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,

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?

      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.

      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.

      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!

      I heard water was coming out of cracks on another area lake last weekend.  It sounded kind of weird to me and suspicious.  10-18 inches was reported for thickness.  I didn’t think we had enough snow/slush to cause a weight problem already.   Water came up the holes that were drilled too.   The swing in thickness bugs me.  Plus I witnessed a wide variance in ND last weekend.  I did drive out and one spot I parked on had 20 inches on one side of the truck (bare ice) and the other about 14 (hard snow drift).  Kinda shocked me.  But there were trees under the ice too so that might’ve kept ice development slower too.   Keep being cautious out there!
