Adrians 2/24 - 2/25

3 posts in this topic

We fished all day Saturday and Sunday morning until 12:30. We ended up with 15 Walleye's and Saugers. Nothing big but good eaters. We did okay I guess considering the weather.

The highlight of the trip was someone from the resort caught a 14+ pound Walleye while we were there. I think they said it was 14lb 4 oz but I am not sure on the ounces. The person working at the resort showed us the picture. It had a huge belly.

Wayne, were heading up this weekend, out of Adrians. Do you care to share any more info, like how far past the island, depth, any magic lure, river shiners or fatheads?

Thanks

I am not sure how far past the island but we rented one of their houses and it appeared most of them were in a row. The Walleyes seemed to like the fat heads better than the shiners. I do not think the sauger cared one way or the other. We caught most of the fish Friday morning I think because of the weather.

I used everything in the box but they liked best a round glow jig. I had one of these on a pole at all times. I do not know what they are called but they are simple round jigs about 1/4 ounce. I would not call the color white it is kind of a very light yellow/green.

We used the shiners from the resort. They give you about four dozen for 7 or 8 dollars. They were on the smaller side but seemed to work okay.

We were in 28 feet of water.

Hope this helps.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
