I know many of you have CPR'd many fish this year already openwater, but I got my 1st one today. This beauty came out of Silver Lake on a White/Green paddletail on the UL rod. Fought it for a long time before I could get it on shore. SilverLakeCarp.jpg

That pig looks like it swallowed a football. How long before you figured out what it was?

As soon as I set the hook and my drag peeled out I knew I hadn't hooked into one of those Silver Lake crappies. It was a good fight on light tackle, the fish did what it wanted for a good 5-10 minutes.

Down to Earth

I went for a lunch time run around Silver Lake yesterday and the roughies were working the surface pretty heavy on the West side of the lake near shore. I remember watching an In Fisherman show a while back where they bobber fished for carp. May be a tatic to put into practice.

      Sounds like a blast!  My time has shifted to turkey hynting prep.  So it looks like I'm done despite good ice conditions.  But I'm a bit jealous of you all.

      One thing I'd like to add, they live about 2 miles north of remer on hwy 6.

      Went up to Knife lake today to see if i could find some slab crappies. After drilling countless holes and only 1 crappie to show for it was thinking about packing it in. Then i notice a mark 1ft under the ice, bam a nice 12in slab. fished 2:45-8pm, bite was good 6:30-8.  Caught a good amount of crappies, key was to be 6-8ft of water and most fish were 1-4ft down. All crappies were released, with how hard this lake gets its nice to see there's still slabs in there and wish the DNR would put a 5 crappie limit on the lake, even down to 3 would be great.

      Check out weezie outdoors. They guide bear, and all kind of things. I know they hunt Winnie for ducks. They also supply a dog if needed. They also do fish guiding. They have a website also.

      We always called them wing-dings! I also learned that trick on LOW. Very tasty!! Cliff

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?

      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.
