Last week report...

Recommended Posts

daddyducker

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?

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?

      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.

      Been past there many times, never was able to read the whole sign since slowing down could get a guy run over.  Thanks.
