Xmas Day Report

Recommended Posts

Royal Dutchman

Finally had nearly a full day on the lake and had a great time in 30' at end of Adrian's Road.

Caught on white or pink glow Rattle Varmits/shiner head and fathead on a hammered gold/ pink/white glow Gem-N-Eye & bobber.

M had a tiny Lil' Jack silver/white glow/shiner head and a fathead on pink Genz Worm & bobber.

Had more bobber action than other trips. Probably 1/2 & 1/2.

No real hot times but when 1 rod went 2 or 3 would often go. Had to bring some fish off the bottom 2 or 3 times to get them to bite and as high as ten feet off for some. Wiffs on the bobber line often hit again if you dropped it right back down.

Nice mix of eyes and sauger with a limit of 14-17". Nothing big although M lost a couple heavies. Not sure why, just first time on the ice for her this season and maybe too aggresive. That's OK, kept her from out-fishing me!

Good Morning!!I thought I was the only one up reading and posting at this hour. To early to fish yet. I was out yesterday over at Zippel in 20 fow. Had my house in the same spot since I brought it out there. But the bite there starts at 9 am and lasts now until 12:30 or so. Then about 4 pm pick I hung a swedish pimple and some "too big,not big enough" fish came in. Gold/pink jig, Glo green eye-dropper, and glo green buck-shot rattle spoon, was the key for us.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
