Jighead I was there today and the only fish we caught were on rocks. 0 mud, 0 gravel, 5 on rocks with slip bobbers. Were rigging on the flats with no luck. Fished Indian point from 11 to 12:30 and boated 3 fish. Saw a few others around us caught. Had to be off the lake by 1 to get home for kids baseball or we would have stayed on the rocks for a while longer.

jighead,

Many fish have been caught over the last couple of days by guys corking on the edge of the mud flats also.

Does bobber fishing usually work better at night or is it an all day thing?

I use bobbers more at night, but it can be an all day thing. You have to have the waves pounding into the rocks though.

Some people are having success pulling spinners already out on the gravel and the mud. That's what I have heard. I saw the PWT leader board and it looks like the guys that we have talked to were having success that way.

The only way I caught fish last weekend was with spinners. Seemed like the only thing they wanted.

      Me either but I have given a few a chance to be! Like the time one just opened our door up on LOW and stepped in at the same time as saying DNR. I did not see a badge and said where's your badge? He had a mini one inside his coat on his shirt!  We all laughed, showed him our lic's and fish and he went on his way!

      Had a wheelhouse rented out of Isle Saturday through Monday AM.  Went several places in search of shiners, they were hard to come by, so had a mix of suckers, rainbows and fatheads.   Was set up in 28' of water. 3 eye's total (2 in the 16" range and a 21.5").  Two came on rattle reel with a rainbow and plain hook, the other came on a bobber - same set-up.  Caught a few perch jigging.     Everything came on a whole minnow.  Nothing on heads, maggots, waxies etc.   Popped a bunch of holes in shallower water and got nothing on tip-ups or hole hopping.  Planned to go east of The Graveyard, but I thought I should get home before the ice storm hit.

      I'm sure it will be pretty slushy this weekend. But it will refreeze next week end. If the forecast is right anyway!

      I'm not really complaining, just sharing my experience.  And i never had any preconceived notion that all CO's were pricks, it just sucks that the one experience I had was far from pleasant.   One of my favorite shows is North Woods Law - the one where they follow the Maine DNR around.  Anyways,  not sure if they're just being nice because of the cameras, but they all seem like stand-up guys and are pretty good communicators.   I've always had respect for those guys and the work that they do.  All I would ask for in return is mutual respect and a simple "have a good day".
