Walleye,Crappie by day, Big Pike by night!

Recommended Posts

Traxxx

Fishing the last few days has been very good. With all the snow, we have been seeing quite the day bite. A couple days ago we had a good bite from 11am-2pm on Gull and they ended up with six eater walleyes and a dozen perch. Crappie minnows and rainbows were the ticket. These all came off the weedline in 15 fow. The crappie/sunfish bite has been very good during the day, with small jigging spoons producing alot of fast action. The last two nights have produced a couple monster pike, after dark. Last night was a 36" on a 1/8 ounce jiggin spoon around 6:30pm and tonight was a pig 40" that hit a big spearing sucker decoy on a tip-up inside the house,around the same time. grin

Eastman,

I typically use a 1/8oz Lindy Rattlin Flyer tipped with a shiner head or a buckshot spoon with a minnowhead. On the second line, I will use a plain or glow hook under a bobber,with a whole minnow. I usually fish next to the weedlines in the mornings or evenings. During the day I will move out deeper depending on the conditions. Look for hard bottom areas,humps,points,inside turns, weedbeds..ect. Hope this helps. Good Luck

Haven't seen much vehicle traffic yet. I've pulled a house out with my truck, not too far from shore though. I think a sled would be the best option right now. You should be able find a few over by the access there.

Nice pics. Probably had something similar on last night, the battle only lasted a minute though, line broke.

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      I stopped by Tioga Pit yesterday and it was a mess.

      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much.

      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!

      I heard water was coming out of cracks on another area lake last weekend.  It sounded kind of weird to me and suspicious.  10-18 inches was reported for thickness.  I didn’t think we had enough snow/slush to cause a weight problem already.   Water came up the holes that were drilled too.   The swing in thickness bugs me.  Plus I witnessed a wide variance in ND last weekend.  I did drive out and one spot I parked on had 20 inches on one side of the truck (bare ice) and the other about 14 (hard snow drift).  Kinda shocked me.  But there were trees under the ice too so that might’ve kept ice development slower too.   Keep being cautious out there!
