the way i see it is, the funnest part of fishing is pulling whatever your after up in the ice. the second funnest part of fishing is finding out where they are and what makes them bite. my first trip of the season was a blast. just out of superstition i went to the same location as i started out last season. the bite was not phenominal, however given the 30 + mph winds and blinding snow visibility at 20' at times, we did pretty good. we caught 11 crappies all over 12 inches. a small pike, a 7 pound pike, and one of the boys caught one about a hundred pounds. it was catch and release, so you'll just have to take my word on it. it was really 36 inches smile.gif the evening bite was there around 4:30 til about 7:00. after supper, i went back out to try my hand with the vex. from 9:30 til 11:00 i pulled up 6. one measuring 14 1/2". i had had enough by then and called it a night. we got one more in the a.m., and the 36 incher.
while i was watching the vex, i would see the fish come up and sniff the bait, then float back down. frustrating. the fish were there, just not real aggressive. i took off old faithful, and tried a plain gold hook, with a small crappie minnow, and i got two more right off the bat.??? who know's, it worked. i've had outings like this before, but when it's tuff, i just keep bouncing around maybe picking up a couple here and there, or til i land on a school of aggressive fish. that was not a possibillity yesterday, so we took what we could get. 11 crappies is a nice meal.
they are there, go get em. they will turn on. be there when they do.good luck.

      About the Rusties... I thought I posted this but it must have gone away with the server glitch.  Rusties have made it through oak narrows and are marching west. To the best of my knowledge they haven't gotten as far as Wakemup so Norwegian and HeadOlakes are still free of them.  When they get to us, I have my crab boil, trap, and old bay ready.  I figured trapping them east and importing them west might get me in trouble.   I can wait.

      Me too, going up for the week of July 4th for cabin projects and fishing and maybe some trail riding on the SxS. Oh, maybe some R&R and Coors Light too.

      I also have a ICIH, with a loud ac unit, would like to see a thermostat for it but most of time time I have house plugged into 120 volt outlet.

      Wow - 7 days of posts gone.  Seems like more than that.  Oh-well.  My next trip is a week and a half away.

      Per Rick on HSO they switched to a new server. Had a glitch in the database that lost a couple days of posts on HSO and FM

      Good luck fishing. It's a great way to spend retirement!

      Does anyone know where the more recent posts have gone? There were some posts from earlier in the week. BTW, not seeing any more floating dead minnows.....

      I had my last official guide trip Monday and Tuesday and we fished for Smallmouth bass. It was one of my regulars that I have fished with for over 10 years. George and I have caught 100's of Smallies over the years and this year was no different. We boated around 65 bass in two days in less than perfect conditions. Most were on topwater baits of one kind or another and the rest were taken on crank baits. I wasn't able to fish to much so George caught most of the fish. I know I will miss guiding and the friends I have made over the years. I guess I'll just have to fish more to get over all the time spent guiding.   Have a great season everybody.
