Quick Update...

5 posts in this topic

After much searching, trying different presentations and staying mobile, my clients and I were able to get on some nice 'eyes today. Our smallest was ~16" and we had a few that pushed 20". As a bonus, one of my clients stuck a beautiful smallie that touched the 20" mark on the tape. Just a horse. I'll post some photos tomorrow evening. Hopefully I have some to add from the trip tomorrow. smirk.gif

We spent much of the day riggin', draggin' jigs, pitchin' and trolling cranks and even some corkin'. Our focus was on murky water and emergent vegetation. Turned out, by day's end, that we were way off! We ended up getting our fish pitching jigs and leeches to submergent vegetation in 6 - 10' of water that was crystal clear. We actually saw a few 'gills flare around the jig on a couple of the fish. That made setting the hook obvious. grin.gif

I'll put together a more detailed report tomorrow evening. I think I'm off to a smaller lake in the morning but we'll see what happens.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
