Sick of this $#!+


Recommended Posts

Well, hope the title made you look😁. Getting real sick of the frozen tundra feel that has engulfed our neck of the woods the last week.  This kinda weather ain't much fun to be outside for more than a few min at a time... Starting to go a little crazy sitting around instead of being on the ice😒 Anybody making it out?

Must not be crappies. They won’t come up to hit my jig. 

About 15 yrs ago did a two weeks in Baudet, major cold snap came through while I was there, temps dipped to -30s at night and daytime highs were in the -10s... we were young and full of stupid, that's

My fingers can't handle the cold anymore.  Although I will admit I went outside during this polar vortex to cold cast some full rod set ups.  I bought the new Shimano Zodias rod a 7'2" ML with the new carbon monocoque handle and it totally blew me away at how light the casting motion was form initial load to end of cast motion.  There was almost no need to recoil the rod at the end of the motion it all wow!...This rod made my St. Croix Legend rods feels somewhat heavy.  The prior year Zodias model with split grip EVA foam handle didn't handle like that .  That was a $200 rod and it felt just like that.  This year's Zodias model with it's updated cosmetics and handle style is feeling way awesome.  And then my fingers would go stinging from the cold and I would run back inside.

@slipperybob. I was playing around with one of the Zodias models last summer, I did not like the way the reel seat fit in my hand, felt uncomfortable. I also thought it was a heavy rod, considering it's $200 price tag. Ended up with another st croix that trip.   Will have to check them out this spring if they changed the design.

Yep, my daily round trip to the mailbox 100 ft. from my front door is about the max I can handle. Defentely not looking forward to the 2 hour trip to Rochester Mayo today.

There's no way we were going to go the whole winter without an arctic plunge.  November, December, and January were all much milder than they usually are.

Nope. Went to red once about 30 years ago with a buddy. Portable and a four wheeler.  By the time we got there it was about 30 below. We went out and fished about two hours and the inside of house was white. Lol. What we doing here we said and went home. Wife said you guys are nuts when we got back. I said, honey, you are correct. Lol

Two days before the plunge last week fishing picked up.  When it plummeted I drove out to the house instead of taking the wheeler so it did not seem so bad even at -10 but fishing shut down.  Have not been out since Saturday and it will be another week before I venture out again as the temps flirt below -20.  Its project time.

      We're having daily heat adversey,  20+ days of 90 deg. Hang in there. NOAA and Federal forecast just announced the Midwest has a 95% chance of a January through March La Nina which means a cold winter and above average snow fall. Early ice may be a challange with forecasted colder and wetter October through December.

      The mouth of the creek is quite a ways downstream from the landing, and you’ll have to cross several peoples’ docks. Entire stream is surrounded by private property. Sure, you can technically legally access the stream, but why would you want to bother with the headache of dealing with landowners that DON’T want you there? Stream is small enough to step across in most places, it’s very weedy, and lot’s of overhanging brush. Not to mention, below average at best numbers of small trout!   You want easy access? Buy a Wisconsin license! Right across the river in Pierce County alone, there’s hundreds of miles of public easements on trout streams that are ten times better than anything Minnesota has to offer!

      Pike suckers are about 3½ inches long.  Walleyes really like them in the fall and early winter.  Caught my fish in 13-15 FOW drifting slowly.  Good solid bites.

      Got up Thursday evening to rain and pretty heavy wind Friday morning had us holding off on putting the boat in the water. Fished briefly Friday evening at sunset and picked up an 18" and a couple smalls. Fishing was decent Saturday morning but no real size, everything was 12-15". I had one that looked to be 17"ish flop off as I was trying to flip it into the boat. All the fish we caught were in 17-22'. We were fishing around about a 6' top but never caught anything on top. They appeared to be relating to the structure but not actually on it. Tried again Saturday evening for a couple hours and continued to pick up small walleye just like the morning. Sunday was windy again but we decided to slug it out for awhile and caught one decent perch and one small walleye. We fished similar depths and spots as Saturday but they weren't there. Marked them out in 35'+ but didn't feel like fighting the wind out in the big water so we called it quits around noon and never went back out(the wind never really did lay down or we may have tried again). Jig/minnow way outfished bottom bouncers/crawlers. Wish bottom bouncers would have worked better because it was tough to keep a jig down as fast as we were drifting and we never found a school to spot lock on.

      I am heading up there tomorrow.  Where do you guys get minnows up in the area?  Tower or Cook or down in Virginia?  I have never heard of pike suckers?  How large are they?  Are you guys fishing the East or West side of the lake?  Let me know.  I am thinking of fishing the East side tomorrow and then headed to the west side from Thursday thru Sunday.  Any help would be appreciated?  I am a newby to the area.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!
