Ralph nice cat,I now have seen the extra large northern at Games Henchun creek several times and so have many others.

Aguy and his special gal made our day when without much coxing she would put on her waders and walk on side of creek down to Henchun and back through streama nd give us a glimpse of many northern walleye carp etc.

In return we kept throwing nice suunies from pier into their bucket.

Saturday stopped by and many buckets were filled with good eater sunnies.

Crappies were starting to come in.

Sparcebag,

We had 12 keepers and THREW BACK anything over 20 and a couple small ones. I have your number now and I'll try to get you out there with me. I've been pretty busy that it's even kept me from being out since. We were using a lindy rig and a leech.

Forget the walleyes...we've been fishing cats on the mississippi--actually just got done a little bit ago--nailing the 5 to 10lbers, especially between 10:30p and 12:00a using chicken livers. Nothing like a beautiful night, a campfire (we cooked trout in tinfoil--mmmmmmmm!) and a tight line every few minutes. What a blast. Oh and the beers weren't bad either smile.gif

I might get out for walleyes again in a couple weeks but we'll have to see.

good luck to all fishermen this weekend...I'm going to bed now and sleeping until we have to be at the field tomorrow for our 1:30pm game!

      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)
