I was down there Sat. morning and did pretty well. 5 eyes, 3 sauger, a big crappie, cattie, a rockbass, several smallies......and probibly the biggest walleye of my life! I've never got one in the 30" range, but I think I had one on. It hit like a snag, like most where doing, and as I turned the boat around with the troller it took off! I didn't think it was too big at first, but after a few hard runs I was loosening my drag in respect. I got it up off the bottom and within a few feet of the boat,once, and with a flash of his tail he was GONE! The rig busted at the loop to the swivel. I was sadd... and I still am. Ohh well maybe next time. I'll be up north this weekend but I can't wait to try the river again.

I was fishin a worm harness, no spinner or float, just a bead w/ a nightcrawler. Found fish from 13-28 fow, with 16-24 fow being the best for walleye. Most fish seemed to be in concentrated areas and they would hit it hard once and hold it. The 2 walleye I kept where both hooked deeply in the throat with atleast one of my hooks, and I wasn't giving them much line.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.
