Eyes and or Slimebacks

Recommended Posts

Chuby Minnow

My son has talked me into trying for big Slimebacks rather than our usuall trip to Red or LOW for eyes and crappies. So, I think we are going to head for Leech on Thursday. Can anyone give me a direction as to where we can set up where I may have a chance at an eye while my son is having fun catching his northerns in shallower (or weedy) areas nearby?

Does any resorts plow roads in sucker bay or portage bays or is there any type of vehicle access to these areas. Is the ice even thick enough for vehicle access?

Any help would be appreciated. We have never ice fished this lake before.

Not sure about anything on the big lake as of now but there is decent accsess to walkerbay. The north end out from Ericson lading is producing walleyes and perch. There is an area of basicly un touched weeds where Im sure there would be some pike action along with walleye and perch.

The road from the landing heads due east, 1/2 way to sand point and to the north of the main road is the area im talking about. Here there is a good stretch of weeds in 13 to 15 ft of water. Find the weeds and you should find the pike, you will be able to drill holes and look down to find them. The walleyes really seem to feed in this cold weather, atleast in deeper areas.

Funny thing about this year is normally you have a small evening window of walleye activity, but this year you can have short spirts of activity through out the day.

Portage Bay has been good. Northland resort just north of Federal Dam has a road plowed. We always catch northerns while fishing for perch and eyes. just look for the houses and fish off the drop.

      Last night my son and out went out for quick panfish trip to a local lake after dinner. Did not have any live bait but we usually do well tossing small jigs/plastics. Surprisingly we were the only boat at the landing and the only boat out fishing on this heavily developed lake. It did not take us long to find the huge sunnies. They were really stacked in 4-6'. The lake was pretty calm and we could hundreds of them swimming under the boat. We didn't stay there long but they were very aggressive. I had one that touched 10" and a few others over 9. We did not keep any. Looking for active crappies we went to spot number 2. Again going super shallow we could see quite a few in 2-3' around there beds. They of course were pretty spooky and did not like the boat being so close. We backed out and tossed into and around lilly pads. We ended up catching about a dozen. All released. I wish I wouldn't have left my phone in the truck as I would have loved to get a picture. Just amazing how black they are right now! Again didn't stay very long. Just a quick trip to scratch the itch..

      Saturday Norwegian Bay was 50-51 degrees. After the cold wind the sun showed up and baked it all day Sunday. By Monday afternoon Temps were around 62 with Black Bay reaching 65-66.  We left Tuesday Morning so I'm sure the fishing is suddenly on fire. I'm surprised that when I walk down the seafood aisle in the grocery store that the shelves don't suddenly go bare.

      I upgraded my electronics this year to a Humminbird Helix 10. I love it so far with the exception of not being able to split the screen into 4 separate screens. The max that you can do is 3. I would really like to be able to have the map, sonar, down imaging, and side imaging on the screen at the same time while trolling. I emailed tech support and they said it's not something that is an option at this time. Right now when I'm fishing I switch back and forth between map, sonar, and DI and sonar, DI, and SI. Is there anyone else that thinks this should be an option? I don't know see why you can't customize the screen to show whichever features you prefer instead of only using the preloaded options that Humminbird decided on. I have thought about emailing the company weekly asking if they have that ability yet but wanted to see if anyone else thinks it should be an option.

      Awesome fish. Still some freak crappies in the vermillion river, but don't know if 5 lbs has been approached since.  Not world record news but North Dakota had a state record walleye caught recently. 15lb 13oz. Broke record that stood since 1959. Still a few pounds off Minnesota record 😏

      It clears like that every spring. Nice catch. Any size to the striper?

      The water in Cannon lake is the clearest I've ever seen it. You can see the bottom in 5ft easily. Caught a few perch and a striped bass. Also saw some big bass around the fishing pier by the beach.

      Dang ,,, Another nice day to be out on the water on Fish Lake  ,,, Too bad the fish didn't think it was nice enough to eat what we offered !! Might have to switch bodies of water!!!

      Lake Sylvia is great for bass also lake Francis near Kimball is good too a little smaller but great action! The Mississippi sounds fun I should try it myself.
