I'm actually passing up an opportunity to go to Waubay this weekend, but plan to be out Saturday morning trying to get into the crappies that you've been catching trouble.

Have you been using any bait? I've been partial to my Go Devil Spoons from Scenic Tackle tipped with a crappie minnow head just about everywhere I fish, but I just may stop by Gander to get myself a #5 green & black glow rap and a few others for variety.

Fatty - I'm planning to be there Saturday around 6:30am with my Dad, Johnny and Johnny was checking if his Dad was interested. Your welcome to join us. My Dad is going to trailer a four wheeler over to haul our stuff out onto the lake. Give me a call Friday.

Hey Jacob,

I was looking to go fishing this weekend and was wondering what lake you guys were going to hit.

It's not my nature to withhold the name of a lake, but I took an oath to get someone else to tell me the name of the lake. You may want to try asking if any other FMers could tell you the name of the lake. Including your email address would be a good idea wink.gif

I sure hope it's worth it tomorrow. The weather forecast has been lowering the amount of wind lately. I was thinking 12 degrees with 20+ mph winds might be a little cold for hole hopping.

I'll probably be connecting two Yukons tomorrow, just because we haven't had an opportunity yet. There will probably be one or two one man houses with us as well.

Well the wind wasn't 20mph but it was blowing hard enough that some one had to sit in the portables all the time so they wouldn't blow across the lake.

The action was not what we hoped for. I drilled a pretty good amount of holes from 10-18 feet, found some nice structure and hole hopped. The I had to carry my ice ladel with me because the holes were freezing over pretty quick.

We ended up with a few crappies, a few perch and a catfish. The fish were looking a lot and biting very little. We tried glow raps, big jigs, little jigs, ratsos, plain minnow, waxies...

This weather doesn't make ice fishing easy.

Maybe next time frown.gif

It looked like I was in a popular spot judging by the number of froze over holes dotting the lake. I was surprised how few people were on the lake. I guess the weather scared off a few of the cold blooded fisherman this morning.

I'm not sure which wipeout you're talking about ice-man. I was running from one house to another and decided to do a little slip and slide becuase the ice was so smooth. That was fun. grin.gif My dad did take a digger once and another guy slid across the ice but I think he was trying the slip and slide that he saw me do. The ice was sure slick. I was the only one with ice cleats too. If it weren't for the four wheeler and trailer to haul everyone across the lake I'm sure there would have been more guys falling that day.

I won't be back there this weekend because I'm heading up the Leech Lake for the Eelpout Festival.

we will leave this lake alone now for the rest of the year, to many anglers to much noise and now tuff to fish. there are some small lakes around here i will destroy tommorow. if you were the one with 3-4 fish traps a wheeeler and what looked like a snowmobile trailer you were on my #3 spot how was it? [email protected] shoot me an e-mail.

We ended up with a couple crappies, a couple perch and a catfish. It was tough to get them to bite and there wasn't that many fish coming through. I don't know the lake very well but would think that the fish were either over deeper water or in the weeds - or somewhere we weren't confused.gif

NOT the deep, at laest not in the 200-300 holes in the deep we drilled. This is usually wear I shine but they haven't been there this year. If you find weeds on the lake let me know. I plan on starting to do some scouting with the camera soon, I think trouble is going to get one in the next couple of days, if not i think he is going to go crazy trying to get me to get one.

      I heard recently the water level had gone down some. Sound like folks are re really dealing with a mess.    Fishing pictures look like a good year in that regard.   Hope the property loss isn't terrible but seems bad.   Bill

      Yesterday was a grind to find bigger fish but we landed a few. Only 3 fish overall but they were all nice fish, all C&R. I do believe the sunfish are out of the shallows besides small ones. Thursday I took the nephews out and didn't see any on beds.

      Glad you keep coming back, Mark. And glad you still know the way to catch a slew of walleyes. I wish i could’ve learned more while you were here. But I appreciate all the information you provide on what worked for you.  Strange year. We just got part of our dock in and our boat. I fished a couple hours this morning for the first time on a Frazer hump you know and caught ten under 12” and one keeper which I released… a nice 26+“. I’m hoping more to come soon. I hope all is well with you, Dick

      Maybe the bamboozler will end up being like every fish story, some old timers holding their hands out as wide as possible to demonstrate to a youngster just how big it was....

    • muskie-mike
      My wife agrees about the pizza...was the best...  
    • Kettle
      Fished a bigger lake, fish or at least the eaters are on the mid lake humps. Water Temps 68 degrees, freezer now has 6 total as I've been eating fish often. Tomorrow we chase the 30" walleye for catch and release.
