Big eyes:

I haven't checked nor have I heard anything on the tullibees. However, I can tell you that the last 2 to 3 years have been very non-productive. If I get up there any time soon I will post.

The last time I was up I smacked the tulibees. I caught around a dozen 16-18"ers. Problem is, I was fishing for crappie. I only got two of those. The tulibee were suspended and over the deepest water in our bay. I have heard they are good smoked so I am hoping to sample some from our neighbors up north to see if it is something worth buying a smoker for. They were fun to catch so if they are tasty to boot....all the better. laugh.gif

How about a report from an absolute rookie out fishing for his first tullibees....

Dad and I went out on Leech on Saturday, neither one of us had angled for them before. Luckily we run into some fellows that gave us some good pointers.

We marked some fish, actually caught 9 total. From what I understand, that is pretty slow but we had fun and will be back again next year. Spent most of the day out there, got a good burn on the face and the bite came and went all day long.

Put the fish in the smoker on Sunday and we are good to go for a little bit with fresh smoked Tullibees.

The ice where we were at was really getting rotten, actually dropped the wheeler in not too far off shore. Had to winch it out with the other wheeler, I wouldn't try that again, even foot traffic was getting shakey.

      Any reports from Frazier bay at all? I’m thinking of making a run in my little boat the narrows. I’m itching to catch some walleye for the frying pan and think heading east may be my best bet but want to see if there’s any info out there before I make the 45 minutes trip!

      Saturday opener was great on Basswood for 3 of us.  Well, bitter sweet.  We brought 10 fish home; but due to the slot of only 1 over 20 inches we had to let 10 fish go.  Some  big eyes that afternoon

      it definitely is a good area! i appreciate the advice i''ll definitely get out there a couple times to give it a try. Yes, i do have a kayak. My friend is always talking about st johns.   Side note: Has anyone ever had a chance to get out to Calhoun or Lake of isles?  I heard the bass are there in fairly large size..

      I bet a lot of people fishing the big tourney wish you would have posted this before the tournament haha. What size jerkbaits were you guys using 10s? Great video.

      Best   I could do.  If you get deperate, Big Bay of Vermilion is only like 25 miles down the road.

      Those are some nice fat bass😉. Avon area is fun, lots of good water out there. Spunk chain has nice green bass and a bonus walleye now and then.  . Pelican and Pine are both worth a try a couple times a yr as well, have done very goid on Pine when its been too windy to get on the bigger lakes. You mentioned a kayak? St Johns lakes are awsome, though I haven't been out there in couple yrs

      Headed up tomorrow for Memorial weekend.  Any tips on walleye patterns?  Deep?  Shallow?  Still chubs/rainbows?  Not looking for spots or secrets, just a little info to get started.   Smallies move up yet with the water temp rising?
