Another Day of Variety on Winni
« on: Mar 01, 2018, 07:11 PM »
My friend and I went out again Wednesday. We were targeting whites but ended up with three lakers four smallmouth and one white..no complaints...  The other day I caught the first 3 and my friend caught the rest. This time he caught the first four and I got the last four. LOL...   had several other good strikes.. and a few streaks from the bottom.  A gorgeous day on the ice. The two pics were the biggest smallmouth and laker   Luckily both mine this time,,,Truth be told the big laker was caught with my eyes closed, jigging and enjoying the sun nearly dozing off....Until I was jolted......Also a question for all of you that use electronics,,,many times yesterday when I "pounded the bottom" a lot of stuff went floating up by my lure on the flasher and then hung out about halfway up...wondering what you figure it is...still a vexilar newbie.

Sounds like a good day 👍🏻    The stuff your seeing is most likely debris kicking up from the bottom..

That was our guess... but it gets exciting for a few seconds thinking fish are coming up.....until they just float on by

I envy you guys that have enough ice left to get on.  The ice here in Michigan is not fishable, well maybe in the U.P. it is.   But, I'm not driving four hours to ice fish.  If I drive four hours, I'll head south with my boat, lol.

Come to think of it..if itís just hanging up about halfway, could also be smelt ?

That was the other guess...some kind of baitfish....I tried jigging up in the middle of it when they held in that area but had no luck...thanks for the info and good luck
