How did everyone do on the trout fishing this weekend? Did anyone land some of those big brudes that Alaskander was talking about? I am planning a trip up in 2 weeks and will be focusing on trout. I had decent sucess on Trout(near Wabana) last year. Last year was really my first effort for trout through the ice.
I just wanted to know how the bite in general was. No need to get specific on areas. But I would like to know what presentations have been working and the best time of day.
I was thinking of hitting the spot where they dumped those lunkers (a little birdie told me where they are).
I hope your guys did well last weekend and maybe I'll see up there on the lakes.

That spot you're talking about was super slow. Pray for a cloudy day before you go out there, I personally believe, from experience, that that makes a huge difference.

good fishin

Two of us caught 10 fish in the lake where the brood stock were released, biggest was about 4.5lbs, most were half that size. Did not see any of the big-uns get caught.

Tried trout(wabana) and was skunked, tried several spots from 20-70 feet using white tubes and airplanes with shiners. It was tough moving around with the windchills.

good luck

Likewise, my trout fishing on Crow Lake, Ontario, was slow as well. Four of us caught 14 fish in 1 1/2 days. Nothing big. Largest was around 6 pounds. Wind was terrible. Luckily we had about 1,000 islands to hide behind. Trucks are driving all over out there, with about 16 inches of good ice. However, we used sno-cats and played it safe. Took them to and from Crawfords Lodge each day. A fun trip never-the-less. Best baits were white tubes and Northland Buck-Shot Rattle Spoons Happy troutin'.....gc

Got one nice splake, saw another caught by the guy next to me. I had fish on the depth finder most all day but had a hard time getting them hooked. I'll use different tactics next time.

Me and 3 buddies tried Tioga Pit on Tuesday and only saw one small rainbow between the 4 of us. A buddy and I were up on Kremer yesterday and he caught one small rainbow and I caught one small splake. We caught both of them on our first two set ups and then nothing after that. I think this cold weather has the trout in cold front funk.

      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)

      Pretty quiet in here.  I've been fishing out of town the past 2 weeks.  Hope to fish the area lakes this week.  Heard reports of a good day crank bite on the chain but not much else.  With the full moon coming up this week may try some evening trolling.  Anyone else having any luck?

      Haven’t fished the river for weeks and came home to high, muddy water so I doubt I will for another week.  I’d focus on shorelines and whatever backwater I could find at this time if I did go.

      It was slow for me Tuesday afternoon and Thursday in Frazer / Smarts Bay. Wednesday was very good in 20-25 feet leeches / crawlers on a Lindy or a jig. Absolutely beautiful weather!

      My wife and I had a good morning on Friday with bottom bouncers, spinners and crawlers in 20-24 ft.  Caught 9, threw back 3 18-19 in, 2 13-14 in.

      I would head over the hill into the back country and fish the streams and lakes. You will have much better success catching fish. Bring bug spray

      Lori has some nice gills and some okay crappies normally. Green has nicer sized crappies and gills. Ann lake has been kicking out some great fish. Check out fishing club.

      Streams won’t have much of anything to offer this time of year. Maybe a couple tiny smolt rainbows. There are all kinds of shorefishing spots in the area though. Stream mouths are always the obvious spots to try. Spoons and spinners.

      How was the trip? I was on the lake Tuesday and the weather was as good as it gets!
