What is the consensus up there on what the front will do to the fishing? I know the weekend is going to warm up. We are coming up and staying with Kelly P tomorrow.

Well it can't get much tougher then it is right now and I stumbled onto something that just might work. Kelly and I moved around a bit after my recent scouting. We have a plan. wink

Forcast looks ok for the weekend. 15 on Sat. and 25 for Sun. I plan on being up both days. Typical January bite so far. We just have to tough it out it will get better.

Jonny P-spill the beans! What is this plan?

The plan as good as it is working will remain a family secret. If I let out the old school secrets every “outfitter” that comes to town would know and what fun would that be? wink

Lets just say a few anglers are catching fish at an increased rate even though Kelly and I got some strange looks.

By next Thursday we will most likely have an entire new plan and most likely moved the fleet a few times by then.

The first thing I told KidWalleye was, "You are going to be an experiment". grin Early results last night looked fairly good but we'll see how things pan out and let him report. He does look really stupid sitting there over 1 mile from anyone else.

Blackjack, if this works plan on leaving shore with a full tank of gas and you might have to change time zones. grin

shaky, just be happy that you missed the fishing this last week. It was ugly out there both with the weather and the fishing. frown

How did Doc's kid getting married clear up your cobwebs? grin

Well KidWalleye got some walleyes but nothing like I hoped for. Maybe I should have used a Hamster for the experiment. grin I think we are back to portable versus hardhouse fish biting quandry. Last night when scouting Jon was getting into them pretty good in his portable so I slid a hardhouse in about 120 feet away and drilled out 2 holes to try it. I fished twice as long as Jon and caught I walleye compared to his 20 or so. But I was 100% on keeper fish while he only caught 4 that he could keep. crazy

I have to admit Johnny I was a bit suprised to see the fleet moving where it moved on Sat. I would like to offer some thanks though because I had to meander over and see what was over there. Lets just say it all made sense after that! wink Fishing was tough until we set the portable up and had 18 fish in less than 4 hours... Several too big with the largest a fat 23.5".

My wife outfished me 4:1 and it was great....made her very happy! Normally we have our little girls along and can't venture out in a portable but this weekend was the exception. It sure made for a great afternoon! The fish are biting somewhere...just have to find the right spot...problem is there is a lot of lake to search! Great job Johnny!

I NEVER venture out onto the Red without a full tank of gas!!! We'll have a portable along also in case you have a 'hot spot' that you want us to sit on!! smile

Getting psyched, piles are growing, see you Friday!!

On this side of the lake that was the biggest area with no fishermen. No vehicle traffic, no augers drilling holes, no generators running. A nice quite area for the fish to go to when they get spooked by all the noise. With no snow cover to dampen things sounds were traveling a long ways and every sound pushed the fish a little further away from the people.

Blackjack, we have a rough idea of where you're going to be. You guys are very self sufficient and with decent weather coming we can put you "way over there" by yourselves.

      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.
    • Gone Out Fishin
      On Island lake, I typically had luck fishing smallies near Rice Lake Road. Then the chain of islands east of the bridge has a good reef studded with boulders, moderate side rocks, and timber. Depending on the wind those islands can be good for bass or walleye. Use to use creature baits and crawdads to fish thoroughly.   Gone Out Fishin

      It’s not totally remote but I found an app for my phone called “all stays” and it has filter settings and you can find small camp sites where your not surrounded by 30’ rigs. So you don’t feel like your camping on a sidewalk in Chicago.  I found the county park ones are nice without driving 4+ hours away.

      Thanks Borch - Star Island looks really interesting and Cass is a lake I've always meant to get to, but never have. Have you ever fished Windigo?  I'm assuming the only way to do it would be to fish from shore or carry in a canoe or kayak.  Sure would be interesting to fish on a lake within a lake.
