Prior Lake last night

1 post in this topic

went out last night from 6:30 to 9:30 (had to get off the lake before sportsman access closed ya know) parked my truck 75 yards onto the lake and walked out to where I thought I was gonna be in 20+ feet of water SE of where I parked. Drilled the holes, set up the tent, got the heater going, turned on the Marcum LX-5, 10 feet of water. "WHAT? You have got to be kidding me!!!!!!!" and other such things were said outloud. Then I looked at the screen again, lot of fish down there. I proceeded to catch 50+ sunnies and crappies(about 50/50 split) in 10 FOW. most were small, caught some 9"+ gills and a 3 10"+ crappies. Here is one of the crappies I caught, yeah, the pictures stinks but I only had the camera phone, notice where my headlight is pointed, I will do better next time.

I stopped fishing because I ran out of waxies at 9. I couldn't get them to hit minnows or maggots, they only wanted waxies. I have never run out of bait.....

Lot of snow pressure out there, the water came up about 2 inches when I drilled the hole. I want to thank all the snowmobilers out there for making semi packed down trails out there for me to pull the ice house out with.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.
