Fishing Tips

Iceman,
I'd make sure I had both fatheads and shiners. It's strange but sometimes all they'll take is shiners, othertimes it's fatheads, and then there's the times that it doesn't matter. You might want to pick up some crappie minnows and waxies for perch also.
I'd tie plain glow or red hooks on a couple, gem n eyes on a couple, and whatever they suggest at McQuoids. I've heard that the McQuoids are real good to work with so give them a call and see what they suggest.

Good Luck!

Just wondering if anyone out there could give a rookie angler and his buddies some fishing info for the southeast side of the lake. We are renting out a 10-holer from McQuiod's, and none of us have done much ice fishing if at all. I know they supply rattle reels, so that is what we will be fishing with. I've heard shiners are the ticket from a couple of people, fatheads from others. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks all.

Iceman,

We use Larger Rainbow Minnows on our Rattle Reel set-ups and catch more 'Eyes than on Shiners consistantly.

The Rainbow's are real tough and they swim longer when hooked than a Shiner, thus attracting more attention from roaming fish, especially during the over-night period when things slow down.

We've had great success with the Northland Bug-Eye Hooks that Glo. These are live bait style and they are much better at hooking Walleyes on a set line and the fish don't swallow them all the way down into their gullets making CPR easier and preserving the out-of-slot fish.

Good Luck!

Thanks fellas, I'll let you know how we do. I'm sure we'll catch our limit of bottle bass, not sure about what else.

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.

      Bass.   It’s what I find myself fishing for the most. I can fish for em anywhere and there are SO many different ways to target them.  Anything from finessing to big, bold bites and big hooksets.  Even if you’re not catching much you can at least entertain yourself with precise casting practice for certain presentations.
