Bring ADVIL!

Me and Muddy were out yesterday and the weather was cold but the fishing was red hot. Put in at Birthdale around 10am and by 10:15 we were tangled up with a PIG. After a good ten minutes of wrestling we got'em in the net. The first female of the day 28.5 incher. Not bad for Berkley Gulp! Muddy said I have to try it. So I did, and boy am I glad. Next fish around 10:45 another fat lady. This one came in a tad over 27 inches. To make long story short we ended up whit our eaters and 3 over 26. Just another day of wrist wrenching walleye action on the Rainy River.

Keep your line tight and the Gulp in your pocket.

Meatplow, Do you think Gary Yamamoto worms will work or should I stick to the Gulp? Also, should I bring my Baron so all my leech friends can fish with me or should I bring the duck boat and my dog? Ramp conditions???

I'm not meatplow obviously, but I was up there on Sunday and you could launch a large boat once they moved the ice out in the mornings. Its up to you, either boat would work, there are more rocks and hazards to hit this year with the low water possibly, and I bet your dog is a better buddy than the leech guys anyway...

      The Bay is so different from the Lake.  The heavy breeze is keeping the lake open.  Things calm down Fri to Sun that will most likely freeze the lake over.  Then we get strong winds again on Mon to Wed that could likely blow it open again.  You may be able to fish the bay, but I am doubting the lake.  JMHO.  I can wait, but I am getting the itch.

      I have a 2015 21' Ice Castle RV that has two house batteries. I added the second to the house. It will run the furnace fan all night but it is running a lot slower by morning. There is a noticeable increase in fan speed when I start the generator in the morning. I am thinking of adding a third battery to the house to make up the difference.

      Any area ice reports? I'm hearing that most of the smaller bodies of water in the area have now frozen over. Should make it out sometime this weekend to try my luck . Good luck, and please stay safe
