  1. Hi All March is here and travel conditions are better then it’s been all year. Cheers
  2. Drove 16 hours, 1000 miles from Wisconsin to our destination Fort Peck Lake Montana. Our goal was to catch lake trout ice fishing. It wasn't more than 10 minutes into dropping lines in the water that we already had two hookups and one lake trout on the ice. Throughout the day we had steady action pulling lake trout through the ice. Eddie from Lakeridge Motel was super helpful in setting us up on general areas where to go, baits, and techniques. Stay tuned for Episodes Two and Three, the lake trout continued to get bigger each day! This day we set up on a nice 40-50 foot hump surrounded by deeper 70-80 foot water. Most of them were caught on either big spoons or big jigs with tubes, largo shad, or hair jigs. If you get the chance to ever make it out there, it is definitely a neat lake to check out for some amazing opportunity to catch giant lakers, walleye, and pike. Unfortunately we never made it around to targeting walleye or pike too much, but a few weeks ago a guy pulled up a 34" 16# walleye further up river. What a neat fishery. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i74ShAZoSZg
  3. Hi All Well hoping that's the last of the bone chilling temps. Ice travel has been outstanding. Picked up some crappies before the new year, even got a chance to fish with my daughter. Did a little Laker fishing - more looker then takers. But hey that's fishing Cheers Robert - photo credit Vic & Dots
  4. I apologize in advance if this has been talked about. If it has, please direct me to it. I am looking into getting another rod for lake trout fishing. I currently have a St Croix Premeire 32" (I created a longer handle for it, since it doesn't really come with one) and a Clam Dave Genz 34" H. I would like to try some of the rods out there that are a liitle longer. The three i have been curious about are the Clam Dave Genz Split Handle 40" H, Clam Jason Mitchell Mackinaw 38" MH, and the Wright & McGill Power Ice Max Ice Rod 50" H. I know there are better options out there with custom builds and places like Thorne Brothers. I really want to know what people think of these rods that i listed. This rod will also get used for jigging for pike. Thanks for any advice.
  5. Hello all, I am a guide up here on Chequamegon Bay and in the Apostle Islands. I will be doing a report here every week on the fishing here to keep people up to date on what is going on. I know after the passing of Mr. Hudson things have gone downhill here for updates and reports for this area. I will do my best to keep everyone updated and answer questions anyone has on the area be it fishing related or not. I look forward to talking and sharing information with everyone about this great fishery! Chequamegon Bay Fishing Report 5/28/2015 Fishing has remained good this week for Bass and Walleye in the Bay. The Bass have moved back in shallow and I have seen some fish back on their beds. Wacky rigs, Berkley Gulp!, and other soft plastics have been the go to for many anglers. The water clarity is great and sight fishing is a great way to target these fish. Top water is another great option for lure choice. Look to fish in 2ft or less and keep moving till you find a “hot stretch”. Walleyes continue to be caught at the head of the bay and off of second landing. Look a bit deeper than last week now with the warming water. 8-12ft is a good place to start, pulling crank baits or harnesses. Change up trolling speeds, colors, and depths until you find where the fish like and what they want that day. One thing to remember when trolling for walleyes is that the trophy fish usually are caught in deeper water 15-25ft on big, deep diving stick baits. They are out there chasing bait, find the bait and you will find some nice sized eyes along with them. A popular spot to target big walleyes is in and around the shipping channel, from the hot pond to the lighthouse. Some Anglers have been casting the mouth of fish creek as well as the hot pond from shore with great success on a mixed bag of pike, walleye, and bass. As always with walleye on the bay, low light periods are key to getting in on a good bite out there. Water temps in the Islands are rising and the fish have moved a bit deeper. Look in depths of 20-80 ft for the trout and salmon near shore. I like to run a mix of flatlines and dipsys to find where in the water these fish are roaming. Spoons, Flies, and stick baits are all great for trolling trout and salmon, This time of year I prefer the spoons and flies behind dipsys. Capt. Drew Matheus Reel Shot Adventures 715-209-5843
