Made it out for 4 hours yesterday and all I caught was this 25" walleye and a 22" northern. Didn't have a bite in 2 hours last night and didn't see the people fishing by me pull up a fish. Water temp was 37.4°F and there was a lot of green globs floating in the water. Maybe that was from the water turning over (heaviest at 39.16°F). I will blame that for the poor fishing rather than my lack of fishing skill (which I know I have).
Hoodoo point landing (2nd photo) had a little shore ice and McKinley Park (3rd photo) was totally clear as was Stuntz Bay. With low temperatures in the teens the next 3 mornings I would expect ice to start forming along some shores. Pulled my boat out of the water but could easily put it back in if the lake stays ice-free and I get my buck early.
Its hard to think but its coming soon at 15 I dont have 300 laying around to buy a vex with so last year I got a garmin striker 4 and made a mount for it even with the summer ducer it worked great!! I would put it up aginst my buddies vexs and marcums here are the pics
I’m leaving the boat home...forecast just sucks up there for the weekend! I’m going to find out the hard way if I indeed patched the leak in my waders 🥶 I’m just going hop from lake to lake, and hope the ice won’t be a problem.
Divers are pushing through. At least the ringers seem to be. I see several flocks of 6-12 birds hauling butt south when I’m out. Like ringers seem to do in this state, they are in high gear and showing no intention of stopping.
Had geese at the house yesterday but they’re all gone now. Couldn’t get within range of ‘em.
