It was a good day.

4 posts in this topic

Tom M, and I went out today and the fish came out to play. We must have cought 25-30 Walleyes. None over 16". 7 or 8 Northerns, all over 22" and one that was 32". A 28" Bowfin (Dogfish) which we should have wighted and a 17" White Bass. All fish came from 7-9 FOW trolling at 3+mph. The 32" northern Pike was cought while trolling at 3mph and I was reeling in fast to check my crankbait for weeds. There were no weeds on the crankbait only fish grin.gif.

My neighbor said he cought a 31" Northern today also. So I say; It was a good day.

All the Eyes were over flat gravel bottom near weed with deep water close by. I know it was gravel because my crankbait could bang bottom with out picking up weeds and moss in the areas where the eyes were. Oh yea! I almost forgot. The wind was blowing into the weeds in the areas where the Walleye's were. Oh it is so nice to have 10-15mph winds grin.gif. That 20-30mph stuff is getting tiresome frown.gif.

I tend to find Bass and Perch on the calmer side of the weeds/lake. Look to areas where the wind has been pounding shallow water, main lake point, sunken rock piles and such.

Remember, Speed and depth, Speed and depth, Speed and depth. Yes, I just watched the end of The Wizzard of OZ confused.gif.

      Don't beat yourself up over it at all. I moved several times and you still caught more than I did. Looking forward to this weekend's weather, will not even need a shelter to check depths and move around..... Fingers crossed, I haven't found fish all year. Sure am amazed at the wheelhouses though, absolutely mind numbing the #'s...

      Fished Cannon lake this evening. I bounced around from 12-5ft of water and started to mark fish in 8ft so I set up there until dark. I saw a bunch of fish come in for a look but not one nibble. Tried every color and style spoon and jig I had but nothing.

      Best thing you can do if you won't be around is to put the house on fresh ice, don't drill any holes, and put it on blocks.  When people get into trouble is if it gets windy and they have open holes under the house, that rain starts blowing around on top of the ice, and starts swirling down into the holes under the house....that swirling water EATS ice, and can sink a house pretty quick.     As as far as the ice on the lakes, if you have 14-15 inches of good ice like most places around, you'll have no worries if you do what is posted above.
