Two of us went out of Hillman's 7.5 miles straight out Fri 5pm-Sat 10am. Caught 9 Eyes with my brother getting a beautiful 26.5 incher. No crappies. Approx half the fish came on a hook with a green Glow Tube with a sucker minnow, the rest were split between glow red Snake Jig and blue Glow Spoon.

Saturday morning we moved the house. At 6.2 miles a road goes to the right we went 2.3 miles down there. Then went into the big city(Waskish) for lunch and Bloody Marys. Went back out and fished in that spot from 2pm Sat-Sunday 9:30am. Caught a couple really nice perch and 5 Eyes. So it was a little slower there. Did talk to someone who was near there that caught one crappie and did see a big school of crappies on his aquaview but only one biter.

Overall a great trip! Went home with our limit of Eyes and a couple perch.

On our way off the ice Sunday morning we talked to Kelly who was out moving the road and putting out a bridge because of the big crack that went thru the road Saturday night. Thanks Kelly! Hope you didn't have to spend the rest of your day pulling out Foster!

Good Fishing to All!

We can't pick on Foster for a while. Rebuilding that 1/2 mile section of road was brutal. 5 plow trucks, 2 1/2 hours and stuck 25 to 30 times. We left behind banks over 6 feet high in places. Foster never got stuck?!?!?!?!?!?!?! \:oconfused.gifgrin.gif

It's "breaking the bank" around here too but the other way around. Too much time spent pushing snow and too many banks. \:\(

      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.
