Fishing report :/2/21-23/08

My wife and 2 daughters took the wheel house up on Thursday late afternoon, and went out of Adrians. Got set up at 6:30 pm. I see that there was someone else up on the spot that they had plowed out for wheel houses. 6 miles from the island and then left. We were in 34 ft. of water. Nothing bit till 2:41 am on Friday. A huge 7.1 inch sauger. Was'nt worth getting out of bed for, I did'nt, my wife offered.

About as the sun was getting up, we started getting a few, and more steady through out the day. We caught a few less on Sat. and left around 3:30pm. on Sat. All total we kept 29 sauger,s and one walleye about 18". I did take a picture of a huge bunch of river shinners that were swimming just under the ice. I put the under water camera just under the ice and there was thousands moving in the same direction. That happened a few different times on Fri. and Sat. Hope the picture turned out.

Shadyzr, I too was on that 6 mile mark, about the second house in (red truck with grey fishouse). Did you stay there, the same spot, the whole weekend? I spoke to the guys at the first house, closest to the road and they did ok. We didnt, so we moved. Then on Saturday those same guys ran into me again and said that the bite had stopped for them. I saw that the too moved in shallower.

Yes, I think we were the next house farther down. Green wheel house, maroon truck. I had the 4-wheeler out running around on fri. & Sat. Did you see the minnows down the holes swimming around. Could be why the fish slowed down.

How far out does Adrians Road Go?? I usually fish out of Zipple, but have trouble finding anything deeper that 31 ft. Thanks.

We were up there a month ago & were out 7-8 miles. We actually hit the end & came back a little. We were looking for 34', but wound up fishing in 36'. I think we were out a little too far. We didn't do all that well.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.
