Past weekend report

Recommended Posts

Well, those hogs have seemed to started to fill up on tullibees. Friday night we fished from 9pm until 5am and only caught 4 fish. The biggest being a 28incher and the smallest a 20incher. Saturday night wasnt much better. We did get a few but they were small.Surface water temp was 43 degrees.The wind had us trailering the boat by 10pm. It looks like the next full moon on November 30th might be your last chance for a trophy.

Even if the hogs are full, do you think there may still be a good bite this weekend late afternoon and early evening? From the forecast the water temp may even move back up a bit. I'd be fishing the garrison area.

If the weather is good its always worth a try. Its not over until the fat lady sings and cant put the boat in anymore. Even after ice-up those fish are still there biting. If your headed out during the day look for the deepest edges off Garrison reef. Hit the shoreline after dark.

D-man that's exactly how we did. We fished around Agate Bay on Sat. evening from 5-10 and only got three fish, one small and 2-21". I couldn't believe it was that slow.

Tried the north side on Sat. I was on shallow rocks casting for musky. Other boats looking for walleye's deeper in the day, marking them but no catches. I pulled up in shallower in about 8 ft and had a real nice musky fallow in about five casts. Any ideas about where they will be this weekend?

Bob, Dman, I have had good fishing on the west side, on rocks in 6 to 10 ft. pulling the largest sized floting rapala they make, silver with a red head and yellow back on 120 ft of 10 pound fireline. I actually had the best action ofter sunrise. A week before, when the moon was brighter, we did better at night. Me and a buddy got 15 eyes, the biggest being 29 inches. The best bait was the biggest tail dancer ( they need to make a bigger one) color didn't matter. 100 ft behind the boat, 10 lb fireline.

hope this helps! I am planning to be out there this Saturday smile.gif

Maniac, there have been a few big ones caught on the west side. Two I heard of were 48 and 53 inchers! I tried pulling a super-shad a while but no takers. pulled a jumbo sized floating rap, but only got a bunch of big walleyes (boohoo) wink.gif
I caught a couple of tulibees too, and I thought about rigging one up on a quick-strike rig, but wasn't sure it was legal, hahaha. I may try a big Jake bait this weekend, I think the muskys are looking for a big meal now. even some of the walleyes I caught had big tulibees sticking out of their gullets.

Best Fishes!

Cyber/ most of the big fish we caught had those tulibee tails sticking out as well. What size taildancer where you using? The biggest is a 9. If you were running that 100 feet out on 10 fireline that bait will go down 12 feet. They are making a 5 for next year(great spring bait).

I was using a 9 then, I was fishing 8 to 10 ft,bumping off lots of rocks, so I could have used less line, but I like to keep the lure away from the boat as much as possible on a calm night. did lose some lures to the rocks though.

I really had much better success on the jumbo floating rap though. I started using that last Saturday when I realized they were feeding on the bigger tulibees. I also wanted to use a lure that would tempt a big musky or pike too, but found it better for numbers of big eyes too, plus no snags! grin.gif

Sounds like everything is hitting on big muskie lures huh? I'm definatly headed up Sat , maybe Fri. and thinking I'll have to hit the shallow rocks hard. Has anyone been on east side? I tried Wed. but the fog was to thick and my GPS batteries were dead :-( but did notice green weeds in Isle bay.On the topic of walleyes hitting muskie lures, we had nice 'eyes hitting in 8 ft. over weeds in the middle of the summer fishing for muskies, one day we caught more walleyes in shallow weeds than anything else. This happen to any of you this summer?

I stopped by Thorne Bros today and picked up a cisco pattern Phantom jerkbait. I think both the Big Musky and walleye will not be able to resist it, though I don't think I will get much sport from a walleye on my jerkbait rod LOL!

70 degrees tomorrow! woohooo!

Best fishes!

First, As Cyberfishes partner I will say that he mostly does not lie. Except for maybe the part about how great the fishing is. See the last two times out he has out fished me something like 28 to 14 and he has always gotten the biggest fish. Not that I should complain. I have caught 3 or 4 that were my personal best comming into this year. My biggest now is 27" that was just shy of 8lb's. By the way that 9lber was a fish just shy of 27". It was the most grotesquely fat fish I have ever seen. It puked a half digested tulibe into the net. That belly was amazing it literally looked like it had something slightly smaller than a volleyball in it's belly. I am sure no picture we took will do it justice. We shold have taken a picure of it's underside. Just like a pregnant cow.

      I recently met up with my buddy Al to check out a small lake that I had never fished before (Al had only open water fished it). We didn't get to the lake until after sundown and we immediately started drilling holes looking for fish. It didn't take us too long to find an area that the fish were frequenting. We caught a couple fish and set up the flipover. We wound up getting into some nice Crappies and to our surprise some really nice Sunfish. I would really like to get back to this lake soon to explore some new areas and learn it a bit more as it definitely has quality fish!

      Thanks for the report.  I live close so I like to see how things are doing on Medicine.  Only time out was with the little one, so dad didn't get much fishing done.  Will be looking to drive out there now that we have this cold snap coming to make some more ice.

      I searched the forum for anything new regarding flotation suits and I didn't see anything since about 2015.  So.... If a guy were to buy a suit with flotation, which one and why?  Let's assume that the company and their lawyers all did their homework and they will save a life just the same.  I'm talking about comfort / mobility / sizing, etc.  I went to the Big C tonight to try some on and they were really picked over.  The only thing I found in my size was the Icearmor Rise jacket, but no bibs and they were not on any kind of sale.  Icearmor has a promo to get a free pair of boots if you buy a whole suit, which I plan to resell and cover some of my cost so that is of interest to me, but I can't mix and match between stores to get the best deal.   So - fire away.  What do you have and why do you like or dislike it?

      Normally I could give you a good report by this time but unfortunately, have not been out there yet. I plan to be in that area this weekend. If I do get that far I will check it out and report.

      I stopped by Tioga Pit yesterday and it was a mess.
    • BrianF
      Thx for the report. Things were pretty bad when we were there two weeks ago. Wondering what to expect for this weekend. Sounds like it’s a little better, but not much. 
    • Spearing Machine
      I have been sledding Pike Bay morning and night most every single day since Thanksgiving. Things have improved a little bit. There is still areas that are pretty bad though. Some of the slush has consumed all the snow and worked it's way to the top and that stuff is setting up nicely now. I think with a good week of this weather pattern that's settling in conditions will only improve. Maybe not perfect but better than 2 weeks ago. I've got -10.6°F right now on the thermometer so we aren't losing any snow or ice here on Big V!
