The Mesiah Strikes Again

Recommended Posts

BillW

I just returned from URL. A big thanks to Kelly, Jonny & Patsy. Great to see old friends again. We set up on Sunday in 1 of Kelly's Houses, very slow for Sunday. Kelly came early Monday AM, and said this won't due. In less than 1/2 hour, Kelly, Patsy and Jonny returned and tied on to the house and moved it about 1/2 mile out, drilled holes, banked the house and we were fishing again. This time much, much better. We ate fish, took home a limit of walleye and about a dozen perch. I told Jonny it was hard to catch fish small enough to keep.The walleye's returned to the lake are quality fish. Thanks Again.

The ironic thing is that where you fished the first night was about 50 feet from where I suggested Zmar fish when Zmar called me the Mesiah for putting him on fish. Nobody had fished there again until you did. Stupid fish swam away. grin It just shows that fishing reports are yesterdays news. It looked like tough fishing out there today from the people I talked to. shaky and Doc did real good on the bottom grubbing walleyes. Well,,,,Doc did real good. grin But no crappies for them yet tho. frown I fished 1/2 mile beyond them and only got 1 crappie and some little walleyes and Scott-Z was another 1/2 mile beyond me and only little walleyes.

I never told you Kelly, I went back to that area on Tuesday. I could see where someone had banked a house nearby, I'm assuming that was your doings now. We went a couple hundred yards west and south of there and set up my portable. It never was fast a furious, but steady. I caught a dozen fish, lost that many. Only two were below slot and one dink. I marked a lot of fish that didn't bite, but may have been small perch. You had to continually jig and stay on your electronics. It worked best that when you marked a fish to drop it to the bottom and twitch it there a couple seconds then slowly raise it above the fish, twitching all the while. If it rose up it would hit. There were fish there, one just had to tease'em a bit.

Yes we set the house that Bill was in there for one night. That is the big difference between fishing in a hard house versus a portable. I feel that one person in a portable or standing out in the open will catch way more fish then 4 people fishing in a hardhouse. There is a reason that the oldtimers would never fish in a hardhouse. They just used the hardhouse to warm up in once in a while. Right now we have a hardhouse sitting right where Jon had very good fishing in his portable a few nights ago. The hardhouse is producing almost nothing and we will be moving it back out of there tomorrow.

      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .

      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .

      Mine does not have an auto fan setting on the dial. I wish it did. 
    • papadarv
      Setting the fan to high or low the fan runs continuously. Set the fan to auto fan will start/stop with the compressor.
