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.

      What's your fish of choice to pursue? A weekday fish you could find after work are crappies, the basin bite on your local lake/lakes could make for a fun night bite. Panfish in general are fun to chase anytime, northerns are fun to target too but that's more of a weekend thing until we start gaining more daylight. Walleyes are punks to me and I've never been patient enough to target them unless I'm on LOW or Upper Red lol.

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.
