Going out of Stocky's this weekend

Recommended Posts

wormfood

Heading up to the big pond and I am going to be staying in a rental at Stocky's with a couple other friends.

I am just looking for info on what's accessable from Stocky's and is close by that I could try during the day for perch. I don't want to be driving all over the ice.

Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks.

SW side of the lake just as you pass through Onamia. Another thing I forgot to ask and haven't seen in the forum is how much ice there is. I've got a power auger but I'm wondering if I'll need an extension...

Thanks for the tip Derek.

I fish out of Stocky's but haven't been up there as of late. If you go out of Stocky's Harbor follow the road to the group of houses out and to the right about 1/2 mile. Go left off of there and you'll find a reef tht comes up to 18-19 feet and drops off into the main lake. We have done well there for slots. Sorry I don't have better directions, but look for guys in portables as they are usually on the fish.

We ended up catching a couple eyes and a put friday night (no fish in the slot).

We managed to convince a couple nice perch to bite sat & sun with absolutely nothing over night! We saw a ton of perch on the camera but they just were not biting. 20+ mph winds and deadly cold probably didn't help much.

We tried to check out the recommended areas with the portable (not sure if we were in right spots) but we were marking fish but no bites. Probably drilled about 50 holes in varying depths with no luck except a bad case of chilly feet!

Overall it was a fun weekend as the rental shack was da bomb! Now all I have to do is stop by Dewey's and pick up my pillow that I forgot in the shack. My wife just hates the fact that the pillow cases goes with the sheets we have and how could I forget it up there! Ha! Thanks again for the tips, maybe next time...

Sounds like you were in the average catch rates of what's been going on up there this year. Dewey's a great guy, you'll get that pillow back for sure. Sounds like a bad weekend for searching out of the cozy cabin.

      On Saturday I drove into Wisconsin to meet up with my buddy Matt and his Dad to target some Crappies. The weather was perfect and allowed us to stay mobile & hole hop around all day to catch fish. We found a good average size (10-12") and some larger fish mixed in. I started the day fishing a 4mm tungsten jig with big plastics but the fish seemed to shy away so I downsized to the smaller profile (3.8mm) tungsten fly and almost every fish I marked turned into a biter. I always have a Wisconsin fishing license so I'm hoping to check out a few new lakes this winter across the border.

      I fish the WE 75% and only travel to the east end for a change.  We do great all summer, but most of my my summer stops do not produce any walleye and the unusual stops produce a few sporadically.  WHERE DO THE FISH GO??????😑

      New info on Linwood Lake access..... The access is all melted now almost all the way across. With this warm weather it just ruined it. Was there last night and you can only go on the left side. Just a small spot to pass. I could drive my wheeler across ok. Super disappointing. There is the 2 boards still there people can use to cross.

      You don't have to build the axles and tires outside the house. You can sink them into the frame a bit and have them come up and down inside a built in enclosure that will end up being like shelves on the inside. You just lose a little room on the inside in those two areas. Kind of like this. Instead of that.
