Which weekend and which boat? Mmmmm...

5 posts in this topic

What is everyones opinion on the fishing for this weekend vs. next weekend. I know its hard to tell but we have plans to head up this friday - monday. We only have two people going and we have the option to take a 14 lund/9.5 johnson or we can take a 19 sylvan/175 mercury. I have only fished the areas between birchdale and the church. I just am looking for some good tips or info.

My brain cant take the stress!!!! Other years have never been this hard to plan. My wife is ready to kick me out of the house grin.gif !!

I am heading up Sunday thru Wednesday. Bringing my 16 foot lund with 90hp. Hope the weather holds out and it is not to cold. I would bring the smaller boat if I had the option.

I've seen two guys in a 12' flat bottom with a 5 hp briggs and stratton. I'm bringing a 16' lund w/ 25 merc but we have four guys which will be nice if we have to push across a little ice.

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
