I didn't know it at the time but when you guys were pulling out I passed by your house with the sled, then Dad told me who you were but you were on your way to Birch at that point otherwise I would have stopped by, figured maybe you would be back on Saturday but you didn't show.

How long had you guys been up? I think Dad had said you guys did well too.

Fishing was good this past weekend, Perch were definetly on the bite ( nice sized Perch too ) mix in a few Walleye and Saugers and there wasn't hardly a dull moment. Pike were a little slower but I think they have plenty to feed on judging from the amount of small Walleye and Perch we caught.

7 of us were up there fishing out of 2 perm. houses and 1 portable and brought home plenty of fish.

Couldn't really put the fish on a definet lure or bait they liked, caught some of Glo / Pink Go Devils, Buckshots Rattle Spoons, Blue / Pink Fireball leadheads, Gold Punkin' jigs and some others I didn't know what they were called. Most of the spoons I used, I took the treble hook off and put on a dropper hook instead that seemed to help. We went thru alot of bait for the weekend both frozen and live, seemed like live bait was starting to win out by Sunday.

If I see you guys at the shack next time, I'll stop by and get a report!

Bow, any new reports? Doesn't look like I will make it up there until the 1st or 2nd week in March. If you go, throw me a report every once in a while, I'll check in when I have access.

Minneman,

Couple weeks ago you could get around, snow was hard, you might run into a drift or 2 that might stop you but usually you could backup and hit it again and get thru. You could drive out from the Marina or Birch Pt. Might want to give the Marina a call and get the latest though.

Not sure what has happend since the big winds have gone thru. Snowmobile will be faster to get around but it was rough too.

Good luck fishing!

Mike

Mike I thought you were going west? Wouldn’t it be better to keep grin.gifon fishing instead of riding a snowmobile? crazy.gif

Sounds like more snow on the way again. Hopefully the yard won’t fill in to bad. It’s not fun cleaning the yard when it’s so miserable out. cry.gif

Fish,

Are you catching up?

We head out Friday........ the fish will still be there when I get back anyway.

When a guy is looking at snow like this, we MUST travel!

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

      Nice Crappie!

      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.
    • Fish Head
      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.
