Luanched from the Bluffs around 4:30. Buzzed down to prescott and trolled some lead core for a while, spot #2 put out a nice 18"er...22' of water sand bottom.

Trolled for a while more with nothing, tried spinners and 3-ways with minnow baits on some new spots to no avail. Around 7:30 went to another location this time closer to the Kinni, went to lindy and leech and boated two more just over 15". These came on top of the break in 10-12'.

Kinda slow but a beautiful evening on the water. Drank lots of water.... grin.gif

Can't wait for Saturday morning!

Good luck and give a report.

I Was gone already but thanks for the response anyways-Caught Three shortys after the rain stopped on lindys and crawlers- all on the sconi shorline, same area as you were in, south of the kinni - Only marked fish in 20 feet -Maybe because of the nasty lightning ?- I have alot of respect for guys like Walley1 and Turk and that can continue to put fish in the box right now-The last 2 weeks have been brutal for me.Still Love that Place though

I was out last saturday and we could only find sauger. We fished a variety of spots south of the Kinni and a variety of presentations. We found a few eater saug's but most were dinks. So this weekend I wanna try trolling cranks more, to cover more ground. Plus my girl friend just found a shoe box full of Rapala's( atleast 35) at a garage sale for $15!!I am usually a lindy rig/ spinner rig kinda guy, but I wanna improve my trolling skills. Anyone been trolling cranks? Any success? What depth/ speed do you troll? Any how, good luck to you all. I see ya on the Croix Sat. a.m.

I troll alot of leadcore during the summer and into fall...it's a great tool for locating fish. I have been running from 15'-25' typically, at speeds ranging from 2.0-3.0 mph.

I'll be out Sat. hopefully before 5:00 a.m. doing the same.

I'll start off lindy riggen, see how that goes then switch over to bottom bouncers and if I locate fish I'll switch back to lindy riggen, going to try some minnows again in the morning last time they were nothing more then striper magnets, this year so far crawlers have been the key!

      I haven't been here in ages. But I have fished Moonshine, Caribou, Trout, Little Trout, Wabana, Bee Cee (when it held trout), Lucky, Kremer and Nickel. So this thread caught my eye.

      I live on the north side of Cass on the Pughole. We had 30 inches of ice out in front of my dock yesterday. Pughole is the flowage between Kitchie and Cass. I'm 200 yards off Cass and the current is pretty strong there. Top few inches was pretty mushy. Nothing happening as far as fish yet. But they are coming. Jumbos move in soon. Also seen a truck out off of Star Island on Monday evening. I imagine they have more ice out on the main lake than I have. I'm for sure going to be out ice fishing through next week at my place. Ice hasn't even begun to pull from shore at my place.

      Hey there DUCKHTR . No need for a guide to hunt divers on Leech or Big Winnie . Your spots that you hunted early season on Leech will also be good spots for later season . I don't duck hunt anymore , but I used to hunt a lot on Winnie , mostly all my hunting there was on the north end Third River Flowage . Travel north from Deer River up Hwy 46 to the sign that directs you to turn left , then travel west on that gravel road for about 10-12 miles to the 3rd river boat landing . You should have no problem launching your boat there . From the landing outward is a lot of tall reeds on both sides of you  , this flowage widens out as you go farther out ,and depending on your wind direction on the day of your hunt , you can just pick and choose a spot  , all the way out , and down to Mallard Point where it really opens up to big water on Winnie . You will need to buy up 3-4 dozen Bluebill decoys , and also use your Mallard decoys you must already have . We used to have great shoots in that area of the lake . In the dark of the morning when your heading out you may have other hunters shine a flashlight your way , they are just letting you know that they are already set up in that spot , don't worry , there is plenty of room for many different hunting groups in the flowage . Once you get a few hunts below your belt , you will then have a better understanding of some of your favorite spots to set up ..  I had one particular spot we used to call the "Meat Market" because we used to kill so many ducks there in that spot . Just put out your decoys in the spot you choose , and then  pull your boat into the reeds parallel to the water , wait for legal shooting hrs , and have at it . From my recollection the Bills would start to trickle down from the north around the 20th or so of Oct .. I I hope this helps you out somewhat .

      Well played.  Wish more people had that attitude.  Even a reduced statewide limit and/or a minimum keeper size would be fine by me.

      I crossed paths with the person that works over there yesterday & got to ask if they would be netting on the Opener? Their reply was it might be July.  We'll see, may run into them again in the near future.

      Went for a short hunt yesterday morning. Heard a few gobbling on the roost on the neighbors land. They did not come my way and did not make any sounds once they flew down. It was great to be in the blind with the bow again. I am always amazed how loud the spring woods are. Every bird in the country was going crazy. Ducks, geese, crows, woodpeckers... music to my ears! Might get out again Sunday afternoon with my son and then myself Monday morning depending if we see anything Sunday....

      Tom, good thoughts now we need good weather!

      I have to admit I never heard of it.  I will certainly give it a try.  I am surprised by the number of people that haven't done the cheeks before.  This will really get em.  Thanks.
