Took my first trip out on the"big lake" bobbin for lakers on sunday.
I have fished the "big lake" many times before but never in 175 ft of water and using steel line to jig with.
For three of us we got three lakers that ran about 5lbs a piece(Fresh lakers for dinner,finally!)
Looks like another style of fishin that the wife will have to deal with. grin.gif

Yeah sure is . Seems to take forever to get your bait down and get the fish up.
Condor and I and two other guys hit some small lakes in northern Wisconsin on saturday and the results were terrible, only three crappies for the whole day.
I havent heard from him about sunday afternoon. I suppose he will post sometime soon.

Jar:

Speaking of crappies, fished the Gordon Flowage again today, third time this winter and second time within a week.

Last time out, using the access at the dead end of Flowage Lane and driving across the lake bearing right to the half dozen permanent shacks, limited on pike, caught several bass to pounds and even a 13-inch crappie on 4-inch golden shiners and smelt with tip-ups.

Brought a smaller lighter-line tip-up today to go with the pike tips, and caught two crappies and a gill on fatheads on that tip before changing over to big shiner in the p.m.

Brought home three fat 3-lb pike and a couple crappies about 12 inches. Cold and windy. Brrrrr.

    • You know Dave if you wouldn't have bought an over priced pellet grill you could have had lobster with steak chunks instead of shrimp sausage! 😉
    • I checked the same area today but no luck. It could be someone else's honey hole or just a loner. I will keep looking! I enjoy the search, harvest and eating of mushrooms. I wish I would have found this hobby earlier in life!
    • Listened to my alarm this morning and went back to the rush. This time I went to an access point farther downstream. I found out that nothing gets your heart pumping in the morning like almost stepping on a baby deer! Little guy waited until the absolute last second to pop up and run away. Grass was only about a foot high, but I would have never seen him even if I was looking for him. Action was pretty slow, only caught 4 brownies. Lost a few others. This “new” spot has some potential. Looked like some promising spots farther downstream, that I just didn’t have the motivation to explore today.
    • Shrimp boil on my overpriced pellet grill up at the camper.  
    • I was out there New year's Eve and the day before just west of Birch Island and it was very slow (AND COLD!) 
    • That sounds all fine and dandy, but it is NOT the way it works... MOREL 101--If it was that easy there would be morel farms. I picked 7+ pounds today in 2 hours, 95% were within 50 yds of each other. All were probably from the same organism that 'lives' under the surface, when it is damaged from a disturbance in the soil AND it's symbiotic 'friend' (tree) is killed, the massive organism produces fruits (morels). The ones you leave behind simply dry up and sprinkling spores all over the country side is not going to make them grow everywhere. I know why my spots are only good for a year, wouldn't matter if any shrooms were harvested or not. I already know where I will be picking them next year!! I've developed a successful pattern😉 P.S. if anybody wants any I have filled my orders and have a fridge full again.
    • From the little bit I’ve researched morel harvesting, back when I actually DID hunt them, the common advice was to not over-harvest a spot, cut with a knife above the ground, and carry in a mesh bag so spores can disperse a little while you’re hauling them out of the woods.   It always seemed to make sense to me.
    • Congrats Minky!     I’m at a small lake in da middle of nowhere and haven’t had time to look and hardly enough signal to even view the forums. 😊
