Big eyes:

I haven't checked nor have I heard anything on the tullibees. However, I can tell you that the last 2 to 3 years have been very non-productive. If I get up there any time soon I will post.

The last time I was up I smacked the tulibees. I caught around a dozen 16-18"ers. Problem is, I was fishing for crappie. I only got two of those. The tulibee were suspended and over the deepest water in our bay. I have heard they are good smoked so I am hoping to sample some from our neighbors up north to see if it is something worth buying a smoker for. They were fun to catch so if they are tasty to boot....all the better. laugh.gif

How about a report from an absolute rookie out fishing for his first tullibees....

Dad and I went out on Leech on Saturday, neither one of us had angled for them before. Luckily we run into some fellows that gave us some good pointers.

We marked some fish, actually caught 9 total. From what I understand, that is pretty slow but we had fun and will be back again next year. Spent most of the day out there, got a good burn on the face and the bite came and went all day long.

Put the fish in the smoker on Sunday and we are good to go for a little bit with fresh smoked Tullibees.

The ice where we were at was really getting rotten, actually dropped the wheeler in not too far off shore. Had to winch it out with the other wheeler, I wouldn't try that again, even foot traffic was getting shakey.

      I belive you need to pick up permit day before you enter when getting a motor day use permit that's how it works on snowbank

      I'm heading up to Blackduck for the long July 4th weekend and we are hoping on maybe getting out on Red for a day.  I've only ice fished it twice,  so I'm wondering about the best places to launch the boat.  It looks like there is only the one public launch in Waskish.  The 2 times I ice fished up there we went out of JR's Corner resort.  Would it be best to just launch from one of the resorts.  Any advice would be appreciated,  thanks in advance.

      6/17-24 at LaBelle's Birch Point lodge in NW Bay.   walleyes seemed scattered--trolled crankbaits and lindy-rigged leaches.  cool, wet, windy weather half the week.  no bass.

      Juan that is great area for smallies. The water looks clear for the rum it's time. It's a long way to the next landing so you might want put in in Princeton and fish to that access You can get out at highway 47 so that is not to bad. I forgot about that I was thinking you had get almost to Cambridge.

      Thanks for the update.  Keep this updated.  Heading up on Saturday for the week and need to dial in the bait for the week or if we are going to be spending all day looking for active fish.

      Been a decent year on Kab, but the variable weather has fishing in an unpredictable pattern too. Much like last year, saugers have made up a big chunk of the catch, but walleyes are coming around. LOTS of small 9"-11" 'eyes around mixed with some 15"-16" 'eyes and sauger. Some folks are still picking up some of the jumbo perch too. Little pike are everywhere and quite the nuisance.

      You kind of hit the weather bad this past weekend.  Wind, rain, and more wind not to mention cold fronts moving thru.  I was on the lake my cabin is on in the general area of Red and I had a tough time scrapping together a meal - and I've fished the lake for 15+ years.  Sometimes mother nature throws you a curve and no matter how good the lake is sometimes it doesn't matter.

      Looks like a Namakan fish.

      Hit the lake before 6:00 this morning. Fishing very slow again. Lots of mayflies on the water. Water 64 degrees. Got a bass at first stop but no more of those. ABout 5 walleyes and four pike in nine hours. Quit just in time to fight the 22 MPH wind (twice what was predicted) all the way home. Fish in 25 FOW. Most on Fin-S-Fish. numerous missed bites. Yesterday hardly missed a one. Not so today.   June 27, 2017 video link

      Froggin is a blast! I couldn't get any topwater action Saturday but just under the surface with a spinnerbait they were crushing it. Early morning it was suspending jerkbaits on weedlines. Not a single swirl on top.
