Chequamegon Bay Grab Bag

8 posts in this topic

Well, things are heating up quick here, ice fishing speaking, on the pond in my backyard... Great to have these cold temps so early, as usually, it takes a lot longer to get a good solid freeze over this water. The entire Chequamegon Bay is now frozen solid, and we have been marching farther and farther each and everyday on new fishing holes in search of trout and salmon, walleyes,smallmouth bass, whitefish, perch, and pike. Even farther north, into the Apostle Islands area, we are seeing ice formation earlier then usual. This ice makes it look promising for an early start at our fantastic Lake Trout fishery through the ice.

Fishing wise, things have been nothing sort of fun and exciting, with some big fish being hooked and landed on our recent trips.. You just never know what you'll hook into next out here!!!

Been busy lately.. Sorry I havent responded earlier.

Fishing has been sporadic again this past week.. Rising and falling barometer, day after day.. just plain stinks.. But, still some fish being caught..

Bono is still putting out some fish in 15 to 26 FOW, near the lighthouse in 26 to 30 FOW, and off the coal dock in Washburn in 20 out to 40 FOW.. Thats all I will mention, due to other areas having questionable ice right now.

Good luck.

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
