommend considering other lakes.  URL by the 4th is nearly void of walleye.  8 years or so ago, we did a two-family trip and only caught fresh water drum.  Star Trib Article

      I was honored to be part of the "Veterans on Lake Superior" trip again this year. Channel six did a nice story about the Veterans. They were a great group out on the water.   http://www.kbjr6.com/video?clipId=13445592&autostart=true

      Hi Cliff -   Thanks for the update on the hatch.  Is this usually a bust for 2 weeks once the big hatches start?  Will be up the 30th-9th, but still excited since its the first time staying for a full week at the in-laws cabin.  Hoping to provide a few updates on the West Side through the week.

      Thanks for the info.  I searched before and after this thread for any old threads on this topic.  I got nothing before and this thread is the only one that pops up after.  I will keep looking online or stop at one of the big box stores.    Tight lines.

      J-Roy,  I use UL rod and 4 lb a lot when throwing jigs. I have found that the lighter the jig head, the more fish bite and the more you hook. Wind will mess up using light jigs though. When fishing heavy jigs, cranks, top water or spoons, I use heavier line and rod. If fishing weeds need heavy line as well.   Hook ups/bites is much higher with lite jigs. I missed about 50% of hits yesterday using 1/2 oz head. Landed about 90% of hits a few days ago when using 1/8 oz head. Tough to fish 1/8 oz on even 8 lb line so I stick with 4 lb .
