1-04-10 Fished with Ryan Thompson who lives in California and his dad Mike. We had a pretty good day. Ryan brought home 3 Crappie, 3 Whites, 3 yellows, and a nice laker for his efforts, we let a few others go and had the line snap on a BIG fish the wind blew the leader around a boot and the fish ran and snapped the leader. The big white on the left was 15" and just north of 2.5 pounds. Ryan is getting that Bad Boy mounted for his camp.


1-06-10 Fished with Don and Eric. It was a windy day but we had decent fishing. We landed 8 rainbows from 14-18 inches. Wind was pretty cold on the hands so we snapped a pic or 2 but we didn't get a pic of the bigger ones. They had some great colors on them very shiny in the sunlight.

Had a nice trip today With Steve P and his friends. We got a very late start around 11 am but we had some pretty steady action for a few hours on JUMBO Yellows a couple big whites and some lake trout.
The gang brought out charcoal grills and tons of Lamb Kabobs and vodka (yup they're Russian)


Just look at those giant lamb kabobs, man i am still stuffed hours later.



Those are some Hog Yellows! More on the ground bottom right. The guy lying in the tub may have had a little too much Vodka!!

Fished with 4 great guys today on winni. It was a gift certificate from son to father to get the trip going. we had beautiful weather and even better fishing. The tally was 15 Lakers with one 25+in. hog and a salmon. We had Many more on the jigs that got off before the crew got a real feel for the jig stix and then they really started hitting them hard! Everybody got fish on the jigs and the tip-up.

Here's a pic of the Big Boy



Here's a video of the Big Boy


A quick video of a jigged laker


I recieved this after arriving home, this is what makes the work all worth it to me.
Adrien,
 
Thanks for a tremendous day of hard water fishing . . . I have had the opportunity to enjoy the lakes region for over 48 years. When I was a youngster my father taught me what he knew about ice fishing, we caught a couple over the years. I have spent the past 20 years with my son and nephews getting out on the ice and trying our best to catch fish, again, we caught a couple over the years, so the trend continued and we accepted this as the yield for ice fishing.
 
Our experience with you on Saturday 16 January 2010 landing 15 lake trout, 1 over 26 inches and the finale with a large salmon that we could see through the black ice as it came to the hole for release before breaking the water line was amazing. . .
 
Your knowledge, equipment, mentoring, demeanor, and focus for customer satisfaction and fun has energized my son and nephews to deploy your tactics and strategies for catching fish. They are now well equipped for the next generation.
 
Thanks again for the day and we will see you after ice out for your spring salmon fishing . . .

Hit the lake for the morning with Andrew. Wed had a great morning with a mixed bag of fish. The target was perch and had a couple set for bows. Caught lots of Jumbo yellows and some BIG whites, also picked up an 18 in rainbow at noon.  Some on tip-ups and a lot jigging. Northland Forage Minnow Jigs tipped with smelt pieces was the bait. We must have caught 50 6in. perch and nothing between 6 and 12in. and a bunch of jumbos, it was wierd. Andrew had never caught a white before, let alone a 2.25 pounder on a micro light 41 feet down, he is hooked!!! This was also his first ice rainbow so it was a great day for him all around.

The nice noontime Bow

Fished with Travis and Kevin from Conn. We had a great day on the ice. We landed 15 Lakers and 3 white perch and a couple dozen baby yellows that were annoying but kept us busy.

We got 13 of the lakers on tip ups and 2 lakers jigging. Both on Perch colored bucktails with a smelt on them for bait in 38 fow.

Fished with Steve P and the Mrs. from Maine today. We had a really nice day to be on the lake. Lakers were on a tea time bite today all coming in groups of 2 or 3 at a time with big lulls in between. We iced 13 Lakers and Steve had the big one of the day at 25.5 inches and it was our only jig fish, they wouldn't even look at the jigs today and all of a sudden one flew in and slammed steves jig it was on a 32" med-light eagle claw rod with 8 lb test and a little bucktail in perch color with a smelt on it, he had some power and used it. It was a great healthy, thick, blocky head, fatty.

Steves BAD BOY!!!


And the Mrs with a nice 23" chunk.

Tuesday fished some new areas i always wanted to try and it was alright we landed 11 lake trout and 1 salmon. All fish within 2 feet of bottom on smelt. No jigging done. The ice was super slick and back to almost clear black in most places, easy goin but slippery. Pictures are stuck on a camera phone

Wednesday i had Kieth and his 2 boys 8 and 10 from jersey out for some fishing. We headed out late and left early, it was enough for the boys who ice skated the whole time out there. We landed 7 lakers and had fun.

JJ - Keith - Max


Thursday it was nice out there except the snow that piled up about 1.5 inches was wet and melted when it hit you and made your clothes a little wet. The early bite was terrible probably because of the almost full moon, no clouds and clear black ice. But we picked up a couple early and then the bite really turned on at 9:45 until noon to get us up to 11 lakers a rainbow and a cusk. The rainbow was caught 32 feet down on a big airplane bucktail and sucker meat it was the last thing we expected to see but it was a 19" beauty. We had a lot of short strikes on the jigs plus we had 3 or 4 come unhooked while reaching for them in the hole, so we had a lot of action for sure just dropped a couple at the hole.

The great rainbow



The lake should be awesome this weekend i think that little bit of wet snow will freeze down and make for super easy walking and going with sleds and wheelers.

Friday we fished!! Probably not the brightest idea but we did. It was a blizzard out there we landed 7 lakers and finally called it a day when the traps started blowing out of the holes and flying down the lake. This is the 1 laker we did keep he freeze dried in about 4 minutes.


Derby Saturday we iced a bunch of whites and a bunch of yellows and a bunch of lakers and we let them all go. Looking at the saturday results i think we might have blown it because we had whites and yellows in the board size but judging by past years they wouldn't have made it, oh well will never know my scale said 2.18 on a couple of whites and 1.25 on a couple yellows, way out in the past years. We had fun and caught fish that was what counts anyways. Once again the Snow Cat proved invaluable for keeping everyone mobile and warm it was flat out nasty sat morning with piercing wind. No Pictures, all were released.

Derby Sunday we went for Rainbows and landed 8 and kept 6 and 2 made it on the board but got bumped out late on sunday just about 2.25 pounds i forgot exact weight but very close. Here's the gang with their 6 bows.
