Last week report...

6 posts in this topic

Headed up to LOTW Mar 2 3 4, and was wondering what's been happening up there. Heard some reports of the week before last, but was wondering if anyone has been up there more recent. Has the snow played a role in the bite?

Still able to find fish around that 20' mark?

Are the pike starting to go again...not just in key locations?

Any imput would be great.

Thought about going out of Morris Point.

Thanx smirk.gif

Fished over Pine Island yesterday in 28-29'. In between plowing out 2 houses, getting stuck 6 times, moving 1 house, banking, & fixing a broken hyd. fitting on the plow I caught a 17 & 16" eye, lost another heavy one, 8 or 10 keeper sauger up to 15", & 2 nice 12" perch from 8-4:30. Twice that many dinks & some ciscos thrown in to irritate me.

Had a Marcum set up on either side of the house & looked like I was at a Kornakova/Sharapova match. Had something working on one or the other most of the time. Don't think I had 1 fish show up to active jigging but would still lift or pound bottom every few minutes.

Many fish just showed up and then would have to be teased up 2-6 feet, sometimes 3 or 4 times before biting. Lots of them just appeared as a disturbance on the bottom signal & had to be teased up. Had 2 large marks that followed but wouldn't close.

Had on a small red glow rattle jig and a small green glow rattle varmit & shiner head. The green may have had a slight edge during the day but everything after 3PM came on the red.

Thought things would slow down when the wind kicked up but didn't seem to matter.

Thanks for the report...as I thought though things have been slow eh. No matter, the rest of the crew backed out due to weather, probabally for the best.

God luck to all you hardcore locals this weekend, I'm envious!

Thanx Dutchman for info... maybe I'll be back up around the 16th when the snow has blown off and melted?? LOL!

Thanx again smirk.gif

RoyalDutchman: Sounds like an intersting day for you all the way around. Sounds like a fish fry in the making though. We're getting hit pretty good down here right now, they're talking 12-21" possible. We're not far away from that. Stay safe this weekend, and good luck. Bill

Hey Terry,

I think you were more help to him than I was! I believe he was able to drill the next day but definately needed some factory support later. Hard to keep everyone staight but I think he is an FM'er.

Max, How'd it go with the auger?

      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait

      Hello, I am a young angler looking for PONDS I live in the metro area close to Plymouth. I am mostly a bass angler but love some big crappie and gills. I have lots of ponds I know of and can trade spots, matter of fact I know a pond in the metro that is around 10 acres and stocked with a lot of YES I SAID TROUT and it is not courthouse. I will trade you spots and I love private ponds and would love to get access to some small private lakes or ponds. I am a catch and release angler just looking for some pond bass. I will trade spots with you just message me.

      If you can bring your boat to shagawa which is close my friends up there are doing very well on eyes lots of small ones but pletty of eaters. Burntside is a not the easiest walleye lake but it is a night bite. If you like pout you can get some all summer long there. I like to fish near the little finger bays that have mud bottoms.

      I would be cautious about removing seats and decks as they are usually part of the integral strength of the boat . If you remove anything make sure you add brackets or such to help keep the boat strength intact . For example bench seats that run the entire width of the boat are attached to the floor and both sides and help to strengthen the boat, if they are removed the sides of the boat are weakened, your modification should include a way to compensate .
