1.8.19 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report

 

Hello from the NW Angle!

Fishing on the Minnesota side has remained strong for the first couple of weeks of ice fishing season. We are seeing a lot of Walleye in the slot being caught off of structure as well of plenty of keepers (Sauger and Walleye) deeper out in the mud. Currently our houses are between 17 and 24ft, hot colors have been pink and white, hammered gold and anything that glows.

Ice is developing quickly on the big lake with up to two feet in some places despite the mild temperatures we are experiencing.

On the North to Northwest side of Oak Island, conditions aren’t as favorable as previous years, use caution and stay to marked trails and plowed roads.

The pressure is still low on the Canadian side. We are seeing limits of Crappies being brought in, however it is still a mixed bag with good walleye action. The usual 30 feet is where crappies are being caught on wax worms and minnow heads, the smaller lure the better. 

The current between islands does slow down the ice making process, so keep aware of your surrounding and use caution.

    • Uni knot I use for all the time for leaders braid and fluoro. No glue needed
    • Standard auto/trailer lights, clearance, signal, break etc. use 16AWG wire. There based on 13.8vdc (altimeter charging voltage) with a 5% volt loss for wire length. Inside your Yetti, the greatest 12vdc current draw will be your furnace, 35,000 BTU suburban draw 9 amps. Fishing electronics (FL-8 205ma, FL-28 275 ma, camera 300ma, 12v TV 480ma) 1000ma = 1Amp. Use LED lights, the draw about 20% current compared to iridescent lights.If you decide to use a 12vdc to 120vac converter to charge your auger batteries, I suggest you direct connect the converter to your battery with wire and clamps provided.  Wire size calculator to help decide what you need https://www.wirebarn.com/Wire-Calculator-_ep_41.html
    • Voltage drop needs to be considered as well that is the only reason why I am thinking of just going with 12 AWG. I was just thinking of buying a roll each of red and black stranded THHN for 12VDC but curious if that be a bad idea and should use something like a marine type cable but that seems over kill?  https://www.amazon.com/American-Tinned-Oxygen-Copper-Sheathed/dp/B0799HTZB5/ref=mp_s_a_1_12?keywords=marine+cable&qid=1580136110&sprefix=marine+cable&sr=8-12
    • Or read and follow the instructions that came in the box with your new Garmin Nuvi GPS with Lifetime updates. And Not hit unsafe Links on Internet sites that really don't apply with the subject matter!  😉
    • got ya, my pellet smoker goes down to 150, that's why I was wondering...  I have done all the chicken cuts too except wings!!!
    • It all depends on the load you intend to be using. The higher the amperage draw the thicker the wire you will need so it doesn't overheat the wire. Led's use a fraction of an amp. 12 gauge is for heavy draw and is what I use for an extension cord from the generator to my house. 
    • I like a lot of different lures, but fishing stained waters, I usually start out with a chrome blue Rippin' Rap #7. H L
    • Guinness battered and fried with a dash or two of malt vinegar is another favorite.
    • Tie with a GT knot and you won't be needing super glue.
    • I use the 1/8oz stand up fireball more often than other jigs. 2" grub or sizmic shad, or half a nightcrawler, usually. H L
