trout reports?

Recommended Posts

I've been getting a few small trout out of Big Watab this winter, but I have never gone anywhere else in the winter for trout. Has anyone been fishing Christmas lake, Little Mud, or Courthouse pond this winter. I,ve been thinking about trying one of the places, any info on if they are biting, or what people are catching them on would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the site Troutsy.

Xmas has been slow so far, but courthouse has been good. As the weeks go by the fishing in Courthouse will slow because the trout get cleaned out of there.

Xmas has been slow for some, but for me its been hot. I've already caught 3 trout out of there so far. Saddly two I caught were out of season. The best bait for me so far has been crappie minnows hooked with a tear drop.

Good luck fishin.

I was up on Kremer Lake on Highway 38 north of Grand Rapids today. I ended up punching about 20 holes and on the last hole I cut, I caught a 14" splake on a marmooska jig w/ waxworm. The funny thing is, I also had a 3/8 bell sinker attached because I was checking the depth to set up a bobber rig. LOL I no sooner found bottom, got my slip knot in the right spot, and wham! I couldn't believe it, but it's like the second time that's happened to me. I then missed another one. Oh well, one is better than none. I was fishing the shorelines in about 12 feet of water.

    • A 12v camera with light available from Tomtop out of China $70 with 65 ft cable on reel. Its color HD resolution 1000tvl better than 720p used by Marcum & Aquavu HD units. (Except latest Marcum 1020p latest camera $650). Only drawback, it takes 20 to 30 days and $6 shiping. Link to Tomtop camera. They off a lot of camera options so you may want to da a bit of searching. https://m.tomtop.com/p-y3578-15.html?currency=USD&Warehouse=CN&aid=gplausyly&mid=10000018477&utm_source=SEM&utm_medium=Google Adwords&utm_campaign=TT_PLA_YLY&utm_content=2945&gclid=Cj0KCQiAxs3gBRDGARIsAO4tqq3wBcNnVRFIUf2QknDLs18FF6NrhJ9raJW9BAdaowvDD1gw08q_abwaAilBEALw_wcB Pic simple wire diagram.

    • Another month and it will be 12 years on here for me - and I might’ve been posted topless once in all that time. 🕺
    • I been single for 4 years now!!  well almost...  after the wife passed away I stayed single..  somehow that changed the last few months!!!  🤣
    • Looking to get a camera for nothing but connecting to the ice house TV.  Want good resolution and color for kids. What's the best economical solution? Thanks, EJ  
    • Dang, this thread has been an eye opener.  And here I only ignored my wife for 10 years, it's funny some of you are still married!   🤣
    • need to win on home ice, no matter how good they are. seems as though we lost our home ice advantage, looks like we may be getting the home cooking working again.
    • congrats on the 10 years. I got curious how long I have been here, I hit 16 years last month, I can't believe its been that long. 🤓
    • Looking fabulistic grainbelt!! How long did you let em swim in the marinade anyhow??
    • Great advice and sounds like you have had some great times on the great Upper Red Lake!  The difference on Red from having a good day to a great day can be as much as moving 20 feet away!  From what you explain I would try to befriend a local or rent an ice auger and bring with the cold gear.  Rent your house like you are and then throw the auger in the car and explore or just pop holes in the area of your house so you can get out enjoy the uniqueness of fishing outside and your chances for landing more fish increases greatly opposed to hard house fishing.  Good Luck!!
    • I have been here a good 17 years and I think there is only about 1 guy left here that I have met in person. Back in the day I knew and met several members who were frequent posters on FM. I met quite a few of them through the BP Catfish League but I think most of those guys are long gone.
