tough fishing

Hello Guts, it was nice meeting you a few weeks ago ! Too bad weather was so bad. We enjoyed the time off anyway and getting the boat airborne a few times added to the fun!
we fished Kab/Nam 10/5 as hard as I ever have with little luck. We fished Blind Ash bay, Mouth of Ash river, Entrance to Lost Lake, Rudder Bay,the reef south side of Nam Island. We tried jig/minnow,lindy rig/minnow,lindy rig crawler,trolling with shad raps. We fished deep,shallow,mid depths and caught 1 30" northern. I'm not sure what is going on, maybe they are still well fed on the perch minnows ??? We graphed lots of fish but no luck.

Thanks for the info, and nice to meet you as well. Believe it or not, fishing has picked up some since you were last here. The more consistent bite has been in the deeper water, 30'+. Some anglers did tell me of some good fishing in shallow bays, tossing out jigs with minnows and using a slow retrieve back to the boat for saugers and eyes.

The more common deep holes being fished now with some success are the Ash River mouth, Blind Ash mouth and around the blundt island/Nebraska area.

I'm not hearin much from the Namakan folk right now so I don't know whats up there.

See ya on the next trip, guts, <(((((><

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
