Tom M, and I went out today and the fish came out to play. We must have cought 25-30 Walleyes. None over 16". 7 or 8 Northerns, all over 22" and one that was 32". A 28" Bowfin (Dogfish) which we should have wighted and a 17" White Bass. All fish came from 7-9 FOW trolling at 3+mph. The 32" northern Pike was cought while trolling at 3mph and I was reeling in fast to check my crankbait for weeds. There were no weeds on the crankbait only fish grin.gif.

My neighbor said he cought a 31" Northern today also. So I say; It was a good day.

All the Eyes were over flat gravel bottom near weed with deep water close by. I know it was gravel because my crankbait could bang bottom with out picking up weeds and moss in the areas where the eyes were. Oh yea! I almost forgot. The wind was blowing into the weeds in the areas where the Walleye's were. Oh it is so nice to have 10-15mph winds grin.gif. That 20-30mph stuff is getting tiresome frown.gif.

I tend to find Bass and Perch on the calmer side of the weeds/lake. Look to areas where the wind has been pounding shallow water, main lake point, sunken rock piles and such.

Remember, Speed and depth, Speed and depth, Speed and depth. Yes, I just watched the end of The Wizzard of OZ confused.gif.

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner

      Never heard of that in all my years! They look delicious! I take my dad to Rainy Lake ever June for his birthday and do a nice shore lunch. Walleye wings will be on the menu this year! Thanks for the thread!

      What do y’all think a week from now? Will Duluth be fishable from the boat. A lot of ice around right now. Might have to wait yet rather stay around Duluth than drive another half hour to two harbors.

      Will Green be ice free for Govenors opener?

      Just make sure there are not any tiny , tiny little bloodsuckers attached to the fins , as they so often are up on these front fins ..  I don't mean to spoil ur appetite... like the cheeks ,these wings need to come from a larger walleye in order to get much out it ..

      Scaled n skin on after gut n de-head. Wash n batter n sizzle. Fork at Dorsel n whole fillet falls onto plate or butter bun or hounds mouth. : ). Mmmmm sooo good.      I dream melt ice at Nine inches per week starting today -  Pike bay be open day before opener clear out to Marauderville. Then Bonnie n I n Polar Bear do opener on Docks as per our tradition. Dreams are fun.   Then everyone wants to can enjoy the fever reducer that is our sweet Vermilion. Big Smiles. Maybe weekend after opener?  All good but just miss our lil chunk of paradise x million. An lake friends n nuts.  Think warm thinks!  Thanks for letting me post some n butt in on threads a bit. Still two feet of snow here n same ice an nothing to do outside easy.  Peace...     T
