New Personal Best on Foster

9 posts in this topic

With the day off for the holiday I ventured out to Foster with the wife. Ended up catching 7 rainbows from 13-19 inches and a few dink sunnies. The 19" rainbow is my new personal best from Foster. The picture doesn't do this fish justice, it had great coloring and was an absolute hog. She swam away nicely after the photo. Foster19Rainbow.jpg

Caught all my trout on my deadsticking rod with a minnow. I was jigging with waxies and could only catch small gills.

Andy: I was the bearded guy in the group that took your picture. We struggled all day but the brats and burgers on the grill were good. Nice fish.

Thanks for helping out Sgt. Too bad the fish didn't cooperate better for you, but it looked like you guys were taking advantage of the nice weather.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
