Well, I just got back from fishing up in Ontario again. Fishing was somewhat slow. I ended up with 2 Lakers- one about 12 lbs and another one around 9 lbs. A friend of mine caught one around 16 lbs. We had alot of lookers, but not alot of biters. We also ended up fishing Walleyes the first night up there which was fun. Caught a real nice eye around 5 lbs and a few more real nice fish smile.gif Last night, we ended up getting stuck out there in a white out snowstorm which shut the fishing down to zero. Ended up with a foot of snow in just a few hours and we ended up getting the truck buried out there. Thank god for the people from Manitoba who were in the same boat we were. We ended up helping each other out to get out of there. I never knew a 3/4 ton truck could get airborne...but I witnessed it! All in all, good trip with the exception of our fishing time reduced drastically from the weather-but that's the way she goes...We will get them next year.

I can finally say the ice season for me is over. What an incredible season it was! Caught alot of real nice fish, made some really good friends, and just spent almost the entire winter doing what I really love- Ice fishing! Hope everybody had as much fun as I did!!!

Take care until next ice season,

Justin

What lake were you fishing? Numerous lakes we usually fish have been fairly slow compared to previous years. At least the fish you did get were pigs!

Lake of the Woods. Yeah, I think the water levels have alot to do with where the fish are now and spots that used to produce well. We did see alot of fish, but that storm that moved in on us really screwed things up. I am going to be putting in serious time up there next ice season as I have a cabin to use up there all winter. I just wish I didn't have to wait so long to get back up there as the next few weekends will probably be great weather! Ah, well, those fish will be there 9 months from now! wink.gif

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
