was wondering if anyone has been there recently. If so how give some fishing details and hopefully you had enough food because Tim and Justin always seem to eat all of our food when they stop in. I am headed up there in a few weeks with a group of nine and it cant get here fast enough.

We were up Jan 4-7 and had a great trip. 4 of us caught around 150 and the size was better than other years. We threw back quite a few 15-17" fish, even caught a few each night well after dark. As always the Lyon guys did a great job and with the fish biting you never go hungry ! We caught the majority on a deadstick and very close to the bottom, 6" or less. Gold jigs and Colored plain hooks seemed to be the best and I prefer shiners over fatheads. Some fish were caught jigging and up from the bottom a few feet so keep an eye on your Marcum.

Have fun and post when ya get back. I'm curious how far out they are now. We were within a mile from the access.

6 of us were at Lyon's Sleepers Feb.15-18 and had the most fun fishing we have ever had. Brought home 39 fish between 14&17. Big fish was a 24" walleye. Even got 4 nice jumbo perch. Pink and/or red plain hooks seemed to work the best. Used any type of pink/white jigging spoon to attract the fish then they would hit the dead stick. Very few hit the jig. Fat heads out produced shiners, but the big fish did come off the jigging spoon with 2 shiner heads on it.

fished with Lyons Feb. 22-24. Like normal, great time, great service. Fishing was below average, but the weather didnt really cooperate, very windy, cold and snowy. Caught about 20-25 fish a day, half went in the bucket, the other half were to small. We fished in the houses closest to shore and had a good morning bite, an ok late bite and very slow late morning/afternoon bite. Tim and Justin were their normal witty and charming selves, they really enjoyed our reading material and help make the trip a great time, even if they do occasionally sneak some of our foo and beverages into their pockets smile.gif

      First sits of the weekend occurred for me this past weekend. Friday morning was kind of odd I thought as birds where gobbling very early.  I figure because of the full moon, the sky was bright long before shooting time.  After flydown the gobblers were very quiet with very sporatic gobbling all morning.  Sat until noon without seeing a single bird. Friday afternoon was very active, good amount of gobbles between 4:30-6:30pm.  Had a group of 2 large gobblers walk by about 5pm and at 5:15pm had a group of 3 young toms walk by at 30 yrds not presenting a shot. My blind in very near a roost site so I left the blind about 7:30 so not to get caught at dark if they decided to roost there.  On approach to the bean field I watched 2 very large toms work the field, until the neighbor shot and both birds scooted out. Saturday, had Abigail with her 20ga.  Again plenty of early roost gobbling in all directions.  A little more gobbling after flydown as well.  I assume the same 3 young toms from Friday worked by us at 6:30am never really acknowledging us other than gobbling as they pastes us at 50yds.   About a half hour later, I called in a loud mouth hen that actually fanned out for our up right Avian x hen decoy.  That would be last bird sighted for the morning although we has gobblers walk by out of sight 2 more times. I left the woods alone the rest of the weekend as the landowners kids and grandkids were home for Easter and like to enjoy the woods when home.   In the end a good and frustrating weekend.  The birds were definitely not buying what I was selling as far as calling was concerned.  Something I was doing was off, as they may have walked by, did not really investigate much and didnt hardly look at the decoy.   Good luck guys and gals.

      Drove past Osakis on my way home this evening and it is pretty much ice free.

      Little O really lost the ice today!!!!!!!  won't be long now!!!!
    • Nix769
      Show some optimism!😝  The forecast has dropped some but I don't see the ice lasting much past the 1st.  I went out in front of my parents on Frazer...some of the latter ice to go...was sketchy enough I turned around and went back.  Opener is certainly a non-issue.  My boat goes in next wknd...but my back bay allows me to do that!

      Saw the first boat launched at Battle Point access about 2:00 this afternoon. Three guys were out for about an hour and came back and took the boat out. Don't know if they fished or just checked to see if any ice remained on the lake.
