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.

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
