A little nasty out there today and tonight

Recommended Posts

Matt and Jen were happy where minnesota was so I did not have to move it today which was a good thing as The windchill must of been close to 30 below if not more. Leroy and Clint rolled in for one night in florida around noon. With customers in florida and minnesota I made sure both houses had brand new 100 lb propanes as the temps are predicted to be 25 below tonight.

Tomorrow I will be battling mother nature as I move florida and minnesota. The snow has created all kinds of drifts and at times today the visabilty was less then a 1/4 /mile. After dark was a whole different story and I hope no one is driving around out there tonight. The roads will be needing some cleanup after this blows threw. Then when fishermen drive through the drifts in the roads they become bigger with more snow. It make quite the mess. All the houses will have drifts to deal with also. Kelly was welding up the drag this morning on the lake when it was 10 below.

Some of the unseen work that goes into maintaining a road

      Yesterday was the first time I have noticed all of the dead smaller minnows floating around in the Frazer / Smarts Bay area. Friend of mine who knows the lake as well as anyone indicated it may be perch minnows choking on spiny water fleas. If so, that's a bit disconcerting.....Can anyone confirm? Slow for me mid to late afternoon yesterday in the area fishing for walleyes..

      I'm not going to say it.

      Del, No I did not troll the spinners and Raps at the same time. I kept switching rigs just to see what would work. I used a 1-1/2 oz. bell sinker on the 3-way rigs and a 2 oz. bottom bouncer with the spinners. Cliff

      Got 8 nice keeps today in 26 to 36 feet of water in Big Bay from 8:30- almost noon , plus one throw back dink . Six keeps on jig n tiny shiner , and two keeps on jig and small leeches. 1/8 oz jigs . The small shiners were trapped by us .. I pretty much fish a jig all summer long . Although I do realize other methods do have there times out there, I just like jigs , and usually always manage fish on them with either a leech , crawler piece , or a minnow ..

      Mother Nature sure has had it in for you the past week, she's making you hone your fish catching skills for sure. Good luck the remainder of your stay Jeff.

      You didn't troll them at the same time, right?   How much weight were you using?

      The rusties hadn't gotten to wakemup or Norwegian bays yet, but they are through oak narrows and on the march, from what the DNR said last summer.   I've got my trap waiting. I haven't seen anyone have much success fishing walleye on merry go round for years (and that includes me).   It is like the reef bite pretty much vanished some years back.    But who knows, it could come back if we get a couple good year classes of smaller fish.    The area around the little island (two little islands) where the osprey nest was, to the east of goodwill island, used to be good also but hasn't done much last few years.   Maybe this is the year...

      It may or may not. Everything i have read is the initial surge from starting it up is close to 2600 watts. And after that it runs at 1600.

      I never have.  Waded in when the kids were swimming.  Nice sunfish and I hear a good bass lake.  A person could portage a boat in there if it weren't too heavy.  I've never stayed there but can see people down at the beach when I fish there.
