Walleye,
We are going again on sat. Going to try the magic bait to see if it was a fluke or if it really is the bait. Stopped by the ramp on sun. just to find it. looks good, let us know if you will be out

Riverdancer,

Good to hear about your fishing successes!
One way to test a bait is to naturally do a side by side test, sometimes it's the angler who's getting the fish where anything you drop will work, and as you know sometimes it's the bait.

Keep catchin'

Good day fellow FMers, had a great weekend on the river last weekend. Started out Saturday afternoon in Prescott where I was lucky enough to run into riverdancer and husband. Those two were putting a serious dent in the sauger population when they told me they were using super-doo's. They were kind enough to let me give one a shot and I proceeded to limit out on sauger in about 30 minutes and culled a couple smaller ones over the next hour. I usually don't keep fish but the parents want some. We fished the channel in 27'-29' of water. On Sunday my partner and I were greeted by a stiff southerly wind. This made boat positioning a challenge and the fish didn't cooperate like they did on Saturday. My partner and I only ended up boating 5 before leaving to watch the remainder of the viqueens (should have stayed fishing). All in all it was a great weekend, made some new friends, found a new fishing partner (many thanks for not showing me up on my boat), and wasn't tortured for almost 4 hours by the vikings (I only endured 1 quarter).

Basspatrol, They are called super doos made by Bfishin tackle. We were jigging with minnows all morning and catching some fish and then ran out of monnows and tried the super doo and started catching bigger fish. The average was 20-22 in saugs with some bigger walleyes as well. The difference for me was with the plastics they were nailing the bait instead of light biting the minnows.
Give them a try

Guys,

You can order Super-Dos from one of our site sponsors, Catch-N tackle.

I've used them for bass for years. They are an awesome all-around plastic.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..
