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 the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
