Headin' up on the 5th


Recommended Posts

I'll be pulling up my 14ft shack on Sunday. This will be my first big trip with my 8 year old son (hopefully it goes well.) He's shown remarkable patience and I think he's ready. I'll bring lots of stuff to keep him entertained of course. We will be going out on Adrian's road. The word I've heard right now is to head out around 8-10 miles...is that accurate? Any special hints/tips from anyone? I've taken my shack up there once before and I was only about a couple miles past Pine. Has anyone just been up there? Thanks in advance for any responses...

kais24 I was up there on Friday the 24th. We went out ten miles on Adrains road. The bite was slow but we got a few fish in the five hours we fished. The fish that where caught by us where on red hooks with a full shinner minnow.I did try a northland buckshot jig and would really shake it when there where no fish on the vex then when they came in if I did'nt stop the fish would leave if I stopped they would take the set line. We where in 32fow. The roads where in good shape when we went out. There are a few spots out about 9.5 miles where you can get a wheel house pulled in. Hope this helps and you and your son have a great trip.

I was in that area last weekend, we had the best luck thus far this year. Needed to work the fish by making them chase or getting them to bite on the drop. Seen fish all day on the vexilars. Small golden perch buck-shot rattle spoon or other small glow spoons seemed to work best tipped with minnow head. Most houses at the 3.5 and 9.5 mile mark on Adrians road. We are at 12+ and 34 feet. I will be leaving the spot on the 5th around noon after a few days with the kids on the ice. Hope this helps.

Planning on pulling my shack up on the 9th. Never been up before, just wondering what the snow conditions are like and if you guys pulling your shacks up yourself, do you just pay the resorts to use there roads or how does that work?

Thanks guys.... Strohslight31, Just stop in at Adrian's to pay their access fee and they'll give you a sheet to put on your dashboard that shows you've paid. They have been very helpful with me in the past. I'll let you guys know how I did when I get back...

Some quality fish coming through as high as 4' under the ice. I don't chase 'em unless it's a strong mark and you may get ignored by a lot of them, but enough are nice eyes to justify the effort.

Must be a thermocline or oxygen band at 15-18' & another up high.

Good Luck!

      We got .5” last night. Hasn’t affected the lake level yet. It’s been steady the past three days here (Frazer Bay). RLG

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?

      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
