Fished below a dam yesterday. Only had two hours to fish, but! Since I was fishing from shore the wind was a BIG problem!!! Had lots of hits, but with such a bow in my line hook sets stunk. Did manage two walleye( a 14 and a 10)one little crappie, and a couple of small bass. Not bad for one of my last outings for the year.

Was there last night. Very slow. Guy out in a kayak said he got three small walleye.

From shore only saw two fish caught. One small walleye and my HUGE 8 inch Northern!! grin

Finally fished the little river. Gorgeous morning  for a start! I should have had my limit of 5, but manage to mess up numerous times. Early in the morning the bite was very light. They would just pick it up. Most times I couldn't feel the bite. ( I have nerve damage in my hands; so not a lot of feeling)  Later you could feel the tick. Took two nice walleye and a big blue gill home. Lost several other fish, and caught 5 fun small mouth and a few small walleye. AND got bit off 6 times by northern! I tried cranks, and a spoon trying to catch the buggers, BUT!!

A GOOD morning!

Went over the other evening for a change.( normally fish mornings) Think I just got in on the tail end of the bite. Caught two small fish right away, but nothing after that. What was VERY disappointing was the fact I had FOUR otters swimming in the area below the dam not far from me. I saw how may fish one of them would kill during  a winter a few years ago.( by all the dead fish laying on the ice; bass, catfish northern and rough fish)  Don't want to think how many four will kill!:cry: Weather permitting, going to try in the morning before the storms move in.

Went over Sat. and Sun. mornings. Saturday was slow except for about half an hour when everybody was catching fish. Did my best floating a 2 in. power minnow suspended  about 4 ft. under a float; fished alongside rack bars in the river. Took two nice eaters home.

Sunday was slow for every one. Was having some luck again floating the minnow, but the location of the active fish I was looking into the sun. Had terrible time telling bites. Tried line watching  but with the wind it was tuff! Took one eater home to add the others. Had a nice meal .

Went over for a morning last week.( ben busy with family things!!) The water has been up, but was very clear. Fishing was slow for walleye, with just seeing three caught, Lots of northern with most being small. I did manage to loose about a 4 - 5 lb. trying to get it on shore before I was bit off. Almost made it!:D

 Hope to try this week end with warmer temps.

Went over for a while today.(12-8-15) Fishing was slow. Manage five small walleye, four smalleys, and two northern. Missed other bite as the wind made connecting hard at times. Still! Considering it's almost the middle of Dec., I'm not complaining!:D

Only got to be out once this spring( the river has been going up and down so much). Nothing  to show for it, but it REALLY felt good to be out!!  Hope for more stable water levels soon.

The walleye fishing has been very good lately. I got out a couple of times. Many nice eaters, seemingly all males.

    • Great pictures by all that have shared thus far!    Three of my best or my favorites anyway...        
    • I was out and about wetland areas this weekend and saw lots of waterfowl.  Many trumpeter swans, high flying tundra swans, gadwalls, shovelers, a few wood ducks, ring necks, hooded mergansers, , a pair of goldeneyes, and a loon.  I also saw many sandhill cranes.        
    • Volume wise it cuts the same as any othe 8" auger.  Does the Nils make finer chips than others?   I never saw the issue the few times I used mine.  Can you reverse the drill and push the slush down the hole.?
    • Sorry, but Ive had enough of the indepedent/liberturd fence sitter crowd pissing down their righteousness on reality.
    •   Makes no difference what place we are in or that Stall has scored 2 goals in the last 5 games (you call that bunches?).....who would not want to play the Wild in the first round at this point?  This is absolutley shocking to me....they appear to me like a ship without a Captain....7 games left to figure it out.
    •   I go fishing here whenever I need a laugh.  They are always biting.......well the big fat Sucker Fish anyway.
    • i have seen more useless products succeed, but I can't see a practical use for this thing. I do agree with the icing aspect as well as the battery life. U better have a option to free spool this. 
    • Bearsheet4brains to the rescue.    
    •   Then the bad wookies landed, trying to get everyone to believe they were gods and could cure everything with their magical potions, driving a few totally batpoop. Pretty soon there was name calling and bashing, and it just went on and on. Others that were smart left, and the ones still there continued arguing about what kind of people and things were better, with no respect for anyone or anything, since the gods no longer stepped in and stopped it, except to change words that had no meaning anyway. Pretty soon, it was all arguing wookies and people and other creatures, until the land of the forum exploded, throwing all the creatures spinning  out into space, where they formed their own little galaxies, and soon they all  started arguing and preaching and complaining and.....
    • Here is how the math works out on the 100 holes per day.  First off, not every hole gets fished.  Secondly, I am not just drilling holes for myself.  When I am with my kids or an older person or fishing partners who don't understand where the holes need to located on a particular area I might drill all the holes for 4 people to hole hop.  Thirdly, ice thickness plays a roll.  I will drill many more holes in a day on 16" of ice than 30".  I know this may be hard for some to understand but some people really truly actually will drill 100 holes in a day.  I am a very crafty ice fisherman who has adapted to extreme cold weather by using a portable "flip over" shelter and propane heater to keep myself warm and my equipment from icing up.  Yes, even when hole hopping.  That's why they call it a portable.  Haha.
