From what I"ve heard from a couple of my buddies sarah has been pretty slow....or maybe they just dont know how to fish..lol. I heard that the only fish caught today for thier derby was an 8" walleye. On the other hand, ya dont know til ya try. I am thinking of just keeping my house on shetek.

I'm thinkin we should hit the north side of Shetek. Some neighbors of mine were at the derby on Sarah over the weekend and didn't catch anything. However, we all know fishing Sarah you have to be mobile and with the weather they just drilled and hunkered down.

Sarah will give you nice perch, walleye, and crappies. Shetek will do the same. However, I'm thinking the bite on Sheteks north side is going better than Sarah's is right now.

I'm not stubborn, just ask my wife. grin.gif I'll go where the group decides. I vote for Shetek.

just pulled Shetek up on the lake master maps. The north end is big. Is there a boat landing up there? if so from the landing which way?

I don't know if I'd call it a landing, it's where everyone gets on the lake, tho.

Look at the absolute most north end, that's where we drive on. From there it's kinda nice cuz you can fish Teepeota point, the inlet, or no mans land and still get fish.

I can give you directions, but it's real hard to write them down, just ask CCFC. grin.gif Drop me an e-mail, I'll give you my phone # and I can give you a call.

Take the 2nd left after the 4th right, then head north for 1/2 mile.... when you get there, go south another 1/4 mile, whip a louey, go back 32 feet, turn left and then head east till you get to that one sign, yep that is it, the sign that says you are here! You know here, the place from where you started without knowing where it was. Yeah, that's right, just down the road from Whatyamajigger lane, and kiddie korner from Ummm Boulevard, and close to there.

Do you know where the Lutheran church is.....? Ok, yeah, it's nowhere near that.

hehehehehehe. He will get you there.

Main body of the north end. The long arm you are looking at is what we call "The Inlet."

If you try to call, I can't have my cell phone on at work. You can reach me at home, or on my cell anytime after 6-ish or so. Or you can go the old fashioned route and shoot me an e-mail.

I'll be there Friday after work and plan on spending all day Saturday out there. I doubt I'll have my shack out there, just my porty. This is all pending on the Mrs, however. If she comes I'll prolly be bringing the shack.

Friday is out the question and i'll be lucky to not be working Saturday the way things have been going around here. Another Saturday on Shetek could possibly be on my to do list but I haven't been to Iowa for 8 days and counting I am starting to have withdrawals I would hate to lose my touch.

BG - thanks for the directions and info! I love dealing with engineers, they're accurate and sooo detailed. grin.gif

My fishing buddy is an engineer, he's great at putting us on fish and meticulous doing it, - a virtue and a vise \:\/

I'll see ya when you get there. I'll also have a 2way radio, on channel 7. I'll be in the area you told me about, unless the fish aren't there \:\/ and then I'll be off looking for the fishies grin.gif

Anyone else - if you have a radio bring that - channel 7. Look for a wheeler with a Fish Trap Pro, and me in a tie died sweatshirt, can't miss me. I should be on the lake fri by 9:30 am

      Ice is going fast!  The sun is high and powerful, we're flirting with 70 degrees and the forecast looks promising. I'm feeling pretty confident there will be a lot more open water then most are expecting.  
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      There will certainly be some areas of open water to fish by the opener! Pike Bay ice is deteriorating fairly fast now. Other small shallow bays are probably not far behind. Cliff

      18 days to opener,  I hope there is some open water we can fish.  our group can't reschedule due to work issues.  Come on Sun/Rain!!!  Our golf courses are just opening up today!!  smh

      Almost time but maybe not quite... Although I did get the yak out of the backyard today, on to the trailer and up front to spend some time prepping it for time on the water soon.  Indeed it was fun getting out with you and the gang a few times this winter and looking forward to the next outings whenever they may be. WIll share what worked for me and look forward to reading some more info from others. Panfish is what I love going after and I had great fishing with gold jigs almost all winter. Did use a few other colors that worked also but that gold was hard to not use. Tear drop style tungsten in and 4 mm from Widowmaker Lures. Tried some from sportsmens direct also the last couple outings and liked them also. For plastics, the wishbone was good and also impulse mayflies and slug bugs. Tried and bought too many different things to try... LOL. Fished with shrimp for the first time ever this winter and that was a challenge and fun to try something different.  Started out with my good old ultralight gander mountain rods with the frabil titanium spring bobber and then bought a couple of the TUCR Inferno with the orange tip. I really like them for the 4mm and prefer the old ganders with a 3mm. Won a custom 32 inch power noodle from Kichler Custom Rods in Elk River at an event in Wisconsin and used it a few times yesterday. Very nice and looking forward to playing with it more. CGI inline reels still doing their job fine and I did grab one of the new Descent inlines and it worked sweet also. Nice that it now has a pop off spool instead of the gold screw off knob. 10 1/4 was my biggest gill and 14 for the crappie. Even went after catfish 3 times. Saw my first catfish tornado on the vex and iced a lot of fish after being taught how to use a bobber right for those super light biters. thx RickG   My highlight of the winter was getting a PB northern on a tip up up on Mille Lacs with stick in the mud. Fun City! My good old FL 18 is still working dandy and although I am tempted to upgrade, not sure if I will. Nills 6 inch saved my back from the hassles of the gas and when I put the Milwaukee on it life got even better. All in all a fantastic winter fishing with great guys and learning how to be a better fisherman.   Fish On! 
    • monstermoose78
      Well monstermoose78 is done ice fishing around here for the year. Why you ask I fell through yes there was 28-30 inches of ice on the lake, but the shoreline nope. Went fishing with @Cret Jigs and we had fun fishing. I cut lots of holes and we got some good ones for the knife. Cret jigs brought a plank for the way out but on the way in I did not make it to the plank. Cret jigs helped me get my stuff to the shore and out. I worry about the guy on the wheeler and they guy who used the plank to get out too. Thanks Cret jigs for a fun day.

      To all you guys who’ve been keeping us posted, thank you. I’m an islander so I don’t have much hope for the opener, but I’ve been reading all the posts (read them year around), including entertaining posts on new gear, and, again, thanks for letting a lot of guys know what’s going on there. The current weather, forecast and web cams, give me hope! I’m thinking I may get back home in three weeks, maybe four. Keep the sun shining, Dick
