They are still biting but slowing down. My neighbor was out there yesterday and they caught a few. I absolutely can't believe how many fish have been taken out of that lake.

That one was a hair over 14 inches. i never weighed it but it was the biggest perch i have caught. I seemed to have the best luck early in the morning before the crowd shows up. Fun time.

Are you going to be out there this weekend? I'm putting my perm out on Lime in Avoca. I won't be in it on Saturday but the Mrs and I will be there on Sunday. If you're in the neighborhood come on by. I'm setting it right off the HWY 59 landing.

Nice one Bill, I got one that tickled the 15 inch mark in early jan there. They are dandy's aren't they.

Boiler, what do you catch on Avoca? always have seen people off the highway there but just figured they were spearing or something????

We have had some good luck on east the past week, and then again, we have had some dead days too. But I did get one real nice yellow belly. don't be jealous boys, i threw it back for you.

I have not, but my buddy has stayed there all season so far and had good luck in the last week being all by his self without any houses around him. best luck though has been late night. I can't do that.... fell asleep at East graham Wednesday night and woke up at 2am to a rattle reel... Yep, whiskered yellow belly... Then you know you need to go home. Let's just say Thursday was a bit of a struggle.

Heading to Bean today. Then gonna try to clean out some stunted perch at a buddies farm pond.

Lime in Avoca is mostly perch and northerns. Right off the highway landing people are either spearing or catching northerns.

Would it still be worth fishing this lake? I live about 1 1/2 hours away, long drive if they are not biting. I would like to catch one for the wall.

I have not heard anything recently, I have not got a report since mid January and then it was fairly slow.

Wow Nice Catch, Im Curious if you were using the old sucker minnow trick and letting them troll around, cant wait for the open water adventure with you, I think this year we have to get some sort of wager going with the other boat, I have a feeling we might be able to take them. Hope all is well Hey would you be interested in a day trip to Mil Lacs for some late ice perch, if so let me know. I need to get away from here for a day.

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck

      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
