1/8 report. 5 mile

Recommended Posts

The Yeti

We were out on 5 mile today. We caught 6 walleyes. Missed a few, had one really big fish on, could have been a pout or walleye, and had one broken line. We were in 30 foot of water with 25 foot about 30 yards away. Pretty decent outing.

Usually, when we leave the lake about an hour after dark, we'll see a few vehicles leaving also. But tonight, it was like a mass exodus, almost bumper to bumper. That tells me that the fishing completely shutdown in alot of areas. It was weird.

Was out that way also and did alright but my biggest thrill was the look on my 4.5YO daughters face when she got her first walleye, she was so proud when she got to wear the honorary gold depth checker, my buddy and I made a big deal out of it, so after playing outside awhile she came back in and caught 2 more, then said "no daddy your not jiggling it right" how cool is that? grin.gif

Tom: You might want to listen to hear regarding that jiggin' technique, sounds like she's onto something. cool.gif good to hear she had a good time. Now you have a fishing partner for life. Good luck and hang on. Bill

      I had an absolutely beautiful day on the water. The crappies I caught were over 12" . I personally have to say pink and white, and white on pink is the way to go for spring crappies. Enjoy. https://youtu.be/o19q4K1urBE

      Where the heck was this advice a month ago when I was booking our trip!  I knew nothing about Kabotegama and really only had a few choices of campsites available for the dates we wanted to go. Wood Duck Island looked as good as any. After I made the reservation I had read that the west end of the lake had better fishing earlier in the year since it was shallower than the east and the water warmed up quicker. Goes to show you can't trust everything you read on the internet. Even though we got skunked on walleye it was still one of our favorite trips. My buddy and I typically stay at a resort or one of our family's cabins. Camping got us outside doing stuff a lot more. If we had a roof over our head and a TV we would have spent a lot less time fishing when the weather stunk.

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike
