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.

      If you make up it up this way at all I'll have the peg on a good bite somewhere. Sometimes traveling a little farther north makes ice fishing more enjoyable. Keep on posting, we have tons of well educated anglers that roam these forums!

      I'm slacking bud, I haven't done any of that yet lol. The excitement is here though, been talking to some co-workers lately about all things ice fishing. Soon enough guys!!

      My troubles are that even with the hyfax on the slides the munchkin take a little bit of a kick to get started.    My sled does not have studs and has carbides on the skis. So when I hook up to the house with the tow bar the track spins without breaking the house loose. It's like hooking it to a truck. Too much power on the sled side and no ability to transfer it to forward motion.    The 4-wheeler with chains has zero problems. Pulls it like it's not even there.

      I'd like to see this expanded to help revive our pike size and population.
