Recommended Posts

am coming up with some buddies on Sat and renting a house from Brandt's. How has the bite been on the south side of the lake - Center Bar, 4 mile or 5 mile? no idea of where our house will be. Thanks for any replies.

He probably has you on Sloppy Joes reef, that's where he puts most of his rentals, maybe out on 4 mile.

We have our house on Sloppy Joes and it's been slow. I'll be up tommorow and I plan on spending the day on foot out near 4 and 5 mile. If I don't find anything I might pack up and head to the mud flats for the day.

I am taking my guy fishing on Tuesday out of KJ's and we have never been there before. Heard he has nice houses and roads. We are really hoping to find some fish and I would appreciate any advice/comments. We have been going out of Lyback's for a long time and the service and houses are excellent - just no fish. I know it is spotty everywhere. It is my fella's birthday and I am hoping for some fish out of KJ's. We will be out 7am to 7pm shift. I believe it will be Anderson Reef and Spirit Island area??? Have never fished this area before.

I was up last weekend, we fished Sloppy Joes, 4 mile gravel and 5 mile gravel. Same story everywhere, small perch is all we saw and it was tough to get them to bite.

Ditto on Izatys reef. Lots and lots of small perch on the camara. Very few takers.

I was fishing around Spirt Island Fri-sat morn. 2 guys about 8 perch only 1 BIG jumbo the rest were small. Fished rocks, mud, shallow, and deep. Hopefully they eventually turn on it has been a slow year. Good luck and let us know how ya do.

Brandt's had us on Center Bar 28 FOW. we had an Aqua View Camera and saw alot of small perch, a cell phone, a flash light and some type of bottle on the bottom. Jerry Brandt also told us some person lost their $800 glasses down the hole. We thought we could see the part of the rims that go behind the ears sticking up. out of 5 guys in our group, I was the only one that caught any fish - 10 perch about 3" long. I have the Easy Byte attachment on the end of my rod tip and it does work great. You can see the easy byte tip move when the fish is nibbling on the lure. I used a Bro Bug on Sat and a Lindy Rattl'n Flyer spoon both with Eurolarvae. did not see any "Eyes".

Went up tuesday nite till today. out between spirit and sloppy joes 29fow. There were 3 of us and we only caught 2 small perch a piece. Saw a whole lot of 4-9 inch perch and quite a few walleyes on the cameras, but could only get a few to commit.

We have access out of Isle Bay - turn right or left at the Supervalu.

Our houses have been catching jumbos...Mike came home with 40 between the two of them yesterday...we gave them away. He's out this AM and had 24 as of a couple hours ago.

Big schools move through and there has been a lot of action. Their bellies are pretty full of mayfly larvae so that is what you want to use.

      I might be able to make a run or two if needed with my truck.  Hopefully we don't get dumped on and get a few warm sunny days to get this stuff to settle a bit.

      I agree. Was thinking about doing this. My issue is that it's customer service. What if it wasn't that easy of a fix and customer service was this way. Haven't had these issues with shimano or pflueger for half the price.

      Some pockets of slush on the east end. Only came upon one spot that covered a large area, most were small spots.  Walking on the lake was not to bad, snow is light and fluffy.  I didn’t see anything that would stop me, but not sure how far of a trek you have.

      How is the snowpack and slush looking these days? I'm looking to walk into my place on the west end one of these weekends but don't want to make the trek in knee-deep powder or thigh-deep slush!

      That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.

      As soon as humanely possible. We have a seasonal cabin that we use year-round, an no road access. Therefore like PSU, we are bound by the ice-out to determine our first open water trip. If I had road access, it would likely be determined by other factors such as snow on the driveway, etc.   If you have plumbing pipes, that is another concern. We haul in our water so I don't have to worry about pipes bursting. About six years ago, I did hook up my lake pump at opener at left it filled with water. When I came back for Memorial Day, the iron housing had cracked due to water freezing.   My general advice is to not avoid the in-between times. They are often the best. Less people are around, you get to see the land and the lake change, when the ice goes out you get to see eagles and other scavengers pick up all the floating winter-kill fish, green starts popping up everywhere, etc. It's a fun time to be in the woods and around the lake. Canoeing through ice or boating through black ice is always a hoot as well!
