Sunday's Launch

Recommended Posts

I wasn't able to make it up to Pikes' Point Resort in time for Sunday nights launch, I had a little truck trouble. Just wondering how everyone did. I really hated to miss this, I think people should get together like this more often. Thanks D-Man for the opportunity!!

We pounded the fish. Its was a great time. We had times when 4-5 people had fish on at once. We were still netting fish when we pulled anchor to head in. Perfect nite, no wind and the few bugs we had pretty much stuck to the lights. We will plan another one in Sept. Hope you can make it then. P.S FM.com member Fishfearme won the first fish money pot.

Hey D-man,
Thanks for the report. I don't suppose you could let me know where you guys were? I'm not looking for acuall GPS coordinates, but a general location and depth would be really appreciated. Thanks again!!

Good Luck,
Rusty

D-man,

Why is it that spots like this hold so much fish, ecspecially at night. I always thought at night go shallow and find rocks? As you may recall a previous post I mentioned that we had 65 fish on a launch at night. We also were in a"no-mans" on the NW end? I took the gps cooridnates and placed on my map and was dumbfounded that we were a long way from any structure. I don't mind fishing in these areas it just seems to go against all logic? Am I way off base?

Bug and Clam beds inhabit in those areas attracting all kinds of forage. No mans lands spots have been fished for many years. They can be some of the hottest action on the lake and turn ice cold the next.

We made it up for the launch, and had a lot of fun. Great group of people.

Mike and D-man gave us some good info. We put it to use yesterday and today, and caught quite a few. The biggest being a 26 1/4.


D-man we dropped the boat and headed into the y club, but we must of scared em when we pulled up cause they were closed.

For the record I can't recall any bottle bass being slammed. wink.gif

We were out sunday and fished spirit island and did okay, nice fish but no slots.

We also marked a ton of fish in a "no mans land" between spirit island and rocky reef in 30-33ft. We could not get them to bite however. What did you guys catch them on at the launch?

      Could not agree more...; but with Garmin Pan it's a bit cumbersome...

      Yesterday and today the combines got back to work. Hunted a management area next to a fresh picked corn field. Got a couple nice roosters which both flushed at about 15-20 yards. Saw several others that flushed way out in front of me. Not many other hunters out there yet.  Drove past several fields that were just combined today and there were a few places that had some really deep ruts from either combines or the tractors pulling wagons. Didn't see any of the big combines unloading directly into semi's so the ground must still be pretty soft if their not driving the trucks into the fields. About half the combines were in corn and the others getting after beans.  Weather this weekend should a little breezy and cool for Saturday with a high in the low 40's. There's a 30% chance of precipitation for Saturday. Should warm up a bit on Sunday.

      I've run an fl12 for six years now, occasionally it gets noisy but has been doing the job. Last year on lotw we had 4 vexilars going in a small area and even with the different interference settings I got feedback. One guy had a hummingbird 55 ice and had zero issues even when his was shut off still had issues. Maybe when I'm done with school I'll upgrade to something with a GPS and lake map

      Have to say it. I don't believe there is "A BEST" unit out there. Just about all of them will suit someone's needs depending on how you use them and what you expect from them. If funds are not a limitation I would recommend looking at the Garmin Ice units with Panoptix or now you can adapt Livescope to the ice. Lots of Panoptix videos out there, but Livescope is new to the ice and the open water videos are amazing. Love mine. Sold all my flashers, my LX 6 and Helix units. My opinion for what it's worth.

      Yep I've been seeing it almost daily since Friday on the south end of the bay. Getting me excited! Time to winterize the lund. It was a good run again this year!

      Omg. @Parmer I totally forgot about the Zoom, tells ya' how far my mind is from ice season yet. I do use it, but not whole lot, usally for perch fishing. Most of my Walleye are caught shallow.  
    • Parmer
      All I use is an fl8. I have had it like 16 years.  I guess I don't really believe in the zoom and all that stuff.  Think the fl8 reads fish pretty good.  And I hardly get any interference like my buddies, with there fancy Marcum's lol.

      First fish today was a big fat grey 30 incher, so as a guide the pressure was off right away. Steady action spot locked jigging in 30 feet of water with frozen shiners. By noon we needed 1 Sauger and one Walleye. At 3pm we got a nice Walleye so we quit at 3:30 one Sauger short. It was still pretty windy this morning but from the SW so fishing wasnt too tough. Had to toss the anchor at 2:30 the 3 batteries in the Terrova were spent, thats how windy it was this morning. Here are the pics

      NW is not good at Long Point(I dont know where it is good on this end of the lake.)  SW, WSW and S can blow pretty good without much damage.   Keep your fingers crossed and good luck

      Hey thanks for the help anyfish2! Would you have a wild guess on how many acres the lake is?
