hello. last sunday night my hubby and I were drifting on the west side of the causeway, when all of a sudden my pole just about bent in half! I was fishing with 12 lb test, and has a green jig tipped with a leach. What ever fish it was, took off under the boat, and literally stripped all the line off of my reel (and I had it full~125 yards or better). When it hit the end of my line, it turned around and started swimming in the opposite direction. I couldnt keep up and ended up letting the fish have too much slack, and lost it. I was thinking that this fish had been a lake trout. Bottom was about 24 foot, and the fish went fast and straight. What are you thinking?? Could it have been a lake trout??

(plus, we re lined our heavier duty poles with 20lb and 30 lb test stren, we lost two 8 lb and maybe a 10 lb northern earlier in the evening)

retired fishing lady!

I'd say more likely a big northern. I think the lakers are going to be a little deeper and over in the Sherry Arm area, but you never know. Maybe the Pokegama Lake Monster.

That lake is scary... I would bet one of the huge Poke Pike or that Poke monster!!!

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
