Weekend reports......

8 posts in this topic

I'm guessing most are not out today, except one guy I know that is on the river chasing smallies, so I'll post now.

Saturday: I had a couple hours so I played around with the trolling set-up, making notes of the line counter reel and how "x" lure runs with "x" amount of line out, etc. No fish though.

Sunday: Was planning on 'tonka, but common sense prevailed.... it's nasty out. Not worth it to me, especially with the buoys being pulled.

What I've heard thus far was "slow" at best, any reports?

1 follow 1 30" in the net for me on Sat, it was all I could do to stand near the lake and snap a couple pics today. Lakes rocking today.

Went by the three primary east metro lakes, nobody out on any of them sunday! Chased quackers with hugobox instead of fishing.

i fished all day on Sunday (Tonka) right thru the blizzard and could hardly see for awhile, fish were moving right after the blizzard, would go around about 5xs on figure 8s but would not hit.. fished friday 6am to 7pm, 1 lost fish, 1 follow.. fished saturday 8am to 7pm, 1 lost fish, 0 follows..tough weekend... hardly caught a pike.. saw some walleye guys really nailing walleys in deeper water.. very minimal baitfish seen in the past 3 days...i am guessing they are hugging the bottom or burried in remaining weeds

Was out on Tonka Saturday, moved one fish, that was it, nothing in the boat. Were alot of guys out there chucking, wondering how anyone else did on Tonka this weekend??? I heard WBL was pretty hot on Friday.

Got a 42" on a Hellhound on Saturday. It was the only fish we saw for 4 hours of fishing.

Sounds like after the blizzard was the deal. I takes "reel men" to fish in yesterday conditions. I am humbled.

Fished western WI lakes Friday and Saturday. One little guy under 30" on jigs Friday. No other follows. Saturday moved two respectable fish, but wouldn't eat. Couldn't get them turned in the 8's either.

I'm surprised one fish didn't eat the HellHound. That fish was on fire a ways out. Pushing water and curling up like it was about to lunge, but no dice...made the heart palpitate though.

    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice.
