I plan on staying at Gooseberry next weekend and I'm not going to be able to stop and see the WALL and get the lastest info from the guys at Marine General.Could you send me a email on the latest info on some areas that might be worth a try. I'm willing to go as far as the Temperance.

Thankyou

I havent fished by Gooseberry. All my shorecasting has been at Lester River, Brighton Beach, a few spots between Lester and French and Stoney Point. Brighton Beach has been the best.

Im sorry but I just dont have any recent info up Gooseberry way. Maybe Quickstrike has been? What do ya say Kent?

I have been tossing Orange Crocks with a silver tape on the front and a gold back and thats caught all my fish. I have tried several other colors but thats been the hot one.

Good luck to you. Oh dont be afraid to use a slinky rig with a crawler floating or some floating spawn sacks. Maybe a Ross bobber with a sinking spawn sack or looper bug and waxies under it as well.

If you post here maybe we can touch base as you come threw Dulth and I can show you what we use and even set ya up with some slinkies etc.

You can always e-mail me at the below .

I'm in muskie mode. You know where. You're right though, 2 jobs leaves precious little time for a guy to get out on the water. Priorities.............I guess.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!
