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.

      What length of the HT BLUES are you looking for? I've seen some 24" @ Walmart stores. Some in the rod/reel combos n some just the rod itself. I got my 30" frm Frankie's bait in Chisago so if you're in that area you can check it out or give them a call. I remember seeing some @ Blue Ribbon baits in Maplewood also. You can also give them a call. I hope this helps.

      I shoot through the bottom..  Use plumbers putty to make a ring and use some to keep the diversity in place.   I just add enough water to make a good conductor.  Works great.  No worries about snagging the ducer outside the boat.  As for finders I have an old fish eagle, buddy just picked up a battery operated color unit from amazon says it worked good.

      I noticed this morning that it had heaved out in Miller Bay kind of between the DNR access and Four Mile Bar. Really raising heck with my shore. Going to have to take a sledge hammer to my shore tomorrow so I can get out.

      any current report on ice thickness around palisade?
    • PRO-V
      That's doubtful with the warm forecast.

      Just learned that someone broke through on Reno last night. He was pulling his 7'x12' fish house with his ATV and dropped the back of his fish house through on 3" out in the middle of the lake. Fortunately, nobody was hurt and he was able to somehow get it retrieved this morning. I guess they had to go over 100' from the front of the ATV to find 10" of ice.
