Catch of a lifetime!

Must say my thanks goes out to ALL on the forum that I've gotten advice from this ice fishing season. We fished Zipple Bay Resort two times this year: last weekend & this past Wednesday. Both trips were great, great food & awesome fishing. The weekend trip the 3 of us (me & my hubby & our friend Mark) limited out on nice 14-17 walleyes, and just a couple sauger in the mix. So, decided to invite my MOM up with me for a girls day of fishing on the BIG POND! I ended up with the CATCH of a lifetime, I brought in a 29.5" walleye, weighing just over 8 lbs!! Mom caught a 26" walleye not 5 minutes later from the SAME hole, but of course we put that one back due to the slot limit. We had a great time, and limited on Walleyes, plus 4 sauger to the mix. Most fish we caught were in the slot limit, which REALLY surprised us! The bite was pretty steady, with 11:00am when we caught the biggest ones; then a night bite around 5:00pm or so...got off the lake before dark because of all the WATER, as it made the drive pretty scarey for us (belts on the Jeep rebelled, too)!! But all in all, was a wonderful day! Owe alot of it to you guys here on the forum, as listened to tips, jigs to use (we used gold jigs) and depths to fish (we were in 26 feet all day). Thanks again, and if someone knows how to add a link to this posting or a picture, I have a digital one of me, Mom and the fish...so give me instruction & I'll post. Otherwise, take my WORD for it, it's an awesome FISH!!

WomanAngler: Thanks for your report, and wow what a nice fish. We road out to the islands this last week with some guys from Cloquet. One was named John he owns a resturant in Cloquet and his brother Dave who is a police officer there. Dave got the 31" I mention in my Riverbend report. There dad was also along, he is in a wheel chair and I believe his name is Bernie Larson, perhaps you know them. They had some good fishing as well and great guys to jaw with on the 1 1/2 hr ride out there. AGain, congrats on your big fish. Bill

      Haha. We were using mostly Size 11's for our bites - Shadow Raps. Thanks man! Glad you enjoyed it. The last few times I've tried to document our Walleye outings up there we only get like 1 or 2 fish and I don't do anything with the footage so I was glad to catch a handful to edit into a video.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks
