Greg,
Just looking for some spots for eyes. I know one but it is hard to find and with a little help i could get to it a whole lot faster and wouldn't expose it to others fishing during the mid week or i could even punch some holes for you and you could maybe get a few for yourself and the wife.

Mary Ann'gler ~

I hear you guys nabbed another nice pike on your lake. How 'bout them eyes? Ever do well on your water through the ice? Brother Scott wants to give it a try Tuesday evening. Not sure where the spot with the best odds would be. Woodman's?

Happy New Year............GC

Graybuck: You better hide your milk jugs better this year! I'll try and remember to hogtie the thief! Do you need water? No need to haul that.

Graybuck ~ My Red Lake trip was poor for crappies (1) but good if you wanted to catch some walleyes and perch. Actually, two of us kept about two-dozen perch that were in the 9" range. I think they're getting a tad bigger on Red. Sure didn't look very big when I was cleaning them though! We went out of Hillman's and stopped about 1/2 mile short of everyone else, just to see what was there but it turned out to be a bad call. Usually the crowds are there for a reason.

Re: Swan Lake. I went out last night for a couple hours and couldn't catch a walleye. Fished the NE corner near Heyblom's just to try something different (again). All I caught was a small pike and a tullibee. Cloudy water and wet ice.

Greg C.


P.S. Thanks to the Walsh Gang for the nice photos. You sure do well out there.

P.S.S. Scouts are heading that way, eh? If I have some time, I'll stop by and say HELLO! Used to be a scout myself.

Thanks Mike ~ Like I wrote earlier, we're planning on giving it a shot for the eyes Tuesday night. Crappies are a possibility as well. Who knows? I might even head that way this afternoon and listen to the Vikings game at the same time!!

Thanks...........GC

Did you get up to Red the other day? I was on Swan the other night, not fishing, just talked to some guys fishing. The walleyes are being tight lipped, mostly perch being caught. Those walleyes gotta be there somewhere.

The Scouts will be next door this coming weekend for some fun on Buck.

We will be doing our planning for the outing tonite and I will let them know about the water. Any fish biting out front? I wonder if there is even enough snow to bank up for the slide.
Greg
Stop by and say hi, we watch movies, eat good, slide, and do some fishing. This is one of the highlights the boys look forward to each winter.

I'm coming up trout'n on the opener(17th), depending on the weather, will either make the hike or do as we did last year. Interested in joining me? I'll probably be all by my lonesome again. I also plan on hitting a couple other lakes in the area for my three day weekend.

Did you fish Jessie over the holidays?

Graybuck: I think this is another bust for the slide again....unless we get more SNOW!

Greg: Sonfish Mike and I got up WAY before the crack of dawn to go and fish Deer up by Togoland....total fish caught...1 perch that was about double the size of the crappie minnow we presented! Mike and I were impressed by ....the plowed highway of ours...from 52 north! We won't say a word about hwy 1...Deer was slush city! Not good at all for my Mukluks!
Duffman! As I was white knuckling my ride home in truck with son as driver...I was telling this kid...wanna try for a trout sometime? We are definitely in the area~He was game...I have no clue! Never caught one of them! Is Larson a good one for him to try?

Graybuck....
That throws a little wrinkle in my opener battle plans, but it should work out just fine for Everclear on Sunday. I'll see if the father-in-law wants to join us. I might try a closer lake for Saturday. I'll give ya a call before heading up.

Mary Ann'gler....
The last two state record Splake came out of Larson, I've never been there, but always wanted to try it. You guys should try some of the Range pit lakes that hold trout. I'll e-mail ya a couple other suggestions and tactics.

      Well, we netted a half dozen fish with the new net and I think I like it.  The biggest was a 45 and everything worked out real nice. Bringing the fish in was easy and then laying the net handle across the gun wale of the boat was enough to keep the fish and bag in the water and in pretty straight shape to work with.  Even with my 40 that needed the hooks cut off, the fish was completely in the water the whole time.  The only time any were out of the water was for a quick measure and photos.  No twisted gnarled mesh to deal with for the most part either. It proved to be worth the space!

      Beautiful day to be on the water, but such a struggle catching fish.  Marking a lot of fish and just as many bait balls or some other underwater clouds that the game fish were keying in on.  Ended up C&R a lot of really plump Sunnies ( thinking they haven't spawned yet?),  2 Northerns, several pieces of timber, 2 slot Walleyes, and a great sunburn. All within 12 hrs of fishing.

      I'll try to make it. Does 8 am work? Might go for other species too for fun.

      Another good a.m bite for me and my wife today , ( Thurs ) on Big bay . Nice fish again . Our limit of keeps , also put two back . 8:00 - noon. . . .  Hey Cliff , I’m gonna try to send you a p m .
    • Bigfatbert
      Was in Big Bay once again today and saw a few more Mayfly today than Tuesday . I agree things are just kinda getting going with the hatch , and also believe that these bugs will last until well after the 4th of July . With that being said , I also believe that fishing should hold up for awhile until the fish become so gorged out that things could come to a screeching halt later into this whole bug period .

      Mine does not have an auto fan setting on the dial. I wish it did. 
    • papadarv
      Setting the fan to high or low the fan runs continuously. Set the fan to auto fan will start/stop with the compressor.
