Antbody Get Out This Weekend??

7 posts in this topic

Well, I was just wondering if anybody got out this weekend and braved the weather? Not me- I had some things to do around the house and it seemed really windy to be messing with the portable by myself crazy.gif I did get out Wed, Thurs, Fri for a few hours each day and managed a few nice walleyes and crappies. I also caught the biggest perch I have ever seen and cut him open just to find the meat was full of worms!

Jim, the picture in the paper turned out great!!

The picture turned out real well, but was wondering why you had to ask if anyone got out fishing this weekend?? confused.gif Did the Little Woman crack the whip on you to get some of those projects done, and ban fishing until they are? Heh, heh, heh grin.gif

We now know who hears the pants in that family cool.gif

I know what you mean about the wind and portables. I didn't want to bother with that. I did a little tip up fishing from my car on Wild Rice yesterday, but didn't get anything.

Bunch of us did the Kewanis contest and then went eye fishing with good success. Good thing I had my ice anchors.

I should have known you would have a remark, "Mr. Great Outdoors". Naw, I was just curious if anybody took advantage of the last walleye weekend till May or was out and about for lakers. Crack the whip-Ha! I just figured it would be a good weekend to get chores done and then fish on nice days! smirk.gif I have a few more stops to make before ice fishing is done. Going back to Ontario after Lakers again on March 16-18, would like another day of chasing streamers and maybe this Wed, head out to Burntside. Can't forget the crappies either!

      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 .
