Alright it's that time again, the weekend is finally here its time to get down to some serious fishing again! The word according to Jim is good, walleyes and saugers have kicked it up a notch, fatheads on a gold 1/4 jig seems to be the ticket going vertical is the key! I'm sad to say I won't be making it out in the morning, I volunteered my services on saturday for the better good! I will for sure be out there sunday, plan on making a day of it! Jim nice chat with you don't catch them all, see you on the water sunday or in the boat! grin.gif

The verdict is in, gold jig tipped with a fatty, only two for the box,dragging a short snell 12" with a yellow floating head with a fatty, priceless! Rod left in holder catches 4 for the box and countless others missed, thanks Jim! I'm pumped up for the morning got everything loaded, tied and ready to go, should be on the river by 6ish can't hardly wait! cool.gif

Hit the riv from 2-5 tonight, boated 5 sauger/saugeye from 17-19", pretty motionless vertical presentation was the key, if I was dragging bottom I couldn't get a bite. A hold of the jig about 6-12" off was the key.

Whoever was in that G3 by Prescott asked my buddy about FM while I was on my phone. That was me in the Alumacraft/Suzuki. Nice talking to you out there whoever you are.

I was also at the river this morning from 7-1. I only boated one keeper. I saw other boats that did well in the early morning. I just suck for some reason lately. Vertical jigging was the key, but jigging that was almost motionless and very slow. I think it might be time for me to put the boat away. frown.gif

honda-was it an older gentleman and a younger boy in a lund by the kinni? We fished there and watch the older guy boat 3 eyes in just a few min. We ended up with two smallies and one nice crappie. Always next week.

Well the trip to the river started out late had some issues with a pump, came through prescott bridge area around 7 seen a couple being caught as I was going past. Got to the first area to try and right away put one in the box, then some smallies and the highlite of my day a 30" cat, what a fighter on 4lb line took a couple pics and let the guy go it was great, headed for another area picked up two for the box, couple sheeps another smallies, moved again to another spot couple bites but nothing to show for it, so off to another spot picked up one more for the box, two sheeps tried another area picked up one more for the box, worked that area till around 3 then headed back down the river and worked prescott bridge area for one more but it didn't happen. Ended the day with five and a very nice pic of a cat, what a great day! grin.gif

I got out for a few hours yesterday as well... worked the catfish area for a while - met up with a 'lurker' that commented on the valuable posts by Walli1 smile.gif.

Had a few nibbles at catfish but couldn't get a hook-set. Moved north and picked up a nice 18" eye. Also managed to boat 4 nice sauger, between 15 and 20 inches! All in all, a pretty darn good day out there!

No, most people that I saw that were doing better was at Prescott. Some lead core trolling, but I saw more caught on vertical jigging. I was vertical jiggin also but the fish just didn't like me. I want to go next weekend but I think it is going to be COLD. I think my open water season is close to a end. Good luck yalls.

I was down at Prescott on Saturday pulling cranks on leadcore and we did pretty OK. Between my buddy and myself we boated 10 walleyes / saugers between 18 and 23 inches

and 1 tiny silver bass. The key for us on Saturday was to tick the bottom with the baits. There's a lot of debris on the river bottom this time of year so great of attention has to be paid to your baits. What made this trip to the river interesting was that my batteries died after about 4 hours (I think I was only running on one) and the rest of the day was spent fishing blind (no depth finders, no GPS and no trolling motor). Kind of limits your ability to explore different areas. Oh well, I'll be back (hopefully with 2 fully charged batteries) on the 19th as my beautiful bride and I get to go visit my in-laws this weekend in Oshkosh.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
    • pikeandchester
      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
