Antbody Get Out This Weekend??

Recommended Posts

JustinG

Well, I was just wondering if anybody got out this weekend and braved the weather? Not me- I had some things to do around the house and it seemed really windy to be messing with the portable by myself crazy.gif I did get out Wed, Thurs, Fri for a few hours each day and managed a few nice walleyes and crappies. I also caught the biggest perch I have ever seen and cut him open just to find the meat was full of worms!

Jim, the picture in the paper turned out great!!

The picture turned out real well, but was wondering why you had to ask if anyone got out fishing this weekend?? confused.gif Did the Little Woman crack the whip on you to get some of those projects done, and ban fishing until they are? Heh, heh, heh grin.gif

We now know who hears the pants in that family cool.gif

I know what you mean about the wind and portables. I didn't want to bother with that. I did a little tip up fishing from my car on Wild Rice yesterday, but didn't get anything.

Bunch of us did the Kewanis contest and then went eye fishing with good success. Good thing I had my ice anchors.

I should have known you would have a remark, "Mr. Great Outdoors". Naw, I was just curious if anybody took advantage of the last walleye weekend till May or was out and about for lakers. Crack the whip-Ha! I just figured it would be a good weekend to get chores done and then fish on nice days! smirk.gif I have a few more stops to make before ice fishing is done. Going back to Ontario after Lakers again on March 16-18, would like another day of chasing streamers and maybe this Wed, head out to Burntside. Can't forget the crappies either!

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      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!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
