I was up over the weekend at Red for the slabs but came up to LOTW for an afternoon on Sunday. I fished out of Zippel's from 12:30 till 6. I ended up with 5 keepers 2 walleye and 3 saugers all between 14-16 inches. I was at the west end of there main road between a couple of there houses that were not being used. I was in about 31 feet of water.

Funny thing happened... I had a rattle reel down with a big chub on. I figured that might be my chance at a lunker. Any way I had a bite and missed it and lost my minnow about 15 minutes later I caught a 13 inch sauger with my stolen minnow still in its mouth... Dang thing was still alive to so I put it back on the rattle real and caught a huge rough fish. I thought I had a monster eye or a snot tube... nope looked like a streched out sheephead about 3 feet long weighed about 10-15 pounds had a smallish head with a sucker mouth that was forward facing as opposed to pointing down if that makes sense. Any idea what it was?

Anyway fun afternoon it was my first crack at LOTW. I just used fatheads other than the one chub that was in the bucket. I caught the walleye on a glow green Gem-n-eye the sauger on a glow red fat boy.

Nobody was in the store when I bought my road pass but the nice Lady at the counter said people were doing OK.

Did it have a big fat tail? Sounds like you got a nice Eelpout.

      Good pics have been hard to come by.  But...   Yes, these are water pics mainly but we’ve hunted fields too. The field hunting has been tough for us with the size of crew we have and the age mix.  Good times; good people.   Besides, a guy that likes divers needs a little water tossed in.  I saw my bucket list can but wouldn’t water swat him to claim him.  Didn’t get a chance at him on the wing.

      Nice! Thx for sharing.  I have so many weird stories like that and it's nice to hear another strange one!  Great story and memory.

      Tough conditions this morning. Got tired of picking up decoys that were tipped over.  Post some of your waterfowl hunting pics Leech.

      Just so we're clear. You left this kind of harvest to drive around in 70 degree weather for 4 hours a day, why again? 😕  
    • leech~~
      Oh then your right, the DNR wouldn't be able to tell what it is until at least June!  😏  😆

      Snow?!  Hadn’t heard.  I’m still in Nodak and it’s been sunny and 69-70 degrees for highs!  Big wind yesterday but not so much today.  Birds are around but you have to look for em.  Been driving about 4 hours a day scouting.

      Holy snow!! It was coming down this morning around 8 am. Had geese flying but could not see them. Got buzzed by many flocks looking the wrong way as I could not look into the wind and snow. Had plenty close enough but never fired a shot. Off to the rifle range tomorrow with the old man.

      Well was able to get out in the kayak this afternoon as the wind went down was out for about 15 min and around 4pm while making my usual trolling pass on the green weed lines. I hooked up with a 36” 8.5lb northern! On a #6 Fire tiger flicker shad again using my baitcast rig with 30 braid. I paddled to the beech as I had no net or anyway to land it from the yak. As I was coming in my rod slipped out of my rod holder. I said ohh $&@! And figured well that’s a rough day. But for some crazy reason my rod and reel combo floated!! No sure how but it stayed right on the surface. I had no extra floatation on it either. All I can say is I think I had some special people watching over me today😉Retrieved the rod and locked it in the holder and made it to the beech and fought it the rest of the way in. By far the biggest fish from the kayak for me and one heck of a story. Well I think that was a great way to end the season.

      It's a small lake. Have ice fished out there in the winter. There is some decent crappies out there.  Never fished in the summer time. I want to say max depth is 25-30.
